Emperor Penguins Relocate with Changing Temperatures

Emperor Penguins Relocate with Changing Temperatures

Scientists have reported in the past that emperor penguins return to the same location every year to make a nest. But a new research team from University of Minnesota (UM) has found evidence of penguins shifting their place.

The research team suggests that emperor penguins might be shifting their place due to global warming. The phenomenon also suggests that penguins are adapting well to the change in weather patterns. Also, the flightless birds are shifting their nesting place as an impact of melting ice sheets and changing environment.

Researchers find Evidence in Support of Inflation Theory Proposed by Alan Guth

Researchers from University of Minnesota, Harvard, Stanford, and Caltech have given evidence for the inflation theory, which was predicted by American physicist Alan Guth in 1980. Alan termed the theory of inflation as the ‘bang’ of the Big Bang, which was left unproved by scientists at that time. According to the theory, the initial expansion of the universe was caused by a repulsive form of gravity.
