Latest Methane Stories
Adding more ethanol to fuel with the goal of reducing air pollution carries a hidden risk that toxic - or even explosive - gases may make their way into buildings, particularly those nearby with cracked foundations.
Using the Atacama Large Millimeter Array telescope in northern Chile, scientists have identified a very young star in our galaxy which had such an explosive birth, it used to be about 100 times brighter than it is now.
The seafloor off the coast of Northern Siberia is releasing more than twice the amount of methane as previously estimated, according to new research results published in the Nov. 24 edition of the journal Nature Geoscience.
The US Environmental Protection Agency could be underestimating American methane emission levels by as much as 50 percent, according to new research appearing in this week’s early online edition of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Ultimate Flatulence Cure designed by Joseph Arnold is a new program that covers home remedies for flatulence, bloating, bad smell and excessive gas problems.
Derek Lovley's lab at UMass Amherst show for the first time that one of the most abundant methane-producing microorganisms on Earth makes direct electrical connections with another species to produce the gas in a completely unexpected way
Uranus' moon Umbriel -- Umbriel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. It was named after the 'dusky melancholy sprite' in Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock. Umbriel's surface is the darkest of the Uranian moons, and it is also the least geologically active. It is mostly composed of water ice, with the balance made up of silicate rock and methane ice. Most of its methane ice is on its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...
Uranus' moon Ariel -- Ariel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. Its composition is roughly 50% water ice, 30% silicate rock, and 20% methane ice, and it appears to have regions of fresh frost in places. Largely devoid of impact craters, Ariel appears to have undergone a period of intense geological activity that has produced a huge network of fault canyons and liquid water outflows over its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...
