A group of researchers from France "traveled" to the center of the Earth to find out the temperature in the heart of our planet. They determined that between solid and liquid layers of the earth's core, temperatures make up about 6,000 degrees. The research has thus corrected an error made by their German colleagues 20 years ago
The main effects, according to Nature Climate Change, should be felt in the Amazon, Sub-Saharan Africa, Central America and Australia. Half of the common species of plants and animals can suffer a decline in their habitat due to climate change in the coming decades, warns a study published in the journal, Nature Climate Change.
LONDON (9 May 2013) - In the wake of an Australian investigation into cosmetics' brands and inaccurate information provided to consumers, Humane Society International urges companies to join forces with its global campaign Be Cruelty-Free and end animal testing.

The recent news is scientists have discovered that some snippets of DNA from a fish, they once thought was extinct, can cause mice to grow limbs. This is wrongly being interpreted and hailed by the mass media as evidence that fish evolved legs. Isn't it very interesting that the fish they got the DNA from doesn't have any legs?
A new Russian nuclear rocket will multiply the speed of movement through space: a flight round trip to Mars will take two to four months, while the current rocket requires a year and a half to two years to accomplish the same trip. With new ship, a flight round trip to Mars will take 2 to 4 months which is absolutely amazing...
It turns out that there is some kind of fish sign language understood by the representatives of various species and invertebrates. Biologists from the UK figured this out by observing the behavior of coral grouper and salmon. Using an interesting alarm, fish predators informed their neighbors about the location of prey they could not reach
Climate science is so complex that there is very little measurement of evidence or real science involved. One of the few relevant measurements is the average global temperature measured through time. Recorded temperatures show no significant increase over the past century. Frauds used numerous methods of showing an increase
BRUSSELS - The European General Court has wisely decided to uphold the European Union's ban on commercial trade in seal products. The court rejected a spurious attempt by the sealing and fur trade industries and some Inuit representatives to undermine the ban, which plays a key role in curbing the cruel global trade.

Sooner or later, mankind will be forced to leave planet Earth - many scientists from different countries of the world share this idea. Reasons for that are plentiful: all kinds of disasters, world wars, etc. The colonization of space seems to be a way out of this situation. Will mankind be able to live on other planets?
The recent news is that scientists have discovered some snippets of DNA from an ancient fish that can cause mice to grow limbs. This is wrongly being hailed as evidence that fish had developed legs. Imagine an evolving fish having part fins and part feet, with the fins evolving into feet. Where's the survival advantage?
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the U.S. Department of Defense responsible for the development of technologies for the armed forces is looking for developers of a new project. Precisely, it is looking for ways to make defense electronics used at the battlefield "fragile" and self-destructing
