Earth?s First Known Mass Extinction Event Starved Life of Oxygen

   08 Nov 19:00:17  |  Universe Today

650 million years ago, Earth was completely or almost completely frozen, according to the Snowball Earth Hypothesis. As the atmosphere changed and Earth warmed up, it heralded the beginning of the Ediacaran Period. The Ediacaran Period marks the first time multicellular life was widespread on the planet. It predates the more well-known Cambrian Period, when …

This is Probably the Last Picture we?ll see From InSight on Mars

   07 Nov 19:00:34  |  Universe Today

It’s almost time to say goodbye to another Martian friend. Plenty of missions to the Red Planet have gone silent for the last time, some after many successful years of data collection and some after a brief free-fall as a fireball. We will soon add another Martian explorer to that ever-growing list – InSight might …

When Black Holes Collide They Also Produce Neutrinos

   06 Nov 19:00:07  |  Universe Today

Ever since astronomers first detected ultra high energy neutrinos coming from random directions in space, they have not been able to figure out what generates them. But a new hypothesis suggests an unlikely source: the mergers of black holes. Neutrinos are extremely ghostly particles. The carry no electric charge and they interact only rarely with …

It?s Tough to Find Evidence of Stars Eating Planets

   05 Nov 20:00:20  |  Universe Today

Tragically sometimes stars engulf their own planets. While most stars are able to quickly cover up the evidence for their crime, a new study by astronomers has revealed that in some cases the evidence can linger for up to two billion years. There are a variety of ways in which a planet can end up …

IceCube Senses Neutrinos Streaming From an Active Galaxy 47 Million Light-Years Away

   04 Nov 20:00:09  |  Universe Today

Researchers using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory have detected neutrinos emanating from the energetic core of an active galaxy millions of light-years away. Neutrinos are difficult to detect, and finding them originating from the galaxy is a significant development. What does the discovery mean? Neutrinos are strange particles. For a long time, scientists thought these elementary …
