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.

New citizen science project launched to prevent archaeological looting

A newly launched citizen science project allows anyone to remotely analyze images of ancient archaeological sites captured from space, and discover their hidden secrets as well as protect them from looting and damage.

The new platform, dubbed GlobalXplorer, provides users with satellite pictures of Earth’s surface. Sarah Parcak, a space archaeologist from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, said his project would enable anyone with Internet connection to analyze and keep an eye on archeological sites.
