Scientists Find Record 2.7-Million-Year-Old Ice Core in Antarctica

blue ice in antarcticaBack in 2010, a group of scientists drilling in Antarctica pulled up a one-million-year-old chunk of ice. At the time, it was the oldest ice core ever discovered. But as Paul Voosen reports for Science, the team recently dug even deeper into Earth’s glacial history, unearthing an ice core that dates back 2.7 million years. [more]

Stem cell technique could reverse a major type of infertility

Stem cell techniqueTurning skin cells into sperm may one day help some infertile men have babies. Research in mice has found a way to make fertile sperm from animals born with too many sex chromosomes.Most men have two sex chromosomes – one X and one Y – but some have three, which makes it difficult to produce fertile sperm. Around 1 in 500 men are born with Klinefelter syndrome, caused by having an extra X chromosome, while roughly 1 in 1000 have Double Y syndrome.[More]
