Researchers reconstruct the precise bite of an early mammal

The investigated dentition of P. fruitaensis. The upper molars (M2, M3) are offset from the lower ones (m2, m3). This causes the cusps to interlock in a way that creates a sharp cutting edge.

A Precise Mosaic View of Mars’s South Pole

To get a precise view of a planet’s surface, scientists can build a mosaic using images captured by cameras mounted on an orbiting spacecraft. This process requires accounting for how the spacecraft and its camera were oriented when each photo was taken, as well as how that positioning corresponds to existing topographic data. […]
