Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A few years back, Kelly Clarkson, the first winner of television's biggest talent show, American Idol, reminded us of the adage “what doesn't kill you makes you stronger,” in her 2011 hit single 'Stronger'. The unfortunate failure in that logic is that sometimes what you come up against will actually kill you. Today, we learn about researchers from the University of Exeter Medical School who have studied a potentially lethal...

Toxic Ocean Conditions During Ancient Extinction Event Analyzed
2013-10-30 04:24:55

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Toxic oxygen-free and hydrogen sulfide-rich ocean conditions that existed during a major extinction event nearly 94 million years ago could repeat themselves in the future, according to new research being published online this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Research, led by biogeochemists at the University of California, Riverside, suggests that the previous estimates of these oxygen-free,...

Colon Cancer Thrives On Rotten Egg Gas

Clue To Smell Of Ancient Earth Given By Fossils
2013-04-29 15:23:27

University of Oxford Tiny 1,900 million-year-old fossils from rocks around Lake Superior, Canada, give the first ever snapshot of organisms eating each other and suggest what the ancient Earth would have smelled like. The fossils, preserved in Gunflint chert, capture ancient microbes in the act of feasting on a cyanobacterium-like fossil called Gunflintia — with the perforated sheaths of Gunflintia being the discarded leftovers of this early meal. A team, led by Dr David Wacey...

Sewer Gas Accelerates Plant Growth, Development

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Hydrogen sulfide, known to many as ℠sewer gas,´ is a deadly substance that many evolutionary biologists blame for several mass extinction events throughout Earth´s history. However, according to a new study in the open access journal PLOS ONE, very low doses of the pungent compound spur plant growth. The study´s lead researcher Frank Dooley, a University of Washington doctoral student, said he stumbled...

Oasis For Deep-sea Life Created From Sunken Wood
2013-01-22 13:50:33

Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Trees do not grow in the deep sea, nevertheless sunken pieces of wood can develop into oases for deep-sea life - at least temporarily until the wood is fully degraded. A team of Max Planck researchers from Germany now showed how sunken wood can develop into attractive habitats for a variety of microorganisms and invertebrates. By using underwater robot technology, they confirmed their hypothesis that animals from hot and cold seeps would be attracted to the wood due...

Sulfur (or Sulphur; see spelling below) is the chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol S and atomic number 16. It is an abundant, tasteless, odorless, multivalent non-metal. Sulfur, in its native form, is a yellow crystaline solid. In nature, it can be found as the pure element or as sulfide and sulfate minerals. It is an essential element for life and is found in several amino acids. Its commercial uses are primarily in fertilizers but it is also widely used in gunpowder,...
