    CNN's Chris Cuomo shared a fawning and cringeworthy exchange with Don Lemon as they praised each other's kindness and friendship while ignoring revelations Chris advised his disgraced brother Andrew on his response to the former governor's sex harassment scandal. Bombshell documents released on Monday by the office of the New York Attorney General, Letitia James, show that Chris exchanged dozens of text messages with his brother Andrew's top aide, Melissa DeRosa. Chris Cuomo had told investigators under oath that they only had 'irregular contact.' Meanwhile, Chris and Lemon said Monday they were thankful for each other's presence in their lives as they discussed their respective Thanksgivings in a hand-off branded 'nauseating' by viewers.  Lemon told his co-host: 'It's good to see you, I know you had a great Thanksgiving, I hope you did. I missed you.  'I'm grateful for your friendship and your love. I think you're fantastic, one of the kindest people I know on this planet. 'There you go, I meant every word.' Cuomo replied: 'I'm thankful for you in my life, it was great to see you having...
    SCIENTISTS are incredibly using the winds on Mars to map out the first complete picture of how it was formed three billion years ago. The team used instruments onboard NASA's InSight lander probe to install a seismometer to determine what lies below the surface of the red planet. 1Researchers have been able to investigate what lies beneath the surface on MarsCredit: ETH Zurich The Swiss Seismological Service (SED) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH) have analyzed 'marsquakes' rippling through the planet since 2018. After gaining an understanding of the makeup of Mars' core, its mantle and the thickness of its crust, they have now been able to go one step further. The researchers have managed to glance below the planet's surface and into three billion years of history by listening to the sound of wind reverberating through the layers of soil and rock near the planet's equator. The Swiss geophysicists used the lander's sensitive instruments to measure vibrations on the surface which ripple deep below. Cedric Schmelzbach, of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich...
    For a very long time, humans have been trying to find a planet like Earth. While that effort may seem too dark, some are optimistic about the next best thing, our neighboring planet Mars. NASA read more: NASA Curiosity rover discovers unknown organic molecules on Mars Whether it’s NASA scientists or Elon Musk, Mars looks like the next leap in the human space effort. Now, A new research It reveals how mankind can achieve life on that planet. It is no secret that for Mars to thrive on human existence, it must be terrestrial. The researchers, in their latest study, shared some ideas on what really needs to be done. Unlike Mars, Earth has a strong magnetic field. But the magnetic field of Mars is rarely pulled. Achieve deraforming first by increasing the atmospheric pressure above the Armstrong range – The gateway that allows humans to survive without pressure clothing. If you are wondering how much we really need this magnetic field, it is no more than a refrigerator magnet, but it should be created all over the planet, it...
    Lady Gaga has shed light on her friend and collaborator Tony Bennett's 'heartbreaking' Alzheimer’s battle. Speaking to Zoe Ball on her Radio 1 show on Tuesday morning, The House Of Gucci star, 35, reflected on the pain of watching his battle and spoke of how they recorded their duets album after her was diagnosed with the condition.  It was revealed in February that Tony, 95, has the progressive neurologic disorder and had been secretly living with the disease since 2016, yet the news did not stop the release of his new music and performances with Gaga.  Her love: Lady Gaga has shed light on her friend and collaborator Tony Bennett's 'heartbreaking' Alzheimer’s battle While blazing the promo trail for Ridley Scott's House Of Gucci, Gaga appeared on the radio show on Tuesday where Zoe played her duet I’ve Got You Under My Skin.  Radio legend Zoe then asked the star: 'How is Tony?

