For the first time, organic molecules could be detected in such old liquids as possible nutrients for primordial microbes.
Radiocarbon measurements on kauri trees also provide the basis for better calibration of geological archives of this period.
New study found that electrons can reach ultra-relativistic energies for very special conditions in the magnetosphere when space is devoid of plasma.
The analysis of sediment cores from the Mediterranean Sea tells the story of major environmental changes in North Africa over the last 160,000 years.
