Stingray shaped probes could explore the atmosphere of Venus

University of Buffalo researchers are working on a concept in which a changing plane could explore the sky above Venus and discover its elusive "dark side". It's called BREEZE or bio-inspired beam for extreme environments and zonal exploration. Like a stingray that moves with its pectoral fins through water, this transforming probe beats its wings during the flight and holds …

Humanity did not live until 1965 with a carbon dioxide-rich atmosphere

Scientists reconstructed the carbon dioxide content of the earth when analyzing paleogenic carbonates found in the ancient loess plateau. Picture credits: Dr. med. Yige Zhang A new study involving a Texas A & M University researcher has shown that people have never lived under the high carbon content atmospheric conditions that have become the norm on Earth for the past …

First water detected in the atmosphere of a planet with habitable zone

Enlarge / Artistic representation of the planet K2-18b and its clouds. On Wednesday, astronomers announced the first discovery of water in the atmosphere of a planet located in the habitable zone of its host star. The planet K2-18b is certainly not habitable for us, as it is a mini-Neptune that may not have a solid surface and probably has a …

Earth not so unique? First "habitable" world with WATER in the atmosphere found using Hubble – RT World News

A group of astronomers may have found Earth's long lost cousin and discovered the first "habitable" planet with water in its atmosphere. This is the result of new research supported by the Hubble telescope. Known as K2-18b, the mysterious eight-fold exoplanet is twice the size of Earth, but its atmosphere could help answer burning questions about the possibility of living …

New insight into how much atmosphere Mars lost

The artist's concept depicts the early Martian environment (right) – presumably liquid water and a thicker atmosphere – compared to the cold, arid environment seen on Mars today (Left). Credits: Goddard Space Flight Center of NASA According to new observations from NASA-funded scientists, an important indicator used to estimate how much atmosphere Mars has lost may change depending on the …

Questions and Answers: Scientists model the atmosphere of an exoplanet

This artist's animation shows the exoplanet LHS 3844b, which is 1.3 times Earth's mass and orbits an M dwarf star. According to NASA Spitzer Space Telescope observations, the surface of the planet may be mostly covered in dark lava rock without any sense of atmosphere. NASA sharpener In search of life beyond our galaxy, many scientists have their eyes fixed …

This strange, rocky planet has no atmosphere

A nearby, rocky exoplanet may be just a rock without atmosphere – supporting a theory that planets orbiting small stars are more prone to lacking atmosphere. Space Telescope observed Planet LHS 3844b looking for signs of an atmosphere. Instead, they found evidence that the planet is a naked rock. The results support the theory that planets orbiting smaller stars (about …
