The Mammoth Site of Hot Springs is an active paleontological dig site, which boasts the largest concentration of mammoth remains in the world. Current mammoth count is 61, with 58 Columbian and three woolly mammoths. Mammoths and other megafauna got trapped in a sinkhole and drown about 26,000 years ago. Their bones were buried and preserved.Paleontology is the study of pre-existing life based on fossils. A fossil could be an actual portion of the animal, such as bones, teeth, or shells, or maybe replaced by minerals such as silica, iron and manganese as in petrified wood. A fossil may also be a track or a trail, an imprint or a cast, anything that indicates preexisting life forms.

CES 2018 in Las Vegas

Share/Bookmark

Consumer Electronics Show revealed full range of technological gadgets for everyday lives. The LG’s rollable TV prototype was one of the most exciting announcements of CES 2018. LG arguably surpassed its biggest rival Samsung in terms of TV picture quality. The bad news is LG has no plans to actually release a rollable TV in 2018. The new LG InstaView ThinQ fridge might just be the coolest refrigerator on the planet. It’s packed from top to bottom with awesome new tech, but the star of the show is the touchscreen display that runs webOS and supports all sorts of smart features. Knock on the screen twice, however, and it instantly becomes transparent to show you what’s in the fridge behind the door without having to open it. A Korean tech giant on Thursday announced new robots that take aim squarely at the jobs of many services industry workers around the globe.

Mars Rover was Tested in the Atacama Desert

Share/Bookmark

The rover was tested near the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in the Atacama Desert, which is one of the most Mars-like terrains on Earth. The 2018 mission of the ExoMars programme will deliver a European rover and a Russian surface platform to the surface of Mars. A Proton rocket will be used to launch the mission, which will arrive to Mars after a nine-month journey. The mission will drill 30 times deeper beneath the surface of Mars than the currently operating Curiosity rover, reaching a depth of approximately six-and-a-half feet (two meters).
