Earth news stories
While humans aren’t warming the Earth anywhere close to as much as what happened naturally 250 million years ago, “this puts our future into the category of contenders for true catastrophe.”
The research suggests that dark matter and energy can both be explained if they’re treated as a “negative mass fluid.”
America’s National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has posted a new video illustrating what could happen if an asteroid crashed into one of our oceans, and it’s fascinating.
According to a NASA report, the asteroid has the potential of colliding with earth on 62 different impact trajectories, from between 2023 and 2117.
If it is really true that the Greenland crater was created 12,000 years ago or more, it could explain a mysterious feature called the Younger Dryas event.
Residue found in a jug in Israel shows vanilla was likely produced and traded from South Asia, millennia before it was cultivated in Mexico.
A superheated blast from the skies obliterated cities and farming settlements north of the Dead Sea around 3,700 years ago, preliminary findings suggest.
By gradually clearing away flammable material on the ground, Native Americans’ deliberate fires may have prevented large forest fires like those we see today.
‘Biological wonder’ of 200 million mounds saw soil equivalent to 4,000 great pyramids of Giza excavated by insects.
A scarily large meteorite crater has just been discovered in Greenland. It hit the world with the force of 700,000,000 nuclear bombs.
The enormous bowl-shaped dent appears to be the result of a mile-wide iron meteorite slamming into the island at a speed of 12 miles per second as recently as 12,000 years ago.
Geochemical analysis of this sediment indicates that the impactor was a fractionated iron asteroid, which must have been more than a kilometer wide to produce the identified crater.
A HUGE drawing has been discovered carved into the ground of Hawaiian wasteland, which some believe could be an ancient star map.
The remains of a medieval skeleton has shown the first physical evidence that a fern plant could have been used for medicinal purposes in cases such as alopecia, dandruff and kidney stones.
It forms at speeds of more than 1,000 mph (1,600 km/h), it lies deep beneath our feet, it could destroy hopes for alien life, and — finally — scientists understand how it works.
