2 Mysteries That May Have Been Solved
Which Came First, the Chicken or the Egg?
In 2010, British scientists concluded that, “a protein found only in a chicken’s ovaries is necessary for the formation of the egg, according to the paper Wednesday. The egg can therefore only exist if it has been created inside a chicken.” Celebrated physicist Stephen Hawking, however, isn’t so sure.
What happened to Amelia Earhart?
Researchers found bone fragments, a mirror from a woman’s compact and a zipper from a flight jacket on a deserted South Pacific island in 2007. All of these items were from the 1930s and made in the United States. They also found the remains of a campsite. These discoveries have led researchers to believe that Earhart and her flight partner lived as castaways before ultimately perishing. When the bone fragments were tested, however, the results were inconclusive.
