Spinning around and around used to be the epitome of fun. Now ... blergh. Why does dizziness lose its appeal with age?

Sad stuff - and other rhino species are very close to this same fate. 
Only five northern white rhinoceroses are left on Earth. Can reproductive technology save a subspecies driven to near extinction?

Our brains are more like lawyers defending a case than impartial judges looking for truth. 
This month, a jury sentenced Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death for his role in the 2013 bombing of the Boston Marathon. The sentence raised an outcry from those who oppose the death penalty — particularly in Boston, where few support capital punishment — and a corresponding backlash from those who favor ...

Come for the frivolous question, stay for the physics
Science now has an answer to the famous question asked in the iconic Tootsie Roll Pop commercial, revealing how many licks it takes to get to the pop's gooey center. The research also unlocks the secrets of how objects dissolve in fluid flows.

Could a bum knee be the key to identifying Alexander the Great's dad? 
A skeleton with a tell-tale knee injury may belong to Alexander the Great's father, Philip II. But a decades-old debate about the identity of these bones won't go down without a fight.

Your article about the roman goddess found here:

http://www.livescience.com/54757-divers-discover-roman-era-shipwreck.html

She doesn't have a crescent crown, a crescent crown is a moon crown, she has a 'sun' crown on her head making the god she is holding, a moon god.

There you have it. 
If the northern giant mouse lemur were the size of a human, its testes would be as big as grapefruits. To capture these testes measurements, scientists had to be quick on their feet in the forests of Madagascar.

1,000 years of history in one cemetery!
Pristinely preserved bodies at the Badia Pozzeveri cemetery in Tuscany, Italy, could hold the DNA of the cholera bacteria that killed them during an 1850s epidemic. Understanding the disease's evolution could lead to a cure.

Shiny stuff, really old animals, chemistry.
Fool's gold helps preserve the bodies of some of the world's oldest animals. Sulfur-eating bacteria in the ocean helped the process of fossilization along.
