A second space rock hit Earth after the one that doomed the dinosaurs - a nail in the coffin of the mass extinction

An artist's depiction of the moment the Chicxulub asteroid struck in present-day Mexico 66 million years ago. Chase Stone One space rock hit Mexico 66 million years ago, causing a mass extinction that doomed the dinosaurs. A study suggests another asteroid struck Ukraine 650,000 years later, possibly warming the climate. These back-to-back impacts may have delayed Earth's recovery from the mass extinction.

Earth tipped over on its side 84 million years ago and then righted itself, new study finds

A photo of Earth taken by NASA's Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC). Reuters/NASA Earth tipped over on its side and back between 79 million and 86 million years ago, a study shows. The planet tilted by 12 degrees - which would've moved New York City to where Florida is right now. Earth's crust can shift like this depending on how weight is distributed across planet's surface.

Nasa warned the Earth is trapping twice as much heat as in 2005 - a pace that's 'unprecedented'

The Earth and the sun. NASA/Reuters NASA researchers warned the Earth is trapping heat at a rate so much higher it's "unprecedented." The amount of heat being trapped by Earth has roughly doubled since 2005, the study found. The NASA and NOAA study pointed to human activity and changes in the oceans.

Earth is Trapping 'Unprecedented' Amount of Heat, NASA Says

The Earth is trapping nearly twice as much heat as it did in 2005, according to new research, described as an "unprecedented" increase amid the climate crisis. From a report: Scientists from NASA, the US space agency, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa), reported in a new study that Earth's "energy imbalance approximately doubled" from 2005 to 2019. The increase was described as "alarming." "Energy imbalance" refers to the difference between how much of the Sun's "radi...

Why Venus Is Soon to Be the Most Exciting Place in the Solar System

It’s hot. It’s toxic. It spins backwards and is covered in volcanoes. And we’re headed there soon. Three Venus missions, recently announced by NASA and the European Space Agency, are going to reveal more than we’ve ever known about the scorcher of a planet, a place that many scientists describe as Earth’s evil twin.

Protecting space stations from deadly space debris

NASA estimates that more than 500,000 pieces of space trash larger than a marble are currently in orbit. Estimates exceed 128 million pieces when factoring in smaller pieces from collisions. At 17,500 MPH, even a paint chip can cause serious damage.To prevent this untrackable space debris from taking out satellites and putting astronauts in danger, scientists have been working on ways to retrieve large objects before they collide and create more problems.The team at Clearspace, in collaborat...
