Hundreds of mysterious stone structures discovered near ancient volcanoes in Saudi Arabia

Like all things, technology is a double-edged sword. Without it, however, Professor David Kennedy of the University of Oxford would never have discovered hundreds of mysterious structures located near ancient lava domes in Saudi Arabia. Using the resource Google Earth, Kennedy found there are approximately 400 stone walls on ancient lava domes that are believed to be more than 9,000 years old. Because the structures appear similar to others found in the Middle East, they have been dubbed “gates”

Newly-discovered hermit crab species uses living coral as shells

For the first time ever, a hermit crab has been documented to have found its “forever” home. Off the coast of Japan, a new species of the crab has partnered with a living coral. The coral grows as the crab ages, which means it has no need to continue searching for a bigger shell to live in. Unlike its counterparts, this new species has a perfectly symmetrical body to fit the coral that grows with it.

The discovery of the Diogenes heteropsammicola is described in the journal PLOS…

11-year old inventor becomes “America’s Top Young Scientist” for lead-detecting sensor

Gitanjali Rao, an 11-year old resident of Lone Tree, Colorado, earned the title of “America’s Top Young Scientist” when she won the this year’s Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge for her inspired invention of a sensor that can more efficiently detect lead in water than traditional methods. Rao was first inspired to create such a tool after learning about the Flint water crisis. “I feel every individual has the right to know if their drinking water is safe,” said Rao in her National…
