Planetary scientists have proposed a possible explanation for the nature of Venusian phosphine without involving the activity of microorganisms. The emergence of this potential biomarker is assumed to be responsible for plume volcanism, which is still active on Venus.
Astronomers using ground-based and space telescopes were able to determine that winds are responsible for the anomalous heating of the upper atmosphere of Jupiter, which transfers heat from regions where auroras are raging to the equator of the giant.
Scientists have found an artifact made of the bone of a giant deer, decorated with chevrons. The discovery is no less than 51 thousand years old.
Astronomers using the SRT ground-based radio telescope have built the most detailed radio map of the Andromeda Galaxy. It made it possible to better study the structure of the galaxy and its properties, as well as to compile a catalog of background sources.
Scientists analyzed old ice samples from the Tibetan plateau and found in them the genomic sequences of more than 30 ancient viruses, most of which were not previously known to science. The viruses from the Guliya ice cap have been given an approximate point of origin – around 15,000 years ago.
While our attention was preoccupied with Ingenuity’s historical flights in the rough Martian atmosphere, the rover found its way to the planned research location about a kilometer south of the landing site. It is almost time to begin its search for signs of ancient life on Mars.
An international team of researchers led by physicists from the University of Cambridge found the first evidence of the presence of an anomalous phase of matter on our planet, the existence of which was predicted back in the 1960s.
