NASA made a big discovery Thursday. Its Kepler Space Telescope discovered a planet, roughly the same size as earth, about 500 light years away from us. They’re not sure what the mass and composition of the planet are. But they know it’s in the “habitable zone,” an area near a star, where life “could” possibly exist. Read More »

Global Warming Not a Natural Process, Study

Global Warming Not a Natural Process

An analysis of temperature data since 1500 all but rules out the possibility that global warming in the industrial era is just a natural fluctuation in the earth’s climate, according to a new study by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy.

Segue 1 : Fossil galaxy may be one of first ever formed

One of our galactic neighbors, the tiny Segue 1, could be among the first galaxies ever to take shape—and it may present an opportunity for scientists to examine our universe as an infant. Segue 1’s chemical composition suggests it stopped evolving some 13 billion years ago, Scientific American reports; in fact, researchers say, it’s the “least chemically evolved galaxy known.” ...
