Magnetic Cells Said To Guide Animals

MUNICH, Germany, (UPI) — Scientists say they have identified magnetic cells in fish that allow them to accomplish remarkable feats of navigation by sensing Earth’s magnetic fields. Researches examined rainbow trout, which can unerringly swim back to their original hatching ground after spending 3 years at sea and travelling as much as 200 miles from […]

New Moon Orbiting Pluto Found

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., (UPI) — Astronomers say the Hubble Space Telescope has found another moon orbiting Pluto, the solar system’s former ninth planet now demoted to dwarf status. The moon dubbed P5, estimated to be irregular in shape and 6 to 15 miles across, joins Charon, Hydra, Nix and P4 in orbit around the icy […]

Lawmakers Target U.S. Green Loans

WASHINGTON, (UPI) — Republican leaders in the United States announced they introduced a bill that proposes more transparency in loans for renewable energy programs. Reps. Fred Upton, R-Mich., chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., chairman of an investigative subcommittee, introduced draft legislation that would phase out a loan guarantee […]

Sounds Of Northern Lights Confirmed

AALTO, Finland (UPI) — Sounds associated with auroras, or northern lights, described in folktales and by wilderness wanderers, have been confirmed by Finnish researchers. Scientists at Aalto University using microphones determined the crackles or muffled bangs are formed about 230 feet above ground level. “Our research proved that, during the occurrence of the northern lights, […]

Photos Said Unreliable For Identification

GLASGOW, Scotland (UPI) — Photographs of faces are not always proof of a person’s identity, with serious implications for the accuracy of passport photographs, British researchers say. An image of a person may look strikingly different from one photograph to the next, the Economic and Social Research Council said Monday in announcing the results of […]

Warm, Dry June Adds To U.S. Records

WASHINGTON (UPI) — The United States experienced a record-warm first half of the year and the warmest 12-month period since record-keeping began in 1895, researchers say. June temperatures contributed to those records, as the average temperature for the contiguous United States during the month was 71.2 degrees Fahrenheit, 2 degrees above the 20th century average, […]

Math Anxiety Higher In Girls Than In Boys?

CAMBRIDGE, England (UPI) — More girls than boys are likely to experience math anxiety that may hurt their classroom performance in the subject, British researchers say. High math anxiety was a stronger predictor of poor test performance for girls than for boys, researchers from Cambridge and Oxford Universities said — and could keep girls from […]

Scientists Create 'MRI' Of Sun's Interior

NEW YORK (UPI) –  U.S. and German scientists say an “MRI” of the sun’s interior plasma motions is yielding clues to how it transfers heat from its deep interior to its surface. Researchers at New York University with colleagues from NASA and the Max Planck Institute in Germany say the findings upend our understanding of […]

Research: More Cars To Become 'Connected'

OYSTER BAY, N.Y. (UPI) — Sixty percent of the world’s cars will include features such as built-in Internet and smartphone connectivity within 5 years, a U.S. market research firm says. And in the United States and Western Europe, that figure will exceed 80 percent of cars, New York-based ABI Research reported. At present, only 11.4 […]

Robot Legs Walk In 'Biological' Manner

TUCSON (UPI) — U.S. robotics scientists say they’ve produced a set of robot legs they believe is the first to walk in a biologically accurate manner. Researchers say the legs have allowed them to investigate the processes underlying walking in humans and may bolster theories of how babies learn to walk. The research could also […]
