Comments Off on World’s Largest Concentrated Solar Power Plant Switches On in Abu Dhabi

The plant was designed and developed by Shams Power Company , and it cost $600 million and took three years to build. It’s owned by Masdar , Abengoa Solar and Total .

Scientists Bring Extinct Mouth-Brooding Frog Back to Life After 30 Years

Comments Off on Scientists Bring Extinct Mouth-Brooding Frog Back to Life After 30 Years

Most of us probably thought the first species that would be brought back from extinction would be large, scaly, and wreak havoc on a theme park. While not nearly as intimidating, scientists have revived one of the most interesting amphibians the world has ever seen. Using preserved DNA, researchers at the University of Newcastle in Australia have resurrected the gastric-brooding frog (Rheobatrachus silus). The frog was native to small portions of Queensland, and was pushed out of existence by habitat loss , parasites, fungus and invasive weeds back in the 1980′s. Using cloning methods, the animal, which can amazingly incubate eggs in its stomach and give birth through its mouth, may soon be hopping back into the world.
