"Ask a Spaceman" Takes a closer look at the universe's "baby image"

This week's "Ask A Spaceman" section explores the radiation bug at Big Bang that formed our universe. While we can not see the radiation with our eyes, it surrounds us everywhere, according to Paul Sutter, astrophysicist and Space.com columnist. "We know so well we can know things like 13.8 billion years ago, the whole observable universe was – stay with …

Mangrove expansion and climate warming can help ecosystems to keep pace with sea level rise

Sea water raising and extreme weather events have become difficult realities for those living along the coast of the world. The record breaking hurricanes in the last decade in the United States have led to staggering tolls on coastal infrastructure and communities, leading many local governments to consider the benefits of natural coastal barriers. In a milestone study entitled "Heating …

Can life develop on Mars?

In recent months, we have learned of new evidence that complex organic molecules – presumably the most important ingredients for life – have been preserved in Martian stones. that Mars's atmosphere exhibits seasonal variations of methane, a potential chemical signature of life; and that a large reservoir of liquid water is below the surface of the planet itself. Each of …

Increasing temperature poses deeper corals in danger, claims new research

While researchers routinely use data from ocean surface space collected by satellites to predict the temperature-driven stress on the reef community, a new research shows that surface measurements alone can not accurately predict the full extent of thermal stress on deeper corals. A new study describes a new method of predicting warm temperature-induced stress on coral from the ocean surface …
