What do the remains found in the Chilean desert reveal? | Digital Trends Spanish

Located in the north of Chile, the Atacama Desert constitutes a good setting for the study of the fossil remains of the ancient inhabitants, this due to the lack of humidity in the area since it is the driest desert in the world. A new study of human remains from tombs between 3,000 and 1,400 years old reveals the violent struggle that could have occurred between the inhabitants of the area when agriculture began. According to research to be published in the Journal of Anthropological Archeology, the inhabitants of the desert attacked each other with maces, knives and hunting weapons, probably fighting for the scarcity of water and the availability of fertile land. The study found dozens of individuals with hair, meat and organs still intact, due to the aridity of the desert. Vivien Sta...

Two new species of dinosaurs discovered in China | Digital Trends Spanish

According to a study published in Nature Scientific Reports, a group of scientists discovered the fossils of three dinosaurs dating from the Early Cretaceous, between 130 and 120 million years ago. The fossils were found in the Turpan-Hami basin in northwestern China. The remains are believed to belong to two new species in a region where dinosaur fossils have never been unearthed before. The first specimen corresponds to a Silutitan sinensis, a new species of sauropod, a herbivore characterized by having a very extensive neck, a long tail, a large body and a small head, according to the study. Meanwhile, the second specimen, Hamititan xinjiangensis, is estimated to be more than 1.5 meters long and possessed characteristics similar to those of South American sauropods. Recreation. Chua...

Mexico: archaeological find will be buried | Digital Trends Spanish

A team of archaeologists from the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico (INAH) discovered in 2019 the entrance to a tunnel on the outskirts of Mexico City. The problem is that, due to lack of money, this portal decorated with pre-Hispanic glyphs will have to be buried again for an indefinite period. As there are no resources to continue the investigation, INAH officials believe that the place may be the victim of acts of vandalism or pollution associated with vehicular traffic. Before being sealed, the structure was protected with a masonry formwork to avoid possible collapse. INAH“At the time, the idea of ​​creating a corridor and an archaeological window was raised that would allow the general public to admire these remains as they pass through the place; however, ...

This bat wears a mask for a particular reason | Digital Trends Spanish

This 2020, bats have become more popular and it is not only because of the next premiere of The batman (definitively postponed to 2022). This enigmatic animal has been associated with the genesis of the coronavirus, a pandemic that has the entire planet in check. We are constantly learning more about this creature that amazes us, and recently we have learned of a new species that can use a very appropriate "accessory" for these times. It's about the species Centurio senex, who uses a kind of mask on his face and whose main characteristics and behavior have been detailed in an observational study published in PLOS One. Preliminarily, the mask is thought to be part of a courtship ritual for males. This "accessory" would be incorporated into your face and would be made with excess sk...

They discover a new species of primate that is already under threat | Digital Trends Spanish

Scientists have identified a new species of primate that lives in the forests of central Burma. It has been called stern iangur and has existed for at least a million years, according to data from the study published in Zoological research. Experts from the German Primate Center and the NGO Fauna and Flora International (FFI) carried out a long investigation to find this small primate, which measures between 50 and 60 centimeters and has a face marked by a tuft of gray hair. The primate discovered belongs to the iangur species (Trachypithecus, according to its scientific name), which is an endemic monkey of the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. It is named after Mount Popa, which is a sacred site built on an ancient volcano in central Burma. In that place, the researchers di...

First superplanet detected with a radio telescope | Digital Trends Spanish

An international team of astronomers has detected for the first time a cold brown dwarf, also known as a superplanet or failed star, using a radio telescope. The discovery, which was designated BDR J1750 + 3809, is the first substellar object to be detected through radio observations. Until now, brown dwarfs have largely been found from studying the infrared sky. The superplanet, also called Elegast, was first identified using data from the Low Frequency Array Telescope (LOFAR) in the Netherlands, and was later detected by a pair of observatories on Mauna Kea on the island of Hawaii. ASTRON / DANIELLE FUTSELAAR Finding such bodies with radio telescopes is a breakthrough, because it shows that astronomers can detect objects that are too cold and faint to be discovered in infrared st...

Surprising find about Europa, Jupiter’s moon | Digital Trends Spanish

A study carried out by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory claims that Jupiter's moon Europa can glow in the dark. The experiments were able to show that the type of ice that covers the moon's surface glows under radiation, which could help determine the composition of its frozen plains and underground oceans. The scientists warned that as Europa orbits Jupiter, it receives a continuous charge of electrons and other particles from the planet, which is "bathed" in high-energy radiation. These particles hitting its surface would also allow the moon to glow in the dark. “If you imagine that you are standing in Europe and you look at the glow under your feet, the glow would be similar to if you were standing outside in the light of a full moon and then looking at the ground,” explains Mur...

Tumba reveals that women were also great hunters | Digital Trends Spanish

The discovery of a 9,000-year-old tomb in the Andes, made in 2018, now provides important information about the role that women played in hunting large animals. In the discovery made at the Wilamaya Patjxa archaeological site, in Peru, a grave was found with the remains of a young woman between 17 and 19 years old, according to a release issued by the University of California at Davis. Along with it, the researchers found hunting tools, stone tips to knock down large animals, and butchery tools, such as a knife and rock scales. If it is considered that the objects that accompany the deceased are those that that person habitually used during his life, this discovery would overturn the traditional hunter man hypothesis. In this new and revealing vision, women would also have been imp...

This curious clip-shaped creature lived up to 200 years | Digital Trends Spanish

A group of researchers has just presented to the Geological Society of the United States a strange creature that stands out for its shape and for the long period it would have lived. It is an ancient squid-like animal, which had a shell that looked like a 1.5-meter long paperclip and had the capacity to live for approximately 200 years. The diplomoceras maximum is the name of this species, which lived 68 million years ago, that is, it was contemporary with the tyrannosaurus rex. It was an ammonite, a now-extinct group of tentacled cephalopods, and its most striking feature was its distinctive clip-shaped shell. “It's hard not to be fascinated. He's as tall as I am, ”said Linda Ivany of Syracuse University in New York. She and her team discovered that the diplomoceras maximum it wo...

Meteorite provides important information about water on Mars | Digital Trends Spanish

An investigation carried out by the University of Tokyo revealed evidence of water from 4.4 billion years ago in a Martian meteorite discovered in the Sahara desert in 2011. Although it was already known that Mars harbored water about 3.7 billion years ago, with this new analysis of the NWA 7533 meteorite, the researchers estimate that the water was likely present a long time before. For researchers, this type of analysis helps to understand how Mars was formed and what the process of evolution of its crust and mantle was like. Also, the findings are in line with the hypotheses that hold that water could be one of the substances that occur naturally during the formation of planets. This look would distance itself from the theory that states that the meteorite, nicknamed "Black Beau...
