"Scientists say an entirely separate type of human identified from bones in Siberia co-existed and interbred with our own species.
The ancient humans have been dubbed Denisovans after the caves in Siberia where their remains were found."

Wow. This is, as Mr. Spok would say, fascinating. I wonder what it would have been like if there were two different sentient species on Earth. No, it would never happen. We'd kill off the other one.
