Scientists Discover a Mineral Never Seen Before

Scientists Discover a Mineral Never Seen Before

Researchers from the Museums Victoria have found an unknown natural mineral, called Edscottite, in space rock. In 1951, a strange-looking space rock fell out of the sky and landed near the Australian gold rush town, Wedderburn. The town was a hotspot for prospectors, but this was much more than a nugget. For decades, scientists have…

Warning! Ice Sheets of Greenland are Releasing Tons of Methane into the Atmosphere

Warning! Ice Sheets of Greenland are Releasing Tons of Methane into the Atmosphere

An international team of researchers discovers that the Greenland Ice Sheet is doing some serious damage to the environment. Methane is the simplest alkane with four atoms of Hydrogen surrounding a central atom of Carbon. It is one of the important greenhouse gases and plays a significant role in causing ‘Global Warming’. According to an…

White Dwarf Stars are Turning into Crystals

White Dwarf Stars are Turning into Crystals

Astronomers from the University of Warwick have found direct evidence suggesting that the white dwarf stars are solidifying into crystals. A white dwarf star in a dense stellar core remnant, which is mostly made up of electron-degenerate matter. All the luminosity of these stars come from the stored thermal energy as there is absolutely no…

Chinese Researchers Reveal that Poor Air Quality is Linked to Autism Spectrum Disorder

Chinese Researchers Reveal that Poor Air Quality is Linked to Autism Spectrum Disorder

Pollutants in the air can hamper the neurological development of kids during their early years. Air pollution is one of the most massive issues in the modern world. It refers to a state where excessive quantities of harmful substances including gases, biological molecules, and particulates are added to the Earth’s atmosphere. A pollutant can come…

African Agricultural Fires will help NASA to Study Smoke-Cloud Interaction

African Agricultural Fires will help NASA to Study Smoke-Cloud Interaction

Scientists found some unexpected new features during an analysis of the African Smoke-Cloud connection. Smoke is an airborne mixture of solid and liquid particles and gases, which is emitted when the combustion of a material takes place. It also carries the quantity of air that is mixed into the mass. The chemical composition of smoke…

The Increase in Earth’s Oxygen was Gradual

The Increase in Earth’s Oxygen was Gradual

A recent study supports the idea that the Oxygen levels of Earth rose in a stepwise fashion. The existence of gaseous Oxygen is one of the most vital factors, which allow colonization of the Earth. Its importance can be judged by the fact that astronomers looking for signs of life in different parts of the…

Life is quite possible on Water Worlds

Life is quite possible on Water Worlds

The conditions for life surviving on planets, entirely covered in water, are more fluid than previously thought, opening up the possibility that water worlds could be habitable. Scientists thought that planets covered in a deep ocean would not support life assuming the absence of cycling of the minerals and gases keeping Earth’s climate stable. A…

The Building Blocks of the Earth are Pretty Normal

The Building Blocks of the Earth are Pretty Normal

The probability of finding Earth-like planets in the Milky Way got a massive boost. Scientists are quite keen, these days, to find signs of life in other parts of the universe. Several missions have been sent to our neighboring planet, Mars, in this regard to gather maximum information about the red planet of our solar…

The Study of Ultrahot Planets is leading to some Strange Discoveries

The Study of Ultrahot Planets is leading to some Strange Discoveries

Current observations of ultra-hot planets by NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes mystifies theorists. The planetary spectra suggest unusual compositions. A team of researchers from the Arizona State University explained in their recently published study that the gas-rich planets have basically normal compositions when we are relying on the known planet formation. The difference is…

Protons Greatly Influence the Properties of the Neutron Stars

Protons Greatly Influence the Properties of the Neutron Stars

The findings of CLAS Collaboration might alter the understanding of people about neutron stars. It is quite obvious from their name that neutron stars are comprised primarily of the neutral subatomic particles known as the neutrons. Due to this reason, it was assumed that most of the properties of the neutron stars are influenced by…

Carbon-Focused Conservation might fail to Save Several Species of Tropical Forests

Carbon-Focused Conservation might fail to Save Several Species of Tropical Forests

In order to save biodiversity in tropical forests, we will need to devise a compromising approach where carbon and species of these forests are protected together. Human activity has brought drastic changes to the climate of our planet. A lot of species have been wiped away from the surface of the Earth and things are…

Conditions that make us believe that Universe is Flowing in Reverse

A Quantum Experiment shows the world how time can be made to go backward. Quantum physics and Classical Physics seem to be at loggerheads. While one dismisses one fact, the other readily accepts it and surmises it to be true. In the quantum world, unlike in Classical Physics, particles can go through solid walls, be…