The images were taken as part of the Outer Planets Atmospheres Legacy program (OPAL) and were snapped in September and October.  The September 4 photo shows the...
    (CNN)This year, we've watched the story of a little chopper unfold on another planet. And much like the joy brought by the successful landing of the Perseverance rover on Mars in February, the journey of its Ingenuity helicopter sidekick is just what we needed in 2021.From millions of miles away, we've looked to the red planet as a distraction from our woes as we live through the second year of a pandemic. Meanwhile, two robots are achieving what was once thought to be impossible on Mars. It's easy to project our hopes on them, envision them as two robot pals playing out some buddy cop scenario. Their discoveries bring us wonder. Their successes are worth celebrating. And they send back stunning postcards from a rust-colored world. Ingenuity was built and is powered by the same human trait from which it takes its name. Thousands of dedicated, hardworking and creative people worked for years to make it a reality. When I ask scientists if they ever imagined a helicopter flying on Mars, most of them say no -- but they are...
    New York (CNN Business)Rivian, a 12-year-old startup that's never sold a single vehicle, is now the third most valuable carmaker in the world. The electric vehicle maker has been public for all of one week, but its share price has more than doubled in that time, valuing Rivian at more than $140 billion — just ahead of Volkswagen ($139 billion), and in third place behind Toyota ($306 billion) and Tesla ($1 trillion). On Tuesday, the stock opened 6% higher, at about $159 a share. When the company debuted last week, it priced its shares at $78. Even though Rivian hasn't brought any of its electric trucks to market, it's ginned up major investor interest with prominent backing from Amazon, which bought a 20% stake in 2019, and Ford (F). Jeff Bezos is a big fan, and has been seen shuttling his fellow space explorers to and from Blue Origin's West Texas launch site in Rivian's signature truck.

    Stepping furtively through the streets of Paris, her face mysteriously shrouded, the figure in the heavy shawl was bound to attract attention – and so it proved. For this was just months after the suicide of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. And the woman who seemed so anxious to avoid attention bore a remarkable resemblance to Epstein’s former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell – now the most hunted woman on the planet. Had she fled from America to France? From the moment Epstein was found dead in his New York cell in August 2019, the focus of attention turned to longtime associate Ghislaine, even though she had never been charged with any crime. Victims of Epstein accused her of being a ‘madam’ – claims she vehemently denies and will vigorously contest in court when her trial begins later this month.

    A stunning photograph of Jupiter captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft has revealed 'mocha swirls' of clouds in the gas giant's mid-southern latitudes. Juno — which is to continue studying Jupiter's atmosphere until 2025 — caught the breathtaking view during its 36th low pass over the fifth planet in our solar system. The circular vortex near the centre of the image is a vast cyclone that spans some 250 miles (400 kilometres) across. Its colour is the result of how descending winds in the cyclone clear away the upper-level clouds, revealing some of the darker material from below.

    Heinz has made a version of its famous ketchup from tomatoes grown in Mars-like soil, in an effort to understand how humans might one day live on the Red Planet. Unlike soil on Earth, Martian regolith, as it is known, is much harsher for crops, as it is devoid of any significant amount of organic matter, and Mars itself gets far less sunlight, so the team had to find new techniques to improve growth rates.  One day humans on Mars will have to grow their own food in Martian soil, as seen in the movie The Martian, starring Matt Damon, where he grows potatoes, and for this project they had to create a Mars-like greenhouse and simulated Martian soil. They created tomatoes that Heinz turned into Ketchup, and say the techniques could be used to grow crops on Earth as conditions get harsher due to climate change. Former NASA astronaut, and self proclaimed ketchup superfan, Mike Massimino, told MailOnline that in space 'it is all about the sauce,' adding that having a 'familiar taste when you're so far away from...
    TOMATOES can be grown on Mars, scientists have found - meaning we can still have ketchup on the Red Planet. Experts at Florida’s Aldrin Space Institute were able to cultivate the crop in a biodome that simulated Mars’s harsh environment, including its dusty “soil”. 4Scientists have successfully grown ketchup tomatoes in Mars-like conditionsCredit: Heinz The two-year experiment, sponsored by sauce giant Heinz, fuels hopes that humans will be able to colonise other galaxies - and take our favourite foods with us. Prof Andrew Palmer said: ”If we are to sustain life on other planets, we need to be able to understand how we can grow and produce food long-term, using the tools we will have available to us. “The soil we use on Earth is full of microbes and fungi that make growing easier. Mars’s regolith (soil) has a very different make-up. “Achieving a crop that is of a quality to become Heinz ketchup was the dream result. It has allowed us to see what the possibilities are for long-term food production beyond Earth. “There is much we can learn...

