Meteorite’s Magnetic Memory Reveals its Secret Message A team of British geologists has developed a new way to learn something about the early days of our solar system. Since meteorites are fragmented pieces of asteroids that have fallen to Earth, testing the magnetic field of the meteorite can provide some information about its parent asteroid. […]

Scientists Explore Mystery of Antarctica’s Rising

Posted May 28th, 2014 at 7:05 pm (UTC-4)

An altered Antarctic landscape is one of the rarely discussed side effects of accelerated ice melting. For years as the ice grew in Antarctica, its weight compressed the ground beneath it. But when the ice melted and this weight was reduced, the ground sprang back, rebounding over time. However, the ground in the Northern Antarctic […]
