Tube-dwelling worms found at the seafloor have been found to act as a methane sink, getting nutrients from bacteria that use the gas as a source of energy. Researchers discovered the worms have an unusual symbiotic relationship with the bacteria, allowing it to cling to their skin and burrow into its tissues.

In 1994, archeologists digging in the Atapuerca Mountains in southern Spain discovered the fossilized remains of an archaic group of humans unlike any other ever seen. The bones were cut and fractured, and appeared to have been cannibalized. The largest skeletal fragments — which came from at least six individuals and dated to at least 800,000 years ago — shared some similarities with modern humans (Homo sapiens), plus other now-extinct human relatives like Neanderthals and Denisovans, but were just different enough to defy classification as any known species.
