Hawaii residents rue paradise built with 'lava discount'

Hawaii residents rue paradise built with 'lava discount'By Terray Sylvester and Jolyn Rosa PAHOA, Hawaii/HONOLULU (Reuters) – Six days before Kilauea began erupting on Hawaii’s Big Island, residents living under one of the world’s most active volcanoes attended a community forum on preparing for emergencies. It was prompted in part by a mistaken alert in January that North Korea had launched a ballistic missile attack on Hawaii, which sent residents and tourists scrambling for shelter across the U.S. Pacific island state. Living in paradise comes with risks for the mostly retired residents in communities around Kilauea, who must also cope with the occasional hurricane – and the rumbling volcano proved the most damaging.

The world's oldest recorded spider built herself a hole, then just stayed there till age 43

The world's oldest recorded spider built herself a hole, then just stayed there till age 43Just how many walking sticks would an elderly spider require? SEE ALSO: 5 common groceries made from microorganisms Researchers in Australia monitored what is most likely the world's oldest spider on record, who died at age 43, outstripping the previous record-holder, a 28-year-old tarantula. The lead researcher, Leanda Mason, said of the spider in question, "to our knowledge this is the oldest spider ever recorded, and her significant life has allowed us to further investigate the trapdoor spider’s behaviour and population dynamics,” according to a press release. A sedentary creature, the female
Gaius villosus trapdoor spider builds itself a tunnel in the ground and stays there, seldom wandering too far from its hidey-hole. Sounds pretty ideal to be honest. Some people online were confused as to how the researchers knew the spider's age. HOW DO YOU KNOW IT WAS THE OLDEST SPIDER, HAVE YOU ASKED ALL THE OTHERS THEIR AGE? t.co/b5ls7v4p31 — Christine Best (@tinajaneb33) April 28, 2018 You just have to look it up on the web. — Ryan Evans (@DoNothing69) April 30, 2018 Spider census. Every spider took it. Although apparently a few of them lied about their age to get into bars, allegedly. — matthew marsden (@matthewdmarsden) April 29, 2018 Named "Number 16" (affectionate pet-names were notably absent from the paper) the female trapdoor spider was first documented as a spiderling in 1974 by a study initiated by Barbara York Main. The study monitored individuals using tagged pegs put next to their burrows. Trapdoor spiders never re-use the disused burrow of another spider, so the researchers can be fairly confident that they were monitoring the same spider for 43 years. Number 16 probably didn't die of natural causes. On Oct. 31, 2016, the researchers found that her burrow had been pierced by a parasitic wasp. Her burrow fell into disrepair thereafter, meaning that poor Number 16 was probably eaten from the inside out by a spider wasp larva. What a way to go.

Mysterious void in Great Pyramid of Giza could finally reveal how pyramids were built

Mysterious void in Great Pyramid of Giza could finally reveal how pyramids were builtA mysterious void has been discovered in the Great Pyramid of Giza and Egyptologists believe it could finally shed light on how the ancient tombs were constructed. The enigmatic gap, which is around 100ft long is situated directly above the Grand Gallery, an elaborate access route which cuts through the pyramid. It was found using a state-of-the-art scanning process called ‘muography’ which picks up tiny cosmic particles known as muons. The Great Pyramid of Giza Muons lose energy and eventually decay when they move through matter, so if large numbers are picked by a detector it means a hole must exist, which has allowed them to pass through unimpeded. Today a team of scientists from France and Japan announced that months of scanning had shown a clear void in the pyramid, and they are hoping to drill a small hole and release a tiny flying drone to video the chasm. Pyramid void Expedition leader Mehdi Tayoubi, president of the Heritage Innovation Preservation Institute, Paris, said: "We were very surprised to see a big anomaly. We were expecting to detect the King’s chamber and grand gallery but we were surprised to find a big void and we think what we have is very important. “What we are sure if it is there, and it is impressive, It is the same height as the Statue of the Liberty. “It could be a second grand gallery, it could be a chamber. We are working with archaeologists to compare it to other chambers, The void is there, it’s very big.  It was not expected by any kind of theory. “We are thinking about sending in a very innovative robot that can get through a small hole.” The team carrying out 'muography' in the Queen's Chamber  Credit: Philippe BOURSEILLER The Great Pyramid of Giza which was built for Khufu, or Cheops, the second pharaoh of the 4th dynasty who reigned between 2589 to 2566BC. His tomb is 456ft high and 755ft wide, the largest pyramid ever built, and one of the Seven Wonders of The Ancient World. However experts are divided about how the Ancient Egyptians moved the massive stones into place, some of which weigh 80 tonnes, and which came from Aswan, more than 500 miles away. Some theories suggest elaborate cranes and pulleys, wooden rail tracks, spiral outer ramps, or even floatation chambers. The new void is 230 feet from ground level and scans suggest it may be sloped at a similar angle to the Grand Gallery below. Khufu's pyramid is more than 4,000 years old  Dr Kate Spence, Senior Lecturer in Archaeology and Egyptology at the University of Cambridge, said the incline could be the key to the purpose of the chasm, and help solve the mystery of how the Egyptians got their huge stones inside. “This finding is very exciting, but not because it is some kind of secret chamber,” she said. “I think it is an inclined ramp that was used to transport huge blocks into the centre of the pyramid and then sealed off by the builders. The orientation leads up to the huge granite roof struts at the top of the relieving chamber. “Although that might not sound as exciting as a secret burial chamber, in fact, this would be the first evidence of the use of a ramp inside, which gives us a really important insight into how those huge bricks were put into position and how pyramids were constructed.” A muon telescope set up outside the pyramid  Credit: Philippe BOURSEILLER Professor Hany Helal, of the University of Cairo, said the orientation resembles a corridor that was found hidden behind the North Face. “It’s too early to go and conclude what is this void. Was it deliberately hidden away? This structure is not accessible. This void was hidden since the construction of the pyramid. “We needed to have this new technique. A new, innovative robot that can fly, maybe "While there is currently no information about the role of this void, these findings show how modern particle physics can shed new light on the world's archaeological heritage." Jean-Baptiste Mouret of ISIR in France, said the team would be releasing details next week of a small flying robot which could fit into an inch wide hole to explore the void. Any drilling into the pyramid would require permission from the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities. Once the mystery of the void is solved, archaeologists hope to use similar technology to locate the burial place of the queen Nefertiti, the wife of King Akhenaten. Some Egyptologists think she could be buried in a secret chamber in Tutankhamun's tomb. The research was published in the journal Nature.
