Historic SpaceX launch to be covered in-depth by Discovery and Science Channels

The Discovery Channel and Science Channel are teaming up to give viewers “unprecedented access” into this weekend’s historic SpaceX launch.

Both networks will go live on Saturday to capture the first commercial fully-crewed spaceflight to the International Space Station (ISS). Four astronauts are set to ride into orbit aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule this weekend, kicking off what NASA hopes will be years of Elon Musk’s SpaceX company conducting routine trips to keep the International Space Station fully staffed.

The simulcast is set for 3 p.m. PT and 6 p.m. ET.

“We are thrilled to once again have such incredible access that can only be found on Discovery and Science Channel,” said Scott Lewers, Executive Vice President of Multiplatform Programming, Factual & Head of Content, Science. “For this moment of international unity and hope, we will bring our viewers together to witness a spectacular celebration of space exploration”

Harrington Discovery Institute At University Hospitals And Case Western Reserve School Of Medicine Open Call For 2021 Harrington-MSTP Scholar Award

CLEVELAND, Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Harrington Discovery Institute at University Hospitals and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have issued a call for proposals for the 2021 Harrington-MSTP (Medical Scientist Training Program) Scholar Award to help the next generation of physician-scientists advance their discoveries into breakthrough medicines. This program is a two-year scholarship for MSTP students at the School of Medicine whose work has been identified as innovative, creative and having potential to progress towards clinical application.

Since its founding in 2012, Harrington Discovery Institute–part of The Harrington Project for Discovery & Development–has supported 137 drugs-in-the-making in the US, Canada and the United Kingdom. Core to its mission, Harrington Discovery Institute recognizes and supports inventive physician-scientists through dedicated programs, including the global Harrington Prize (partnered with The American Society for Clinical Investigation), North American Scholar-Innovator Award, and the Cleveland, Ohio-based Harrington Investigator programs.

Discovery triples greater glider species in Australia

A team of researchers from James Cook University (JCU), The Australian National University (ANU), the University of Canberra and Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, analyzed the genetic make-up of the greater glider—a possum-sized marsupial that can glide up to 100 meters.


JCU’s Ph.D. student Denise McGregor and Professor Andrew Krockenberger were part of a team that confirmed a long-held theory that the greater glider is actually multiple species.

As a part of her Ph.D. project to understand why greater gliders varied so much across their range, Ms McGregor discovered that the genetic differences between the populations she was looking at were profound.

“There has been speculation for a while that there was more than one species of greater glider, but now we have proof from the DNA. It changes the whole way we think about them,” she said.

“Australia’s biodiversity just got a lot richer. It’s

Highlights

  • Two occurrences of visible gold found in quartz vein separated by 15 metres

  • The northeast trending quartz veining has been traced over 550m

  • Textures of quartz veining are typical of epizonal style gold deposits

TORONTO, Nov. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the discovery of visible gold in quartz vein at its Kingsway Project near Gander Newfoundland. The Kingsway project is located within the highly prospective Gander Gold District to the northeast of New Found Gold Corp’s gold discovery announced earlier this year.

Two occurrences of visible gold in quartz vein were found, the first in outcrop and the second in subcrop, separated by approximately 15 metres.

Prehistoric female hunter discovery upends gender role assumptions

Randall Haas, an archaeologist at University of California, Davis, recalls the moment in 2018 when his team of researchers gathered around the excavated burial of an individual lain to rest in the Andes Mountains of Peru some 9,000 years ago. Along with the bones of what appeared to be a human adult was an impressive—and extensive—kit of stone tools an ancient hunter would need to take down big game, from engaging the hunt to preparing the hide.

“He must have been a really great hunter, a really important person in society”—Haas says that’s what he and his team were thinking at the time.

But further analysis revealed a surprise: the remains found alongside the toolkit were from a biological female. What’s more, this ancient female hunter was likely not an anomaly, according to a study published today in Science Advances. The Haas team’s find was followed by a review of

Prehistoric hunters weren’t all male. Women killed big game, new discovery suggests

But the discovery of a woman buried 9,000 years ago in the Andes Mountains with weapons and hunting tools, and an analysis of other burial sites in the Americas challenges this widely accepted division of labor in hunter-gatherer society.

The woman, thought to be between 17 and 19 years old when she died, was buried with items that suggested she hunted big-game animals by spear throwing — stone projectile points for felling large animals, a knife and flakes of rock for removing internal organs, and tools for scraping and tanning hides.

“Labor practices among recent hunter-gatherer societies are highly gendered, which might lead some to believe that sexist inequalities in things like pay or rank are somehow ‘natural,'” said lead study author Randy Haas, an assistant professor of anthropology at University of California, Davis, in a news release.

“But it’s now clear that sexual division of labor was fundamentally different … Read More

Five million years ago, dangerous carnivores—such as giant wolverines and otters, bears, sabertooth cats, and large hyaenids—prowled the West Coast of South Africa. Today we can confirm that, among them, fearlessly roamed a smaller relative of the living honey badger.
