    What if humans weren't the first civilization on Earth?

    Is it possible that modern humans aren't the first civilization on Earth? This is the insanely interesting question probed by "The Silurian Hypothesis", a new paper authored by Gavin A.

If Bridenstine is approved in the final Senate vote expected this week, he’ll bring some odd qualifications to the job, and likely some controversy.
