Because of differences in gravity, the weight of an object (as compared to the mass of objects on Earth), which is the surface of Planet also vary. For example if your weight is 70 kg on Earth, then on other planets in the solar system your weight will be different.

Your weight on other planets (in our solar system) will differ depending on the density or density of a planet that affects the strength of gravity. Then, In which planet your weight will be the lightest?

The answer was on Mars. Why Mars? Maybe you will think why not in Mercury which has a size smaller than Mars? Not the size of the planet, because Mercury has a density greater than Mars so that its gravity is larger than Mars.

If your weight is 70 kg on Earth, then your weight on Mars around 26,39 kg and 26.46 kg on Mercury, then will be about 165,2 kg on Jupiter. In conclusion, the more massive a planet, the greater its gravity and your weight becomes larger. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ]

Ancient lizards found in Brazil is allegedly as the Missing link

The missing link in the evolution of lizard has been discovered in Brazil. Paleontologists from the University of Alberta discovered fossil 80 million year old lizard associated more closely with chameleons and lizards beard, lizard found in Africa and Asia, rather than 1,700 species of iguanas found in South and Central America.
University of Alberta paleontologists have discovered a new species of lizard, named Gueragama sulamericana, in the municipality of Cruzeiro do Oeste in Southern Brazil in the rock outcrops of a Late Cretaceous desert, dated approximately 80 million years ago.

The lizards are found in Africa and Asia are the acrodontan lizards, meaning they fused with the teeth in the upper jaw. The American iguana teeth, and their immediate families, are not like that.

The new specimen is the first acrodontan iguana found in South America. Michael Caldwell, one of the authors of the study, said the fossil was "good evidence to show that at the end (period) Cretaceous, the southern part of Pangaea is a large part of the continent."

Supercontinent Pangaea began to break into the continents we know today about 175 million years ago, when the land apart and so are plants and animals that live there. Thousands of years later, the animals evolve into new species.

The study, published in Nature Communications, concluded "after separate, the acrodontan lizards and chameleons groups dominate Asia and Africa, and iguana lineage emerge from this acrodontan left alone in South America."

"These findings answer some questions about iguanas and their origin," said Caldwell. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | VOA NEWS]
