Scientists Claim to have Found World’s Oldest Fish

It has been revealed in a recent report by the researchers from Japan and Australia that they have found the world’s oldest fish.

It was revealed that it has been discovered in the East Timor. The research team is of the view that this throws light on the intelligence and skill of the fishermen, back 42,000 years ago. The new archaeological discovery reveals the expertise of the fishermen

It was revealed by Professor Sue O’ Connor of the Australian National University that there have been as many as 2800 fish that have been caught, all those years back. She further added that this discovery also unravels the excellent cognitive skills that people used to have, in order to be able to make that huge catch.

It reveals that the early man had developed enough ways of survival and good ways of catching fish for themselves .This shows how intelligent man was since the beginning and how he had started planning for a future.

Scientists and archaeologists have found fishes like Tuna, barracudas as well as sharks, in the olden times.

“When I discovered it in 2005, I didn’t think that Jerimalai would tell us about the very early occupation of Timor. I was quite surprised when I found all these fish bones and turtle bones”, revealed Professor ‘Connor.

She further revealed that there has been excavation done on two small pits only so far, but they have found as many as 39,000 bones of fish, together with a number of other precious artifacts like animal remains, fish hooks, shell beads, bone points and so on.

She revealed that these sightings have unearthed the marine profession that had come into existence so many years ago, when man was slowly seeing evolution to become more than just the caveman.

You Can’t Even See the World’s Smallest Car!

Recent reports have revealed that there has been a recent development that might be called a breakthrough in the field of nanotechnology. It was revealed by a research team from the University of Groningen in Netherlands that it is actually a device made for nanotechnology purposes, and that it has only a few basic similarities with a car.

It has four wheels and an internal framework that could make it look somewhat like a car, well, to someone who can see it because it’s the size of a molecule and not visible to the naked eye. Electrical pulses will be used to keep the car moving and functional, and they are powered by millivolts. For each half turn taken by the car, it shall require recharging of energy.

Scientists have revealed that though people shouldn’t expect to see these cars speeding past them on streets soon enough, they can expect this to be a part of some major findings done in the field of nanotechnology.

This might seem to be a partly fictitious venture but it might soon be of great help to scientists in other fields of technology.

“To build the nanotechnology of the future like nano robots, machines and transporters you need something to fuel it.’ ‘There is a great incentive to build motors at the nano scale”, revealed Ben Feringa, of the University of Groningen.

It might soon be used an excellent tool for expertise in a number of other fields such as for busting crimes and making detections secretly. It was further added that the future of this discovery is yet hard to be predicted, but it is still going to help in the fundamentals that determine about any discovery in the time to come.