    Of course on social networks you have seen the yellow photo that is said to have been taken on the surface of Venus. Some users claim that this is the original photo and that it looks like this due to the high temperature and density of the atmosphere, but that is not entirely true. So isn’t this the surface of Venus? Is the photo fake? The official Willis will say in the famous morning section, this is not a lie, but it is also not true. Photo: Twitter Only photos of Venus The truth is, there are photos of the surface of Venus, the second planet after the Sun. The point is, they are not so sharp, complete, or colored. The first man-made photographs of Venus were taken on October 22, 1975, after the Russian Venera-9 spacecraft landed in the Northern Hemisphere. As stated in it Russian Federal Space Agency, The ship was launched on June 8, 1875 with a special thermal shield. However, after landing on the surface, it sent information 53 minutes before it melted and lost...
    China is working on a 'complex mission' to take samples of rock and dust from Mars and bring them back to Earth by the end of this decade.   The China National Space Administration (CNSA) mission will build on the success of its mission to return moon rocks to Earth, and the ongoing Tianwen-1 Mars rover mission, currently searching for signs of life on the Red Planet. Named Tianwen-2, it could launch as early as 2028, according to Zhang Rongqiao, chief designer of Tianwen-1, speaking at the Deep Space Forum in Shenzhen. It would be like no other mission that has come before it, Rongqiao suggested, adding it would involve a pair of rocket launches to send a drill and a orbiter. A joint NASA and European Space Agency (ESA) mission hopes to have Martian rocks on Earth by 2031, but China hopes to beat them to that goal, returning in 2030.  China is working on a 'complex mission' to take samples of rock and dust from Mars and bring them back to Earth by the end of this decade  A joint NASA and...

    NASA's Perseverance rover has been on the Red Planet for more than 250 days and it has now found layered rocks on Mars. The rover, which left Earth on February 18, is looking at a part of the Jezero Crater that may have formed as a result of the presence of water. 'Layered rocks like this often form in water, and can hold clues about what their environment used to be like,' the space agency wrote on Twitter. Perseverance will take out its abrading tool — used to cut rocks — to go in for a closer inspection.

    It is possible for the desert-world of Arrakis, featured in the Dune movie and novels, to be habitable to humans, according to a climate study of the fictional planet.  Frank Herbert wrote Dune in 1965, conjuring up the richly-detailed world of Arrakis, a sparsely populated desert wasteland with temperatures reaching 158 degrees Fahrenheit (70C), that has no natural rain or bodies of surface water.  Using these details, climate scientists, from the University of Bristol and the University of Sheffield, created models to see if it could host human life. 'We wanted to know if the physics and environment of such a world would stack up against a real climate model,' they wrote in The Conversation.  The team fed various data points into a system, and found it would have whispery clouds over the desert-landscape, with thick patches around the poles and equator.  'We were very pleased to discover Herbert had envisioned an environment that for the most part meets expectations,' they said, adding 'we might need to occasionally suspend disbelief, but much of Arrakis itself would indeed be habitable.' Timothee Chalamet,...
    NASA's Curiosity rover has discovered previously unknown organic molecules, ammonia and benzoic acid, on Mars that could be possible indicators of ancient life. The findings stem from a new technique used by the American space agency in 2017 when the rover's drill stopped working, but the team re-routed Curiosity  to place dirt samples into cups pre-filled with a chemical mixture instead of the typical empty containers. The dirt showed traces of benzoic acid and ammonia, both of which occur naturally in plants and animals, including humans. The molecules are not biosignatures, evidence of past or present life, but according Maëva Millan, a postdoctoral fellow at NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center, they are good indicators of the presence of biosignatures. 'One of the things that we were trying to look for [when searching for] organic molecule on Mars is to understand the past habitability of Mars and to look for bioindicators,' Millan told Inverse.

    Britain called Wednesday for the world's financial industry to channel its vast funds toward greener investments to ensure that global efforts to curb global warming succeed.  Treasury chief Rishi Sunak said that while the U.K. government is providing fresh financing to help poor countries cope with climate change, "public investment alone isn’t enough."  Speaking at the U.N. climate summit in the Scottish city of Glasgow, Sunak said U.K. financial institutions and publicly traded companies will be required to publish plans detailing how green their investments and their own businesses are — in order to ensure they're actually contributing to reductions in global warming.  NASA STUDY: CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACT ON WORLD’S CROPS EXPECTED WITHIN NEXT DECADE  Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak makes a speech at the COP26 U.N.

