Scientists Now Show That Asteroids Carried Water To The Moon

Scientists have now proven that the water that was deposited on the moon came for asteroids, and not comets, as previously thought. Our moon was once thought to be completely devoid of water, as the Apollo missions failed to find any concrete evidence of water in lunar soil samples. Since then, spectrographic tests from India’s first expedition to the moon determined that lunar soil from within shadowy craters and polar regions contained molecules that could only be due to the presence of water. Now, a study published in Nature Communications, conducted by an international team of scientists, who analyzed data taken from...

Dark Thirty Radio – June 15th, 2016

Tonight on Dark Thirty Radio  Extraterrestrial Response May Not Arrive For Another 1,500 Years A new study suggests that just because we haven’t heard from extraterrestrial life, doesn’t mean we won’t, it will just take a lot more time than previously hoped. Astronomy student Evan Solomonides from Cornell University, due to the sheer size of the Milky Way, it could be up to 1,500 years before we can reasonably expect to hear back from any extraterrestrials who’ve picked up our transmissions from Earth. Although 1,500 years seems like a long wait for a response that may never come, the researchers are quick...

DOOM at Lake Erie; Rare wind-driven Seiche has developed; may wipe out sections of Buffalo, NY

A natural disaster of epic proportions has been in-progress at Lake Erie today.  During the first three hours and at the time of this writing there was no sign of it stopping.  A rare wind-driven “Seiche” is taking place.  The wind is so fierce and sustained, it is blowing the entire body of lake water from west-to-east causing the natural sea level at the west end of Lake Erie to DROP 6 feet and the natural sea level at the east end to rise more than 7 feet! A seiche occurs when strong winds push the surface water. With a...

Lake Atitlan is the home to many mysteries, including merpeople, mysterious disappearances of people late at night, and people's wishes coming true when they ask the Lake for help. 0

Lake Atitlan: Her Many Mysteries (Part 2)

Article submitted by Alanna Fox Starks Lake Atitlan: Her Many Mysteries (Part 2) The Lady of the Lake? The locals say that Lake Atitlan is alive.  There have been rumors of mer-people and living spirits there. When the lake is angry it is not safe to travel on it.  The winds come up and the water looks as if it is boiling in a matter of seconds.   The lanchas, or boats, get tossed about rapidly and everyone has to hold on tight.  The most popular to travel from village to village is by boat.  This is the fastest form of travel...

The Metal Guitarist That Discovered Water On Mars

The Metal Guitarist That Discovered Water On Mars There is no doubt that Lujendra “Luju” Ojha played a pivotal role in finding water on Mars, but what was his life like prior to the discovery? Turns out, before he was a successful scientist— he was a death-metal guitarist. Ojha devised a new technique to analyze photos from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) and wound up finding evidence of water mixing with salts. “The discovery of RSL (recurring slope lineae), or the flowing salt water observed on Mars, was kind of like my undergraduate thesis when I was at the University of Arizona,” Ojha explained....

Water on Mars–Where Do We Go From Here?

Water on Mars–Where Do We Go From Here? Today’s exciting NASA press briefing confirmed what we suspected: Mars has water flows, at least intermittently. Where water flows, there is a good possibility of life, but what exactly do these conditions signify? “Our quest on Mars has been to ‘follow the water,’ in our search for life in the universe, and now we have convincing science that validates what we’ve long suspected,” said John Grunsfeld, astronaut and associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. “This is a significant development, as it appears to confirm that water — albeit briny —...

BREAKING: Present-Day Running Water on Mars Confirmed!

Present-Day Running Water on Mars Confirmed As the European Planetary Science Congress 2015 (EPSC) prepares to start in Nantes, France, today, it quietly carries news that NASA may shout tomorrow at the Mars press briefing: present-day water flow has been confirmed on Mars! An abstract from the conference proceedings by Lujendra Ojha et al confirms spectral evidence for hydrated salts–briny, salty water–in four different locations on Mars. This work has been ongoing, and has been documented throughout its study by NASA. The dark, seasonal streaks, frequently growing on the warmer slopes of Martian craters, were long thought to possibly indicate water...

NASA Announcement on Mars Mystery

 NASA Announcement on Mars Mystery Upcoming Press Briefing NASA has scheduled a press briefing for Monday, 28 September 2015, to detail a “major science finding” about Mars. Is it confirmation of water on the planet? Microbial life? Or something more unexpected, perhaps concerning the spectacularly odd rock formations Mars claims? There has been much speculation on the nature of the finding, with everyone scrambling for clues from discussions of recent findings. Inverse agrees that the composition of the press briefing contingent may give a clue: it includes Dr. Alfred McEwen, the principal investigator of HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment), and...

California Lake Vanishes Overnight

Northern California Reservoir Vanishes Overnight The $3.5 million project to save Folsom Lake sits on the horizon while a Northern California reservoir runs dry overnight, killing thousands of fish and leaving residents baffled. Formally known as Mountain Meadows reservoir, or Walker Lake, the reservoir was a popular fishing hole just west of Susanville. The rights to the site are currently owned by Pacific Gas & Electric Company who use the reservoir for hydroelectric power. PG&E claims to be just as surprised as everyone else. “It’s the situation we worked hard to avoid but the reality is we’re in a very serious drought, there’s also concerns for the...

Lake of Bourbon Goes Up In ‘Firenado’

Cocktail Recipe: Lightning, Wind, Water and 800,000 gallons of Kentucky Bourbon The Weather Channel has just released a video of an event captured on camera in 2003. Twelve years ago, a lake in Kentucky produced a spectacular phenomenon as nature’s rapid response to an accident caused a lightning strike at the nearby Jim Beam manufacturing facility.  The chain reaction started shortly after the strike when runoff from the from the blaze accumulated in nearby lakes. The fiery bourbon, attributing a key ingredient to this cocktail, alongside a small EF0 tornado, spawned an extremely rare event known as a Firenado. Watch: Firefighters were able to...
