Chinese Scientists Have Restored Cells of the Woolly Mammoth --"Disappeared After Ice Age 4,000 Years Ago"

Chinese scientists claim they have restored the cells of the woolly mammoth that disappeared from the Earth some 4,000 years ago, with the only obstacle being a suitable surrogate.

Why is NASA is Exploring an Alien World in Antarctica? (VIDEO/AUDIO)

Mount Erebus is at the end of our world -- and offers a portal to another. Covered in ice and filled with bubbling lava, the massive volcano rising 12,448 feet (3,794 meters) above Ross Island in Antarctica is the perfect proxy for an alien world, which is why NASA's Aaron Curtis, who joined JPL's Extreme Environments Robotics Group in 2016, travels there to test space exploration robots.

"Strange Signal" --Picked Up By NASA's Cassini Spacecraft at South Pole of Saturn's Enceladus Revealed Hidden Global Ocean (WATCH Today's "Galaxy" Stream)

The odd signal Cassini detected didn't reveal a frozen, airless body. Instead, it looked something like a comet that was actively emitting gas. The magnetometer detected that Saturn's magnetic field, which envelops Enceladus, was perturbed above the moon's south pole in a way that didn't make sense for an inactive world. Could it be that the moon was actively replenishing gases it was breathing into space?

"Undiscovered Worlds" --NASA Needs Your Help Searching Space-Telescope Movies for Unknown Objects

NASA is inviting the public to help search for possible undiscovered worlds in the outer reaches of our solar system and in neighboring interstellar space. A new website, called Backyard Worlds: Planet 9, lets everyone participate in the search by viewing brief movies made from images captured by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission. The movies highlight objects that have gradually moved across the sky.

"Alien Life on Earth" --NASA Announces Discovery of Bizarre 50,000 Year-Old Life Trapped in a Crystal Cave System--"Both Fairyland and Hell" (VIDEO)

We live on an alien world. There’s an entire hidden part of planet beneath the surface that we don’t think about. Earth's rock fracture habitat goes down to 5 kilometers, maybe down to 10, and is thoroughly infested with life forms that are dramatically different from the stuff on the surface. So different, in fact, that NASA uses these extreme lifeforms as a guide to its exploration of other worlds in the solar system. Surface life has photosynthesis, but subsurface only a tiny fraction of that energy trickles down. Not a lot of organisms are using organic material, they are processing minerals such as iron and manganese from the rock they live in and could be a model for life on Mars, which gets the most headlines, but Saturn’s moons Enceledus and Titan are both prime candidates, as is Jupiter’s Europa. Even possible cave life on the Moon.

"Zealandia" --Evidence Emerges for an Eighth "Lost Continent" We Didn't Know Existed (VIDEO)

Earth may have a continent we didn't even know existed, scientists say. "If the elevation of Earth's solid surface had first been mapped in the same way as those of Mars and Venus - which lack the arbitrary datums of opaque liquid oceans - we contend that Zealandia would, much earlier, have been investigated and identified as one of Earth's continents," according to geological scientists in a report by the BBC.

ET Signals from the Milky Way --"We've Missed Signals We Were Totally Unaware Of" (VIEW Today's "Galaxy" Stream)

"Do you think that we've missed signals along the way?" SyFyWire's Don Kaye asked SETI Institute's chief astronomer, Seth Shostak during a recent interview. "That we're totally unaware of. That there are possibly signals that are being transmitted in such a way that we're too primitive to pick them up?

"This is the first clear detection of organic molecules from orbit on a main belt body," said Maria Cristina De Sanctis, lead author of the NASA study, based at the National Institute of Astrophysics, Rome. "This discovery adds to our understanding of the possible origins of water and organics on Earth," added Julie Castillo-Rogez, Dawn project scientist based at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