    Zimbabweans have been spotted stocking up on booze and snacks to celebrate the arrival of their president at the Cop26 climate summit. In pictures shared by the country's information minister, two men are seen pushing trollies filled to the brim with bottles of whisky, wine, beer and crisps at a Costco store in Glasgow. Video shows the men, sporting scarfs with the Zimbabwean colours, wheeling the packed trollies out of the store while saying 'Cop26 we are ready'.  Another of the men is heard saying: 'We are welcoming the president Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa in Scotland, UK'. The video was shared by Zimbabwe's Information Minister, Nick Mangwana, who also Tweeted a video of men and women dancing on a beach as music plays.   But while the video shows a joyful celebration, Zimbabweans have questioned the pictures, with some suggesting it to be a propaganda push by Government officials.  Others say the video is 'sending the wrong message' about the Cop26 conference, which is bringing together leaders from around the world to try and come up with solutions to tackle climate change....
    (CNN)An arid region of open forests and grasslands spanning three countries and more than a quarter of a million square miles, this is Gran Chaco. It's the second-largest forest in South America after the Amazon, but has long been neglected, suffering from deforestation, agricultural expansion and the effects of climate change. When Bolivian conservation biologist Erika Cuéllar first saw the vast expanse in 1997, she was overcome by an urge to restore it. "I am very attracted to arid lands. When I was young, I was angry that nobody cared about dry lands and everybody cared about tropical rainforest," she says. Despite looking open and empty, the area is teeming with unique vegetation and wildlife, from jaguars and ocelots to piranhas and vipers. It's also home to nine million people, including several indigenous communities. Cuéllar took an original approach to restoration, enlisting local people and giving them technical training to become "parabiologists" -- like paramedics, she says, but for nature. Her efforts have helped to create sustainable conservation in the region, outlawing the hunting of guanacos (an animal closely related...
    COP26 President Alok Sharma in his inaugural address declared the summit as “the last and best hope” to control global warming to 1.5 ° C, the world’s most ambitious goal. Paris Agreement. On the first day of the two-week conference, which is considered important for the future of humanity, during the COVID-19 epidemic, “climate change continued,” Sharma said. Sharma said the effects of climate change are beginning to appear around the world in the form of “floods, hurricanes, wildfires and record temperatures”. “We know our planet is changing for the worse,” he said at the start of the conference, adding that climate change lasted during the Covid 19 epidemics, thus postponing the meeting for a year. If we act now and work together, we can protect our precious planet, he said. Experts say the only solution is to take decisive action over the next 10 years to reduce the catastrophic effects. COP takes its goal from the 2015 Paris Agreement, which agreed to control global warming to 2 degrees Celsius and, if possible, 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to...
    The British government may seek to impose carbon taxes on the food industry which could see the price of meat and dairy climb even further in a bid to tackle supposedly man-made climate change. The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Secretary George Eustice said that the UK would explore carbon taxes after the EU agricultural subsidies are phased out in 2027. “We’ve got seven years [until EU subsidies are phased out] where we’re going to completely reorientate the way we support agriculture,” Mr Eustice told The Telegraph. “The question, really, is beyond that, where you start to move into the realms of things like carbon taxes. We need to do the thinking about it now, but we would ideally get the rest of the world to go in a similar direction,” the minister added. The farming secretary said that border carbon taxes could also be used to “encourage countries like Australia, like New Zealand, to tackle their own greenhouse gas emissions”. “If there are other countries in the world that don’t pull their weight, and don’t do their share, you...
    NASA / JPL-Caltech / SwRI / MSSS / Gerald Eichstadt / Sein Doran Jupiter’s red dot Follow RT Information sent by the Juno spacecraft indicates that Jupiter’s red dot is a 16,000-kilometer storm in the planet’s atmosphere. The scientific journal notes that the depth of the storm is greater than previously thought, and that its location may be related to the irregularity of the planet’s gravitational pull. read more The Juno spacecraft, which has been orbiting Jupiter since 2016, is set to explore the planet’s gravitational and magnetic fields, study its atmosphere, and verify the hypothesis that the planet has a solid core. Jupiter’s atmosphere is characterized by severe storms and swirling wind systems, the largest and most intense being the Great Red Spot, which is in a continuous cyclical motion that could engulf the entire planet. It is not known whether this is limited to the upper layers of the planet’s atmosphere or to the deeper layers. Using microwave and gravity measuring equipment installed on the Juno spacecraft, scientists were able to penetrate...
    As the United Nation’s COP26 summit gets underway on Sunday, a lone voice is pushing back on the existential threat of so-called climate change and most of the left-wing media, who will provide non-stop doomsday warnings. That voice is Bjorn Lomborg, a Dane who is president of the Copenhagen Consensus and a visiting fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institute, “a public policy think tank promoting the principles of individual, economic, and political freedom.” Lomborg’s latest book is False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet. The Wall Street Journal is publishing commentaries from Lomborg leading up to and during the United Nation’s event where leaders from around the world, including President Joe Biden and 13 members of his cabinet, will call for making climate change the greatest threat facing humanity and the planet: Looking at much of the media reporting ahead of this week’s climate conference in Glasgow, you’d think the world was subject to biblical plagues—blasted by fires, floods, hurricanes, drought and disease. But as Bjorn Lomborg has explained...
    Scientists have provided the most detailed map yet of Uranus, the seventh planet in our solar system, with its mysterious auroras.  Experts at the University of Leicester led three days of observations of the planet earlier this month, using NASA's Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF) in Hawaii. The project mapped the planet in the infrared part of the light spectrum, including the aurora on both the planet's poles.  Stunning video based on telescope data shows the gleaming aurora – a spectacular natural light show caused by the Sun.  Experts at the University of Leicester led three days of observations of Uranus earlier in October. Pictured is a map of the planet as it rotates with the location of auroras  Uranus, known as the 'ice giant', is 31,000 miles (50,000 kilometres) across and orbits 1.6 billion miles (2.6 billion kilometers) from Earth.

