A new small-bodied hominin from the Late Pleistocene of Flores, Indonesia
Currently, it is widely accepted that only one hominin genus, Homo, was present in Pleistocene Asia, represented by two species, Homo erectus and Homo sapiens. Both species are characterized byExpand

The association of GRB 060218 with a supernova and the evolution of the shock wave
Although the link between long γ-ray bursts (GRBs) and supernovae has been established, hitherto there have been no observations of the beginning of a supernova explosion and its intimate link to aExpand

The flux of small near-Earth objects colliding with the Earth
Asteroids with diameters smaller than ∼50–100 m that collide with the Earth usually do not hit the ground as a single body; rather, they detonate in the atmosphere. These small objects can stillExpand

An extremely luminous X-ray outburst at the birth of a supernova
Massive stars end their short lives in spectacular explosions—supernovae—that synthesize new elements and drive galaxy evolution. Historically, supernovae were discovered mainly through theirExpand

Further evidence for small-bodied hominins from the Late Pleistocene of Flores, Indonesia
Homo floresiensis was recovered from Late Pleistocene deposits on the island of Flores in eastern Indonesia, but has the stature, limb proportions and endocranial volume of African PlioceneExpand

Meteoritic dust from the atmospheric disintegration of a large meteoroid
Much of the mass of most meteoroids entering the Earth's atmosphere is consumed in the process of ablation. Larger meteoroids (> 10 cm), which in some cases reach the ground as meteorites, typicallyExpand

The orbit and atmospheric trajectory of the Peekskill meteorite from video records
ON 9 October 1992, a bright fireball appeared over West Virginia, travelled some 700 km in a northeasterly direction, and culminated in at least one impact: a 12.4-kg ordinary chondrite was recoveredExpand

Infrasonic Observations of Meteoroids: Preliminary Results from a Coordinated Optical-radar-infrasound Observing Campaign
Recent observations using the newly installed Elginfield infrasound array in coordination with the Southern Ontario all-sky meteor camera network and Canadian Meteor Orbit Radar (CMOR) has shown thatExpand

Reanalysis of the Historic AFTAC Bolide Infrasound Database
We have recently digitized and partially reanalyzed the historic bolide infrasonic database. These 10 events were originally detected by the U.S. Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC) fromExpand
