  • Remains are identified as belonging to 15th-century English king
    Skeletal remains found under a parking lot in England have been proven "beyond reasonable doubt" as belonging to King Richard III, who died in battle in 1485 and was later depicted in a Shakespeare play. Lead archaeologist Richard Buckley announced today that the bones were "indeed Richard III, the last Plantagenet king of England." DNA samples connected the remains to the monarch's descendants, and wounds found on the skull are consistent with battle accounts.

  • Researcher clarifies 150-year-old stellar mystery
    New research has debunked astronomer John Herschel's claim that an 1866 supernova was a recurrent stellar explosion. Bradley Schaefer of Louisiana State University used old records and charts to conclude that Herschel's observations in 1842 were actually that of the star BD+25°3020, and not the T Coronae Borealis supernova that Herschel believed he saw.