    Boris Johnson joked to children that humans could be fed to animals to help the planet today. The PM made the quip as he faced a grilling from youngsters about his environmental plans in the £2.6million Downing Street briefing room. Facing a crowd of youngsters he made the lighthearted jest in relation to address the imbalance in nature, where humans and domesticated animals make up the vast majority of mammals on the planet. In a more serious note he also admitted he was worried that the UN Cop26 climate conference will be a failure. The Prime Minister will welcome world leaders to Glasgow for the summit but said it was 'touch and go' whether key goals would be met.  He also lashed out at Coca Cola over plastics and said he does not 'want to support new coal mines', as ministers face pressure to prevent a site opening in Cumbria.  The PM was taking questions with WWF UK's Tanya Steele in No9 Downing Street when they faced a question about the balance of nature on Earth Ms Steele told the children: 'I think...
    ARSENE WENGER labelled Mo Salah the best forward on the planet. And that was even before his record-breaking night away at Atletico Madrid. 2Arsene Wenger reckons Mo Salah is the best attacker in the world right nowCredit: Getty 2The former Arsenal manager made the comments before Salah's record-breaking night in the Champions LeagueCredit: Getty Salah scored twice in the dramatic 3-2 win in the Wanda Metropolitano. And that meant the Egyptian became the first Liverpool player EVER to score in nine consecutive games. And he also leapfrogged Steven Gerrard to become the top scorer in the Champions League for the Reds with 31 goals. But ahead of kick-off on Tuesday evening, ex-Arsenal boss Wenger was singing the praises of the former Chelsea and Roma man. The Frenchman, appearing as a pundit on beIN Sports, said: "He’s top, top class and he’s certainly the best striker at the moment in the world because he scores goals that nobody else can score. "You have to play street football to dribble past people like that in a short space. MOST WANTED...
    Japanese astronomers captured footage of a potential impact on Jupiter, just a little more than a month since a similar incident was observed. A team, led by Ko Arimatsu of Kyoto University, released footage of a mysterious bright light appearing on the gas giant for about four seconds on October 15. The event occurred in Jupiter's North Tropical Zone near the southern edge of the North Temperate Belt. If the bright light is confirmed as an impact, it would be the ninth to be captured by the human eye – the last was observed on September 13.

