Over 250 million years ago a mysterious event dubbed the Great Dying wiped out 90 percent of all species on Earth. Scientists have debated the culprit behind this mass extinction event for years, and a new study from MIT researchers has concluded that countless, tiny microbes...
Earth's Atmosphere -- Earth's atmosphere consists of nitrogen (78.1%) and oxygen (20.9%), with small amounts of argon (0.9%), carbon dioxide (variable, but around 0.035%), water vapor, and other gases. The atmosphere protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation and reducing temperature extremes between day and night. 75% of the atmosphere exists within 11km of the planetary surface. Temperature and the Atmospheric Layers The temperature of the Earth's atmosphere...
