“A Cosmic Forest” –Primordial Black Holes May Unveil Nature of Dark Matter –Great Discoveries Channel

New research has focused on the abundance of primordial black holes that formed just fractions of a second after the Big Bang that are 50 times more massive than the sun, analyzing the interaction of the light emitted from these extremely distant quasars with the cosmic web, a network of filaments composed of gas and…

Scientists identify previously unknown ‘hybrid zone’ between hummingbird species

Allen’s and Rufous hummingbirds in the northwest are hybridizing, and scientists hope that studying them may provide new insights into how biodiversity evolves. Credit: Brian Myers We usually think of a species as being reproductively isolated—that is, not mating with other species in the wild. Occasionally, however, closely related species do interbreed. New research just…
