NASA plans to launch five Earth science missions in 2014, which marks the busiest launch program in more than a decade. The NASA Earth science researchers plan to use satellites and aircraft to find information regarding issues such as climate change, sea level, fresh water and extreme weather event...
How ironic is it that Iceland is a leading researcher in the realm of geothermal resources? They've engineered the world's first geothermal system that supplies heat directly from molten magma.
Massive planets called "super-Earths" are common in our galaxy, the Milky Way. Now, though, scientists have found that these planets are far more likely to have an Earth-like climate than previously thought.
