  • Remember 'The Dress'? It Looked Different to Night Owls & Early Birds

    "The dress" that went viral in 2015 caused a lot of confusion, with some people perceiving the garment as white and gold and others seeing it as black and blue. Now, researchers have found that these differences in perception may be rooted in the fast assumptions that people's brains made about how the dress was illuminated, according to a new study. The people who saw the dress as white and gold probably assumed that it was photographed in a shadow, while those who saw the clothing as black and blue likely assumed it was illuminated by artificial light, found Pascal Wallisch, a neuroscientist at New York University.

  • Hundreds of Meltwater Streams Found Flowing Across Antarctica

    Huge swaths of Antarctica are awash in draining meltwater during the summer months, the first-ever continent-wide survey of meltwater shows. Although past studies revealed that portions of Antarctica's Western Peninsula were melting at an alarming rate, most scientists believed the rest of the continent did not face extensive melting during Antarctica's ephemeral summer months. "This is not in the future — this is widespread now, and has been for decades," lead author Jonathan Kingslake, a glaciologist at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, said in a statement.
