2 Red Objects Found In the Asteroid Belt. They Shouldn't Be There. (slashdot)

Slashdot reader fahrbot-bot quotes the New York Times: Two red things are hiding in a part of the solar system where they shouldn't be. The space rocks may have come from beyond Neptune, and potentially offer hints at the chaos of the early solar system. Scientists led by Sunao Hasegawa from JAXA, the Japanese space agency, reported in The Astrophysical Journal Letters on July 26, 2021 that two objects, called 203 Pompeja and 269 Justitia, spotted in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter ...

Diversification in supply chain crucial to avoid 'food shock' in cities

Diversification in the sourcing of food into cities can go a long way to tempering "food shock" -- a sudden drop in food supply due to unforeseen events, according to a team of researchers from Penn State and Northern Arizona University, who developed a statistical risk model linking supply chain diversity to the probability of a city experiencing food shocks.

Cause of worst mass extinction ever found

A new paper claims to identify the cause of the Great Dying that occured nearly 252 million years ago.During the worst mass extinction event ever, most of Earth's life perished.The study suggests a volcanic eruption in Siberia spread aerosolized nickel particles that harmed organisms on the planet.Dinosaurs are the most infamous victims of a mass extinction event 66 million years ago. But an even worse extinction happened 251.9 million years ago. Called the end-Permian mass extinction or the Gre...

A few common bacteria account for majority of carbon use in soil

Fewer than ten common bacterial taxa are responsible for the majority of soil carbon cycling, a team led by researchers at Northern Arizona University announced. The study, which used a technique quantitative stable isotope probing, identified several soil microbial groups that play an outsized role in carbon processing and CO2 release, and suggests that communities found in wild soil may contain functional redundancies.

Bacterium causing rabbit fever remains virulent for months in cold water

Northern Arizona University disease ecologist David Wagner and his collaborators have published study results showing how they were able to prove, by replicating environmental conditions in the lab, that Francisella tularensis can persist for months in cold water without any nutrients and remain fully virulent. Their results provide a plausible explanation for how the deadly pathogen, which causes rabbit fever, can overwinter in the environment outside of a host.

Native Experimentalists

I started writing this article in what is presently called La Villita in northern New Mexico. These are the lands of Puebloan people, more specifically Ohkay Owingeh, as well as Jicarilla Apache.

In wild soil, predatory bacteria grow faster than their prey

In wild soil, bacteria that eat other bacteria consume more resources and grow faster than their prey, a new study from Northern Arizona University finds. The results of the study, published in the journal mBio this week, show predation is an important dynamic in the wild microbial realm, and suggest that these predators play an outsized role in how elements are stored in or released from soil.

Southern California suicides down during coronavirus pandemic — but not among young people

In late December, freshman Rodney Moore Jr. went back-to-school shopping with his family after getting a message that Anaheim High School — closed since March by the coronavirus pandemic — might reopen. “He got so excited; he even picked out a new backpack at Costco,” his mother Adriana Moore said through tears. “He never got to use it.” Not long after, the school sent another notice: It wouldn’t reopen for in-person classes at least until March 2021. “That’s when we began to notice his attitude...

Move over Farout, Farfarout is now the most distant object in our solar system

Deep in the dark, frigid expanse of the outer solar system, Farfarout slowly orbits the distant Sun, taking 1,000 years to complete each lonely orbit. First discovered in 1997 by astronomers at the Subaru eight-meter telescope on Maunakea in Hawaii, details of this frozen world are just now being revealed. Astronomers Scott Sheppard of the Carnegie Institution for Science, David Tholen from the University of Hawaii, and Chad Trujillo from Northern Arizona University have measured just how far ou...

A newly discovered space object called 'Farfarout' is the most distant thing in our solar system

An artist's interpretation of Farfarout. NOIRLab/NSF/AURA/J. da Silva Astronomers discovered a planetoid orbiting the sun further than any known object in the solar system. Called "Farfarout," the object orbits the sun every 1,000 years. Objects like Farfarout could help astronomers figure out whether a massive planet hides in the outskirts of our solar system.

American cities are significantly undercounting their greenhouse gas emissions because of flawed data, study says

New York City, NY. Westend61/Getty Images A new study found US cities are under-reporting their greenhouse gas emissions. Cities emit three-quarters of all greenhouse gases produced by fossil fuels. Researchers say a standardized method of measuring emissions is needed to address climate change. Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories. US cities are significantly undercounting their greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new study published this week in Nature Communicatio...

Astronomers discover activity on distant planetary object

A team of astronomers, led by doctoral student Colin Chandler in Northern Arizona University's Astronomy and Planetary Science PhD program, earlier this year announced their discovery of activity emanating from Centaur 2014 OG392, a planetary object first found in 2014. They published their findings in The Astrophysical Journal Letters. As a result of the team's discovery, the Centaur has recently been reclassified as a comet, and will be known as 'C/2014 OG392 (PANSTARRS).'

Scientist maps CO2 emissions for entire US to improve environmental policymaking

With wildfires in the West and hurricanes in the Gulf, the nation is affected by extreme weather-related events resulting from climate change. In response, lawmakers across the country are developing policies to reduce emissions, but the data they have is often inadequate. Kevin Gurney of Northern Arizona University published results in the Journal of Geophysical Research detailing greenhouse gas emissions across the entire US with details on economic sector, fuel and combustion process.
