The spacecraft InSight detected tremors from deep underneath the rust-colored surface of Mars indicating, for the first time ever, that the planet is geologically active. The quakes could potentially give seismologists insights into the interior composition of the planet. The Insight lander also uncovered magnetized rocks "consistent with a past dynamo with Earth-like strength" under the surface of the landing sight. Stirrings detected from deep below the surface of the Red Planet indicate, for the first time ever, that Mars is geologically active.

New research suggests that adversely training, e.g. yelling, your dog could cause longterm psychological harm. Dogs that had undergone adverse training methods were found to have higher cortisol levels in their saliva and displayed more stress behaviors. A few months after receiving training, it was found that the pups who had received adverse training had more pessimistic outlooks on whether they would be receiving a reward. Owning and training a dog can seriously test a person's patience. When your pup pees on your carpet, won't stop yelping, or knocks over the garbage can and eats the trash again you might understandably feel the urge to shout. But, however on-edge your dog's failure to conform to household rules puts you, try to restrai.

"Autism is caused by a lot of factors that we don't fully understand," says epidemiologist Dr Larry Brilliant, "but vaccines are not one of those factors.". Vaccines have saved hundreds of millions of children's lives—they have eradicated smallpox, nearly eradicated polio, and they have reduced the population explosion. How? Thanks to vaccinations, parents no longer expect 50% of their children to die from disease, so they have less children. Vaccines have protected the lives of children so effectively that anti-vax parents—who only have their children's best interests at heart—have lost sight of how critical vaccines are. When polio was rampant in the U.S., parents waited in line for hours and hours to have their children vaccinated. Safety.

In The Science of Storytelling , journalist Will Storr investigates the science behind great storytelling. While good plots are important, Storr writes that great stories revolve around complex characters. As in life, readers are drawn into flawed characters, yet many writers become too attached to their protagonists. We are all hallucinating.

A review of Pew Research studies reveals the views of American on the role of science in society. 4 key questions were asked to gauge feelings on genetic engineering, automation and human enhancement. Americans are split in how they view technology and many worry about its growing role. The Pew Research Center published a fascinating roundup of studies that revealed the opinions of the U.S. public on a number of key scientific issues.

The Northern European Enclosure Dam (NEED) would cut off the North and Baltic Seas from the Atlantic Ocean. It would save 15 countries, and up to 55 million people, from sea level rise—but at a cost. The idea is a warning more than a plan: NEED will be necessary if we don't stop global warming now. Unprecedented scale. Climate change is real, and it's bad.

On April 13, 2029, an icy chunk of space rock, wider than the Eiffel Tower is tall, will streak by Earth at 30 kilometers per second, grazing the planet's sphere of geostationary satellites. It will be the closest approach by one of the largest asteroids crossing Earth's orbit in the next decade. Observations of the asteroid, known as 99942 Apophis, for the Egyptian god of chaos, once suggested that its 2029 flyby would take it through a gravitational keyhole — a location in Earth's gravity field that would tug the asteroid's trajectory such that on its next flyby, in the year 2036, it would likely make a devastating impact. Thankfully, more recent observations have confirmed that the asteroid will sling by Earth without incident in both 20.

Talking to yourself is a healthy, widespread tendency among children and adults. Research suggests the practice supplies a bevy of benefits, from improved mental performance to greater emotional control. Self-talk is most beneficial when it combines thought and action or reinforces instructional framework. Our culture views talking to yourself as a habit for crazies and eccentrics.

Methane is the second most abundant greenhouse gas, and it's far more effective than carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmosphere. A recent study analyzed ice core samples from the pre-industrial era to measure the extent to which industry has played a role in increasing atmospheric methane levels. The researchers note that their results suggest action can be taken to stem methane pollution. Methane is the second most abundant greenhouse gas.

Stanford's Human Behavioral Biology course explores the interconnections between physiology and behavior. Most of the course is taught by Robert M. Sapolsky, a professor of biology, neurology and neurosciences at Stanford, and also an and contributor to . Check out some highlights from the course below. Imagine a 40-year-old man in the U.S. who's leading a quiet, suburban life.

A fetish is a sexual fixation on a specific object, activity or body part that becomes absolutely necessary to a person's sexual satisfaction. According to recent research, 1 in 7 people have fantasized about feet in a sexual way at least once in their lives. Prominent researcher , who established the "body image map" in the 1950s, explains that the sensory perception for our feet is located directly adjacent to the sensory perception area for our genitalia - which can explain the sexual fascination many people experience with feet. A brief introduction to fetishes. "Fetish" and "kink" are sometimes used interchangeably, but there are some key differences that are important to discuss when we're talking about the psychology of a specific sex.

Nobel Prize-winning physicist Frank Wilczek thinks we are not searching for aliens correctly. Instead of sending out and listening for signals, he proposes two new methods of looking for extraterrestrials. Spotting anomalies in planet temperature and atmosphere could yield clues of alien life, says the physicist. For noted theoretical physicist Frank Wilczek, finding aliens is a matter of figuring out what exactly we are looking for.

Residents of the small Alaskan town Kongiganak can no longer bury their dead. Their. , sucking graves into the once frozen ground. On the island of Sarichef near the Bering Strait, the village of. locals are considering relocating it entirely. Global warming has shown that permafrost is not so permanent after all. And as it begins to melt, it is reshaping the Arctic. The rapidly thawing ice layer is creating great sinkholes and hollows across the region as the ground begins to collapse in on itself. Erosion and landslides have become a problem without the ice that once held the soil together. Permafrost – any area of land that remains – can vary from less than a metre thick to more than 1,500 metres. Some of it is tens of thousands of years o.

Scientists electrically stimulated the brains of macaque monkeys in an effort to determine which areas are responsible for driving consciousness. The monkeys were anesthetized, and the goal was to see whether activating certain parts of the brain would wake up the animals. The forebrain's central lateral thalamus seems to be one of the "minimum mechanisms" necessary for consciousness. New research suggests a tiny part of the brain plays a key role in enabling consciousness.
