THE ICE IN SPACE MIGHT FLOW LIKE HONEY AND BUBBLE UP LIKE CHAMPAGNE

Radiation can make the ice act like a liquid which favours the growth of organic molecules. The researchers from Hokkaido University in Sapporo, Japan found that ice in space behaves like a liquid at -2100C and -1200C temperature range. This favours the formation of the organic compounds that include prebiotic molecules along with dust for the formation of planets.

NASA’S CASSINI AIRCRAFT DIVES INTO SATURN

Cassini is the spacecraft sent by NASA on Saturn. The spacecraft Cassini ended its 20-year-old mission after a final death dive into Saturn. To celebrate the last moments of Cassini, the officials and scientists from NASA gathered together at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California.

HOW DID LIFE BEGIN?

Scientists do not have a definite answer to that but they do know that Earth’s atmosphere in the ancient times was extremely different from the present time. After conduction of various experiments, scientists have deduced the fact that the Earth’s atmosphere has changed over time to accumulate life.

THE BASICS OF ORGANIC NOMENCLATURE

Organic compounds are being discovered in large numbers with every passing day.

METHANE EATING MICROBES MIGHT KEEP THE CLIMATE WARMING GASES AWAY

It is found that there is an existence of microbes that can help us manage the green house gases, deep below the sheet of the Antarctic ice sheet.

WHAT IS METHANE?

Methane gas is used as a common fuel source and is the primary component of a natural gas. It is extremely important to be careful while dealing with it since if the methane is allowed to leak into the air before getting used; it absorbs the light of the sun and warms up the atmosphere. For this very reason itself, it is known to be a greenhouse gas.
