New evidence bolsters the notion that deep saline groundwaters in South Africa's Witwatersrand Basin may have remained isolated for many thousands, perhaps even millions, of years. The study, recently accepted for publication in Chemical Geology, found the noble gas neon dissolved in water in three-kilometre deep crevices. The unusual neon profile, along with the high salinities and some other unique chemical signatures, is very different from anything seen in molten fluid and gases rising...

When NASA's Galileo probe reached Jupiter in 1995 and began sending back data about the gas giant, astronomers were in for a surprise: Jupiter was unusually poor in helium and neon, the two lightest noble gases. New simulations of the physics inside the planet reveal why. The results, which provide a glimpse into Jupiter's turbulent innards, are reported in the current issue of Physical Review Letters and highlighted with a Viewpoint by Jonathan Fortney (University of California, Santa Cruz)...

By Jason Bracelin It began with a series of high fives in a dark room, delivered by a group of dudes beaming like teen boys after one of them had just lost his virginity. And in a way, a seal had been broken. It was Thursday night at the Beauty Bar, and Vegas indie rockers The Novelty Act had christened the four-day Neon Reverb downtown music fest with a strong set of dissonant, yet tuneful pop cluster bombs punctuated by bursts of tenor sax and a guitarist who played from his knees...

By Jason Bracelin They call themselves facilitators, not promoters. There's a difference, you know. "I try to make that clear to everybody," Thirry Harlin says between bites of his lunch at The Strip Sandwich Shop on a recent Tuesday afternoon. "We're not corporate guys," his cohort, James Woodbridge, notes. Together and on their own, these two fixtures of the Vegas indie music scene have booked tons of shows over the years, Woodbridge as the head of his MetaMeta Productions company,...

As reservoirs of valuable information go, nothing beats the sun. This sphere of heat and energy holds 99.9 percent of the solar system, saved in all original proportions after planets and meteorites formed. Analyzing the mix of hydrogen, oxygen and noble gases found in the sun can answer one of the biggest questions of the universe: How did our solar system evolve? Scientists at Washington University in St. Louis and a large team of colleagues marked the beginnings of that odyssey by...

Astronomers have observed neon in disks of dust and gas swirling around sunlike stars for the first time. University of Arizona astronomers who collaborated in the observations say that neon could show which stars retain their surrounding dust-and-gas disks needed to form planets and which stars might already have formed planets. "When I saw the neon, I couldn't believe it. I was just amazed," said UA Steward Observatory astronomer Ilaria Pascucci. "We were not expecting to see neon around...

Ever since astronauts returned from another world, scientists have been mystified by some of the moon rocks they brought back. Now one of the mysteries has been solved.

"Now, with our Genesis data, we are turning the tables, using the solar wind to better understand lunar processes." Ansgar Grimberg from ETH Institute of...
