New simulations suggest that subsurface oceans on icy moons with small natural Rossby numbers may be dominated by rotational effects.
Un análisis de componentes principales de modelos especulativos puede predecir con más seguridad que las técnicas anteriores la p^ppresencia de un océano subsuperficial en un objeto planetario.
A principal component analysis of speculative models can more confidently predict the presence of a planetary object’s subsurface ocean than previous techniques.
Tidally locked planets always present the same face to their host stars. What does this mean for their potential to support life?
Why is our Moon so massive compared with Earth, and how might that configuration happen elsewhere?
Sometimes ocean dynamics are a drag.
The young, growing planet PDS 70 c has enough material swirling around it to make at least three Moon-sized moons.
Cassini’s final flybys of Saturn’s largest moon may have captured a temperature drop due to rainfall, one of the first observations of weather changes on Titan.
Scientists tested whether a classic technique could detect subsurface oceans on the moons of Uranus. In this scenario, the planet’s oddball magnetic field offers a big advantage.
Terrestrial caves offer scientific and engineering insights and serve as testing grounds for future forays by humans and robots into caves on other worlds.
