Earth responds to CO2 faster TPT

"Earth Recovered from Prehistoric Global Warming Faster Than Previously Thought"

'Recovered' is a loaded term. Some people like warm weather. The Ice Ages were a difficult time.

FTA: When faced with high levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and rising temperatures 56 million years ago, Earth increased its ability to pull carbon from the air. This led to a recovery that was quicker than anticipated by many models of the carbon cycle...

Proton and Antiproton DTE

the products of the collision between a proton and its antimatter partner, the antiproton, were different than expected.

"This is huge — an unexpected discovery which could completely transform high-energy physics, and cosmology as well, as the two fields are joined at the hip," astrophysicist Michael S. Turner, director of the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at The University of Chicago, wrote in an email to LiveScience. "But there is one big IF — if it holds up and is not explained by standard model physics."

and of course, the 'more research is needed' statement:

"...a lot more work has to be done before this can be accepted as a fact."
