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.

Lava stream from Hawaii’s Big Island continues to splash into ocean

A stream of molten lava continued to explosively shoot out of a volcano and splash into the Pacific Ocean below on Hawaii’s Big Island on Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported.

In a newly-released statement, the USGS said a “firehose” of molten lava continued to splash into the Pacific Ocean below the cliff and explode upon impact. The federal agency also explained that a firehose is caused when a stream of lava converges into a single huge spout.

New citizen science project launched to prevent archaeological looting

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.

NASA telescope identifies farthest gamma-ray blazars

NASA telescope identifies farthest gamma-ray blazars

The National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) has announced that one of its most powerful space telescopes has spotted the farthest gamma-ray blazars, a sort of galaxy whose intense emissions are powered by monster black holes.

The monster black holes spurting jets of gamma-ray radiation towards earth have been spotted farther away than ever before. Light from the distant object started travelling to us when the universe was just 1.4 billion years old, nearly 10 per cent of its current age.

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.

Tourists let baby dolphin die on Argentina beach

Tourists let baby dolphin die on Argentina beach

A baby dolphin died last Sunday after a mob of tourists dragged it from the sea of San Bernardo in Argentina and didn’t allow it to return to the water.

The beach where the baby dolphin died is located nearly 200 miles south of Buenos Aires. A footage posted on YouTube shows a number of tourists standing or kneeling around the small marine creature, petting it and taking selfies with it.

An observer said the crowd could have allowed the baby dolphin to return to the water while it was still breathing, but they let it die.

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.
