Hualianceratops Were More Modest than their Successors, say Researchers

Triceratops were called as one of the most impressive beasts during the Cretaceous Period, but researchers after studying a recently found fossil of one of the oldest-known members of this group found that their predecessors were modest creatures.

A team of scientists on Wednesday announced that they have found remains of a spaniel-sized dinosaur in the Gobi Desert in western China’s Xinjiang Province. Scientists named the dinosaur as Hualianceratops that lived about 160 million years ago late in the Jurassic Period.

IBM To Continue Research to Build Quantum Computers

-IBM To Continue Research to Build Quantum Computers

IBM on November 8 announced that IARPA, the intelligence community’s research arm, has awarded the American computer hardware company a multi-year grant to continue its research on building quantum computers.

Classical computers consist of several billions of tiny transistors. Those are switches, essentially, that can be turned on or off, represented on computers as 1 or 0. In quantum computing, a transistor consists of a single atom, which can exist as a sort of combination of 1 and 0 at the same time.

Pesticide Found in Milk Years Ago can contribute to Parkinson's disease: Study

Pesticide Found in Milk Years Ago can contribute to Parkinson's disease: Study

A pineapple pesticide linked to milk in Hawaii also has a connection with men’s brains, and those men may develop Parkinson's disease, according to a new study published in journal Neuron.

The study has made its place in a long list of studies that have linked various pesticides to the degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that mainly affects the motor system. The new findings have also supported an observation stating that individuals who smoke are safe against Parkinson's disease.

Surrogate Hound gives Birth to First Ever Puppies Conceived in Test Tubes

Surrogate Hound gives Birth to First Ever Puppies Conceived in Test Tubes

A team of researchers in the United States created the world’s first litter of puppies through in vitro fertilization (IVF). The researchers believe this breakthrough could help to eradicate disease in dogs and in humans as well.

Dr. Alexander Travis, who runs the lab at the Baker Institute for Animal Health at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, New York, said they gently handled a puppy and cleaned it with a towel. Crying of the puppy was an approval for their success.

No alien megastructure present around KIC 8462852: Research

No alien megastructure present around KIC 8462852, confirm researchers

No evidence has been found of an advanced civilization orbiting the anomalous star KIC 8462852 and beaming intentional laser signals towards earth. The star has confused researchers for quite a long time because it used to show irregular dimming that has not been seen in another star.

This erratic dimming led to speculations that KIC 8462852 is being orbiting by a giant structure built by an extraterrestrial civilization. In order to know the truth, scientists have looked for laser pulses from the star, but did not find anything.

We Exhibit ‘Inattentional Deafness’ to Sound while being indulged in Visionary Task

Have you ever tried to get attention of someone busy in reading book, playing video game or watching TV or computer? You don’t have to worry now as you are not being intentionally ignored for not receiving response from your friend. Moreover, from next time whenever your friend ignores you while doing some visional task, don’t ever fight with him. Researchers from the University College London has come up with a new term called ‘inattentional deafness’, which states that concentrating one’s attention on a visual task can makes person temporarily deaf.

Salty regions could be behind bright spots on Dwarf planet Ceres: NASA Research

Salty regions could be behind bright spots on Dwarf planet Ceres: NASA Research

Ceres has been throwing mysteries on astronomers and the recently noticed bright spots on the dwarf planet were hot topic of discussion among space scientists. NASA’s Dawn spacecraft has sent some close images of Ceres and NASA team working on the project has made a video with the images taken by Dawn mission. The bright spots on Ceres could be due to high salt concentration regions on the dwarf planet.

Solar Super-flare is possible, but conditions required are extremely unlikely to occur on Sun: Study

Solar Super-flare is possible, but conditions required are extremely unlikely to occur on Sun: Study

After finding a solar super-flare on a star similar to our sun has led researchers predict that earth’s sun is also capable of producing such super-flare that can prove destructing for earth. Researchers at University of Warwick located the super-flare on the star, called KIC9655129, using data gathered by NASA’s Kepler space telescope.
