Science News Briefs from around the Planet

Hi, I’m Scientific American podcast editor Steve Mirsky. And here’s a short piece from the March 2020 difficulty of the magazine, in the segment referred to as Advances: Dispatches From The Frontiers Of Science, Technology And Medication.

The short article is titled Swift Hits, and it is a rundown of some non-coronavirus stories from all over the globe, compiled by assistant information editor Sarah Lewin Frasier.

From the Dominican Republic:

A sunken museum at La Caleta Underwater National Park will maintain in position a ship that sank in 1725, full with genuine (and reproduction) artifacts saved underwater for folks to investigate. Submerged artifacts typically degrade quicker when taken out from the sea.

From Greenland:

New simulations point out that a rocky valley detected less than the island’s ice sheet might comprise a one,600-kilometer-very long subterranean river, flowing from central Greenland to its northern coastline.

From Greece:

Archaeologists uncovered gold, jewels and beads in a large creating on the now uninhabited Minoan island of Chrysi, a locale that about 3,500 decades back was devoted to generating purple dye from sea snails referred to as Murex.

From England:

Researchers found one,seven-hundred-12 months-aged chicken eggs, alongside with other ancient objects, in a waterlogged pit in southeastern England. A handful of eggs broke throughout extraction, releasing a sulfurous smell—but one particular remained intact, generating it the only full egg found from Roman Britain.

From Australia:

To assist enhance Sydney Harbor’s endangered seahorse population, researchers bred newborn seahorses in an aquarium and crafted crab-trap-like undersea “hotels” to protect them as they adapt to the wild.

From Antarctica:

Researchers examination-drove a meter-very long, wheeled rover that streamed dwell sights of the depths as it rolled alongside the underside of Antarctic ice. The Buoyant Rover for Underneath-Ice Exploration (BRUIE) could sometime investigate frozen-in excess of seas on worlds these as Jupiter’s moon Europa.

That was Swift Hits, by Sarah Lewin Frasier.
