Recent puzzling observations of tiny variations in nuclear decay rates have led some to question the science behind carbon-14 dating and similar techniques. However scientists tested the hypothesis that solar radiation might affect the rate at which radioactive elements decay and found no detectable effect.
Fox and National Geographic have released the first trailer for Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, an epic follow up to Carl Sagan's widely renowned space documentary series. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson will host the new series, premiering in 2014.

This decision was made after India had decided to [...]
Darwin Day is a global celebration of science and reason held on or around Feb. 12, the birthday anniversary of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin. If you are hosting a Darwin Day event, you can post information about it on our events listing.
Neil deGrasse Tyson, the director of the Hayden Planetarium, at the American Museum of Natural History, is the host of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” on Fox, which is a sequel to Carl Sagan’s celebrated PBS series. Tyson’s rhetorical style differs dramatically from Sagan’s. Sagan paid deference to high culture; Tyson’s preferred frame of reference is pop culture. This does not mean that he has unsophisticated tastes. But when explaining science he is most likely to point to a movie such as “A Bug’s Life.” Tyson meets people where they are, rather than seeking to raise them to where he is.
Most genes involved in complex processes are present in sponges, new research shows. Sponges or Porifera -- there are over 8,000 species currently recognised -- are the most basal phylum of metazoans. They represent a rich animal diversity found throughout the world, from tropical climates to the arctic poles, and they are an excellent model to study metazoan evolution.
