How did plate tectonics start on Earth?
Our planet Earth is the only planet in the Solar System that possesses Plate Tectonics. The Earth's surface is in a constant state of change; the tectonic plates together with the oceans and continents continuously slide along one another, collide or sink into the Earth's mantle. View News Article (2015-11-12)

Plate tectonics thanks to plumes?

Hot, dense material surrounds O-type star with largest magnetic field known
Observations using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory revealed that the unusually large magnetosphere around an O-type star called NGC 1624-2 contains a raging storm of extreme stellar winds and dense plasma that gobbles up X-rays before they can escape into space.  View News Article (2015-09-23)

Inspired by venus flytrap, researchers develop folding 'snap' geometry
Inspired by natural "snapping" systems like Venus flytrap leaves and hummingbird beaks, a team led by physicist Christian Santangelo at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has developed a way to use curved creases to give thin curved shells a fast, programmable snapping motion. View News Article (2015-08-24)

NASA simulation indicates ancient flood volcanoes could have altered climate
In June, 1991, Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines exploded, blasting millions of tons of ash and gas over 20 miles high - deep into the stratosphere, a stable layer of our atmosphere above most of the clouds and weather.  View News Article (2015-08-10)

Study suggests active volcanism on Venus
An international team of scientists has found some of the best evidence yet that Venus, Earth's nearest neighbor, is volcanically active. View News Article (2015-06-19)

NASA study finds small solar eruptions can have profound effects on unprotected planets
While no one yet knows what's needed to build a habitable planet, it's clear that the interplay between the sun and Earth is crucial for making our planet livable - a balance between a sun that provides energy and a planet that can protect itself from the harshest solar emissions. View News Article (2015-04-10)
