Astronauts have distinct brain changes even months after returning to Earth

Plunged into freefall for months, our bodies adapt in ways that create a long list of health problems for space travelers. The latest assessment of the warping effect of microgravity on our biology focuses on the spaces surrounding the blood vessels that run through our brains, revealing concerning changes that linger in astronauts between missions. …

Before There Were Birds or Bees, Here’s How Trilobites Made Babies

The robust, calcite-infused exoskeletons of trilobites and their segmented shells are nearly ubiquitous in fossil deposits from the Cambrian to Permian period. But this treasure trove of trilobite fossils has revealed frustratingly little about how Paleozoic animals reproduced over 250 million years of life on ancient Earth. A recently re-examined fossil from the Burgess Shale …
