For The First Time, a Rare Type of Space Dust Has Been Found in Antarctic Snow

For The First Time, a Rare Type of Space Dust Has Been Found in Antarctic Snow Scientists studying freshly fallen snow in Antarctica have uncovered a rare isotope of iron in the interstellar dust hidden inside it, suggesting the dust showed up recently. This discovery could give us crucial information about the history of stellar explosions in our galactic neighbourhood. We know that cosmic dust is drifting down to Earth all the time, tiny bits of debris from the rough and tumble of star and planet formation, sometimes billions of years old.

Killed by plastic: Thailand's beloved dugong is found dead A dugong which captured the hearts of Thailand has been found dead with pieces of plastic in its digestive system. The animal - a type of mammal that is sometimes thought to be the source of the mermaid myth - had become nationally famous after it was "adopted" by the public when it was discovered alone, without its parents. Last week, the mammal, which has been named Mariam, was found ill and was refusing to eat, losing a lot of weight. On Saturday, it died and an autopsy involving 10 vets determined it was killed by plastic it had eaten.

"It talks about the importance of water in times of crisis and the reflections that we can create from them," she added.

Excavators have been working at Vichama since 2007, revealing new ideas about the ancient Caral civilisation such as an advanced city plan and architecture.

The Caral, believed to be the oldest civilisation in the Americas, dates back to 3,000 BCE.

Not much is known of the ancient city currently being investigated, but some believe climate change may have contributed to its demise as it is located in an arid region of Peru.

One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has travelled to Uluru after controversially calling for indigenous leaders to overturn their pending ban on climbing the rock. Senator Hanson says she will also attempt the climb on Wednesday, weather permitting, with strong winds in the area an issue.

Last week, a wall relief dating from the same period showing snakes and human heads was uncovered at the same site.

It shows four human heads with their eyes closed. Two snakes pass between them, pointing their heads toward what appears to be an anthropomorphised seed.

The serpents represent a water deity, which irrigates the earth to make seeds grow, Ms Abad said.
