Simulation of the ice-water interface region. Water molecules are shown as spheres centered on the oxygen atom with bulk liquid regions (red) to the left and right and bulk ice (blue) in the center. The left-hand interfacial region is highlighted with color gradation to illustrate layered variation in average diffusion coefficient through this region.

New Stone Age People Discovered
A newly found Stone Age people featured darker skin, an unusual mix of primitive and modern features and had a strong taste for venison.
Fossils of the so-called “Red Deer Cave People” were unearthed in southwest China and may represent a new species of human.
The fossils from two caves, date to just 14,500 to 11,500 years ago. Until now, no hominid remains younger than 100,000 years old have been found in mainland East Asia resembling any other species than our own.

Lions (and Elephants) Captured in the Wild by Beetlecams

Wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas prefers to take close, wide-angle shots of animals from the ground.

Usually he’d quietly crawl up to them, but that would be too dangerous.

So he started building a prototype for a mobile camera called a “BeetleCam.” It resembles a large beetle as it moves and offers a beetle-like perspective.

Should we bioengineer superhumans that can better combat climate change?
Philosopher suggests that bioengineering people to be herbivores with small statures and cat-like eyes could help to save the planet.

By the year 2025, 52 countries — two-thirds of the world’s population — will likely experience water shortages, according to U.S. government data. Fortunately, there are several organizations around the planet dedicated to conserving our rivers and preserving our future. Here are 10 images of some of the world’s most majestic rivers, and some ways we can help them thrive.
