Scientists cast doubt on theory of what triggered Antarctic glaciation
A team of U.S. and U.K. scientists has found geologic evidence that casts doubt on one of the conventional explanations for how Antarctica's ice sheet began forming. View News Article (2013-07-12)


Really Hot Stars
Spectacular VLT Photos Unveil Mysterious Nebulae Quite a few of the most beautiful objects in the Universe are still shrouded in mystery. Even though most of the nebulae of gas and dust in our vicinity are now rather well understood, there are some which continue to puzzle astronomers. This is the case of a small number of unusual nebulae that appear to be the subject of strong heating - in... View News Article (2003-04-09)


More rain, less snow leads to faster Arctic ice melt
Rising air temperatures in the Arctic region have led to an increase in rainfall and a decrease in snowfall, making the sea ice more susceptible to melting, a new study has revealed. View News Article (2011-07-05)


Finding trapped miners
University of Utah scientists devised a new way to find miners trapped by cave-ins. The method involves installing iron plates and sledgehammers at regular intervals inside mines, and sensitive listening devices on the ground overhead. View News Article (2009-03-26)


Model Suggests Ocean Currents Shape Europa's Icy Shell in Ways Critical for Potential Habitats
In a finding of relevance to the search for life in our solar system, researchers at The University of Texas at Austin's Institute for Geophysics, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research have shown that the subsurface ocean on Jupiter's moon Europa may have deep currents and circulation patterns with heat and energy transfers capable of...
