The Quest To Seek Out 52 Hertz AKA "World's Loneliest Whale"

For over two decades, marine biologists have been listening to the songs from a whale that resides in the North Pacific. However, they have never heard a fellow mammal responding. That's because, unlike most whales that croon at a frequency of 15-20 hertz, this one sings at high pitched 52 hertz.

X-Ray Technique Allows Researchers To Read Scorched Herculaneum Scrolls

When Italy's Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, it buried not only the city of Pompeii, but also the nearby resort town of Herculaneum.
