What To Do Before the Asteroid Strikes by Discover Magazine.
The doomsday rock is out there. It’s just a matter of time ...
Apophis is one of millions of asteroids roaming the solar system. None are known to pose an immediate threat, but some are bona fide civilization stompers. A monster rock discovered just this year, with the prosaic name of 2007PA8, is more than two miles across, large enough to wipe out most of humanity. Fortunately, the odds that it will hit are essentially zero. Smaller asteroids are less deadly but much more common.
Revealed: What IS the secret of Silbury Hill? by Daily Mail.
... it is from these peoples, who built Silbury and Stonehenge, that most British people today are descended. But as to why our ancestors built these huge monuments, we can only guess.

Homegrown Hauntings by Minnesota Daily.
he paranormal - it's all a crock, right? I'm sure paranormal researcher Chad Lewis must hear some version of that question all the time. It seems the public is both fascinated by and skeptical about the existence of the paranormal and just what it means for whatever comes next for those of us who leave this world.
If We Had No Moon by Astrobiology Magazine.
The Earth has a large moon, making it unique in the inner solar system. Mercury and Venus have no moons, and Mars has only two small asteroid-sized objects orbiting it. In this essay, the father of the SMART-1 lunar mission, Bernard Foing of the European Space Agency, looks at the effect the Moon has had on the Earth, and explores how different our world would be if we had no planetary companion. Would life have evolved differently, or even appeared on Earth without the Moon?
And last but not least - is baby bigfoot caught on video?
