Comment on Your suggestions for discussion by Magdalena Wyatt https://drmolecule.org/suggestionsfordiscussion/comment-page-1/#comment-236 Wed, 06 Mar 2013 10:51:09 +0000 http://drmolecule.org/?page_id=60#comment-236 I was told at school, some time ago, that Neanderthals has 36 teeth, compare to us who have 32. Is that true? If so, are the missing wisdom teeth in some people sign of the evolution? Does that mean those people are on the next step of the tree fo life, eg Homo sapiens sapiens sapiens.

Comment on #organellewars – a fun school project in cell biology by Campaign season! For organelles? | Transient Interactions https://drmolecule.org/2012/10/23/organellewars-a-fun-school-project-in-cell-biology/comment-page-1/#comment-72 Wed, 31 Oct 2012 13:48:20 +0000 http://drmolecule.org/?p=482#comment-72 […] Then something happened that Brad Graba did not intend, I think. Alerted by Anne (who posted a great early intro), scientists began joining in under the hashtag #organellewars. (If you're unfamiliar with Twitter, a hashtag is simply a handle for tagging and finding related messages.) Before long, organelles were discussing their functions and failures with scientists around the world. The project was even mentioned on BBC Radio! […]

Comment on Whales committing suicide en masse… why? by Dr Molecule https://drmolecule.org/2012/09/10/whales-committing-suicide-en-masse-why/comment-page-1/#comment-48 Tue, 11 Sep 2012 08:08:43 +0000 http://drmolecule.org/?p=430#comment-48 I can think of evolutionary arguments that would go either way on this issue. Does lower acoustic sensitivity mean that a whale is more sensitive to water depth changes than others might be? We don’t know. The fact that up to dozens of whales ina pod will strand themselves at one time suggests that stranding isn’t strongly correlated with individual fitness anyway.

Comment on Curiosity goes for a spin on Mars by subliminal mind https://drmolecule.org/2012/08/07/curiosity-goes-for-a-spin-on-mars/comment-page-1/#comment-35 Sun, 02 Sep 2012 09:02:17 +0000 http://drmolecule.org/?p=310#comment-35 I am very excited to see if they can find traces of life in ice formation on Mars. Something a little off topic I would like to say. If Google can use a satellite to do Google Earth, why cant they do Google Moon and Google Stars too? Wouldnt it just be interesting to sit around and watch space if nothing else? Just a thought I had the other day!
