But researchers at the University of Munster have calculated that the moon is much younger. It turns out that Earth's satellite could have formed 4.425 billion years ago.

Paleontologists have discovered fossils that support the theory that dinosaurs lived and bred in what is now Alaska. A group of scientists from Imperial College London discovered in northern Alaska a fragment of the jaw of a young dinosaur of the dromaeosaurid family. Paleontologists came to the conclusion that the jaw fragments found belonged to a dinosaur born near the place of their discovery. We are talking about a fossilized fragment of the bone of the lower jaw of a dinosaur no more than 14 mm long and about 70 million years old. One of the researchers, Tony Fiorillo, emphasized that the results of the study lead scientists to the idea that the dinosaurs considered the cold climate suitable "for making families and raising offspring."
