NASA finds evidence of recent flowing water on Mars
USA Today
A NASA spacecraft circling Mars has found evidence of flowing water on the Red Planet's surface — and in our time, not in some dim and more verdant past. New data reveal that Earth's close neighbor boasts multiple seeps of salt-laden water that were wet, or at least damp, as recently as last year. The water may be many times saltier than Earth's ocean, but there could be enough of it to provide a bonanza for humans exploring the surface.

Catching tsunamis in the geological record
Forbes
Modern databases list more than 2.000 tsunamis worldwide that occurred in the last 4.000 years. Most of these were recorded in historic documents, chronicles or even myths. Records of tsunamis in the geological record, however, seem to be rare. But they do exist, and they can help scientists learn more about them and their history.

Fossils: Is this new species a human relative?
Society for Science & the Public
Fossils found in an underground cave in South Africa may be from a previously unknown species of the human genus, Homo. The fossils come from at least 15 individuals. They were pulled from a pit 30 meters (100 feet) deep. The skeletal remains display a mix of traits. They are unlike anything researchers had seen before. The bones and teeth have some features that are similar to humans. But the fossils also have some apelike qualities.

Map reveals ghostly antineutrinos lurking within Earth
Live Science
A look inside of Earth has revealed the hiding places of weird antimatter particles that are nearly massless, resulting in a global map of the planet's so-called antineutrinos. Antineutrinos are the antimatter versions of neutrinos, particles so light and insubstantial that they rarely interact with matter. They can pass through a light-year of solid lead and still have a 50-50 chance of sailing through as if it wasn't there.

Comprehensive online resource launched to improve freshwater management
Phys.org
While numerous EU-funded freshwater management projects have generated websites, tools and databases, many of these have not been maintained after project completion. Moreover, information and results tend to be dispersed across several project websites, which can prove challenging to researchers, managers and policy makers looking for an overview of the current situation.
