Climatologists Predict More Extreme Summer Temperatures in 21st Century
2012-02-16 14:32:07

A new report published by an American non-profit research center says that extreme summer temperatures are becoming increasingly commonplace in the United States, a trend that they project will continue throughout the 21st century.

High-Pressure Phase Changes Could Play Role In Exoplanet Formation
2012-02-12 05:37:38

Phase transitions in liquid magmas at the pressure and temperature levels that exist deep within Earth-like planets could play a role in the formation of new worlds.

Models Help Define Exoplanet Structure

On Thursday, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) proposed new names for elements 114 and 116.

Separating Signal And Noise In Climate Warming
2011-11-19 04:19:22

In order to separate human-caused global warming from the "noise" of purely natural climate fluctuations, temperature records must be at least 17 years long, according to climate scientists.

Massive Compact Halo Object (MACHO) -- Massive compact halo objects, or MACHOs, are a type of astronomical body proposed as one possible explanation for the presence of dark matter in galactic halos. A MACHO is a small chunk of normal baryonic matter, far smaller than a star, which drifts through interstellar space unassociated with any solar system. Since MACHOs would not emit any light of their own, they would be very hard to detect. Recent work has suggested that MACHOs are not...
