The Missing Link?

A 47-million-year-old fossil of a primate may be the long sought missing link between humans and apes. Nicknamed "Ida," the lemur-like creature had opposable thumbs, and fingernails instead of claws.

Complex Hubble Spacewalk a Success

Two spacewalking astronauts, John Grunsfeld and Drew Feustel, spent six and a half hours on Saturday installing a new high-tech instrument on Hubble as well as performing complex repairs to the space telescope's broken planetary camera.

Any Belief Lights Up Brain

Dr. Alasdair Coles, an Anglican priest and lecturer in neurology at University of Cambridge, has reviewed several brain imaging studies involving people of faith in an attempt to discover if there are unique brain signatures for religious experiences. Coles concluded that there were "no differences in the signatures for verifiable or unverifiable beliefs," meaning the brain image of a Madonna fan humming along to one of her songs would likely look the same as one of a religious person singing a spiritual song.

Robotic Exoskeleton

Cyberdyne Corporation of Japan has begun production of a cybernetic bodysuit designed to help people with weak muscles or disabilities. The HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb) suit uses special pads which attach to muscles and detect nerve signals from the brain. HAL weighs around 50 pounds, but can increase a user's strength by up to tenfold. More at FOXNews.com.

Cosmic Hand

In a new image from NASA's Chandra Observatory, X-rays emanating from a nebula resemble a hand reaching out for light.

Rare Asteroid Rocks

Recovered pieces of an asteroid spotted over the Sudan desert back in October may tell us something about the solar system's early history. The recovery of the rocks, which belong to a rare class of asteroid, mark the first time scientists were able to track an asteroid from space to the ground.

Robot Supermodel

A female robot recently made her debut on the catwalk during Tokyo's Fashion Week. Her 42 motion motors have been programmed to mimic the moves of a live model.
