Scientists inspired by all-white beetle create blackest material ever seen

The material absorbs 99% of light, at all angles, making it 26% darker than carbon nanotubes, which are the darkest material before known. The researchers got the inspiration of the material from the all-white cyphochilus beetle because of its scales' ability to form a photonic crystal structure that makes it reflect light efficiently.

One had died shortly after birth, and the other, a late-term fetus, had apparently been stillborn. During the last ice age, the Laurentide Ice Sheet covered all of Canada and blocked the entrance to North America as recently as 20,000 years ago.

Thus, the tomb may have held a powerful warrior or king or even a trader or a raider - who died at about 30 to 35 years of age but who helped to lay the foundations of the Mycenaean culture that later flourished in the region.

The 50% of African Lions Will Be Gone in 20 Years

Bauer and his colleagues analysed existing data on populations in different parts of Africa, identifying declines across much of the continent and then modelling future trends.

The study found, for example, that in East and West Africa where lion populations have declined, herbivore populations have plummeted as well.

Persian Gulf Heat Index Forecast: 170 Degrees

Heat could be so intense that in many regional cities, the temperature "could exceed a tipping point for human survival, even in shaded and well-ventilated spaces", and even for healthy adults. "What we are talking about is significantly more severe than what people have experienced anywhere before", Elfatih Eltahir, a co-author on the study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told reporters when asked to compare it to recent waves like Chicago in 1995, Europe in 2003 and Russian ...
