Massive earthquake reveals mountains 660 kilometers below us

Earthquakes and particularly massive earthquakes bring fear into our hearts and sympathy for those who are exposed to them. In this case, a massive earthquake produced a new discovery about our planet. SEE ALSO: TOP 5 EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT STRUCTURES WORLDWIDE Some Princeton geophysicists in collaboration with Sidao from the Institute of Geodesy and Geophysics in China investigated data from an …

The Bolivian earthquake of 1994 reveals 660 kilometers under our feet mountains

Most schoolchildren learn that the earth has three (or four) layers: crust, mantle and core, sometimes divided into an inner and outer core. This is not wrong, but it leaves out several other layers that scientists have identified within the Earth, including the transition zone within the mantle. Jessica Irving of Princeton worked with graduate student Wenbo Wu and another …

Massive Bolivian earthquake exposes mountains 660 kilometers below our feet

Sessisologist Jessica Irving, an Assistant Professor of Earth Sciences, is sitting with two meteorites from the Princeton University collection that contain iron, presumably from inside Planetsimals. Irving uses seismology to examine the interior of our own planet. Recently, he found mountain topography roughness at the 660km boundary at the base of the mantle's transitional zone.

NASA mission plans New Year flyby of an object 4 billion kilometers away

When NASA's New Horizons spacecraft passed Pluto in July 2015, she took this picture of the great mountain ranges, where she encounters a vast icy plain called Sputnik Planitia. The crests on these photos have now been identified as dunes of solid methane grains. New Horizons photographed what scientists call a "bladed" terrain near the heart-shaped region of the dwarf …

NASA is approaching a world that lies 1 billion kilometers behind Puto

It is getting bigger. Last week, NASA released photos of the New Horizons space exploration vehicle, which is gradually approaching an ancient, little-known object in space called Ultima Thule. Ultima is orbiting the Sun a billion kilometers beyond Pluto, and NASA expects to crash near the far-flung object shortly after midnight on January 1, 2019. It will be the furthest …

Ten percent of all kilometers from Tesla were driven by autopilot

Photo: Christophe Ena (AP) When Tesla's autopilot program was launched in 2015, it appeared to be a revolutionary technology built into our cars. In principle, since the driver's intervention is minimal, our cars would drive themselves from point A to point B. Everything we need to do as human beings is to ensure that nothing bad happens. According to Tesla …
