New thoughts on how carbonates record the global carbon cycle

Geyman emerges from the Bahamas after sediment sampling. The analysis of the samples helps to reconstruct the complex chemistry of the earth's past. Picture credits: Emily Geyman When scientists want to study Earth's very old geological past – typically more than 100 million years ago – they often turn to rocks called carbonates. Calcium carbonates, the most common forms of …

The fusion of black holes can be explained by the Pac-Man-like mechanism: study

New York: In a first study, researchers have created simulations explaining how the largest black hole merging occurred. Researchers, including those from the US Rochester Institute of Technology, said that space disturbances were detected from 10 black hole fusions to gravitational waves from earth observatories, but the origins of these fusions are still there Unknown Be declared. The largest fusion …
