NASA will pay people $19,000 to stay in bed for 60 days

NASA will pay people $19,000 to stay in bed for 60 days Now astronauts on the International Space Station do several hours of exercises a day to fight off the negative results of living in almost weightless conditions, which tend to breakdown muscles and bones. A full 60 of those days will be on bedrest. If the centrifuge shows benefits, it could be used on extended space travel in the future. NASA researchers are making that offer. Continua a leggere...

World’s largest Tyrannosaurus found in Canada

World’s largest Tyrannosaurus found in Canada Its age is likely what allowed it to grow so big, the researchers say. That sounds pretty young to us, but in T. rex terms that's a long, long life. Moreover, while Scotty is the heaviest T. rex on record, it's not the longest. When the team analyzed the bones' growth pattern, which record yearly growth much like the annual growth rings of a tree trunk, they found Scotty was about 30 years old... Continua a leggere...
