Blue Eyes Originated 10,000 Years Ago in the Black Sea Region

A team of researchers from Copenhagen University have located a single mutation that causes the mysterious phenomenon of blue eyes. And all blue eyed people are genetically related to a person who lived in the Black Sea region sometime between 6 – 10,000 years ago. The research was published in the Journal of Human Genetics. A mutation in a gene called OCA2 came into being nearly 8,000 year

The two have been inseparable over the past five years at G.W Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Oklah

‘Indisputable’ Proof Of A New Four-Quark Particle

Using the most powerful particle collider in the world, a research group at CERN has forged a particle made of four quarks, the European organization announced yesterday. Most particles of matter in the universe today consist of two or three quarks. Over the past decade, however, particle-accelerator projects all over the world have gathered some evidence that a few different kinds of

A cosmic diamond ring sparkles 2,500 light-years from Earth.

This “celestial diamond ring” is really the planetary nebula Abell 33. A cosmic diamond ring sparkles 2,500 light-years from Earth. A powerful telescope in Chile has captured an image of a planetary nebula and a bright star that together look eerily similar to a diamond ring in deep space. The European Southern Observatory released the photo of the planetary nebula Abell 33 and t

8 Million Flower Petals Rain Down On A Village In Costa Rica

However, most associations of eruptions have to do with the volcanic kind, hot, fiery magma oozing down the sides of charcoal-colored volcanic rock – I’m sure you’re somewhat familiar with the phenomenon. But what about an eruption of flowers? Yes, flowers, as in vibrant and colorful petals raining down upon the earth. It sounds absurd, impossible even, but the inhabitants
