The researchers examined over 200 skulls and jaws, including bones from crocodiles and their extinct ancestors dating back 230 million years.

Crocodiles, alligators, and gharials, the only surviving crocodilians, are more cautious than...
China’s next-generation Long March 7A blasted off from its Wenchang launch site in the southern province of Hainan early on Friday, one year after a failed attempt. China’s first attempt to launch Long March 7A in March 2020 suffered a launch setback at the Wenchang Space Launch Pad. At the...
Since it was discovered more than a century ago, researchers have been confused by the Antikythera mechanism, a fascinating and baffling astronomical calculator that persists in the ancient world. Known to many as the world’s first analog device, the Antikythera Mechanism is the most advanced piece of engineering to survive...
It is the first time that such a phenomenon has been observed. Instead of rain, the cyclone sprayed electrons over an area of more than 1,000 square kilometers. Under the leadership of the Chinese scientist Qing-He Zhang from Shandong University, an international team of researchers has published the discovery of...
Ninjatitan zapatai lived approximately 140 million years ago (Early Cretaceous epoch) in what is now Patagonia, Argentina. “During evolutionary history, sauropods had different moments, different pulses of gigantism, which were not only related to the group of titanosaurs,” said Dr. Pablo Ariel Gallina, a paleontologist at the Fundación Azara in Maimonides University and...

Researchers believe they have figured out what is behind this strange reaction to cold in teeth a sensory pathway that has eluded science for years. The cold sensor discovered in the current research could pave the way for potential treatments for tooth pain and sensitivity, as well as some of...
The National Advisory Committee on Immunization is evaluating literature that shows that people afflicted with COVID-19 will boost their antibodies with only one dose of a vaccine. Infectious diseases expert Dr. Isaac Bogoch says if the data holds, it makes sense not just from a medical and scientific standpoint, but...
Scientists seeking to explain the repeated waves of coronavirus infections across the globe believe they have found a pattern: As pollen levels in outdoor air rose in 31 countries, COVID-19 cases intensified. Though pollen does not disperse the virus, the study found that it prevents the release of signal substances...
A 39-year-old woman with no chronic health problems died days after getting her second coronavirus vaccine. Though her autopsy findings are still awaiting, Kurill’s relatives told the news channel that she has no known health issues or pre-existing conditions.

As the coronavirus pandemic took root in India, there were concerns that the world's second-most populated country's precarious health infrastructure would sink.
The genetic material of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, is called ribonucleic acid (RNA). To replicate, and therefore establish infection, SARS-CoV-2 RNA must hijack a host cell and use the cell’s machinery to duplicate itself. During the process of duplicating the viral RNA, errors frequently occur. This results in viruses that...
According to a recent study, a team of researchers found seven distinctive forms of the novel coronavirus dispersed in the United States, new strains that are specific to and mutated throughout the United States. “There’s clearly something going on with this mutation,” Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center virologist and...
