Mollusks have been around for so long (at least 500 million years), are so prevalent on land and in water (from backyard gardens to the deep ocean), and are so valuable to people (clam chowder, oysters on the half shell) that one might assume scientists had learned everything about them. “Here´s this big, diverse group of animals, and we don´t know how they were related to each other,” said Casey Dunn, an evolutionary biologist at Brown University who specializes in...

Brown Dwarf -- Brown dwarfs are a special type of low-mass star (approximately 13-70 Jupiter masses) that do not have nuclear fusion occurring in their cores during their time on the main sequence.

Many brown dwarfs continue to glow in the red and infrared after their lithium is exhausted. This glow is...
