Scientists film elusive, fast creature in the deep sea

For likely the first time, biologists captured a wild, elusive ram’s horn squid, or Spirula spirula, live on video. The deep ocean — particularly the twilight zone, a dark realm extending some 660 to 3,300 feet below the surface — is little known and woefully unexplored. When navigating the depths …

Watch a NASA spacecraft touch down on asteroid Bennu

Touchdown. Earlier in October, NASA successfully collected rocky samples from asteroid Bennu, a relatively small, well-preserved space rock some 200 million miles from Earth. On Friday, NASA released footage of the spacecraft, OSIRIS-REx, approaching and briefly touching down on the rubbly Bennu. The events, seen in the space agency’s tweet …

Cough-scrutinizing AI shows major promise as an early warning system for COVID-19

Asymptomatic spread of COVID-19 is a huge contributor to the pandemic, but of course if there are no symptoms, how can anyone tell they should isolate or get a test? MIT research has found that hidden in the sound of coughs is a pattern that subtly, but reliably, marks a …

Christina Sutton was diagnosed with COVID-19 in July. Although she tested positive for the virus, she had very few symptoms. But even after those went away, Sutton still experienced concentration and memory problems.  “I would describe it as like a waking dream,” said Sutton. “You’re there, but you’re not fully …
