Scientists discover ancient undersea landslide in Australia

An international team of scientists have discovered evidence of a massive ancient undersea landslide close to Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

The Gloria Knolls Slide, which could also have triggered a tsunami, occurred nearly 300,000 years ago. It was 32 cubic kilometers in volume, or nearly thirty times the size of Uluru, a rock landmark in central part of Australia.

The researchers discovered the ancient landslide while conducting 3-dimentional mapping of the Queensland Trough’s ancient reefs. The Queensland Trough is a big basin adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef.

London exhibition charts 500 years of evolution of robots

A soon-to-be opened exhibition in London will chart five hundred years of evolution of robots and organizers believe that that it will force people to think about how robots and autonomous technologies can enhance their lives.

Ben Russell, who charted the evolution of robots for the exhibit titled “Robots,” said robotic machines have been with humans for centuries as they can help a lot in making lives better.

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.
