Bronze Age iron weapons ‘came from outer space’, claims new study

A new study claims that most of the iron used in weaponry and Artefacts dating from the Bronze Age is, in fact, of extraterrestrial origin. It further explains how our ancient ancestors were able to use the metal without access to smelting, according to RT.

The new research, led by French scientist Albert Jambon used geochemical analyses to differentiate Earthly and extraterrestrial metals found in a range of Bronze Age artefacts from across the world.

How the brain keeps time: Scientists discover networks of neurons that stretch and compress to track tempo

Whether it's playing the piano or swinging a tennis racket, timing is critical for a number of activities.

Now, scientists believe they have discovered the key mechanism in the brain that controls this precise timing, according to Daily Mail.

Their findings suggest that timing is controlled by neurons that compress or stretch out the steps they take to generate a behaviour at a specific time. 

While previous studies have suggested that the control over timing is achieved through a centralised pacemaker, researchers suggest that this may not be the case.

Unexpected atmospheric vortex behavior on Saturn's moon Titan

A new study has shown that recently reported unexpected behaviour on Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, is due to its unique atmospheric chemistry.

Titan's polar atmosphere recently experiences and unexpected and significant cooling, contrary to all model predictions and differing from the behaviour of all other terrestrial planets in our solar systemic, according to Science Daily .

Titan is the largest moon of Saturn, is bigger than the planet Mercury, and is the only moon in our solar system to have a substantial atmosphere.

Usually, the high altitude polar atmosphere in a planet's winter hemisphere is warm because of sinking air being compressed and heated -- similar to what happens in a bicycle pump.

Puzzlingly, Titan's atmospheric polar vortex seems to be extremely cold instead.

The mystery of the solar minimum deepens as astronomers find it has remained 'surprisingly constant' for more than 60 years

As the sun moves through its 11-year cycle, it experiences active and quiet periods known as the solar maximum and solar minimum.

While solar maximum can present itself in a host of different ways, a new study has found that microwaves emitted during the solar minimum have largely remained the same for more than half a century, according to Daily Mail.

The discovery is surprising, the researchers say, and could help to provide a clearer understanding of the processes that give rise to sunspots and other solar activity.

Astronomers have been continuously monitoring solar microwaves across four-frequencies since 1957.

World's First Human Head Transplant ‘Imminent’ - Italian Surgeon

Controversial Italian doctor Sergio Canavero claims he’s carried out the world’s first successful human head transplant, albeit on a corpse. Canavero says a transplant on a live subject is now imminent.

Canavero made his extraordinary announcement Friday, at a press conference in the Austrian capital, Vienna. The Italian neurologist said he carried out the posthumous operation in China and that his newly developed techniques for re-connecting the spine, nerves and blood vessels, allowing the head and body to work in tandem, were a success.

“The first human transplant on human cadavers has been done,” he said. “A full head swap between brain dead organ donors is the next stage. And that is the final step for the formal head transplant for a medical condition which is imminent,” he added, according to RT.
