    Up to a million species live in the seas, and two-thirds of those ocean-dwellers may still be undiscovered, according to a new study that also cataloged all of the known species that dwell beneath the waves. The findings, published today (Nov. 15) in the journal Current Biology, suggest that the oceans remain a vast, uncharted territory. The new registry could help guide marine conservation efforts by giving scientists a universal way to describe the underwater creatures. "If you want to understand life on Earth, then of course you need to know what life there is on Earth," said the study's...

The bits of debris appear to have been shed by a long-period comet. Long-period comets whiz by the sun very...

While good, I didn't think Potts to be that fantastic. However last weekend, the third season of "Britain's Got Talent" opened and another diamond in the rough emerged. This one is quite fantastic. Susan Boyle, a frumpy looking 47 year old Scottish spinster, who lives with her cat "Pebbles" and admits she's never been kissed, came out on stage and told the audience she wanted to...
