Tyson Fury looking in impeccable shape as Eddie Hearn reveals venue and date for Anthony Joshua fight will be announced NEXT WEEK

Sports
Eddie Hearn has said an exact date and venue for boxing’s most highly-anticipated fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury will be confirmed by the end of next week. The Matchroom promoter did not give too much away but confidently announced on Friday: “I think end of next week it will be done.” Fury, the WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight champion, has not fought since his dominant victory over Deontay Wilder in February 2020. Joshua vs Fury could well be the biggest fight in boxing history Hearn confirmed last month that contracts had been signed for a two-fight deal to take place this year. Yet, there has been no confirmation on either the date or venue for the first meeting and it seems as though Saudi Arabia is the frontrunner. However...

Neutrino from shredded star reveals gigantic cosmic particle accelerator

Neutrino from shredded star reveals gigantic cosmic particle accelerator

Science
Feb. 22 (UPI) -- Astrophysicists have traced a subatomic particle called a neutrino to its cosmic origins, a tidal disruption event located some 700 million light-years from Earth. The new research -- published Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy -- suggests the violent destruction of a faraway star by a supermassive black hole was powerful enough to send a tiny, near-frictionless particle racing across space. Advertisement The neutrino's 700-million-mile journey was sparked by what scientists call a cosmic particle accelerator, a phenomenon born of a tidal disruption event. When a star ventures too close to supermassive black hole, the black hole's powerful gravitational pull acts more strongly on the side of the star closest to the black hole. As a result, the star becomes pulled and...

World’s oldest DNA reveals new mammoth lineage

Science
Feb. 17 (UPI) -- The world's oldest DNA, recovered from 1.2-million-year-old mammoth teeth, has offered scientists new insights into the genomic history of mammoths. Scientists recovered and sequenced DNA from the teeth of three mammoth specimens preserved in the permafrost of eastern Siberia. Advertisement Using the latest genomic sequencing technologies, including new methods for distinguishing between mammoth DNA and contaminating DNA from bacteria and humans, researchers were able to sequence the genomes of the the specimens. The sequencing work, described Wednesday in the journal Nature, showed one of the three mammoths was not like the other two. "Two of the specimens belonged to the same genetic lineage, which initially comprised a type of steppe mammoth that later evolved into th...

Bitcoin has jumped more than 10% to a record high after Tesla said it had invested $ 1.5bn (£1.09bn) in the cryptocurrency and would soon start accepting it as a form of payment for its cars and other products.The disclosure of the investment, in a regulatory filing, sent Bitcoin up by 13% to over $ 43,000 in Monday trading. At such levels, one Bitcoin would be enough to buy one of the electric car maker's lower end vehicles in the US, where prices start at less than $ 40,000.
