    Functioning ‘mechanical gears’ discovered in nature for the first time To the best of our knowledge, the mechanical gear (equally sized teeth cut into two rotating surfaces to lock them together as they turn) was invented by Greek mechanics in Alexandria around 300 B.C.E. Functioning ‘mechanical gears’ discovered in nature for the first time Since then, the simple concept has become a foundation of modern technology, allowing a wide range of machinery and vehicles, including automobiles and bicycles. However, As it turns out, a three-millimeter-long hopping insect known as Issus coleopterous beat us to this invention. Malcolm Burrows and Gregory...

    Scientists Find 500-Million-Year-Old Fossilized Brain The discovery of new evidence supports the previous speculation on 520 million-year-old human-old brain systems, provoking thoughts about the nature of brains, life, and intelligence in the cosmos. Soft, squishy, and delicate; brain and nervous system tissues maybe some of the worst candidates for preservation in the fossil record. In past years the best examples of the ancient brain and nerve structures have come from creatures trapped and preserved in amber that was a couple of hundred million years old. But a few years ago paleontologists claimed to have found evidence of brain structures in...

    Humans understood astronomy 40000 years ago, European caves provide proof According to a scientific study, 40,000-year-old cave paintings indicate the use of complex astronomy. According to experts, the ancient paintings that were believed to be symbols of prehistoric animals are actually ancient star maps. Early cave art reveals that people in the last ice age had a detailed knowledge of the night sky. They were hardly different from us today in terms of intellect. Animal symbols represent star constellations in the night sky. A new scientific study revealed that humans had a sophisticated knowledge of stars and constellations more than...

    Melting glacier sheds light upon hidden Viking era artifacts in Norway dated back to 300 AD The tremendous melting of the glaciers resulted in some recent archaeological discoveries revealing several well preserved historical objects, and one of these remarkable finds is the discoveries of artifacts from the Viking era on the hills that were once used for transportation purposes dated back to 300 A.D. as per the study. More glacial melt, although a disturbing factor of a much larger global warming effect, has provided ample shreds of evidence and remains of the age-old objects for today’s generation advantageously.
