"Finding the most metal-poor galaxy ever is exciting since it could help contribute to a quantitative test of the Big Bang," said John J. Salzer at Indiana University. "There are relatively few ways to explore conditions at the birth of...
On April 25, 2015 at 11:56 local time, part of the tectonic boundary between India and the rest of Eurasia began to slip, sending powerful earthquake waves to Nepal’s capital city of Kathmandu just 50 miles away. While this earthquake spread damage throughout the region beyond Nepal, it did not destroy the capital. USGS scientists were surprised at how well the city and the surrounding valley fared -- in contrast to the devastation in rural areas -- and are looking for lessons that could help reduce future earthquake losses in Nepal and elsewhere.
Earlier this week, an expert from the Southern California Earthquake Center spoke at a conference in Long Beach and called the southern San Andreas fault "locked, loaded and ready to go" for a major 'quake. He said that people should be preparing for something around a magnitude 8.0—that's larger than the devastating San Francisco earthquake back in 1906, the LA Times notes, and that one caused about 3,000 deaths from both the shaking and the fires that followed (which LA's former earthquake czar Lucy Jones has said we should be worried about).
What would an earthquake that big even look like? How would it move and where could we expect the shaking to be felt? For that, there's a video from the SCEC that shows where the movement would occur and how far away it could be felt in the event of a 'quake that starts near San Luis Obispo and moves south along the fault.
The idea that the young Earth had a thicker atmosphere turns out to be wrong. New research from the University of Washington uses bubbles trapped in 2.7 billion-year-old rocks to show that air at that time exerted at mos
Fairmont Ridge is the grassy upland that forms the backdrop to San Leandro. As it happens, East Bay Regional Park District owns much of it as part of Lake Chabot Regional Park. It has some rocks, which I’ll show first, and also some fine views.
The rout in crude prices is snowballing into one of the biggest avalanches in the history of corporate America, with 59 oil and gas companies now bankrupt after this week's filings for creditor protection by Midstates Petroleum and Ultra Petroleum.

A massive sinkhole has burst open on a residential street in London - swallowing up a parked family car. Woodland Terrace in Charlton in the south east of the city has been closed after the road's surface gave way overnight following 24 hours of heavy rainfall.
On occasion, we are reminded of how utterly captivating and gorgeous nature is, its visual poetry surrounds us. It just takes a step back, a shift in perspective, to realize how amazing the constructs of this planet are; it’s a beautiful constant balance between order and entropy. Case in point, what appears to be well-crafted, intricate abstract paintings, or works of art, are in reality, mindblowing aerial images of Iceland."
Tougher environmental regulations, a flood of cheap natural gas from fracking, and a sudden decrease in demand from China, has pushed natural gas even further in replacing coal in generating electricity. But fears about fracking’s effects on the environment has spawned bans on fracking in some states. A new study by the University of Texas at Arlington demonstrates that groundwater quality changes alongside the expansion of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing but also suggests that some potentially hazardous effects may dissipate over time.
