Small horned dinosaur from China, a Triceratops relative, walked on two feet

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 02:40 PM PDT

Auroraceratops, a bipedal dinosaur that lived roughly 115 million years ago, has been newly described by paleontologists. More than 80 individuals of this species have been found in China's Gansu Province.

Shifts to renewable energy can drive up energy poverty, study finds

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 12:19 PM PDT

Efforts to shift away from fossil fuels and replace oil and coal with renewable energy sources can help reduce carbon emissions but do so at the expense of increased inequality, according to a new study.

Device channels heat into light

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 10:33 AM PDT

Engineers have shown how their carbon nanotube films can be used to create a device to recycle waste heat. The device could enhance solar cell output and increase the efficiency of industrial waste-heat recovery.

Scientists deepen understanding of magnetic fields surrounding Earth and other planets

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 10:33 AM PDT

New research into waves that travel through Earth's magnetosphere deepen our understanding of the region and its interaction with our own planet, and open up new ways to study other planets across the galaxy.

Sound mind: Detecting depression through voice

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 10:33 AM PDT

AI algorithms can now more accurately detect depressed mood using the sound of your voice, according to new research.

Hear them roar: How humans and chickadees understand each other

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 10:33 AM PDT

Is there something universal about the sounds we make that allows vocal learners -- like songbirds -- to figure out how we're feeling? Sounds like it, according to new research.

C. difficile resists hospital disinfectant, persists on hospital gowns, stainless steel

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 10:33 AM PDT

Surgical gowns and stainless steel remained contaminated with the pathogen Clostridium difficile even after being treated with the recommended disinfectant, according to new research.

Insects feel persistent pain after injury, evidence suggests

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 09:02 AM PDT

Scientists have known insects experience something like pain, but new research provides compelling evidence suggesting that insects also experience chronic pain that lasts long after an initial injury has healed.

New gene linked to healthy aging in worms

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 09:02 AM PDT

Damage to gene causes impaired movement in adult worms.

Early arrival of spring disrupts the mutualism between plants and pollinators

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 09:02 AM PDT

Early snowmelt increases the risk of phenological mismatch, in which the flowering of periodic plants and pollinators fall out of sync, compromising seed production.

'The way you move': Body structure brings coordinated movement

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 09:02 AM PDT

A computer model shows that a starfish-like animal can coordinate rhythmic motion based on body structure without the brain telling them to do so. This provides insights useful for physiology and robotics.

Better policies around toxic chemicals urged

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 09:02 AM PDT

Researchers contend that failures to protect human and environmental health from toxic chemicals result from flawed governance, and lay out a plan for improved policies.

HIV: Reprogramming cells to control infection

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 09:02 AM PDT

Following research on cohorts, scientists have described the characteristics of CD8 immune cells in these 'HIV controller' subjects. The unique antiviral power of these immune cells can be attributed to an optimal metabolic program that confers persistence and the ability to react effectively against infected cells. Working ex vivo, the scientists successfully reprogrammed cells from infected non-controller individuals to give them the same antiviral potency as controllers' cells.

Seeing greenery linked to less intense and frequent unhealthy cravings

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 09:02 AM PDT

New research shows that being able to see green spaces from your home is associated with reduced cravings for alcohol, cigarettes and harmful foods.

Super salty, subzero Arctic water provides peek at possible life on other planets

Posted: 12 Jul 2019 07:57 AM PDT

Researchers have discovered thriving communities of bacteria in Alaskan 'cryopegs,' trapped layers of sediment with water so salty that it remains liquid at below-freezing temperatures. The setting may be similar to environments on Mars, Saturn's moon Titan, or other bodies farther from the sun.

Tour de France pelotons governed by sight, not aerodynamics

Posted: 10 Jul 2019 10:20 AM PDT

In a recent study, researchers reveal that vision is the main factor in the formation and shape of a peloton.
