As part of new research on the Egyptian pyramids, one team is scanning cosmic particles to learn about pyramid construction.
In an exciting and colorful advance along the path of growing crops in anti-gravity, NASA astronauts recently grew zinnia flowers. The new crop will help Veggie program participants learn more about growing flowering crops like tomatoes in anti-gravity, and they'll help to soothe isolation and loneliness in space.
A research team at Purdue University is working on making tiny robots smaller and smaller, with the plan later to deploy them into human cells.
A recent study of blubber from killer whales and certain dolphins and porpoises off industrialized Europe found a very high level of exposure to one banned chemical. The study urges better storage restrictions.
While honeybee hives are generally thought of as buzzing centers of cooperation, if the queen dies, male genes drive the worker bees to choose their own paths, according to new and advanced research.
North Atlantic Right Whales might number around 500 in the wild, a small number for a very large and mysterious animal. Nature World News recently talked with scientist Amy Knowlton at the Right Whale Research Program at Boston's New England Aquarium, about how to save this whale.

Recent findings about prehistoric and more recent tsunamis off one of the Aleutian islands will provide background for other Pacific Rim preparedness, says a study.
A very high number of common murres, seabirds known for diving and "flying" underwater, were found dead on a beach in Alaska. They are thought to have starved.
The remains and ribs of a Revolutionary War-era ship was recently found mired in the Potomac River, near the site where a new hotel construction is proposed.
Nature World News recently spoke with the chief scientist, Brad Barr, on a NOAA expedition in Arctic Alaska. His team recently found parts of two whaling ships left behind by surprise pack ice in 1871. Climate warming likely made the archaeological materials easier to find, because the Chukchi Sea survey area was free of ice.
Several northern states have seen declines in their moose populations. Maine and New Hampshire biologists are currently radio-collaring moose in order to monitor them for general health, tick infestations and mortality. Will they learn enough to know whether moose are threatened or not, and why?
Tortoiseshell and calico cats were found to be the fiery ones in the bunch, according to a new study from UC Davis.
