After just two years in orbit, ESA’s GOCE satellite has gathered enough data to map Earth’s gravity with unrivalled precision. Scientists now have access to the most accurate model of the ‘geoid’ ever produced to further our understanding of how Earth works. The new geoid was unveiled today at the Fourth International GOCE User Workshop […]
NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth’s atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models […]
The Earth’s magnetic poles have started moving at an increased rate in recent years. Some fear a catastrophic pole flip. Most scientists don’t seem worried. (FOX News)- Will the wandering magnetic North Pole create crazy superstorms? The eye-popping connection between the planet’s weather and itsmagnetic field has caught hold among scaremongers recently, ever since scientists described the […]

Thermogeddon: When the Earth gets too hot for humans. According to a recent study, parts of the Earth could start to become uninhabitable within a century. Surely it cannot be true? IT IS the late 23rd century. Houston, Tel Aviv, Shanghai and many other once-bustling cities are ghost towns. No one lives in Louisiana or […]
Mary J. Blige is partnering with NASA with the objective to encourage girls and women of all ages to take up careers in science. Cited in a recent article. NASA released two public service announcements featuring Blige and space shuttle astronaut Leland Melvin this week on NASA TV online. In addition, Blige, who cofounded the Foundation for […]
IEEE Committee on Earth Observation Standards Working Group (ISWG) is recruiting volunteers to build GEOSS Imagine a world where adoption of uniform standards for all manner of Earth observation systems and services made universal interoperability the rule, not the exception. That world is one of the major goals of the IEEE Committee on Earth Observation […]
Space tourism could have big impact on climate Space tourism could have major consequences for Earth’s climate. New computer simulations suggest soot emitted by the rockets could raise temperatures at the poles, significantly reducing seasonal ice cover there. In the next few years, space tourism companies hope to start routinely flying passengers on suborbital space […]
Ouachita Mountains, Oklahoma. Prairies stretch across much of Oklahoma, but the state also holds mountain ranges, including the Ouachita Mountains in the southeastern corner. Formed over 300 million years ago, these mountains are a highly eroded remnant of a much larger range, one that may have stretched from Texas into southeastern Canada.
