Fresh imagery shows that a storm system has changed color in the planet Jupiter's turbulent atmosphere, creating a third "Red Spot" to join the centuries-old Great Red Spot and the 2-year-old Red Spot Jr.
The Platypus genetic code has been unraveled
and in Denmark, a 54-million-year-old Parrot has been found.
The fossil—a large wing bone called the humerus—represents the oldest and most northerly remains of a parrot ever discovered, the study authors say. Parrot fossils are scarce, because their small, light bones tend to be destroyed before they can become fossilized. The discovery suggests that parrots evolved in the Northern Hemisphere before branching into wildly diverse species in the southern tropics.
