Hubble Telescope confirmed presence of dark vortex on Neptune

After using data from Hubble Telescope, astronomers have informed that an interesting spot detected on Neptune is a dark vortex. NASA's Hubble Space Telescope detected this high-pressure system when bright clouds pointed towards its existence.

According to astronomer Mike Wong, of the University of California at Berkeley, Dark vortex can travel through atmosphere like huge, lens-shaped gaseous mountains. Wong led the team that analyzed the Hubble’s data and confirmed presence of Dark vortex.

Hairs, feathers and scales have a lot in common: Study

Hairs, feathers and scales have a lot in common: Study

Earlier, researchers have considered hair in mammals and feathers in birds to be different from scales in reptiles as reptile embryos lack placodes (thickened skin patches are created by special cells termed as columnar cells). A research paper published in the journal Science Advances has unveiled that a bird’s feathers, a reptile’s scales and a mammal’s hairs have originated from a common ancestor. They look different features, but the researchers said that these skin appendages may come from same origins.

Monkeys Are Like Us: They Become More Selective With Friends When They Grow Older

Monkeys are like humans in many ways, including a feature where both of them become selective when it comes to choosing friends. A new study has found that like humans, when monkeys get old, they have fewer friends.

Researchers at the German Primate Center noted the behavior in Barbary macaques. They noted that the monkeys engage in less social activities as they grow older. Why?

Common Milkweed Plants Needed To Sustain Monarch Butterfly Population

Common Milkweed Plants Needed To Sustain Monarch Butterfly Population

Efforts are being made to give all possible assistance to the Monarch butterfly to endure, flourish and revive, as the population of this migratory insect has been decreasing. There are several reasons behind their alleviating population, including various environmental aspects, use of weed sprays and chemicals, along with contracting forest region in Mexico where these butterflies spend their winters and alterations in weather trends.

Termites began farming millions of years before humans did

Termites began farming millions of years before humans did

Most of our supply of food comes from agriculture. Humans are believed to have started farming about 10,000 years ago but a new study has come out with a finding that termites began farming about 25 million years before human started farming practices.

Neptune: first dark vortex for 21st century discovered

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has confirmed the presence of dark vortex on Neptune. The high-pressure system has been identified for the first time on Neptune in the 21st century. Astronomers came to know about the presence from bright clouds.

Astronomer Mike Wong, of the University of California at Berkeley, explained that dark vortices move through the atmosphere as massive, lens-shaped gaseous mountains. It also carries clouds that are akin to organic clouds that are in the shape of pancakes.

Older monkeys become choosier about their social circle as they age

Older monkeys become choosier about their social circle as they age

It has been increasingly noticed that humans become selective with whom they want to spend time with as they age. Now, a new research has found that even monkeys have this quality. Researchers have come to know the same after carrying out series of experimental and behavioral studies on Barbary macaques.