    NASA's Perseverance rover has been recording the 'eerie sounds of Mars' since it arrived in February, including the crunch of its wheels and the Ingenuity helicopter. Sounds from the Red Planet have been made possible thanks to a pair of microphones on the rover that make it like 'you're really standing there,' NASA says. The rover has been trundling in the Jezero crater for eight months, searching for signs of ancient life, while also taking stunning photographs and recording sound.  Perseverance is the first craft to record the sound of the Red Planet, and as well as letting us hear wind on another world, it provides information on the atmosphere. Analysing the sounds of Mars revealed it has 'strong bass vibrations,' say researchers from L'Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planétologie in Toulouse, France.  Audio recordings have also helped NASA engineers monitor the engines, wheels and general running of both Perseverance and the Ingenuity helicopter.

    William Shatner appeared on Cuomo Prime Time to talk about his brief visit to space earlier this week. At 90, he became the oldest person to do so, blasting off in a rocket owned by Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin aerospace company. “When I saw the bright blue covering of Earth that’s only 50 miles wide,” said Shatner, “and we plunged through at 2,500 miles an hour, broke through it, then all of a sudden like a punch in the face there was the blackness of space. And none of the mystery of the twinkling stars, the galaxies, just pure blackness. Because the sun was in my face and the wind, whatever the reasons were. Space is cold and ominous and ugly, and it really threatens death. There’s death there. And you look down, and there’s this warm, nurturing planet.” Becoming increasingly melancholic, the actor added, That’s death up there and life down here. And between the two, ruining this planet as we are, we’re on the verge – to bring you the ‘good’ news – that we’re at the tipping...
    This week, 60 years after President John F. Kennedy launched the race to the moon — and formally initiated the advent of the space age — William Shatner, at the grand old age of 90, made his own trip to the final frontier. Shatner, who played James T. Kirk, captain of the USS Enterprise in the iconic 1960s TV series Star Trek, has been lauded worldwide for his successful bid to ‘oldly go’ where no one his age has been before. However, one high-profile observer was less than impressed, and barely had Shatner made it back to Earth, than he was making his feelings known. In an unprecedented move, Prince William attacked the ‘space tourism’ now being developed by the world’s richest men — of which Shatner was beneficiary — as a waste of resources. In doing so, he was underlining the Royal Family’s position as perhaps Britain’s most effective environmental pressure group, a position that was reinforced less than 24 hours later by the Queen’s comments about those who talk about protecting the environment ‘. . . but they...
    Considering the upcoming missions to Mars, the astronauts are training in environments like Planet Earth. In recent days, as many online newspapers have reported these hours, a simulation of a trip to Mars took place in Maktesh Ramon, the largest crater with ecological properties similar to the red planet. Mars in the Negro Desert: Details (Photo by Roynews) The land is really colored Red, especially dry and slightly watery, Because it is located Deserto del Negev. The experiment was specifically organized by the Austrian Space Forum (SASIK), as Roy News writes, in collaboration with the Israeli Space Agency (ISA). What is it about?

