New Earth mission will track rising oceans into 2030
Pasadena CA (JPL) Nov 21, 2019
Earth's climate is changing, and the study of oceans is vital to understanding the effects of those changes on our future. For the first time, U.S and European agencies are preparing to launch a 10-year satellite mission to continue to study the clearest sign of global warming - rising sea levels. The Sentinel-6/Jason-CS mission (short for Jason-Continuity of Service), will be the longest-runnin ... more

SMART discovers breakthrough way to look at the surface of nanoparticles
Singapore (SPX) Nov 06, 2019
Researchers from SMART, MIT's research enterprise in Singapore, have made a groundbreaking discovery that allows scientists to 'look' at the surface density of dispersed nanoparticles. This revolutionary technique enables researchers to 'characterise' or understand the properties of nanoparticles without disturbing the nanoparticle, and also at a far lower cost and far quicker too. The new ... more

NASA takes a cue from Silicon Valley to hatch artificial intelligence technologies
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Nov 21, 2019
Could the same computer algorithms that teach autonomous cars to drive safely help identify nearby asteroids or discover life in the universe? NASA scientists are trying to figure that out by partnering with pioneers in artificial intelligence (AI) - companies such as Intel, IBM and Google - to apply advanced computer algorithms to problems in space science. Machine learning is a type of A ... more

China says only it can rule on Hong Kong constitution; Lam says students must surrender
Beijing (AFP) Nov 19, 2019
China insisted Tuesday it alone held the authority to rule on constitutional matters in Hong Kong, as it condemned a decision by the city's high court to overturn a ban on face masks worn by pro-democracy protesters. The statement could further fan the flames in Hong Kong after months of violent protests over concerns that Beijing is chipping away at the autonomy of the financial hub. Th ... more

Earth's strange and wonderful magnetic field
Bethesda MD (SPX) Nov 12, 2019
The Earth's magnetic field, or geomagnetic field, is the magnetic field that extends from the Earth's interior out into space. This field interacts with the stream of charged particles emanating from the Sun, known as the solar wind. This magnetic field is sustained by electric currents generated from the motion of convection currents of molten iron in the Earth's outer core. The convectio ... more

Japan grapples with serving Fukushima food at Olympics
Fukushima, Japan (AFP) Nov 20, 2019
For years, Japan's government has sought to convince consumers that food from Fukushima is safe despite the nuclear disaster. But will it serve the region's produce at the Tokyo Olympics? It's a thorny subject for the authorities. They pitched the Games in part as a chance to showcase the recovery of areas affected by the 2011 tsunami and nuclear disaster. Government officials tout stric ... more

Exoplanet axis study boosts hopes of complex life, just not next door
Atlanta GA (SPX) Nov 20, 2019
"They're out there," goes a saying about extraterrestrials. It would seem more likely to be true in light of a new study on planetary axis tilts. Astrophysicists at the Georgia Institute of Technology modeled a theoretical twin of Earth into other star systems called binary systems because they have two stars. They concluded that 87% of exo-Earths one might find in binary systems should have axi ... more
