Methane Plumes on Saturn’s Moon Likely a Good Sign of Alien Life

Methane Plumes on Saturn’s Moon Likely a Good Sign of Alien Life

Methane Plumes on Saturn’s Moon Likely a Good Sign of Alien Life An unknown methane-producing process is likely at work in the hidden ocean beneath the icy shell of Saturn’s moon Enceladus, suggests a new study published in Nature Astronomy by scientists at the University of Arizona and Paris Sciences & Lettres University. Giant water plumes erupting from Enceladus have […]

‘Bathtub rings’ around Titan’s lakes might be made of alien crystals

'Bathtub rings' around Titan's lakes might be made of alien crystals

‘Bathtub rings’ around Titan’s lakes might be made of alien crystals Titan is a weird place. Bigger than the planet Mercury, it has an atmosphere, and it rains and snows. There are liquid lakes and oceans of methane and ethane on the surface, but of water underground. Titan also has strange minerals that don’t exist on Earth, according to research […]

Sediments from Lake in Japan Reveal Stable Climate Led to Origin of Agriculture

Sediments from Lake in Japan Reveal Stable Climate Led to Origin of Agriculture The advent of agriculture was a significant turning point in the history of modern humans, beyond which humans started living a sedentary life and formed a so-called “civilization.” However, the environmental factors responsible for this revolutionary change in human lifestyle have been unclear for quite a long. […]

Methane Plumes on Saturn’s Moon Likely a Good Sign of Alien Life

Methane Plumes on Saturn’s Moon Likely a Good Sign of Alien Life A study published in Nature Astronomy concludes that known geochemical processes can’t explain the levels of methane measured by the Cassini spacecraft on Saturn’s icy moon. An unknown methane-producing process is likely at work in the hidden ocean beneath the icy shell of Saturn’s moon Enceladus, suggests a […]

Our galaxy could have at least 36 intelligent alien civilizations, researchers say

Our galaxy could have at least 36 intelligent alien civilizations, researchers say Humans have long suspected that we are not alone in the universe, and now scientists have said there may be dozens of alien civilizations lurking not too far from Earth. Some of them may even be advanced enough to communicate with us. According to a new study in The Astrophysical […]

Astronomers Detect Isotopes in Distant Alien World’s Atmosphere–10 Reasons Why This Is Huge

Astronomers Detect Isotopes in Distant Alien World’s Atmosphere–10 Reasons Why This Is Huge

Astronomers Detect Isotopes in Distant Alien World’s Atmosphere–10 Reasons Why This Is Huge By monitoring the cosmos with a radio telescope array, a Cornell University-led international team of scientists has detected radio bursts emanating from the constellation Boötes. The signal could be the first radio emission collected from a planet beyond our solar system. The team, led by Cornell postdoctoral […]

Leading Astronomer Says “Higher Forms” of Alien Life on Jupiter’s Moon Europa

Leading Astronomer Says “Higher Forms” of Alien Life on Jupiter’s Moon Europa

Leading Astronomer Says “Higher Forms” of Alien Life on Jupiter’s Moon Europa In the hunt for life outside Earth, Mars is old news. “I think I’d rate Enceladus now over Europa, and there were people who were saying Europa was a better prospect than Mars,” said Seth Shostak, the senior astronomer of the SETI Institute, a nonprofit organization near San […]

Archaeologists use tooth enamel protein to show sex of human remains

Archaeologists use tooth enamel protein to show sex of human remains

Archaeologists use tooth enamel protein to show sex of human remains The study of an archaeological site in Northern California uses a new method for estimating the biological sex of human remains based on reading protein sequences rather than DNA. The work is published in Scientific Reports on 17 July.  The protein-based technique gave superior results to DNA analysis in studying […]
