Ocean sink for human-made carbon dioxide measured — ScienceDaily

Not all the CO 2 generated during the combustion of fossil fuels remains in the atmosphere and contributes to global warming. The ocean and land based ecosystems absorb considerable amounts of these CO 2 emissions from the atmosphere produced by man. The ocean occupies CO 2 in two phases: first, the CO 2 dissolves in surface water. Subsequently, the upside-down …

Scientists use a quantum computer to reverse time — in theory

Simulated, of course, is the key word: lead author from Gordey Lesovik of MIPT told CNN that we are not "really" getting closer to the possibility of reversing time. But it could still have important practical and theoretical consequences. A team of MIPT physicists, which also included scientists from Switzerland and the United States, examined "the possibility of violating the …

What scientists found sifting through dust in outer space

Just as dust accumulates in the corners and along the shelves of our homes, dust also accumulates in space. But when dust settles in the solar system, it is often in rings. Several rings of dust surround the Sun. The rings trace the orbits of the planets, whose gravity drags the dust into place around the Sun, as it moves …

Tropical Tectonic Collisions May Have Unleashed Ancient Ice Ages

The massive tectonic collisions in the tropics may have caused the last three great ice ages on Earth. Before each of these ice ages, new research discoveries, collisions between continents and island arches built long mountain ranges in tropical latitudes. These mountains could have prepared the ground for a cold climate: as they eroded into the seas, they would alter …

Oceans soaking up carbon 4 times faster than the 1980s – Axios

What they did: For a new study, published in the journal Science on Thursday, an international research group determined the amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by the oceans. What they found: The study finds that the oceans absorbed more than 100 billion tons of CO2 between 1994 and 2007, which represents about a third of total emissions during that period. …

Soyuz rocket launches U.S.-Russian crew to International Space Station

A Russian cosmonaut and his NASA co-pilot, five months after launching a dramatic launch break last October, finally arrived in orbit Thursday and, along with a NASA astronaut who made his first flight, docked at the International Space Station six hours later to bring back the six-man crew to the lab. The Soyuz MS-12 / 58S spacecraft left the Baikonur …
