Mouse Songs Mouse Songs - Mouse Songs

Mouse Songs

For some people, the sight of a mouse can be reason to scream. For other mice, the same sight can be reason to sing. Rodents will probably never sing their way to Broadway, but researchers from Washington University in St. Louis have found evidence that Read More



Burst Busters

Explosions on Earth are a pretty big deal. In outer space, though, things are blowing up all the time. Two new studies show that a particularly powerful type of explosion is 10 times as common, but not always as powerful, as astronomers had thought. Read More

A Light Delay

Scientists from Harvard University recently demonstrated a way to catch and release light—but it’s not easy. In other words, no one will be using the new method to play a game of catch with flashlight beams anytime soon. The researchers were able to build Read More

To Catch a Dragonfly

Dragonflies date back at least 250 million years, says Daniel Soluk, an ecologist at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion. Alongside dinosaurs, they flitted across the prehistoric landscape on 2-foot-wide wingspans. Read More

Firefly Delight

Summer is a magical time. I love the vivid flowers, the brilliant sunsets, and, perhaps most amazing of all, the bright flashes of fireflies dancing in the night. In my fascination with fireflies, I'm not alone. Read More

Ancient Cave Behavior

People have been acting like people—in other words, they've been making tools, creating rituals, and sharing food—for a long time. That's the conclusion of a recent study from South Africa's southern coast. Read More

Armadillo

Armadillos are small placental mammals of the family Dasypodidae, mostly known for having a bony armor shell. All species are native to the Americas, where they inhabit a variety of environments. Read More

Snow Traps

Erica David was 11 years old when she discovered the scientific wonders of snow. Now, when even the biggest blizzards strike her area, she'd rather be out measuring wind gusts than sipping cocoa by a fire. Read More

A Puffy Planetary Puzzle

Astronomers recently made a fuss about Pluto, saying that it's not really big enough to be called a planet. Now, they're making a fuss about a planet that might be the largest one yet discovered. Read More

Pugs

A Pug is a toy dog breed of dog with a wrinkly face, medium-small body. The word "Pug" may have derived from the Latin pugnus (fist). Or, in nod to the breeds sometimes mischievous nature, from the character "Puck" of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Read More

How to Fly Like a Bat

It takes weeks, treats, and a lot of patience to train a bat to fly inside a wind tunnel. Bats already know how to fly, of course. The problem is to get them to do it inside a small tunnel with the wind rushing at them. So scientists at Brown University Read More

Feathered Fossils

As dinosaurs go, Velociraptor mongoliensis is fairly famous. Three starred in the 1993 film Jurassic Park. Despite the creature's fame, scientists have found remains from only about 20 velociraptors. Most of those discoveries turned up in the last 15 yea Read More

Chew for Health

Most schools ban chewing gum, but in a few years they might consider changing that rule. Why? Scientists are finding evidence that gum chewing may be good for your health. It may even help boost your test scores. Read More

Flying the Hyper Skies

A little airplane has given new meaning to the term "going hyper." The Hyper-X recently broke the record for air-breathing jet planes when it traveled at a hypersonic speed of seven times the speed of sound. That's about 5,000 miles per hour. Read More

Trout

Trout is the common name given to a number of species of freshwater fish belonging to the salmon family, Salmonidae. Trout are usually found in cool, clear streams and lakes, and are distributed naturally throughout the world. Read More

Hagfish

A hagfish is a marine chordate of the class Myxini, also known as Hyperotreti. Despite their name, there is some debate about whether they are strictly fish, since they belong to a much more primitive lineage than any other fish group. Read More

Swans

Swans are large water birds of the family Anatidae, which also includes geese and ducks. Swans are grouped with the closely related geese in the subfamily Anserinae. Adult swan diets are almost entirely vegetarian. Read More

The Snappy Lingo of Instant Messages

It would sound silly to say these words out loud, and you wouldn't write like this in a school report. Still, the conversation made perfect sense when Gale and Sally fired it off to each other on their computers. Read More

Sheep

The domestic sheep (Ovis aries), the most common species of the sheep genus (Ovis), is a woolly ruminant quadruped which probably descends from the wild mouflon of south-central and south-west Asia. In sheep husbandry, a group is called a flob. Read More

A Great Ball of Fire

It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's the hugest, most spectacular star explosion ever recorded, and astronomers are marveling at what they've just seen. Read More

Untangling Human Origins

According to the scientific theory of evolution, apes and people have a common ancestor—one ancient animal from which both species evolved. Read More

Giant Squid

Giant squid, once believed to be mythical creatures, are squid of the Architeuthidae family, represented by as many as eight species of the genus Architeuthis. They are deep-ocean dwelling squid that can grow to a tremendous size. Read More

Charged cars that would charge

In the middle of February, Tom Gage drove his car right into a building in downtown San Diego. Gage didn’t crash his car; he was showing it off — to a crowd gathered at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Read More

Numbats

The numbat (Myrmecobius fasciatus) is a small marsupial native to western and southern Australia with a number of unique features. The ecologically vulnerable numbat is the sole member of the genus Myrmecobius and the family Myrmecobiidae. Read More
