Even though we are all on the same planet, everyone has a unique existence. Much of it is rooted in what the place you live in is like, including culture, climate, and environment. Just traveling somewhere else opens up a whole new experience that is completely different from the one you already knew.
Passionate about making sure humanity gets to Mars? This is your chance to help.
Apply to be a crew member in the first NASA Simulation of living on Mars for a year. You can be one of four people who live and work in a habitat called Mars Dune Alpha at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.
A simulated mission on Earth before going to the Red Planet could help NASA solve all the problems.
As we’ve learned from robotic explorers like Perseverance, Mars presents complex borders. The Perseverance team on Earth has an idea why the probe failed in its attempt to collect samples from the Martian surface last week: Rocks crumble under pressure.
a long time ago
Say hello to the original “Ice Road Truck Driver” who took the long journey and the short time to get there. Mammoths have traveled enormous distances in their lifetimes, making the equivalent of nearly twice the circumference of the Earth.
Analysis of the 17,000-year-old tusk reveals this surprising fact, among other insights into the life of mammoths. The animals have good reason to make such long journeys: their survival depends on it.
The once tusked mammoth died at the age of 28, information from Dia’s analysis revealed a possible reason for its loss.
Our planet is warming faster than previously thought, and windows are closing to avoid catastrophic changes that will change life as we know it, according to a historical report released this week by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
As we rapidly approach the global temperature threshold of 1.5°C, scientists have identified a culprit to curb: methane.
This invisible, odorless gas has more than 80 times the heating power in the near future than carbon dioxide. Its concentration in our atmosphere is now higher than at any other time in the last 800,000 years. Reducing Dependence on Fossil Fuels and Determinant methane emissions.
There are useful ways to help create change. And if you’re confused, remember: Stop blaming yourself for the climate crisis.
we are a family
early in time A 1,000-year-old tomb in Finland may belong to a non-binary personAccording to a new study. The researchers arrived at this hypothesis after carrying out a genetic analysis of the bones recovered from the grave.
The tomb was first discovered in 1968. At the time, researchers believed it belonged to a female warrior, as the tomb contained women’s jewelery and clothing, as well as a real sword. This elaborate funeral shows that the person was highly respected in his community.
The findings suggest that the concept of non-binary identity—when a person is defined as neither male nor female—may have existed in medieval Europe.
Researchers announced the discovery of a terrifying “Dragon” that flew over Australia Millions of years ago, he sowed terror in the hearts of young dinosaurs.
It has a wingspan of about 30 feet (7 meters) and was once the largest flying reptile in Australia.
Two new types of dinosaurs were also discovered in northwest China, and the creatures were enormous, almost the size of a blue whale.
One is estimated to be over 20 meters (65.6 ft) long, while the other measures 17 meters (55.77 ft). Blue whales range in length from 23 to 30 meters (75 to 98 feet). This long-necked giant walked the Earth from 120 to 130 million years ago.
