    If finned swimming animals evolved in an ocean on an alien world, what would they look like? Quite possibly a lot like the ones on Earth, a team of researchers says. A new study that examined certain swimming species' motion in the ocean found a surprising and elegant ratio embedded in the way they move. This ratio, described in the journal PLOS Biology, reveals a surprising case of convergent evolution over a diverse array of unrelated animals — and could help engineers build better swimming robots. Previous work has found that there are striking similarities in the way animals move through fluids (whether water or air).

    ST. LOUIS — Eighteen black women who were told decades ago that their babies had died soon after birth at a St. Louis hospital now wonder if the infants were taken away by hospital officials to be raised by other families. The suspicions arose from the story of Zella Jackson Price, who said she was 26 in 1965 when she gave birth at Homer G. Phillips Hospital in St. Louis. Hours later, she was told that her daughter had died, but she never saw a body or a death certificate. No one is sure who was responsible, but Price's daughter ended up in foster care, only to resurface almost 50 years later. Melanie Gilmore, who now lives in Eugene, Ore.

    Paleontologists have unearthed a strange new species of dinosaur that is unlike anything they have seen before. The newly described Chilesaurus diegosuarezi was an ostrich-size dinosaur that walked upright like a Tyrannosaurus rex but had the teeth of a more primitive long-necked plant eater. “The interesting thing about this dinosaur is that different parts of it look very similar to unrelated dinosaurs,” said Martin Ezcurra, a researcher at the University of Birmingham, England, who helped describe the animal in the journal Nature. “It is like a combination of different dinosaurs in a single species.
