A long history of flowing water recorded in clay-bearing sediments on Mars

According to a new paper by Planetary Science Institute Senior Scientist Catherine Weitz, a region on Mars may have been repeatedly habitable until relatively late in Martian history. The Margaritifer Terra region, where deposits of clay-bearing sediments have been identified, contains some of the most...

Scientists discover method to create upward water fountain in deep water

University of Houston engineers have discovered that they can create upward fountains in water by shining laser beams on the water's surface. Scientists attribute the finding to a phenomenon called Marangoni effect. This causes convection and explains the behavior of water when differences in...

Wide bubble surrounding Earth is source of all young stars

Center for Astrophysics, Harvard & Smithsonian and Space Telescope Science Institute researchers have reconstructed the evolutionary history of our galactic neighborhood. They have showed that how a chain of events beginning 14 million years ago caused the creation of a vast bubble. This bubble...

Anthropogenic aerosols have a significant role on surface temperature

The warming effect of anthropogenic aerosol reduction will superimpose on the cooling effect caused by the reduction of CO2. A new study has found this. This will lead to a great surface temperature increase. Temperature reduction and cooling rate will be delayed because of...
