Can air pollution help us find alien life?

To find alien life in our universe, scientists have considered searches for optical lasers or even giant energy-harvesting structures known as Dyson spheres. Now they’re suggesting a more mundane sort of search, a hunt for air pollution in exoplanet atmospheres.

Watch a Billion Years of Shifting Tectonic Plates Forming Our Continents in 40 Seconds

One billion years of Earth’s geological movements have been summarized in a 40-second video, in which the continents and oceans flit about like amorous butterflies while demonstrating just how mobile the surface of the Earth actually is. The history of plate tectonics, the slipping and sliding around of the Earth’s crust and the continents, has […]

Theory throws hot water on CO2 global warming ‘con’ – Morning Bulletin

In 2017 I created the mosaic of M&Ms pictured above to represent the relationship between the atmosphere and CO2. After photographing it, I ate it. Each of the M&Ms in the brown box represent 400ppm of the atmosphere. The enlarged…

What’s the weather like on Titan?

Most of the planets in our solar system have some sort of atmosphere and many have dynamic weather systems. But only one moon in the solar system, Saturn’s large moon Titan, can say the same.

Scientists identify flank instability at a volcano with history of collapse

Landslides caused by the collapse of unstable volcanoes are one of the major dangers of volcanic eruptions. A method to detect long-term movements of these mountains using satellite images could help identify previously overlooked instability at some volcanoes, according to scientists.

Wet and wild: There’s lots of water in the world’s most explosive volcano

(Washington University in St. Louis) Conditions inside the Shiveluch volcano include roughly 10%-14% water by weight (wt%), according to research from Washington University in St. Louis. Most volcanoes have less than 1% water. For subduction zone volcanoes, the average is usually 4%, rarely exceeding 8 wt%, which is considered superhydrous.

NASA “mole’s” attempts to dig into Mars failed. What’s next?

The mission team for NASA’s InSight lander called off its attempts to try to dig deeper into Mars with the heat probe known as “the mole.” Meanwhile, the rest of the mission gained an extension to December 2022.
