New Research Calculates Speed of Ice Formation

Scientists have for the first time calculated the rate at which water crystallizes to form ice in a realistic computer molecule of water molecules. In a breakthrough research, a supercomputer offered a complete insight into the mechanism by which water turns from liquid state to a crystalline solid. The study conducted by two researchers from Princeton University, Amir Haji-Akbari, a ...

NASA’s Curiosity Server Finds Organic Matter on Mars

NASA’s Curiosity rover has made the first definitive detection of organic molecules at Mars. It detected the building blocks of all known forms of terrestrial life on Mars. The organic molecules consist of a wide variety of molecules made primarily of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms. The organic molecules, found by the team responsible for the Sample Analysis at Mars ...

Volcanism Likely Triggered Flowing Liquid on Early Mars

The warmth and liquid flow on ancient Mars were probably episodic, likely to be related with brief periods of volcanic activity that spewed tons of greenhouse-inducing sulphur dioxide gas into the atmosphere, finds a new research. The work by scientists from Brown University in Rhode Island and Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science suggests that periods of temperatures warm enough for ...
