Mathematician: Our universe is really chaotic; we just don’t see it that way | Uncommon Descent

Is it only selective attention that causes us to see order in the universe?There is another, more interesting, explanation for the structure of the laws of nature. Rather than saying that the universe is very structured, say that the universe is mostly chaotic and for the most part lacks structure

Harvard study models forelimbs of echidnas to shed light on evolution – Harvard Gazette

Using a detailed, musculoskeletal model of an echidna forelimb, Harvard scientists are not only shedding light on how the little-studied echidna’s forelimbs work, but also opening a window into understanding how extinct mammals might have used those limbs.

Greenhouse gas ‘detergent’ recycles itself in atmosphere — ScienceDaily

A simple molecule in the atmosphere that acts as a ‘detergent’ to breakdown methane and other greenhouse gases has been found to recycle itself to maintain a steady global presence in the face of rising emissions, according to new research. Understanding its role in the atmosphere is critical for determining the lifetime of methane, a powerful contributor to climate change.
