Comments Off on CU-Boulder Study Finds ‘Unprecedented’ Warming in Eastern Canadian Arctic

A new University of Colorado Boulder study reveals a level of warming in the Eastern Canadian Arctic that likely hasn’t been seen since the end of the last interglacial period 120,000 years ago. Radioactive carbon dates from 145 dead moss clumps emerging from four different receding Baffin Island ice caps show the mosses had not been exposed to the elements in at least 44,000 years.

Comments Off on Ancient Bees Were Wiped Out with the Dinosaurs

Researchers recently discovered that today’s bee populations are not the first to succumb to environmental changes. Their studies reveal that along with dinosaurs , a species of carpenter bees was completely wiped out 65 million years ago. By studying this historic extinction, the researchers hope to find meaningful ways to prevent the current decline that threatens several bee species throughout the globe.

First an 18 foot oarfish appeared off the coast of California , followed five days later by a second sea serpent , and now a super-rare “saber-toothed” whale has washed ashore on Venice Beach near Los Angeles. The 2,000 pound creature also known as a Stejneger’s beaked whale is extremely rare and usually only found in the deep waters of Alaska. Even though the animal was covered in shark bites, it was still alive when rescuers initially found it, and a brief examination showed no other signs of trauma or disease.

Photo via Shutterstock Using a new climate simulation tool, a team of US and Chinese climate scientists have predicted that the Arctic will ice-free by 2058. Their research, which was published in a  National Academy of Sciences paper called  Reducing spread in climate model projections of a September ice-free Arctic shows that, starting in 2058, the continent will no longer have ice in September – the period when the Arctic begins to freeze over.

Comments Off on The LEGObot is an Inexpensive Homemade 3D Printer

As the 3D printer revolution picks up speed, the price of the machines is beginning to drop—but shelling out several hundred bucks for a desktop printer is still out of the reach of many would-be enthusiasts . That did not stop one truly innovative and tech savvy individual from creating their own version of the device. Using what he had on hand, Matthew Kreuger constructed a printer with a set of LEGOs that uses hot glue as a feedstock. The prototype is a fully functional, NXT powered 3D printer roughly based on the Makerbot and cost its creator almost nothing to fabricate.
