The origin of complex life (snowball earth) (repost) 

Life on Earth goes back at least two billion years, but it was only in the last half-billion that it would have been visible to the naked eye. One of the enduring questions among biologists is how life made the jump from microbes to the multicellular plants and animals who rule the planet today. Now, scientists have analyzed chemical traces of life in rocks that are up to a billion years old, and they discovered how a dramatic ice age may have led to the multicellular tipping point.
Measuring the spectrum of light

Measuring the spectrum of light

CERN researchers succeeded in their goal of measuring the spectrum of light emitted from hydrogen’s mirror particle, antihydrogen. Now the researchers have detailed evidence of the structure of antihydrogen using spectroscopy… Learn more at the link below: http://www.sciencealert.com/physicists-have-captured-the-first-spectral-fingerprints-of-antimatter

Shubhendu Sharma: How to grow a forest in your backyard | TED Talk

[embed]https://www.ted.com/talks/shubhendu_sharma_how_to_grow_a_forest_in_your_backyard#t-539876[/embed] Forests don’t have to be far-flung nature reserves, isolated from human life. Instead, we can grow them right where we are – even in cities. Eco-entrepreneur and TED Fellow Shubhendu Sharma grows ultra-dense, biodiverse mini-forests of native species in urban areas by engineering soil, microbes and biomass to kickstart natural growth processes. Follow along as he describes how to grow a 100-year-old forest in just 10 years, and learn how you can get in on this tiny jungle party.
