New study further complicates mystery of water on Mars

New study further complicates mystery of water on Mars

Further complicating the mystery of water on Mars, a new study by NASA scientists revealed that early atmosphere of the Red Planet likely didn’t contain sufficient carbon dioxide (CO2) to keep the planet warm enough for liquid water to last.

Mars is now cold and dry, but scientists have plenty of evidence suggesting that its surface was once covered with oceans, rivers, streams, ponds and lakes. Space probes captured some dark, narrow lines on the surface of Mars that indicated that liquid water could once be running down some of its slopes.

Microbial life may be prevalent on Mars: study

Microbial life may be prevalent on Mars: study

Scientists have long been struggling to determine whether or not Mars ever supported any kind of life. Now, a new study has indicated that life on the Red Planet might not only be present but also be prevalent.

The new study, conducted by Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute astrobiologist Janice Bishop, suggested that alien life in the form of living organisms could very present as close to Mars probes as the nearest rock.

Scientists plan to march against Trump’s anti-science views

Thousands of scientists will take to the streets on April 22nd to rally against the Trump administration’s alleged moves to suppress evidence-based research on climate change.

A Washington-based nonprofit, dubbed the Earth Day Network, has confirmed that they were organizing a rally against Trump’s history of anti-science. The rally will take place in the national capital on 22nd of April, which is celebrated every year as Earth Day.

Scientists to mark Earth Day with a protest march in Washington

Scientists to mark Earth Day with a protest march in Washington

American scientists will mark the Earth Day on 22nd of April by staging a march in Washington in protest to U.S. President Donald Trump’s stance on global warming and the resultant climate change.

President Trump has long been a vocal skeptic of manmade global warming and climate change. He as well as many members of his administration has repeatedly indicated that they don’t believe in the idea that Earth’s increasing temperatures are due to human activities. The new administration is also trying to do away with science that found evidence of climate change.

U.S. space program may be at risk due to faulty Russian rocket engines

U.S. space program may be at risk due to faulty Russian rocket engines

U.S. space agency NASA and the U.S. military may be at risk because of a major Russian scandal in which rocket engines were built out of cheap and potentially defective metal.

NASA uses Russia’s Proton-M rockets to launch cargo and well as crews to the International Space Station (ISS). But, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin recently revealed that Proton-M rockets would be out of service for the next 3½ months because of engine issues.

UC Irvine team’s Hyperloop pod ready to race in SpaceX contest

UC Irvine team’s Hyperloop pod ready to race in SpaceX contest

A 50-member team of UC Irvine students is ready with its project to participate in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition, which is scheduled to take place at the space firm’s headquarters in Hawthorne on Sunday.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced the Hyperloop project, a concept for a really high-speed ground transport system, in 2013. When UC Irvine students heard about it, they started working on their own designs to build a prototype for future transportation system.

Doomsday Clock is now just 2½ minutes to ‘midnight’

Doomsday Clock is now just 2½ minutes to ‘midnight’

The Doomsday Clock has just advanced, virtually bringing earthlings just 2½ minutes to ‘midnight,’ the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists warned.

Scientists behind the so-called Doomsday Clock announced Thursday that it was adjusting the countdown to the “End of it All” by advancing the clock’s hands 30 seconds closer to midnight.

With just 2½ minutes to the midnight, the clock is now closest to the doomsday since 1953, when the U.S. had tested its first thermonuclear bomb and was followed by the Soviet Union’s hydrogen bomb test.

Ancient, scary specimen placed in a new scientific order

Ancient, scary specimen placed in a new scientific order

A recently discovered well-preserved 100-million-year-old insect is so different from already identified more than one million insects that a new scientific order has been created to describe it.

The alien-looking specimen was discovered by a team of researchers from Oregon State University in semi-precious stone amber. It has a triangular head, almost-alien appearance along with so unusual features that scientists have called its discovery as "incredibly rare" event.

U.S. Air Force’s missile-detection satellite successfully put in orbit

The United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket successfully put the U.S. Air Force’s Space-Based Infrared System Geosynchronous Earth Orbit Satellite (SBIRS Geo-3) in high orbit, on its way to a surveillance post more than 22,000 miles above Earth’s surface.

The Atlas V rocket took off from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 7:42 p.m. ET on Friday, and dropped off the missile detection and early warning satellite in orbit 44 minutes later.

Opposition stalls end of protections for Yellowstone grizzly

Opposition from dozens of American Indian tribes and wildlife conservation groups is discouraging federal officials from going ahead with their plans to end protections for hundreds of grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park.

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) had planned to finalize their decision to lift protections for nearly 700 grizzly bears by the end of 2016, but FWS Assistant Regional Director Michael Thabault recently announced that said it could take the agency at least six more months to finalize its decision.
