VEM is the Modern Fire Extinguisher for Space

VEM is the Modern Fire Extinguisher for Space

Researchers from the Toyohashi University of Technology has come up with a new technique, called Vacuum Extinguish Method (VEM), for a novel fire extinguisher in space. The basic idea of VEM is completely opposite to what we get with standard fire extinguishers, which spray different extinguishing agents into the firing point. It uses a vacuum…

Oceans are Warming Even Faster than Previous Estimates

Oceans are Warming Even Faster than Previous Estimates

Four different studies reveal that greenhouse gases are raising temperatures of oceans at a much rapid rate than previously believed. Ocean Heating is a critical marker of climate change because most of the excessive solar energy absorbed by the greenhouse gases is accumulated in oceans. In addition to that, ocean temperatures don’t experience year-to-year variations…

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…

Scientists Reveal Updated Climate Models for the Planets around TRAPPIST-1

Scientists Reveal Updated Climate Models for the Planets around TRAPPIST-1

Researchers propose that TRAPPIST-1e resembles Earth the most and it has an Oxygen-rich atmosphere to go with it. TRAPPIST-1 is a small, cool dwarf star located 39 light years or 235 trillion miles from our Sun. It is orbited by seven terrestrial (Earth-like) planets. These planets are temperate, which means the conditions there allow water…

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…
