CARBON WORLDS
Black carbon larger cause of climate change than previously assessed
Washington DC (SPX) Jan 17, 2013 – Black carbon is the second largest man-made contributor to global warming and its influence on climate has been greatly underestimated, according to the first quantitative and comprehensive analysis of this issue. The landmark study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres says the direct influence of black carbon, or soot, on warming the climate could be about twice pr … more
SOLAR SCIENCE
New Sunspots Producing Space Weather
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Jan 18, 2013 – On Jan. 13, 2013, at 2:24 a.m. EST, the sun erupted with an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection or CME. Not to be confused with a solar flare, a CME is a solar phenomenon that can send solar particles into space and reach Earth one to three days later. Experimental NASA research models, based on observations from the Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) and the ESA/NASA missio … more

Jupiter Dances with the Moon on January 21st
Boston MA (SPX) Jan 18, 2013 – Stargazers in the Americas have an extraordinary opportunity on the night of Monday, January 21, 2013. Jupiter, the second-brightest planet, will appear less than a finger-width from the Moon throughout North America. And in much of South America, the Moon will actually pass right in front of Jupiter, hiding it from view. The pair is already very close together at sunset. The time of their … more

Scientists reassemble the backbone of life with a particle accelerator
Grenoble, France (SPX) Jan 17, 2013 – Scientists have been able to reconstruct, for the first time, the intricate three-dimensional structure of the backbone of early tetrapods, the earliest four-legged animals. High-energy X-rays and a new data extraction protocol allowed the researchers to reconstruct the backbones of the 360 million year old fossils in exceptional detail and shed new light on how the first vertebrates moved from … more
