Early Sun's Violent Beginnings May Have Unlocked The Mystery Of Milky Way Meteorites
2014-07-01 14:36:46

Gerard LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Observations of a Sun-like star through the Herschel Space Observatory may have unlocked the mystery of meteorites in our own galaxy, according to European Space Agency (ESA) astronomers. Astronomers are studying young stars in faraway areas of the galaxy, discovering they have a violent beginning, much as our own sun did 4.5 billion years ago. Herschel is surveying the chemical composition of stars being born and a team of...

[ Watch The Video: Ancient Soil Found Under Greenland Ice Sheet ] By Joshua E. Brown, University of Vermont Glaciers are commonly thought to work like a belt sander. As they move over the land they scrape off everything—vegetation, soil, and even the top layer of bedrock. So scientists were greatly surprised to discover an ancient tundra landscape preserved under the Greenland Ice Sheet, below two miles of ice. "We found organic soil that has been frozen to the bottom of the...

James Webb Space Telescope Mirror's Amazing Anatomy

Rob Gutro, NASA When you think of a mirror, there really isn't that much needed to describe it, but when you look at a mirror that will fly aboard NASA's next-generation James Webb Space Telescope, there's a lot to the anatomy of a mirror. NASA's Webb telescope includes a primary, secondary and tertiary mirror. Although the relatively small secondary and tertiary mirrors are unique, it's the expansive primary mirror that has the most complicated anatomy with a number of components...

Study Shows Rock Can Turn Into Soil Faster Than Previously Thought
2014-01-17 11:09:55

University of Washington Geologic time is shorthand for slow-paced. But new measurements from steep mountaintops in New Zealand show that rock can transform into soil more than twice as fast as previously believed possible. The findings were published Jan. 16 in the early online edition of Science. "Some previous work had argued that there were limits to soil production," said first author Isaac Larsen, who did the work as part of his doctoral research in Earth sciences at the...

Moraine Research May Alter Thinking On Climate’s Effect On Glaciers

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A Dartmouth College-led study published in the latest edition of the journal Quaternary Geochronology describes a newly discovered, more accurate method to date the soil and rock debris left behind by high altitude tropical glaciers. The research could alter pre-existing interpretations of how climate change affected equatorial ice masses, the study authors explained in a statement Tuesday. Currently, scientists use a variety of...

Beryllium is the chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Be and atomic number 4. A toxic bivalent element, beryllium is a steel grey, strong, light-weight yet brittle, alkaline earth metal, that is primarily used as a hardening agent in alloys (most notably, beryllium copper). Notable characteristics Beryllium has one of the highest melting points of the light metals. The modulus of elasticity of beryllium is approximately 1/3 greater than that of steel. It has...
