Volcanic activity did not play a direct role in the mass extinction event that killed the dinosaurs, according to an international team of researchers. It was all about the asteroid.
In 2018, a large number of seismic alerts had been detected everywhere. They created a weird buzzing sound. Now the mysterious hum is identified as rumblings of a magma-filled reservoir deep under the Indian ocean where the new volcano is forming.
We get excited when we detect water on another world, which so far hasn’t happened often. But this study shows that the presence of water, though tantalizing and worth pursuing scientifically, guarantees nothing.
The satellite called Icon, or Ionospheric Connection Explorer, will transmit data intended to help scientists understand the physical processes at work where Earth's atmosphere interacts with near-Earth space.
Largest documented asteroid breakup in the asteroid belt during the past two billion years caused enormous amounts of dust to spread through the solar system. The blocking effect of this dust lead to cooler temperatures which in turn caused diversification.
New research by a team of UK scientists has located the site of the massive impact that took place in Scotland 1.2 billion years ago. Roughly one billion years ago, Earth experienced a higher rate of meteorite impact than it does today.
There are at least 34,000 pieces of large debris in Low Earth Orbit. Now spanish scientists has come up with a simple but elegant idea: equip future satellites with a tether system so they can de-orbit themselves at the end of their lives.
A mysterious large mass of material has been discovered beneath the largest crater in our solar system - the Moon's South Pole - Aitken basin and may contain metal from the asteroid that crashed into the Moon and formed the crater.
Large parts of Asian Russia could become habitable by the late 21st century due to climate change, new research has found. Scientists used current and predicted climate scenarios to examine the climate comfort of Asian Russia.
The European Very Large Telescope participated in test coordinated by the International Asteroid Warning Network, successfully targeting, tracking and imaging a double asteroid as it flew within 5.2 million km of Earth on 25 May.
Thanks to the international researchers, a baby submarine volcano roughly 2,630 feet high and as wide as 3 miles has been spotted 2 miles beneath the waves of the Indian ocean.
