Another Gulf storm? Hurricane center says there's a low chance

Another Gulf storm? Hurricane center says there's a low chance The hurricane is moving north-west at about 10mph - a course it is expected to take until mid-week, the NHC said. Some additional strengthening is possible today but a slow weakening should begin tomorrow.

System with three Earth-sized planets discovered

System with three Earth-sized planets discovered It is seven times closer to the star as compared to the distance between the Earth and the Sun. Ahmedabad, have discovered an exoplanet that is larger than Neptune but smaller than Saturn. The PARAS reads the entire electromagnetic spectrum from microwave to infrared radiation which allows the scientists to read the composition of the planet, surface temperature, and the nature of the atmosp...

Help the ocean by changing habits with single-use plastic items

Help the ocean by changing habits with single-use plastic items Going forward, we must promote sustainable use of oceans. Plastic pollution is causing tremendous harm to our marine resources. And in fact the key, the good message, is that we've put forward the idea that the state of the ocean is not as bad as may be reflected in the mass media, and the options to recover the ocean to a healthy state are far better than we now think, and we can rebuild and ...

Curiosity : Nasa reveals what its rover has discovered on Mars !

Curiosity : Nasa reveals what its rover has discovered on Mars ! Earlier research has led scientists to believe that liquid water pooled on the ancient surface of Mars , meaning that Earth's planetary neighbor had some very similar ingredients for life billions of years ago. "What this new study is showing in some detail is the discovery of complex and diverse organic compounds in the sediments". " Are there signs of life on Mars ? " said Michael Meyer, l...

Season's 1st tropical storm forms in eastern Pacific

Season's 1st tropical storm forms in eastern Pacific The unusually slow-moving Hurricane Harvey was a recent example. Slowdowns over land were higher in some regions (a 20 percent slowdown over land for Atlantic storms, a 30 percent slowdown over land for western North Pacific storms and a 19 percent slowdown over land for storms affecting the Australian region).

NASA's Juno spacecraft solves the mystery behind Jupiter's lightning storms

NASA's Juno spacecraft solves the mystery behind Jupiter's lightning storms Now, however, Juno can hear the signals the others missed, and that means the lightning on Jupiter is actually a lot like our own... but not exactly the same. They think that, because Jupiter's atmosphere is stable near its equator thanks to warmth from the Sun, the lightning is forming in the much less stable air rising near its poles from within the planet.

Oldest fossil footprints on Earth discovered in China

This new discovery is not providing scientists with all the needed information, so for now we can not really determine what type of animal the footprints might have belonged to. That's largely because Ediacaran life hadn't yet evolved the kinds of hard bones and shells that fossilize easily, so scientists usually have to rely on trace fossils instead - burrows, tracks and other secondary evidence ...

What has NASA’s Curiosity rover uncovered on Mars?

NASA has scheduled a live discussion for 2 p.m. ET focusing on "new science results" from the rover , although the nature of what has been found remains to be seen as no details will be made public before then. Meanwhile, the delivery of sample into the rover's chemistry lab is also slated to occur in a few days. Late last month, the rover used it's newly function drill to collect rock sampl...
