Overflowing lakes carved canyons across Mars: Study

Water overflowing from ancient lakes on Mars created catastrophic floods that rapidly carved canyons on the red planet over three billion years ago, a study has found. The findings suggest that catastrophic geologic processes may have had a major role in shaping the landscape of Mars and other worlds without plate tectonics, said Tim […]

Stress of stretching solids: 3D image shows how particles distribute in metals

From the pots and pans on the stove to the wires suspending bridges, metal composites need to account for a variety of strength, malleability, and durability to meet human need. Now, researchers from the Nagoya Institute of Technology (NITech) in Japan have applied three-dimensional crystallography to visualize how individual particles shape up the composites — […]

A New Study Reveals How Humans Could Accidentally Murder Life on Mars

A New Study Reveals How Humans Could Accidentally Murder Life on Mars

Be careful what you wish—even if what you’re wishing for is something you really, really need. Take, for example, Chile’s Atacama Desert. Widely considered the driest place in the world, it has an average rainfall of as little as 0.04 inches per year and meaningful rainfall of about 1.5 inches (enough to leave short-lived shallow […]

So What's Going On With That 'Hurricane Of Dark Matter?'

So What's Going On With That 'Hurricane Of Dark Matter?'

It’s the perfect science-fiction device: a hurricane of dark matter. Recent, real-life research has demonstrated that our Sun is currently engulfed in a so-called a stellar stream. Some publications have seized on this ominous-sounding idea, reporting that Earth is about to be walloped by a dark matter storm — but in fact, if it exists, we’re […]
