Study: Amazon River is at least 9 million years old

Amazon River is 9m years oldAccording to new research, the Amazon River is between 9 and 9.4 million years old. Estimates that the river is considerably younger are wrong, scientists say.

Researchers at the University of Amsterdam and the University of Brasilia analyzed sediments from an offshore borehole drilled for oil and gas exploration. Their findings revealed a shift in sediment composition and plant debris during the late Miocene, between 9 and 9.4 million years ago, suggesting a change in the source of the river from the tropical lowlands to the peaks of the Andes.

Hubble finds young super star cluster, giant star

Super star cluster discoveredNASA scientists have gotten a closer look at one of the largest stars ever discovered in a super star cluster, thanks to images from the Hubble Space Telescope.

A new image from Hubble has revealed a young super star cluster called Westerlund 1, home to a gigantic star known as Westerlund 1-26.

Westerlund 1 is a star cluster 15,000 light-years away from Earth in the Milky Way galaxy.

Newfound 3.77-billion-year-old fossils could be earliest evidence of life on Earth

microfossils 3.77 billion years oldTiny, tubular structures uncovered in ancient Canadian rocks could be remnants of some of the earliest life on Earth, scientists say.

The straw-shaped “microfossils,” narrower than the width of a human hair and invisible to the naked eye, are believed to come from ancient microbes, according to a new study in the journal Nature. Scientists debate the age of the specimens, but the authors' youngest estimate — 3.77 billion years — would make these fossils the oldest ever found.

Thrilling discovery of seven Earth-sized planets orbiting nearby star

Secen earth siaze planets discoveredA huddle of seven worlds, all close in size to Earth, and perhaps warm enough for water and the life it can sustain, has been spotted around a small, faint star in the constellation of Aquarius.

The discovery, which has thrilled astronomers, has raised hopes that the hunt for alien life beyond the solar system can start much sooner than previously thought, with the next generation of telescopes that are due to switch on in the next decade.

Astronomers find 60 new planets, including a 'super Earth'

Gliese 411 BA group of international researchers hit the planetary jackpot by spotting 60 new planets, including a “super Earth.”

The team also found evidence of 54 other planets, bringing the total of new exoplanets to over 100, according to a statement from the University of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom, which participated in the study.

Human effects on Earth are 170 times greater than natural forces: Study

Human effects on earthScientists at the Australian National University have come up with a simple equation to calculate the impact of human forces on planet Earth. The numbers suggests humans are accelerating climate change by a factor 170 times greater than natural forces.

"Over the past 7,000 years the primary forces driving change have been astronomical -- changes in solar intensity and subtle changes in orbital parameters, along with a few volcanoes, " Will Steffen, a professor at ANU's Climate Change Institute, explained in a news release. "They have driven a rate of change of 0.01 degrees Celsius per century."

Scientists boycott journals, conferences in protest of Trump travel ban

Scientists agaisnt TrumpThousands of scientists have pledged to boycott conferences and scientific journals in protest of President Trump's executive order that temporarily bars citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States.

"We question the intellectual integrity of these spaces and the dialogues they are designed to encourage while Muslim colleagues are explicitly excluded from them,” the pledge says.

The online pledge says it has more than 5,000 signatures.

More than 20,000 scientists and academics have also signed a letter denouncing the ban.
