The Science channel carries a program named What on Earth ? The program examines mysterious images captured by satellite cameras and tries to determine what is actually being seen. Last week, the program discussed what appeared to be a large face engraved on a Ukrainian field. Show More Summary
From stripping NASA’s earth science division, to playing truck driver while the AHCA floundered, here’s everything Donald Trump did this week.
On the eve of this year's Earth hour (25 March), researchers propose a solution in the journal Science for the global economy to rapidly reduce carbon emissions. The authors argue a carbon roadmap, driven by a simple rule of thumb or "carbon law" of halving emissions every decade, could catalyse disruptive innovation.
NASA has selected ten studies under the Planetary Science Deep Space SmallSat Studies (PSDS3) program, to develop mission concepts using small satellites to investigate Venus, Earth's moon, asteroids, Mars and the outer planets.
