Ornithopod Dinosaur Discovered in China

A new genus and species of ornithopod dinosaur has been discovered in China, from two immaculately preserved, almost complete skeletons. Dubbed “Changmiania liaomingensis“, this dinosaur pushes back the known range of ornithopods to about 123 million years ago, in the Early Cretaceous. The rarity of such amazingly preserved dinosaurs can not be overstated. Thanks to the spectacular preservation and intactness of these skeletons, we are able to make lots of very educated assumptions about this...

New Triassic Mass Extinction Event Discovered

Around 230 million years ago in the Late Triassic, a brutal mass extinction event occurred, and it remained undetected until now. The event, dubbed “The Carnian Pluvial Event”, happened during a time when our Earth was dominated by volcanic activity. This specific spike in loss of life is attributed to a massive volcanic event which formed what we know today as the Wrangellia Oceanic Plateau, which makes up the rugged coast of Western Canada. This...

Signs of Life Detected on Venus.

Using the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope, astronomers have made an incredibly exciting discovery. This could easily be the biggest scientific news of 2020! The biomolecule phosphine (PH3) has been detected in the atmosphere of Venus. Though biochemicals have technically been found on the planet before, this find is special since this chemical is, on rocky planets, created either naturally by microorganisms, or artificially within labs. The presence of phosphine in the atmosphere of the hot...

Prehistoric Gibbon Ancestor Discovered in Pakistan

A new genus and species of primate has been unearthed in Pakistan! The animal, named Kapi ramnagarensis, was found in Ramnagar, a mountainous region within the province of Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan. This particular specimen has been identified from a single molar. Scientists were able to place it within the Miocene period, a time in which gibbons are theorized to have been migrating from the jungles of prehistoric Pakistan to what is now Southeast Asia....
