Don, see this discussion we are having in this group. It's intriguing but far from clear if they are fossils of bacteria or chemical formations. I sure hope they are bacteria, of course.

Wow! NASA scientist publishes images of possible alien fossils.

Ethan Siegel from Starts with a Bang on the best Physics Theories now and their competitors

 

Last month, Sean Carroll asked the blogosphere to give their personal odds on whether various theories will turn out to be true or not.

 

And so I thought it would be a lot of fun to take a look at some of the best theories or most renowned theories and ideas out there today, and to tell you, if I were a Las Vegas bookmaker, what are the odds I would give you on various ideas. (If you know of an idea youwant my odds on, leave it in the comments, and I'll try to make this an ongoing series!)

The first idea I thought I'd take on is supersymmetry, or SUSY for short, and the hope that the LHC will find it. In short -- and this is coming from a cosmologist, not a particle theorist -- SUSY is a beautiful idea.

Where does it come from? Let's take the fundamental constants of the Universe that we know about, to help us understand this.

WITHOUT INTERVENTION, LIONS HEADING FOR EXTINCTION

From NPR:

ScreenHunter_01 Mar. 03 13.10 In 1960, there were 400,000 lions living in the wild. Today, there are just 20,000.

"That represents a 90 to 95 percent decline," says National Geographic explorer-in-residence Dereck Joubert. "Unless we start talking about this, these lions will be extinct within the next 10 or 15 years."

Joubert and his wife, Beverly, have lived among populations of big wild cats for decades. Based in Botswana, the filmmakers and conservationists have spent much of their career documenting Africa's animal population for National Geographic. In their latest documentary project, The Last Lions, the Jouberts follow the dwindling lion population living in Botswana's Okavango Delta as they battle their prey — the buffalo — as well as rival prides.

"Marauding lions [come] in from the outside into their territory and fight with them," says Dereck Joubert. "These territorial battles are dramatic and often end up in death one way or another."

But obtaining dramatic footage of lions battling each other in the murky, swamplike Okavango Delta is not easy, even for seasoned documentarians like the Jouberts. They followed lions across river systems, pushing their car into chest-height water while driving — and they often had a front-row seat to heated attacks.

ScienceDaily (Mar. 4, 2011) — Evidence for a diversified sea-based economy among North American inhabitants dating from 12,200 to 11,400 years ago is emerging from three sites on California's Channel Islands.
