An insulating layer of gas could support a warm subsurface ocean underneath Pluto's icy crust. Data from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft, which flew by Pluto in July 2015, was recently run through a computer simulation that provided evidence for the existence of gas hydrates, creating a greenhouse effect strong enough to maintain liquid water inside [...]
The Yutu-2 made some enchanting discoveries on the far side of the moon.
Your favorite gold jewelry could be the "left-overs" of a new black hole's meals.
Biostatisticians are a growing field that emerges both biology and statistics in order to develop new observations, ideas, and accomplishments in these subjects. According to the US Bureau, job openings are expected to grow by an incredulous 34% in the next 10 years. This increase is directed by the vast growth of the health sector, [...]
Hey everyone this is going to a be simple talk on renewable resources! Renewable resources can be replenished by the earth, and some are perpetual meaning they are never ending and we do not need to wait for them to be replenished. This is a continuation of our energy talks in environmental science. Lets get [...]
According to studies conducted by medical scientists and researchers in the United States, artificial intelligence is developing a much more influential role than it has held in previous years. How, specifically? By diagnosing the genetic disorders of any patient, just by examining a picture of their face. It seems quite simple; yet, the efficiency this [...]
Hey everybody this talk is about energy use. Everything requires energy, and energy exists in multiple forms (read last post). There are two categories of energy: renewable and non-renewable. Renewable energy are replenished by the Earth, and we will not run out of this energy. Examples include biomass. Perpetual energy is a form of renewable [...]
Hey everyone, this talk will be focused on the basics of energy. Energy is the ability that something has to do work. Energy is used all around us and by us. There are several forms of energy: Potential energy is stored energy that is positional. Examples include: Gravitational Energy: the energy of a placeChemical Energy: [...]
Hey everyone, welcome back to our environmental science series and let's get straight into our topic on species roles and interactions. A species is a group of individual organisms that share common characteristics and genes that can reproduce with one another and produce viable offspring. Examples include humans, the Bengal tiger, African lion, etc. Generalist [...]
Welcome back to our environmental science series! Today we will be talking about biogeochemical cycles, the biological, chemical, and geological ways chemicals move through our planet's systems and is reused/recycled. This talk is going to be more visual than textual. Understanding these cycles is important because it shows us how vital chemicals are recycled and [...]
