g Intelligence - Researchers presenting new fossil evidence of an exceptionally well-preserved 55-million-year-old North American mammal have found it shares a common ancestor with rodents and primates, including humans. See article.
g Cosmicus - The lunar South Pole – a land of craters, shadows, intrigue and science! Here's a wide-angle mosaic of the South Pole is one of the latest stunning images from the Lunar Reconnaissance Oribiter. See article.
