An asteroid will block the brightest star in the night sky on Monday, and astronomers need your help seeing it

Sirius, a system of two stars — Sirius A and Sirius B — is the brightest object we can see from Earth. However, an asteroid called (4388) Jürgenstock will briefly pass in front of Sirius on Monday night. Sirius will almost entirely fade for a few tenths of a second as the 3.1-mile-wide asteroid flies by. The occultation, as it's called, should be visible in parts of Mexico, six US states, and Canada. Sirius, a double-star system and the brightest object in the night sky, will briefly blink ou...

Scientists Have Reduced the Forecast of Sea Level Rise Seven Times Due To Melting of the Antarctic (slashdot)

The destruction of the Antarctic ice sheet may not lead to such a catastrophic rise in the level of the oceans, as previously thought. In a new study, the authors calculated that instead of growing by a meter or more by 2100, a growth of 14-15 cm is likely, writes N + 1. At the same time, the melting of the ice of Greenland and Antarctica is not fully taken into account in modern climate models, as it will lead to even more destabilization of the regional climate. Both studies on this are publis...

A $48 million submarine just took a record-breaking dive to the deepest corner of the Atlantic Ocean — 27,840 feet down

Private equity firm manager and explorer Victor Vescovo just became the first person to reach the deepest point in the Atlantic Ocean. Vescovo solo-piloted a $48 million Triton Submarine to the bottom of the Puerto Rico Trench, 27,480 feet below the surface (8,376 meters). This was the first stop on a five-part exploration of the bottom of the world's oceans. Next up is the South Sandwich Trench.  It's a new record: American businessman and explorer Victor Vescovo just became the first person...

Tourist impact on Antarctic birds

We often worry about animals spreading diseases to humans, but not the other way around. Now, the discovery of human-linked pathogens in bird feces have revealed that humans may be causing animals in Antarctica to get sick. The phenomenon is called reverse zoonosis, and for the first time ever, it’s spread to the world’s most isolated continent. According to scientists, consequences of this new human-to-animal disease route could prove dire to Antarctic bird colonies, even contributing to the...

Why this 2015 NASA study is beloved by climate change skeptics

A 2015 NASA study caused major controversy by claiming that Antarctica was gaining more ice than it was losing.The study said that ice gains in East Antarctica were effectively canceling out ice losses in the western region of the continent.Since 2015, multiple studies have shown that Antarctica is losing more ice than it's gaining, though the 2015 study remains a favorite of climate change doubters to this day. None Climate change skeptics don't usually cite NASA when trying to make a point. Th...

Exploring Earth's final frontiers: Five Deeps Expedition attempts to visit the bottom of the world's oceans

For the last three years, a society of explorers, oceanographers, engineers and scientists has been secretly working on a project without precedent; now the adventurer Victor Vescovo will push the results of their labour to the limit. A collaboration between undersea-technology company Caladan Oceanic, specialist tour operator Eyos Expeditions and Triton Submarines, the Five Deeps Expedition is the first global ocean journey to send a manned submersible to the five deepest points below the surfa...

Ocean warming

New research has uncovered a previously unaccounted for pathway transporting heat from the Pacific Ocean to the Indian Ocean, and even further to the Southern Ocean, which surrounds Antarctica. It has implications for climate change and what we know about global warming.

Business as usual for Antarctic krill despite ocean acidification

A new IMAS-led study has found that Antarctic krill are resilient to the increasing acidification of the ocean as it absorbs more C02 from the atmosphere due to anthropogenic carbon emissions.Krill are one of the most abundant organisms on Earth and a critical part of the Southern Ocean marine ecosystem.

Plans for world's largest ocean sanctuary in Antarctic blocked

A plan to create the world's largest marine sanctuary in Antarctic waters was shot down when a key conservation summit failed to reach a consensus, with environmentalists on Saturday decrying a lack of scientific foresight. Member states of the organisation tasked with overseeing the sustainable exploitation of the Southern Ocean failed at an annual meeting Friday to agree over the a 1.8 million square kilometre (1.1 million square miles) maritime protection zone. The proposed sanctuary -- som...

Highly bioavailable dust-borne iron delivered to the Southern Ocean during glacial periods [Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences]

Changes in bioavailable dust-borne iron (Fe) supply to the iron-limited Southern Ocean may influence climate by modulating phytoplankton growth and CO2 fixation into organic matter that is exported to the deep ocean. The chemical form (speciation) of Fe impacts its bioavailability, and glacial weathering produces highly labile and bioavailable Fe...

Humans are about to touch the deepest corners of the ocean for the first time — an endeavor as dangerous as landing on the moon

A submarine mission called "Five Deeps" is going to explore the bottom of each of the world's oceans. First up: the depths of the Atlantic. The mission will launch from the coast of Puerto Rico in December. We may not know where the deepest point in the ocean really is. This team wants to find out. Imagine exploring a place so far from humanity that any message you send takes seven seconds to be heard. That's arguably more remote than the moon — radio waves sent back-and-forth during the Apol...
