New evidence suggests 400-foot tsunamis may have battered the surface of Mars

New evidence suggests 400-foot tsunamis may have battered the surface of Mars Thanks to the sustained efforts of probes like Spirit, Opportunity, and Curiosity, we now have evidence that water did flow on Mars, in significant quantities and amounts.There are significant low-elevation plains in this area of Mars, which would’ve given the water a fairly gently slope to cover.

Some evil mastermind figured out how to deep fry water

Some evil mastermind figured out how to deep fry water Fried food aficionado Jonathan Marcus of Massachusetts has figured out a way to deep fry water, finally giving us a way to get our 64 ounces without sacrificing our taste buds.About a dozen of these balls were given out at the Stupid Shit No One Needs and Terrible Ideas Hackathon 2.

Pluto may still have a subsurface liquid ocean

Not only is the topography unique and the atmosphere cloudy, but Pluto may even have a liquid ocean.A new analysis of Pluto suggests that the subsurface ocean that gave rise to some of its geological anomalies could still be sloshing around down there.

Curiosity’s latest findings suggest Mars’ atmosphere was once much more like ours

Curiosity’s latest findings suggest Mars’ atmosphere was once much more like ours New research from Curiosity suggests that Mars’ atmosphere once contained considerable amounts of oxygen, hinting at a more Earth-like past.Today, Mars’ atmosphere is a thin layer composed almost entirely (96%) of carbon dioxide.

Astronomers discover the first water clouds outside our solar system

Astronomers discover the first water clouds outside our solar system This week, a team of astronomers led out of UC Santa Cruz released a report on the brown dwarf WISE0855, by far the dimmest object ever imaged in its spectral range.Their results confirm a preexisting assumption that brown dwarfs ought to be capable of supporting enough water to create phenomena like water clouds, and greatly invigorate the search for life on these cold, extremely common worlds.

The water on Mars may not be accessible to humans

The water on Mars may not be accessible to humans The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has found evidence that this may not be the only form of water on the planet.Periodic dark features on the Martian surface, known as recurring slope lineae, or RSL, have been interpreted as possible evidence of liquid water.

Mysterious purple orb discovered on the sea floor

Mysterious purple orb discovered on the sea floor It’s easy to believe that when you get a look at this bizarre purple sphere that was recently discovered by researchers from the Nautilus Live project.The purple blob was discovered by Nautilus Live while exploring the sea floor around the Channel Islands off the coast of California.

Squid proteins help create self-healing fabrics

Squid proteins help create self-healing fabrics Different teams of researchers have recently identified interesting self-assembly proteins in the ring teeth of squid.There’s only a very small amount of protein in the ring teeth — about one gram for a 5kg squid.

Nearby exoplanet Proxima b could be a habitable ocean world

Nearby exoplanet Proxima b could be a habitable ocean world That’s not the case with Proxima b, a small exoplanet that orbits the nearest star to our own, Proxima Centauri.Scientists haven’t been able to spot Proxima b transiting its star yet, but a new study of the Proxima Centauri system shows how Proxima b could be a habitable ocean planet.
