Ancient Star Found, DNA Research Off Ground

As regular readers will know, the Greenygrey awoke on the north-west of North America coast in 2008, not knowing its origins. It thought it’d been around for quite a while, but a new discovery suggests it could have been around since the beginning of the universe.

Hi, it’s Stephen Wolfing, satirical comedy science correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by renowned astronomer Stephen Hawking.

Yes, there’s an exciting new discovery for greenygreyologists searching for the origins of the greenygrey.

The sparkonit blog reports that astronomers think they’ve found the earliest star after the Big Bang yet: ‘The star, designated SMSS J031300.36−670839.3, is believed to have formed some hundred million years after the Big-Bang.’

Moreover, the accompanying image suggests the building blocks of the Greenygrey were already active then:

DNA Gene Research

In another exciting development for Greenygreyology sparkonit reports that  ‘research at the University of California – Davis has proved that the new genes come from the non-coding regions of the DNA.’

Up until now, geneticists had been unaware of the mechanism by which new genes appear in a species.

This could lead to the Greenygrey
finally learning its complete DNA:
