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...

GI Researcher Co-author Of Report On International Permafrost
2012-11-28 09:25:17

University of Alaska Fairbanks University of Alaska Fairbanks researcher Vladimir Romanovsky is one of four scientists who authored a report released today by the United Nations Environmental Programme. The report, "Policy Implications of Warming Permafrost," seeks to highlight the potential hazards of carbon dioxide and methane emissions from warming permafrost, which have not thus far been included in climate-prediction modeling. The report notes that permafrost covers almost a...

Mystery Of Marine Methane Oxidation Unraveled
2012-11-12 13:27:20

Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Researchers uncover how microorganisms on the ocean floor protect the atmosphere against methane Microbiologists and geochemists from the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, along with their colleagues from Vienna and Mainz, show that marine methane oxidation coupled to sulfate respiration can be performed by a single microorganism, a member of the ancient kingdom of the Archaea, and does not need to be carried out in collaboration with a bacterium, as...

Methane Consuming Microorganisms Have Strange Diet
2012-11-06 13:06:13

Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Methane supplies the energy for cell metabolism, but is not the carbon source Methane is formed under the absence of oxygen by natural biological and physical processes, e.g. in the sea floor. It is a much more powerful greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Thanks to the activity of microorganisms this gas is inactivated before it reaches the atmosphere and unfolds its harmful effects on Earth's climate. Researchers from Bremen have now proven that these...

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...
