Picture of a skull of smallest-known 'bird dinosaur' found in 99mn-yr-old amber

The world’s smallest-known dinosaur has been discovered encased in 99-million-year-old amber. As per the media reports the skull, measuring about half an inch belongs to a bird called Oculudentavis khaungraae that lived during the Cretaceous Period in Myanmar. Researchers used the specimen to create a computer-generated image of the dinosaur that measured around 2 inches long. Src: https://bit.ly/2UdLKpJ

NASA posts picture of hole on Mars, says it could hold possibility of life on the planet

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has recently posted a photo of an unusual hole on the Mars planet, which was discovered in 2011. The image depicts the dusty slopes of Mars’ Pavonis Mons volcano. The image was taken by the HiRISE instrument aboard the robotic Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter which currently circles the planet. NASA said that such Martian pits appear to be “relatively good candidates” to contain life as they have interior caves that remain “relatively protected” from the planet’s harsh surface.

Hawaiian telescope captures most detailed pictures of the sun yet

Hawaii's Inouye Solar Telescope has accomplished an incredible achievement and captured the highest-ever resolution images of the solar surface. The striking images had revealed a surprising level of structure hidden within the churning plasma exterior, bringing a previously hazy impression of the sun’s patchwork surface sharply into focus for the first time.

Researchers have created an 18-carat gold nugget using plastic

Leonie van 't Hag, a postdoc in the ETH lab headed by Raffaele Mezzenga, Professor of Food and Soft Materials has created a new form of gold that weighs about five to ten times less than traditional 18-carat gold. The conventional mixture is usually three-quarters gold and one-quarter copper, with a density of about 15 g/cm3. Miraculous lightness of the metal was achieved by using protein fibres instead of using metal alloys. The researchers can even adjust the hardness of the material by changing the composition of the gold. They can also replace the latex in the matrix with other plastics, such as polypropylene.
