Rainwater can help trigger earthquakes

By sciencenews.org Where it rains, it rumbles. Rainwater and snowmelt help fuel intense earthquakes along a New Zealand tectonic fault, new research suggests. Tracing the source of water flowing through New Zealand’s Alpine Fault shows that more than 99 percent of it originated from precipitation, researchers report April 19 in Earth and Planetary Science Letters.

A weasel has shut down the Large Hadron Collider

By sciencenews.org CERN’s Large Hadron Collider is in standby mode after a 66-kilovolt/18-kilovolt electrical transformer suffered a short circuit April 29 at 5:30 a.m. Central European Time. The culprit: A small wild animal, believed to be a weasel, gnawing on a power cable. “The concerned part of the LHC stopped immediately and safely, though some connections were […]

Possible source of high-energy neutrino reported

By sciencenews.org Scientists may have found the cosmic birthplace of an ultra-high energy neutrino. They point the finger at a blazar — a brilliantly luminous galaxy that shoots a jet of radiation in the direction of Earth — 9 billion light years away. If the link between the blazar and neutrino is real, scientists would […]

A storm of tweets followed Superstorm Sandy’s path

By sciencenews.org As Superstorm Sandy threatened the East Coast of the United States in fall of 2012, people stocked up on bread and batteries. They boarded their windows. And they tweeted. During the height of the storm and its impact, between October 26 and November 10, people sent more than 20 million hurricane-related tweets. Now, […]

Mathematicians find a peculiar pattern in primes

By sciencenews.org Prime numbers, divisible only by 1 and themselves, hate to repeat themselves. They prefer not to mimic the final digit of the preceding prime, mathematicians have discovered. “It is really, really bizarre,” says Stanford University postdoctoral researcher Robert Lemke Oliver, who, with Stanford number theorist Kannan Soundararajan, discovered this unusual prime predilection. “We […]

Wandering Jupiter could have swept inner solar system clean

By sciencenews.org A wandering baby Jupiter could help explain why there are no planets closer to the sun than Mercury and why the innermost planet is so tiny, a new study suggests. Jupiter’s core might have formed close to the sun and then meandered through the rocky planet construction zone. As the infant Jupiter moved, […]

Antarctic history suggests ice sheet ‘danger’ threshold

By sciencenews.org Assembling a detailed timeline surrounding the Antarctic ice sheet’s inception around 34 million years ago, scientists have identified a carbon dioxide “danger zone” for the ice sheet’s demise. Based on CO2 levels when the ice sheet formed, the researchers report that Antarctica’s ice will be “dramatically” more vulnerable to melting once CO2 surpasses […]

Mountains on Pluto are a winter wonderland of methane snow

By sciencenews.org Over the ground lies a mantle of white — on Pluto. Snow-capped peaks on the dwarf planet dot an otherwise ruddy terrain. But these snowy summits appear to be composed of methane, not water, researchers report online March 3. Mountain tops in Pluto’s Cthulhu Regio, a dark landscape abutting the planet’s famous heart, […]

3.5 billion years ago, oceans were cool, not hot

By sciencenews.org About 3.5 billion years ago, Earth’s oceans were cool, not inhospitably hot as previously thought. In fact, the entire planet at the time was probably locked in a cold snap that lasted at least 30 million years, a new study concludes. The findings, published online February 26 in Science Advances, could change the […]

Ancient tectonic plate blocks magma plume at Yellowstone

By sciencenews.org The supervolcano lurking under Yellowstone National Park may not have resulted from a rising plume of hot rock from the planet’s depths as previously suggested. New simulations of North America’s underside reveal that the mantle plume blamed for powering the Yellowstone supervolcano is in fact cut off from the surface by the remnants […]

Equipment failure pushes back Mars lander mission

By sciencenews.org A leaky instrument will delay launch of the Mars InSight lander by at least two years, NASA announced at a December 22 press conference. The probe was slated to head to Mars in March 2016 to study the planet’s interior and reveal how terrestrial worlds (including Earth) form. Hopes of an on-time launch […]
