Mars Is Already Shattered: Humans Left Over 15,000 Pounds of Debris on the Red Planet

Humans have left more than 15,000 pounds of trash on Mars in the past 50 years and no one has ever set foot on the Red Planet. Kajri Kilic, a postdoctoral research fellow in robotics at West Virginia University, analyzed the mass of all rovers and orbiters sent to Mars and subtracted the weight of …

The Pine Island Glacier is more vulnerable than thought – and could cause sea levels to rise by 1.6 feet

The study warns that the Pine Island ice shelf in Antarctica is more vulnerable than previously thought — and could cause the global sea level to rise by 1.6 feet if it collapses. Pine Island ice shelf traps enough ice to raise sea level by 1.6 feet He could be more prone to complete disintegration …

The study claims that the dinosaurs were already in retreat when the asteroid collided 66 million years ago

They are often depicted as making a “bang” after a massive asteroid hit Earth 66 million years ago. But a new study suggests that dinosaurs came out with more ‘moans’. Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences have studied more than 1,000 fossilized dinosaur eggs and eggshells, and claim that the animals were already in …

An asteroid collision moved the moon’s north and south poles about 186 miles over a period of 4.25 billion years.

In a new study, scientists reveal that ancient collisions with asteroids moved the moon’s north and south arches about 186 miles. A team at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland used computer simulations to erase thousands of craters from the moon’s surface — as if they were going back in time to 4.25 billion …
