Ideas from a class on Egypt

Ideas from a class on Egypt:

Tomb 55 in the valley of the Kings.
Osirison: maybe made by Seti I, maybe a much older monument.

Amature archaeologists in the early 1900s: anyone could do it, for all sorts of reasons.

Tomb of Amunhotep II, found by a Frenchmanm Victor Loret, in 1898 (the guy after Gaston Maspero).
That guy had a nervious breakdown after finding the tomb.

Duck billed humans

Duck billed humans that detect electrical sources in their bills.  They eat bugs and vegitable matter, eggs, etc.  Great sensor operators.  Curious.

Ancient bison kill site uncovered in Montana


BROWNING, Mont. – Archaeologists working on the Blackfeet Indian reservation in northwestern Montana say they have uncovered a vast former hunting complex where bison were stampeded over a cliff at least 1,000 years ago.
Researchers say the 9-mile-long area contains a well-preserved "drive line" system used to funnel bison to their deaths, along with bison bones and the remnants of campsites with hundreds of tepee rings.
The site is on a remote plateau overlooking the Two Medicine River. Researchers say it could become one of the largest and most significant Blackfeet heritage sites in the region.
Plains Indians harvested bison hundreds of years ago by stampeding them over cliffs. John Murray, the Blackfeet Tribe's historic preservation officer, says research at the new site will help tribal members better understand their history.

Comets created difference in Jupiter's moons

Findings could shed light on our solar system, and planets in general


Each of Jupiter's more than 60 moons has its own unique character, but scientists have often wondered at the striking differences between the surfaces and interiors of two of the gas giant's largest moons, Ganymede and Callisto.
A new study, detailed in the Jan. 24 issue of the journal Nature Geoscience, might have found an explanation for the disparate features of these Galilean moons: Ganymede was pummeled by more and faster comets impacts than its sister moon billions of years ago.
While Ganymede and Callisto are similar in size and both made up of a mixture of ice and rock, data from both the Galileo and Voyager missions show that they sport different looks, both on the inside and outside.

Scientists propose new ‘electroweak’ star

These would emit mostly hard-to-detect neutrinos instead of photons


Scientists have proposed a new class of star, one that has an exotic stellar engine that would emit mostly hard-to-detect neutrinos instead of photons of light like regular stars.
These objects, dubbed "electroweak stars," are plausible because of the Standard Model of physics — though none have been detected yet — partly because they wouldn't shine very brightly in visible light.
