Fine threads of million-degree plasma revealed in sharpest-ever images of sun

Science
April 9 (UPI) -- The sharpest-ever photos of the sun, captured by NASA's High-Resolution Coronal Imager, Hi-C, have revealed the fine magnetic threads of super heated plasma that make up the sun's outer layer. The new images were processed by a team of scientists from the University of Central Lancashire, in Britain, and NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. Data collected by Hi-C and analyzed by the international team of researchers could offer fresh insights into the behavior of the sun's magnetized atmosphere. Until now, much of the sun's atmosphere was a dark blur. But Hi-C's imaging abilities allow the space telescope to pick up solar features as small as 40 miles. The latest images -- captured in 2018 and detailed this week in the Astrophysical Journal -- revealed dense swirls of s...

Earliest evidence of hominin interbreeding revealed by DNA analysis

Science
Feb. 21 (UPI) -- According to a new study, hominin populations were interbreeding at least 700,000 years ago. The revelation was made possible by statistical models and sophisticated genetic analysis methods developed by researchers at the University of Utah. In 2017, anthropologist Alan Rogers claimed to have found genetic evidence of an early separation of Neanderthal and Denisovan lineages and a population bottleneck among their ancestors. When anthropologists Fabrizio Mafessoni and Kay Prüfer analyzed the same DNA data, they arrived at a different interpretation. Rogers agreed that his original analysis was flawed. "Both of our methods under discussion were missing something, but what?" Rogers asked in a news release. Rogers returned to the data in search of patterns of mutations or
