    Scientists find 17-pound meteorite in icy Antarctica

    A daring team of scientists has endured the inhospitable conditions of the icy desert of Antarctica to recover five new meteorites, including a near-17-pound monster space rock. The team of scientists included Field Museum and the University of Chicago researcher Maria Valdes, who estimated that of the 45,000 meteorites recovered to date from the icy wasteland of Antarctica, only 100 or so have been as large as the largest member of this new haul, which weighs 16.7 pounds (7.6 kilograms).

    Here come the robot doctors

    ChatGPT, the generative AI juggernaut, is getting a lot smarter when it comes to health care. Why it matters: A lot of clinical diagnoses and decisions could someday be made by machines, rather than by human doctors. Driving the news: ChatGPT recently passed all three parts of the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination, although just barely, as part of a recent research experiment.

    Why are most rocks on Earth much younger than the planet itself?

    The rocks on Earth are not all the same age. In fact, most are significantly younger than the planet itself. The oldest sections of the oceanic crust are thought to be 200 million years old—a blink of an eye in the planet's billion-year lifespan. What is going on here? "Earth is an active planet," explains Boyet, a geochemist at the University of Clermont Auvergne in France. "This makes it different to other planets in our solar system, as well as to our moon."

    Meghan Markle is losing America's sympathy

    Meghan Markle is once again at the centre of a media storm after a public attack that her supporters say is wildly disproportionate and evidence of racialised bias.

The Duchess of Sussex was lumped in by Politico with Donald Trump, Elon Musk, Kanye West, Elizabeth Holmes and Sam Bankman-Fried on a list of "narcissists" who the public have lost interest in.

    Blinded by the light: how skyglow pollution is separating us from the stars

    On a clear dark Queensland night in 1997, Brendan Downs was staring up into the cosmos alongside a band of other amateur astronomers. He trained his telescope on a galaxy called NGC 6769, floating more than 169m light years away, and took a picture. “I had a reference image that I had in a book at the time, and I visually compared the object on the screen to the object in the book,” he says. “I counted the number of stars I was looking at.”

    Apple's rumored electric car may not be fully self-driving after all

    Apple isn't done scaling back its plans for an electric car, apparently. Bloomberg sources say the EV, codenamed Project Titan, is no longer a fully self-driving machine. It will reportedly have a conventional wheel and pedals, and will 'only' drive itself on highways. The company has also pushed the launch back by a year to 2026, the tipsters claim.

    Google’s new Nest Wifi Pro mesh Wi-Fi looks good and works even better

    Google’s new Nest Wi-Fi Pro is an excellent upgrade if you’re coming from an existing Google router. I saw significantly faster speeds, improved reliability, and better performance on the Nest Wifi Pro — which adds Wi-Fi 6 and 6E — compared to the previous Nest Wifi system and its Wi-Fi 5. It can’t handle multi-gig speeds, but that’s (sadly) not going to be a problem for most people. And while initially, I experienced slow speeds and high latency in the furthest rooms from the main r...
