Dinosaur love nests unearthed by Colorado research group

Dinosaurs engaged in mating behavior similar to modern birds, leaving fossil evidence behind in 100-million year old rocks, according to new research. Paleontologist Martin Lockley of the University of Colorado Denver led a research team that discovered what he called large “scrapes” in prehistoric Dakota sandstone in western Colorado.

Globular Clusters Could Nurture Interstellar Civilizations

An ideal place to look for spacefaring civilizations may be within bunches of stars called globular clusters, a study claims—because they’re tightly packed with old stars. The idea is that the stars are within communicating distance of each other, and old enough to host planets that have evolved advanced life forms.

Real life King-Kong may have been doomed by changing landscape—and own size

An ape thought to be the largest in Earth’s history died out because it couldn’t adapt or get enough food in a changing landscape about 100,000 years ago, scientists argue in a new study. The giant ape Gigantopithecus weighed an estimated 200 to 500 kg, or 400 to 1,111 pounds. That’s up to three times heavier than the largest living species of gorilla, the Eastern lowland gorilla.

Scientists found DNA-like molecule that assemble itself

Chemists say they have found a way to make a DNA-like molecule assemble itself in a pond-like setting—potentially suggesting a key step in how life originated. The researchers actually worked with a simpler molecule, called pre-RNA. It’s hypothesized to have eventually evolved into DNA—one stopping point along the way having been the creation of a third substance, RNA, still used in the body to translate the code inscribed in DNA.
