    When in 1981 Louis and Walter Alvarez, the father and son team, unearthed a tell-tale Iridium-rich sedimentary horizon at the 65 million years-old Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary at Gubbio, Italy, their find heralded a paradigm shift in the study of terrestrial evolution.  Since the 1980s the discovery and study of asteroid impact ejecta in the oldest... more...

    From prehistoric times, mankind has looked up at the night sky, and puzzled at the changing positions of the stars.

Over the last few hundred years, many scientific careers - and considerable resources - have been devoted to measuring their positions and motions with... more...
