Compared with apes, people's gut bacteria lack diversity, study finds

Posted: 03 Nov 2014 04:21 PM PST

The microbes living in people's guts are much less diverse than those in humans' closest relatives, the African apes, an apparently long evolutionary trend that appears to be speeding up in more modern societies, with possible implications for human health, according to a new study.

Astronomers solve puzzle about bizarre object at center of our galaxy: Enormous black hole drove two binary stars to merge

The mystery about a thin, bizarre object in the center of the Milky Way that some astronomers believe to be a hydrogen gas cloud headed toward our galaxy's enormous black hole has been solved by astronomers.

How a giant impact formed asteroid Vesta's 'belt'

Posted: 03 Nov 2014 01:19 PM PST

Collisions of heavenly bodies generate almost unimaginable levels of energy. Researchers used NASA's ultra-high-speed cannon and computer models to simulate such a collision on Vesta, the second-largest object in the asteroid belt. Their analysis of the images -- taken at a million frames per second -- shows how Vesta may have gotten the deep grooves that encircle its midsection.

String field theory could be the foundation of quantum mechanics: Connection could be huge boost to string theory
