Greenland's ancient temperatures revealed
Researchers studying the last deglaciation, when Earth's ice sheets were beginning to melt, now know more about the temperature of Greenland at that time, thanks to a new report. For years, studies have suggested that Greenland started warming up later than the rest of the Northern Hemisphere -- about 14,700 years ago instead of about 19,000 years ago, when the deglaciation began.

Giant cosmic magnifying glass finds baby stars
Like Sherlock with his famous magnifying glass, astronomers use lenses to improve our view of the world -- they use telescopes. And very occasionally, they stumble across an amazing and rare cosmic phenomenon called 'gravitational lensing.' When this happens, a natural cosmic magnifying glass is created, boosting our vision of the universe allowing us to look at distant objects that wouldn't be visible otherwise!
