The fearsome Tyrannosaurs Rex could bite down with nearly ​8,000 pounds of force, almost twice as strong as the bite of the Australian salt water crocodile. That's just some of the findings from a Florida researcher who teamed up with a paleontologist in Oklahoma to model and test the bite of T. rex.

An underwater archaeology site on the bed of the Silver River, in the Silver Springs State Park near Ocala, is home to mammoth bones and other ancient remains dating back 10,000 years ago. First discovered in the 1970s, the history these discoveries revealed were dismissed at the time due to the perceived inaccuracy of underwater archaeology. This summer, a team of archeologists are diving there to "set the record straight."

About half of a household's water is used to water lawns, according to estimates from the Environmental Protection Agency. A new study from Florida Atlantic University found an effective way to cut that water use by as much as 60 percent: a simple sign telling residents how much rainfall was already providing the roughly inch-per-week of water their lawns need.

An international crew of "aquanauts" just returned from a NASA mission right here on Earth. The spent ten days living at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, conducting experiments and simulating space walks off Florida's coast, as part of research efforts the agency says will prepare astronauts living and working in space and even with a manned mission to Mars.

A University of South Florida professor is preparing to go to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean as part of a NASA mission.

Dominic D'Agostino, who studies how extreme environments affect the human body, is one of four crew members - and the only non NASA or European Space Agency member.
