Play Video: After 50 years, Lucy faces rivals with other human ancestors


In 1974, paleoanthropologist Don Johanson and student Tom Gray unearthed a 40% complete skeleton of an early human ancestor, fundamentally changing the human family tree. The specimen acquired a nickname that persisted: Lucy, after the Beatles song playing at the fossil hunter’s camp--“Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” At 3.2 million years old, some thought her species, Australopithecus afarensis, was close to when the ancestor of humans had split from the ancestor of chimpanzees. But in the past 50 years, discoveries of hominins both older and the same age as Lucy have pushed that split millions of years deeper in time, and challenged her position as mother of us all.

Developing athletic ability requires practice, even for robots. Using an approach driven by trial and error called deep reinforcement learning, researchers at DeepMind helped these soccer-playing robots develop skills, agility, and techniques to improve their play--all at a higher level than could be manually programmed. The computer “agents” controlling the robots picked up the rules and nuances of the game by observing human soccer players, then playing against each other in both simulations and using real-life robots. Robots play each other to improve their game, get computational “coaching,” and even mimic defensive moves of human players. While these athletic machines may not be making starting lineups anytime soon, computer scientists hope that this ability to learn and perform complex tasks in unpredictable environments will prove useful well beyond the soccer field.

Scientists have figured out why some miniaturized frogs from Brazil are such clumsy jumpers. A 2022 study published in Science Advances reveals that among adult vertebrates, members of the genus Brachycephalus have the smallest known semicircular canals – the part of the inner ear necessary for maintaining balance and spatial orientation. The diminutive size of these canals results in low sensitivity to angular acceleration, preventing the frogs from controlling their posture as they prepare to land. VIDEO CREDIT: RICHARD L.

Researchers Valerii Plotnikov and Dan Fisher slice a sample from 52,000-year-old mammoth skin. The skin provided the first ever look at the 3-D structure of the extinct animal’s DNA. It was so well-preserved that researchers could tell which genes were active at the time of the animal’s death and which were turned off. Those clues may help scientists learn how extinct animals functioned, not just what they looked like. Read more: https://www.sciencenews.org/article/drying-woolly-mammoth-dna-3d-glass Video: M.
