"During its expansion, the universe evolved towards its present state, which is homogeneous and isotropic on large scales. This is inferred, among other things, from the measurement of the so-called background radiation as nicely seen in the full sky image of the WMAP data. New results published in the renowned journal PRL show that homogenization in the investigated class of cosmological models is already completely explained by Einstein's theory of gravity and does not require any additional modifications." (© NASA / WMAP Science Team) Gravity can accelerate the homogenization of space-time as the universe evolves.

Fibre-optic cables are emerging as a valuable tool for geoscientists and glaciologists. They offer a relatively inexpensive way of measuring even the tiniest glacial earthquakes - plus they can also be used to obtain more accurate images of the geological subsurface in earthquake-prone megacities.

The trade-off between gleaners and exploiters does not explain the diversity of biological species in the way that scientists expected. Our understanding of biodiversity has to change.
