Low-cost, high-throughput DNA sequencing—a technique in which millions of DNA base-pairs are automatically read in parallel—appeared on the scene less than a decade ago. It has already transformed our ability to see just how the genes of human beings, their domestic animals and their diseases have changed over thousands or tens of thousands of years.

The result is a crop of new insights into precisely what happened to our ancestors: when and where they migrated, how much they intermarried with those they met along the way and how their natures changed as a result of evolutionary pressures. DNA from living people has already shed some light on these questions. Ancient DNA has now dramatically deepened—and sometimes contradicted—those answers, providing a much more dynamic view of the past.
Armed with old bones and new DNA sequencing technology, scientists are getting a much better understanding of the prehistory of the human species, writes Matt Ridley

The world's brightest scientific minds posed for this 1927 photo after historic debates between Professor Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr about the nature and the weird aspects of quantum mechanics.
29 scientists more than half of whom were or would later become Nobel Prize recipients.

Underneath the bubbling geysers and hot springs of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming sits a volcanic hot spot that has driven some of the largest eruptions on Earth. Geoscientists have now completely imaged the subterranean plumbing system and have found not just one, but two magma chambers underneath the giant volcano.

Scientists still haven't been able to confirm alien life. But new research suggests ‎complex organic molecules -- the type of volatiles that make life possible -- aren't unique to our solar system.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Oh wait, you're serious?!?

"Encryption isn’t just a technical feature; it’s a marketing pitch. But it will have very serious consequences for law enforcement and national security agencies at all levels. Sophisticated criminals will come to count on these means of evading detection. It’s the equivalent of a closet that can’t be opened. A safe that can’t be cracked. And my question is, at what cost?"

This enormous, cathedral-like building is the main water tank of theMetropolitan Area Outer Underground Discharge Channel facility in Tokyo, Japan, which is one of the most famous water infrastructure complex in the world, and also the world’s largest underground flood diversion facility.

The incredibly huge pressure-adjusting water tank, you can see in the following photos is the main attraction of the facility. It was built 22 meters below ground level between 1993 and 2009, and it is really gigantic: 177 meters long, 78 meters wide, 25 meters high with a forest of 59 reinforced concrete pillars each weighing 500 ton supporting the ceiling.

MIT and University of Belgrade scientists report in Nature that they managed to entangle 3,000 particles trapped in a supercooled cloud. The key was using very weak light, as weak as a single photon of light, which is less likely to disturb the cloud than a strong beam. The photon bounced thousands of times between two mirrors, passing back and forth through the cloud of atoms. This was enough to entangle the atoms. 
Quantum entanglement is an odd phenomenon that can connect two or more particles over even vast distances. Scientists have now managed to entangle not two, not 100 (the previous record), but 3,000 atoms with a single photon, opening the door to atomic clocks more accurate than ever.

Among more than 350 amendments to the House budget bill, HB 1, that were pre-filed over the weekend are some that would substantially improve the bill. Two by Rep. Abel Herrero (D-Corpus Christi), would ban any state spending to implement private-school vouchers, either directly or indirectly...
