Trio awarded chemistry Nobel for work on DNA repair

Nobel Prize Chemistry 2015Three scientists from Sweden, the United States and Turkey were awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry on Wednesday for showing how cells repair damaged DNA, work that can be used to develop new cancer treatments.

Swedish scientist Tomas Lindahl, American Paul Modrich and U.S.-Turkish national Aziz Sancar shared the $960,000 award.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said their work on DNA repair can be used for the development of new cancer treatments.


Nobel Prize for missing piece in neutrino mass puzzle

Nobel PrizeTakaaki Kajita of Japan and Arthur McDonald of Canada won the Nobel Prize in physics on Tuesday for discovering that tiny particles called neutrinos change identities as they whiz through the universe, proving that they have mass.

By uncovering the "chameleon-like" nature of neutrinos, the laureates had solved a long-standing puzzle in particle physics that could alter our grasp of the cosmos, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said.


Farmer digs up woolly mammoth bones in Michigan soy field

Farmer digs up woolly mammothA farmer near Chelsea made a startling discovery Monday night: bones of a woolly mammoth possibly butchered by early human hunters thousands of years ago.

James Bristle and a friend were digging in a soy field off of Scio Church Road west of Fletcher in Washtenaw County's Lima Township when they came up with something very out of the ordinary.

"It was probably a rib bone that


Nasa scientists find evidence of flowing water on Mars

Water on MarsLiquid water runs down canyons and crater walls over the summer months on Mars, according to researchers who say the discovery raises the chances of being home to some form of life.

The trickles leave long, dark stains on the Martian terrain that can reach hundreds of metres downhill in the warmer months, before they dry up in the autumn as surface temperatures drop.


Supermassive black hole bigger than scientists thought was possible

giant black holeAstronomers in England have discovered a supermassive black hole many times larger than should be possible.

In astrophysics, very few rules are hard and fast. There are mostly just loose parameters, theories and informed expectations -- expectations that are constantly being subverted by newly discovered phenomena.


Electron transport between species discovered in deep-sea research

Electrons transfer between speiciesResearchers at the California Institute of Technology have discovered two microbial species capable of sharing the energy needed to consume methane through electron transfer without direct contact.

Researchers say it is the first time interspecies electron transport, or the external passing of electrons from one type of cell to another, has been discovered among microorganisms in a natural setting.


Mini triceratops-like dinosaur could be new species

New triceratops speciessA team of Colorado researchers say there's nothing else like the dinosaur specimen they unearthed. Though it's yet to be given a scientific name, scientists dubbed the dino "Ava," due to its resemblance of triceratops relative Avaceratops.

The dinosaur's fossils were discovered at the Judith River Formation in Montana. They're dated at 75 million years old, placing the dino's heyday within the Campanian stage of the Late Cretaceous.
