Wetland Trees Found To Be Major Source Of Methane
2013-02-14 14:45:53

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While wetlands represent an enormous source of atmospheric methane, researchers taking measurements of the gas at ground level in these regions have noticed a significant drop in methane levels compared to what they have measured in the air around tropical areas. The team of scientists studied both swamps and flooded forests in the tropics. After taking ground-based measurements of methane, they found that levels of the simple organic...

Beef Cows Produce More Methane During Calving Stage
2013-01-31 06:09:53

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online It is a well-known fact that cattle produce carbon dioxide and methane throughout their lives. A new study, however, pinpoints the cow-calf stage as a major contributor of greenhouse gases during beef production. The research team estimated greenhouse gas emissions from beef cattle during different stages of life in the new study, recently published in the Journal of Animal Science. Their findings reveal that, depending on which...

Lack Of Craters On Titan Makes Moon Look Younger
2013-01-17 15:10:00

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online New research based on observations from NASA's Cassini spacecraft show that Titan, Saturn's largest moon, may look younger than it really is. While most moons display their age through their thousands of craters, NASA said that Titan's craters are being erased, giving it a 'Benjamin Button' appearance. "Most of the Saturnian satellites - Titan's siblings - have thousands and thousands of craters on their surface. So far on...

JPL Bubbles Up Organics Using Ocean Vent Simulator
2013-01-17 09:25:23

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory This week, fizzy ocean water and the alkaline fluid that bubbles up from deep ocean vents are coursing through a structure at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. that is reminiscent of the pillared Emerald City in the Wizard of Oz. Scientists with the NASA Astrobiology Institute's JPL Icy Worlds team have built this series of glass tubes, thin barrels and valves with a laser and a detector system. The set-up mimics the conditions at...

New Cassini Images Indicate Floating Ice On Titan
2013-01-09 09:16:27

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists at NASA's Cassini mission revealed today that blocks of hydrocarbon ice might cover the surface of existing lakes and seas of liquid hydrocarbon on Saturn's moon Titan. Cassini's mixed readings from the reflectivity of the surfaces of the lakes on Titan might be explained by the presence of ice floes. "One of the most intriguing questions about these lakes and seas is whether they might host an exotic form of life," said...

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...
