Distant Jupiter-like world may be the darkest planet ever found

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - Fri, 2018-04-20 18:30
The clouds on WASP-104b – an exoplanet orbiting a star 466 light years away – have been swept away by radiation, leaving a surface that reflects almost no light

Trees may have a ‘heartbeat’ that is so slow we never noticed it

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - Fri, 2018-04-20 15:00
Trees repeatedly move their branches up and down during the night, and this may reflect water being pumped along the branches – just like a human pulse
