Photo of the “Llullaillaco Maiden”, a 15 year old girl sacrificed during the Inca Empire for both purposes of religious rite and social control. She was chosen a year prior to her death, fed a ritualistic diet for an approximate twelve months to make her gain weight, then was drugged and left on the shrine at Volcano Llullaillaco, where she was left to die of exposure. For five hundred years, her body had been preserved at 82 ft. She is considered to be the best preserved Andean mummy uncovered.

500 year old, nearly perfectly preserved Incan girl
Photo of the Llullaillaco Maiden, a 15 year old girl sacrificed during the Inca Empire 500 years ago for purposes of religious rite and social control. She was chosen a year prior to her death, fed a ritualistic diet for 12 months to make her gain weight, drugged and left at Volcano Llullaillaco, where she was left to die of exposure. Unearthed in 1999 from the 22,000-foot summit, her frozen body was among the best preserved mummies ever found with internal organs intact and blood still present.

The excavation of the ancient city of Zeugma, near the town of Nizip in Gaziantep Province, has uncovered some remnants of sculptures, coins, mosaics and more. Most of this year’s work took place on a hill known as Belkıs Tepe. “We found some parts of cult-related sculptures on Belkıs Tepe. … Many remnants of sculptures were unearthed,” Görkay said.

Thylacosmilus - extinct South American sparassodont, related to marsupials, the size of a jaguar.
Known as Thylacosmilus atrox, this animal looked and behaved like nothing alive today. Its closest living relatives are the Australian and American marsupials. Thylacosmilus atrox had larger teeth proportionally to its body in comparison with saber-tooth tiger Smilodon fatalis, making it one of the more interesting saber-toothed animals to study. These animals were separated by at least 125 million years of evolution.

Look at Earth from outer space...
NASA releases new photo of Saturn, Earth NASA has given the people of Earth a rare treat: A color mosaic that captures not only Saturn, but also the tiny dots of Earth and other planets in the background. The panorama, released Tuesday, was captured by the Cassini spacecraft on July 19, when the sun slipped behind the ringed planet. Earth appears as a bright blue dot to Saturn's lower right, just above Saturn's outer, halo-like E-ring. Click to see all 8 pics.
Dust reveals ancient origin for Saturn's rings. New data from the Cassini spacecraft suggests rings were formed 4.4 billion years ago - making the rings 3x to 10x older than previously thought. Learn more here: http://buff.ly/1pOgdFU
Nasa's Cassini probe is going to try to take a special picture of Planet Earth. The spacecraft will include our home world when it makes a giant mosaic of Saturn and its ring system. In the Friday 19 July portrait, Earth will be almost a billion miles in the distance - a mere pixel in size.

A trail of footprints probably left by Australopithecus afarensis individuals some 3.5 million years ago, at Laetoli, northern Tanzania.

TANZANIA:!A trail of footprints probably left by Australopithecus afarensis individuals some 3.5 million years ago, at Laetoli, northern Tanzania.
3.6 million years ago in Laetoli, Tanzania, two early humans walked through wet volcanic ash. When the nearby volcano erupted again, subsequent layers of ash covered and preserved the oldest known footprints of early humans.
Australopithecus afarensis footprints "Laetoli Footprints" First good evidence of upright walking. One appears to be pregnant...

The Burgess Shale in British Columbia contains very old (~550 million years ago), very rare fossils of very early organisms. This is Haplophrentis. The function of the pair of short spines is unknown but the creature was tiny, just a few centimeters in length (hint 2.5 cm = 1 inch, more or less).
