A Startup Mentality Gives Public Research a Lift

Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Defense became the latest agency to adopt a burgeoning start-up boot camp pioneered by the National Science Foundation’s Errol Arkilic.

TRAPPIST-1 Exoplanets Might All Be Water Worlds

Cheetahs Are Fast; Their Inner Ear Makes Them Deadly

Cheetahs evolved to become the fastest animals on land. Now scientists find that not only do swift limbs help cheetahs hunt down prey, but so too do tiny bony tubes within their skulls that help the cats keep their gazes locked on their targets.

Rats, Like (Some) People, Obey the Law of Quid Pro Quo

Like most animals that thrive in cities, rats get a bad rap. We even use the word “rat” for nasty people, particularly those that go behind your back. But this study suggests that rat society may not be so bad after all. By placing rats in special cages that allow them to give food only […]

Russians Claim ‘Indisputable Proof’ of Yeti

Russian researchers looking for the yeti — the Asian version of the North American Bigfoot — claim to have found “indisputable proof” of the long-sought mystery beast in Siberia.
