Early Earth Relied On Carbon To Keep Warm Enough For Life
2013-07-10 13:58:57

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online University of Colorado Boulder researchers have figured out how early Earth was warm enough to support life when the sun was 20 per cent dimmer than today. A new study determined that all that may have been required to sustain liquid water and primitive life on Earth during the Archean eon, 2.8 billion years ago, were the reasonable atmospheric carbon dioxide amounts believed to be present at the time and a little bit of methane....

Arctic Permafrost Melts And Releases Greenhouse Gases
2013-06-11 10:18:54

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Conditions within Arctic permafrost soils prevent dead plants and animals from decomposing, resulting in layer upon layer of organic carbon being sequestered just beneath the topsoil. However, rising Arctic temperatures are causing these soils to thaw at unprecedented rates, and NASA scientists are currently looking into just how much greenhouse gas is being released through soil decomposition. Using NASA´s C-23 Sherpa...

Cassini Spacecraft Observes Aerosol 'Snow' On Saturn Moon Titan
2013-06-05 14:44:00

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Scientists writing in The Astrophysical Journal say they have found aerosol "snow" on Saturn's moon Titan. The scientists said they confirmed the presence of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the upper atmosphere of Saturn's largest moon. This study provides an explanation of the origin of the aerosol particles found in the lowest haze layer that blankets Titan's surface. Titan has an atmosphere most resembling that...

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...
