World's First Carbon-Negative Concrete

A startup called CarbiCrete has been developing one promising solution: carbon-negative concrete.If a typical plant adopts its technology - 20,000 tons of CO2 abated and 4,400 cubic meters of water saved.

Curiosity rover discovers water-rich fracture halos on Mars

A recent study finds that the vast subsurface fracture networks in Gale crater would have provided water-rich and radiation-shielded conditions that were potentially more habitable than those on the surface.

Hubble finds that ghost light among galaxies stretches far back in time

In giant clusters of hundreds or thousands of galaxies, innumerable stars wander among the galaxies like lost souls, emitting a ghostly haze of light. These stars are not gravitationally tied to any one galaxy in a cluster.

Two alien water worlds with oceans 500 times deeper than Earth's

Two exoplanets – Kepler-138 c and Kepler-138 d – appear to have oceans at least 1,600 km deep. That’s about 500 times deeper than the average depth of Earth’s oceans. However, they could be much warmer and under very high pressure.

Daycares in Finland Built a 'Forest', And It Changed Kids' Immune Systems
