    Why Mars Died, and Earth Lived

    The Mars rover, Curiosity, is the latest in a long line of missions to Mars… Landers sent to scoop its soil and study its rocks, orbiters sent to map its valleys and ridges. They are all asking the same question. Did liquid water once flow on this dry and dusty world? Did it support life in any form? And are there remnants left to find? The science that comes out of these missions may help answer a much larger, more philosophical question… Is our planet Earth the norm, in a galaxy run through with life-bearing planets? Or is Earth a rare gem, with a unique make-up and history that allowed…

    Why are these monkeys are stealing from tourists? | World’s Sneakiest Animals – BBC

    These monkeys are expert thieves. Here we go, here we go! Oh, and there you go. Brazen, audacious. They’ve worked out exactly how to get what they want. Oh dear, oh dear.

    The Largest Black Holes in the Universe

    We’ve never seen them directly, yet we know they are there, lurking within dense star clusters or wandering the dust lanes of the galaxy, where they prey on stars or swallow planets whole. Our Milky Way may harbor millions of black holes, the ultra dense remnants of dead stars. But now, in the universe far beyond our galaxy, there’s evidence of something far more ominous, a breed of black holes that has reached incomprehensible size and destructive power. Just how large, and violent, and strange can they get? A new era in astronomy has revealed a universe long hidden to us. High-tech instruments sent into space have been tuned to…
