Great Barrier Reef at risk due to Black Band Disease

Researchers are saying that the Great Barrier Reef is at risk due to the Black Band Disease which can destroy the entire coral colonies Researchers of the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology along with Australian colleagues, have examined corals from the Great Barrier Reef affected by the Black Band Disease and identified the critical […]

NuSTAR to probe the insides of super massive black holes

On a modest budget of 165 million $, NASA has developed NuSTAR (Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array) which will probe the insides of the super massive black holes hidden inside of galaxies Both space-based telescopes are sensitive to high-energy photons produced at the thresholds of supermassive black holes. NuSTAR will be ferried into orbit by a […]

Methane can be a clean energy source according to scientists

Scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory are researching ways to use methane as a clean energy source by capturing the CO2 byproduct in an ice-like state. The researchers are using SNAP to look at the molecular level relationship between methane and water to better understand how hydrocarbons are taken up and released in the […]

New species of frog found in New York and New Jersey

A yet unnamed species of a frog has recently been discovered by scientists. They say that the frog looked like a common leopard frog but it totally different from it The yet unnamed amphibian was discovered by a team of researchers in the ponds and marshes of Staten Island, mainland New York, and New Jersey. […]

Rapidly retreating glacial ice is a threat to many species

The rapid retreatment of glaciers is altering more than just the physical landscape according to a recent analysis. Species that are living in streams and rivers flowing from the melting glaciers could start disappearing to the point of being extinct if half of the glacial cover in a region is lost. A team of scientists […]

NASA continues to monitor solar flares this week

On March 8, 2012 at 10:53 P.M EST, the sun erupted with an M6.3 class flare which released a CME about an hour later. Apart from the rising geomagnetic storm conditions, the active region 1429 has produced two X class flares and many M-class flares. The NASA Space Weather Center models show that the CME […]

Thermonuclear phases in neutron star detected by researchers

A team of researchers has been able to detect all phases of a thermonuclear process occurring in  a neutron star that is located close to the centre galaxy of the Terzan 5 globular cluster. The observations were analysed by X-ray observation satellites. This is the first time that scientists have successfully discovered all phases of […]

Microfluidic device used to monitor Sickle Cell Disease

Researchers from MIT, MGH, Harvard and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have invented a microfluidic device that can analyse the behaviour of blood samples collected from patients suffering from sickle cell disease. More than 60 years ago, the main reason for sickle cell disease was discovered by scientists. People suffering from this disease produced crescent-shaped red […]

NSA Launches Rocket into the Aurora Borealis

NSA Launches Rocket into the Aurora Borealis Astronomers from NASA have successfully launched a NASA-Funded rocket into the aurora borealis which is commonly known as the northern lights. The 46-foot rocket, the Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling in the Alfvén resonator (MICA), launched from the Poker Flat Research Range, 30 miles north of Fairbanks, Alaska. The rocked arced 200 miles […]

Ancient Permian ecosystem reconstructed by scientists from ash-covered plants

Ancient Permian ecosystem reconstructed by scientists from ash-covered plants A group of Paleoecologists have successfully constructed a Permian-era swampy frost filled with extinct plant species with the help of fossils that were entombed in a layer of volcanic ash in northern China under a coal mine. Though most of the species are already know, the […]
