EPIC once Again Captures Moon Crossing Earth's face

A NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite records a glance of the moon moving in front of the sunlit side of Earth for the second time within a year.

Adam Szabo, DSCOVR project scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, said it is for the second time in DSCOVR’s life that the moon moved between the spacecraft and Earth. Szabo said the project captured the event on July 5 having the same cadence and spatial resolution like that of the first 'lunar photobomb' of previous year.

Why Jet Lag Recovery takes Longer When One Flies to East

Why Jet Lag Recovery takes Longer When One Flies to East

Researchers of a study published on July 12 in the journal Chaos suggests why it is relatively more difficult to recover from jet lag when you fly to east. They have studied responses of certain brain cells toward different time zones. These cells are neuronal oscillator cells that regulate biological clock.

Wild capuchin monkeys in Brazil using stone tools for past at least seven centuries

A research paper published in the journal Current Biology has unveiled that wild capuchin monkeys in Brazil open cashew nuts using stone tools. Main interesting revelation is that they have been doing it for at least 700 years.

Primate archaeologist Michael Haslam, from the University of Oxford and team has found evidence explaining how monkeys have survived on hard-shelled fruits and seeds in the Northeast Brazil. From the research, it was found that primates were having novel ways to have food items available to them.

Cycling on regular basis lowers type-2-diabetes risk

Cycling on regular basis lowers type-2-diabetes risk

A new Danish study has found that those who cycle on regular basis are at lower risk to be diagnosed with type-2-diabetes. Even if a person has started cycling late in his/her life, the benefits are being witnessed.

Study researchers have unveiled that people who took up habitual cycling were at 20% lower risk for diabetes than non-cyclists. The researchers have also unveiled that cycling can also lessen the risk of many chronic diseases in all age groups.

Some dinosaurs could have used closed-mouth vocalizations

New research findings may change our perceptions about dinosaurs and turn them appear less scary to us. Researchers have suggested that some dinosaurs more likely cooed rather than roaring.

Dinosaurs have always been portrayed as frightening and vicious animal. But research findings of a new study may change our perception, as it has been suggested that some dinosaurs did not roar but more likely cooed.
