Unprecedented images of Mount Erebus’s inner workings show the unique trappings of a CO2-rich rift volcano.
Researchers are combining hard-to-get field measurements with satellite imagery to gain new insight into where peatlands are and how they work.
Five decades of data revealed a star undergoing a pause in magnetic activity similar to what the Sun experienced almost 400 years ago.
Plantas cultivadas en regolito lunar recolectado por las misiones Apollo crecieron con éxito desde la semilla hasta el retoño, brindando así información sobre las futuras perspectivas de la agricultura lunar.
Plants grown in lunar regolith collected by Apollo missions successfully grew from seed to sprout, lending insight into future lunar agriculture prospects.
If subduction carries hydrous minerals deep into Earth’s mantle, they may “rust” the iron outer core, forming vast sinks of oxygen that can later be returned to the atmosphere.
A diamond inclusion has revealed a new mineral, davemaoite, as well as hints about the workings of our planet’s interior.
Laboratory experiments re-create the thin, icy pedestals that support some rocks in nature, revealing that sublimation plays a key role in the formation of these rare and beautiful structures.
InSight data hint that shifting carbon dioxide ice loads, illumination changes, or solar tides could drive an uptick in marsquakes during northern summer—a “marsquake season.”
A new study finds that Mars’s mantle is neon-rich, putting constraints on the planet’s formation history.
