The Most Amazing Science Discoveries You May Have Missed

The Koyal Group Info Mag Articles - While these stories may have not made Science's 'Top 10 science stories of the year' list touting the biggest discoveries of the year, many interesting findings made headline in 2013. Last year held plenty of off-beat and off-the-beaten-tra ck findings and news: Humans ate the first test-tube hamburger, a plan to capture an asteroid was launched, and a mind-controlled prosthetic leg was made. These are the kinds of findings that make science fun, so we decided to ditch the over-hyped stories and make a list of the most remarkable things you might have missed last year. Here are the incredible stories. A hydrogen bond was photographed for the first time. In September, scientists captured the first images of one of the most important physical interactions in the world — the hydrogen bond — which holds DNA together and gives water its unique properties. These never-before-seen photos are an encouraging advancement in atomic force microscopy, a method of scanning that can see details at the fraction of a nanometer level. A skull from Georgia suggests that all early humans were a single species. The analysis of a 1.8-million-year-o ld skull found in a region of Georgia suggests that the earliest members of the Homo genus actually belonged to the same species. The skull was discovered alongside the remains of four other early human ancestors, but had different physical features despite being from the same time period and location. Researchers have traditionally used variation among Homo fossils to define separate species, but now think that early, diverse Homo fossils from Africa actually represent members of a single, evolving lineage — they just looked different from one another. For the first time in 35 years, a new carnivorous mammal was discovered in the Americas. A relative of the raccoon, the olinguito, has been described as looking like a "cross between a house cat and a teddy bear." The animal's discovery in the forests of Ecuador, confirmed in August, shows that the world is not yet completely explored. It's the first new species of mammal discovered in 35 years.  (Feb 24, 2014 | post #1)

Koyal Info Group Mag: Researchers Urge to Fight Anti-Science

Honoured researchers urge colleagues to fight anti-science Scientists need to fight against a growing anti-science sentiment worldwide by joining the debate, say two researchers acknowledged in today's Australia Day Honours. Professors Bruce McKellar and Sam Berkovic, both associated with the University of Melbourne, received the nation's highest honour when they were appointed Companions in the General Division of the Order of Australia. McKellar, a theoretical physicist, says the honour for his "eminent service to science, particularly the study of theoretical physics" came as a "surprise ". However it highlights a remarkable journey from a NSW bush school playground to the hallways of Switzerland's Large Hadron Collider. "One of the things that is very nice about me getting this award is the fact I went to a bush school with 50 students and one teacher," he says. That one teacher at Budgeregong Public School near Forbes in NSW also happened to be his father. "In part it is to he that I owe my appreciation of mathematics and various forms of science," he says. Although officially retired, the 72-year-old will later this year become the first Australian and first southern hemisphere president of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics. The prestigious position comes at a time when science - most notably climate and immunisation science - is under attack in western societies. "The basic denial is the denial that science has done anything for us," says McKellar. "I think part of the problem is not that we are denying science but that we've become so used to it and the idea that it really is the basis of all our lifestyle." He cites the example of basic radio astronomy research to analyses radio signals from the universe that led to the development of mobile phones. "We do need to talk more about [the benefits]. Unfortunately we have to convince people about the need for patience … and I think some of us [scientists] don't help with that by continually claiming to have made a breakthrough.
