Scientists Dig into Chesapeake Bay Impact Crater -  Geologists drilling half a mile below Virginia's Eastern Shore say they have uncovered more signs of a space rock's impact 35 million years ago. For more than two weeks, scientists drilled around the clock alongside a parking lot across the harbor from Cape Charles. They stopped at 2,700 feet. Cape Charles is considered Ground Zero for the resulting 56-mile-wide depression below what's now the Chesapeake Bay. 
Primal Scream: The Infant Universe Speaks -  An astronomer has turned observations of the early universe into a sound clip that represents a primal scream from the first million years after the Big Bang. Other studies have generated sound clips out of data from the universe and even from our own solar system. But none have reached so far back in time and space.Other studies have generated sound clips out of data from the universe and even from our own solar system

World 'appeasing' climate threat  - BBC  One of the UK's best-known scientists, Professor James Lovelock, says only a catastrophe will prompt the world to tackle the threat of climate change. He says the global climate treaty, the Kyoto Protocol, is simply an attempt to appease a self-regulating Earth system. Professor Lovelock thinks the Earth's attempts to restore its equilibrium may eliminate civilisation and most humans. Professor Lovelock won acclaim for developing the Gaia Hypothesis, which suggests the Earth functions as a single organism which maintains the conditions necessary for its survival.
