Happy birthday, caesium clock. Now move over. As the atomic clock used to define time itself turns 60, tests are set to begin on a new generation of clocks that are designed to give the caesium version a run for its money.
Next-generation timekeepers can only be tested against each other.

National pledges ahead of the UN climate summit in Paris put the world on course for 3 °C rise by 2100. Compromises are needed. But who should do more? http://ow.ly/Nuizy
Independent assessments of national climate plans find little common ground between wealthy and developing countries.

The hunt for the fountain of youth is back to square one — at least for those seeking it in blood. 
A protein in the blood of young mice that seemed to rejuvenate older animals may do the opposite.

Dinosaurs once dominated the world — but they spent their first 30 million years stranded on its geographic fringes thanks to unstable climates at lower latitudes.
Swings between wet and dry conditions confined large dinosaurs to the poles for millions of years.

This work by the South African Scientists is really great. It takes a lot of the information that is well known and distills it into a report that cannot be used by evil minded politicians and theists. That said, I am sure they will find some way to do it.

Police investigate researchers' role in devastating bacterial epidemic.

Laser weapons are a staple of modern video games -- but they are not a fantasy anymore. Several real-life laser weapons are on the brink of deployment thanks to the advent of relatively cheap, portable and robust lasers that generate their beams using optical fibres. http://ow.ly/NujEQ
Long a staple of science fiction, laser weapons are edging closer to the battlefield — thanks to optical fibres.

+Iamanatheist Andthisiswhy​ true dat. also, human intervention has not only a positive effect, but a negative effect on not only pandas but our world and i think that pandas and many other animals/environments are just a reminder of not only what we can do to help, but what we are doing that makes it worse.

When Joseph Dwyer’s aeroplane took a wrong turn into a thundercloud, the mistake paid off: the atmospheric physicist flew not only through a frightening storm but also into an unexpected — and mysterious — haze of antimatter.
Aeroplane detects signature spike in photons that does not fit any known source of antiparticles.
