Researchers discover a trick to deter seagulls from stealing your food

The latest research has involved scientists approaching seagulls while either looking down at the ground or looking directly at the birds. (SWNS) According to researchers, vacationers can prevent seagulls from stealing their food by staring at them. Scientists believe that the simple solution could end the nightmare tourists have been exposed to for years by the feeding birds. In an …

Scientists first discover a triple star system that ruptures its planet-forming disk in a cosmic state

Clusters of stars can tear their planet-forming disk into pieces, leaving warped, misaligned rings, scientists discover in a groundbreaking study. Solar systems like ours In general, their planets all form in the same flat plane. However, as an international team of scientists found in a new study, this is not always the case. After 11 years of studying GW Orionis, …

Astronomers discover a super rare type of black hole for the first time

Scientists have figured out what, in their opinion, is the most powerful, massive, and most distant Fusion of two black holes release the energy of eight suns in the history of the universe. And from that event they discovered something even more special – a super rare kind of black hole. The result of the collision is a “medium mass” …

Scientists discover the earliest fossil evidence of an imitation of insect lichen

An ecological reconstruction of a 165-million-year-old lacewing that mimics a lichen that existed during the same period. Photo credit: Xiaoran Zuo (CC BY 4.0) Scientists have found the earliest known evidence that an insect is mimicking a lichen as a survival strategy, as new evidence shows in today eLife. The study suggests that the Jurassic moth lacewing Lichenipolystoechoten mimicked the …
