How meteoroids built up Iapetus’ mountain ridge

Moons in the solar system come in many different forms. Some are boulder-sized, while one is larger than the planet Mercury. Some are mixtures of rock and iron, while others hide oceans and rocky cores under icy surfaces. Two even look a bit like walnuts, each hosting a bulge of material around its equator. Interestingly, both of these, Iapetus and Pan, orbit Saturn. And had I written this post a month ago, “two” would have been “one.” Scientists discovered March 8 that Saturn’s tiny satelli

Base X: The Isle of Anthrax

Requisitioned from farmers, blitzed with anthrax-laden bombs in the 1940s, and made inhospitable to human and animal life for decades, the tiny Scottish island of Gruinard now serves as home to a flock of healthy sheep and a disreputable monument to the birth of biological warfare.

WATCH: Industrious Badger Buries Cow 3 Times Its Size

Badgers don't mess around. Of course, we already knew that, but researchers in Utah say they've found further proof of the American badger's industrious ways while studying scavenger behavior in Utah's Great Basin Desert. To watch how scavengers behave around a carcass, Evan Buechley, a doctoral candidate at the university rounded up calf remains and staked them out in the desert under the watchful eye of a camera trap. He expected to find coyotes, ravens, bobcats and turkey vultures pick

Earlier this week, Congress shut down a measure that would have required ISPs to get your approval to log and sell your browsing habits. Now, everyone’s freaking out and looking for solutions.
