Radio Waves From Earth Have Reached Dozens of Stars

For billions of years, Earth has been playing a cosmic game of hide-and-seek. New research published today in Nature posits that roughly 1,700 stars are in the right position to have spotted life on Earth as early as 5,000 years ago. From a report: These stars, within 100 parsecs (or about 326 light-years) of the sun, were found using data from NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite and the European Space Agency's Gaia mission. And with thousands of exoplanets already found orbiting other ...

There are now five oceans on Earth, proclaims National Geographic

For centuries, most of us have been taught that there are four oceans on Earth: the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, and Arctic Oceans. Now though, National Geographic has recognized a fifth ocean: the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica. Many scientists have long recognized the Southern Ocean as its own ocean and the US Board on Geographic Names has referred to the region as the Southern Ocean for more than two decades. — Read the rest

Stardust is raining down on Earth and we’re hunting it… for history

It is all around us. Every day in our lives we are in contact with it. In fact, we are made from it: ancient stardust. All the atoms around us have witnessed the most violent explosions in the universe. Their journeys through space are the longest, roughest and loneliest voyages imaginable. The hydrogen in the water we drink is the lightest of all the elements, and it dates back to the Big Bang at the beginning of the universe. Heavier elements, like the iron in our blood and the oxygen in the a...

Earth-like biospheres on other planets may be rare

A new analysis of known exoplanets has revealed that Earth-like conditions on potentially habitable planets may be much rarer than previously thought. The work focuses on the conditions required for oxygen-based photosynthesis to develop on a planet, which would enable complex biospheres of the type found on Earth. The study is published today in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Every 27.5 million years, the Earth’s heart beats catastrophically

It appears that Earth has a geologic "pulse," with clusters of major events occurring every 27.5 million years. Working with the most accurate dating methods available, the authors of the study constructed a new history of the last 260 million years.Exactly why these cycles occur remains unknown, but there are some interesting theories.Our hearts beat at a resting rate of 60 to 100 beats per minute. Lots of other things pulse, too. The colors we see and the pitches we hear, for example, are due...

Unexpected Minor Planet to Visit the Inner Solar System Soon

Well, this is cool: a recently discovered minor planet estimated to be between 62 and 230 miles across is currently journeying through our solar system and sometime in 2031 will be almost as close to the Sun as Saturn. And it turns out, astronomers are about to witness the closest pass of this incredible round trip. Currently, 2014 UN271 is about 22 Astronomical Units (AU) from the Sun (for reference, Earth is 1 AU from the Sun). That means it’s already closer than Neptune, at 29.7 AU. And it’s...
