An international research team has sequenced DNA recovered from mammoth remains that are up to 1.2 million years old.
The analyses, supported by @NSF, showed that the mammoth that inhabited North America during the last ice age was a hybrid animal. 🐘
From the ocean to the lab, the @NSF's new video guides you along as Jerry Goss '23 shares his summer research experience w/ @BIOSstation working on an NSF-funded project to classify plankton specifies to make it easier for scientists to uncover global environmental changes. #STEM
Filmed by #NSFfunded scientists, NSF’s Scientist Selfie series provides an intimate look into a day in the life, as they conduct their work, whether in the field, the lab or at one of NSF's facilities. Take a look:
Using volcanic ash as a stand-in for Martian dust, #NSFfunded scientists found that electrical discharges in Martian dust devils & storms are possible BUT the discharges would likely be small given the weak electrical fields in the Martian atmosphere.
Join us and our panel of preeminent African American #HBCU researchers as they share some of their career challenges and triumphs and discuss the importance of diversity in STEM education.

When a rare astronomical event happens, sometimes you want to get another look. 👀
Accurately identifying the source of a high-energy neutrino requires multiple messenger signals, like high-energy particles and visible, radio, and X-ray signals, to all, tell the same story.
Naiyiri-Blu Brooker grew up far from the sea but has been obsessed by marine life since she was a kid. When she saw a poster at school for an NSF-supported undergrad research opp for marine researchers, she jumped at the chance. 🌊
Happy birthday McMurdo Station - 65 years old today! Established #OnThisDay #OTD in 1956 in the lead up to the 1957-58 International Geophysical Year (IGY). Logistics hub for the US Antarctic Program, it’s the largest scientific research center in #Antarctica @NSF
