Heard about this on the radio this morning. Wonder what other genes we scooped up. 
Tibetan altitude gene inherited 'from extinct species'

"A gene that allows present-day people to cope with life at high altitude was inherited from an extinct species of human, Nature journal has reported.

The variant of the EPAS-1 gene, which affects blood oxygen, is common in Tibetans - many of whom live at altitudes of 4,000m all year round."

Frozen Icelandic cave illuminated by Northern Lights

“This stunning image of the aurora borealis illuminating the weird underground world of a vast cave in Iceland is vying for an award.

Photographer Ingólfur Bjargmundsson lay in wait in the frozen 1360-metre-long lava cave to capture this image of the aurora borealis at its peak through one of the cave’s natural skylights.”

Along the Cygnus Wall

The prominent ridge of emission featured in this vivid skyscape is known as the Cygnus Wall. Part of a larger emission nebula with a distinctive shape popularly called The North America Nebula, the ridge spans about 10 light-years along an outline that suggests the western coast of Mexico. Constructed from narrowband image data, the cosmic close-up maps emission from sulfur, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms to red, green, and blue colors. The result highlights the bright ionization front with fine details of dark, dusty forms in silhouette. Sculpted by energetic radiation from the region's young, hot, massive stars, the dark shapes inhabiting the view are clouds of cool gas and dust with stars likely forming within. The North America Nebula itself, NGC 7000, is about 1,500 light-years away. To find it, look northeast of bright star Deneb in the high flying constellation Cygnus.

NASA has chosen a fitting name for the dramatic final phase of its Saturn-studying Cassini mission, with a little help from the public.

Starting in late 2016, Cassini will zip between Saturn and its innermost ring a total of 22 times in a mission phase now known as the "Cassini Grand Finale," which will end in September 2017 when the probe intentionally dives into the gas giant's atmosphere. Learn more here: http://buff.ly/1lxcgiG