    Venus has long been thought of as a 'dead' planet, but new missions to Earth's 'evil twin' could soon reveal whether it is very much alive and still geologically active. Not only that, but one of the key questions scientists hope to answer is if Venus ever harboured oceans shortly after its birth 4.5 billion years ago. Earth has had oceans for nearly four billion years and Mars had lakes and rivers 3.5 –3.8 billion years ago.  But it is still a mystery as to whether water has ever condensed on the surface of Venus because the planet — which is now completely dry — has undergone global resurfacing events that obscure most of its history.  According to new research, however, it appears unlikely — which would also cast doubt on whether Earth's nearest neighbour could ever have hosted life. A team of astrophysicists led by the University of Geneva and the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) PlanetS, Switzerland created a climate model to replicate what conditions would have been like on a young Venus. It suggests that the...
    By Siddharth Joshi, James Glynn, and Shivika Mittal Rooftop solar panels are up to 79 percent cheaper than they were in 2010. These plummeting costs have made rooftop solar photovoltaics even more attractive to households and businesses who want to reduce their reliance on electricity grids while reducing their carbon footprints. But are there enough rooftop surfaces for this technology to generate affordable, low-carbon energy for everyone who needs it? After all, it’s not just people who own their own houses and want to cut their bills who are in need of solutions like this. Around 800 million people globally go without proper access to electricity. Our new paper in Nature Communications presents a global assessment of how many rooftop solar panels we’d need to generate enough renewable energy for the whole world—and where we’d need to put them. Our study is the first to provide such a detailed map of global rooftop solar potential, assessing rooftop area and sunlight cover at scales all the way from cities to continents. We found that we would only need 50 percent...
    A Washington DC city employee has died after she was shot dead in a Planet Fitness gym parking lot by a man who later killed himself after going on the run. Nikiesha Thomas, 33, was sat in her car on Thursday morning at 9.25am when suspect Antoine Oliver, 36, ran up to the parked vehicle and fired at least one shot through the car window in the 3200 block of Pennsylvania Avenue SE, Washington DC. Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement Oliver fled the parking lot before carjacking a maroon SUV in Prince George's County.  Officers were called to the armed carjacking near Minnesota Avenue and East Capitol Street, Northeast, at 12.49pm, but police said when cops stopped the stolen vehicle, Oliver took out a firearm and shot himself inside the car.   Nikiesha Thomas died after she was shot in the head in a Planet Fitness gym parking lot by a man who later killed himself after going on the run.

    New photographs released by NASA indicate that certain zones on Mars could host signs of alien life. Geologists found vital organic compounds in specific zones of the Jezero crater which houses an ancient river delta — near where the Perseverance rover is stationed — that could hold fossilized evidence of extraterrestrial life. Researchers, on Thursday, published photos in the Journal of Science that were taken by the Perseverance rover and indicate ways that water once flowed on the planet billions of years ago. Perseverance captured photos of a rock formation now known as Kodiak Butte that 'indicates ... a closed lake system, under fluctuating water levels and changing styles of flow during later stages'. Scientists say this new finding provides an 'unprecedented datapoint' that will guide NASA's decisions regarding further investigation of the planet.

    Venus's surface may be too extreme for life to survive, but sunlight coming through the planet's thick clouds could support photosynthesis, resulting in the existence of microorganisms, a new study suggests. Researchers at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona have found evidence that photosynthesis, the process which plants use to turn water and sunlight into food, could occur all day. It may even happen at night, due to the levels of thermal or infrared energy emanating from the planet's surface and atmosphere. Sunlight coming through Venus's clouds could support photosynthesis, resulting in the existence of microorganisms In essence, light energy would be available from both below and above the clouds, giving any potential microorganisms the ability to live in different cloud layers.

    Boris Johnson will tonight warn world leaders they need to ‘grow up’ on climate change or risk making the world ‘uninhabitable’. In a hard-hitting speech to the UN General Assembly in New York, the Prime Minister will warn that mankind cannot continue to act as if ‘someone else will clear up the mess we make’. Mr Johnson, once a climate change sceptic, will warn that failure to take dramatic action at the Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow in November will put the human race on the road to ‘extinction’. Joe Biden yesterday threw Mr Johnson a lifeline in his bid to create a £73billion ($100billion) climate fund to help developing countries cut their emissions. The President doubled the US contribution to £8.2billion ($11.2billion). But government sources said a string of other countries – including France, Italy, Spain and Canada – still need to ‘step up to the plate’. Boris Johnson (pictured today with US President Joe Biden) will tonight warn world leaders they need to ‘grow up’ on climate change or risk making the world ‘uninhabitable’ In tonight’s speech, the...
    Check out our must-buy plant-based cookbooks! Learn more As fashion week takes center stage and hundreds of fashion houses display their new collections, it’s easy to get lost in the excitement of new prints, fabrics, and statements. What’s the new trend this season? Are we going for minimalist or maximalist? What styles will we see trickle down to more affordable brands and become synonymous with the season?  There’s nothing inherently wrong with fashion design. It’s an incredibly creative and exciting industry that has shaped history. However, as the fashion weeks roll by, it’s difficult to ignore how they may be hurting the sustainable fashion movement.  How Fashion Houses Encourage Trend Cycles When we look at fashion in ‘seasons’ we encourage trend cycles and the idea that clothes become old and unimportant after a short period. It’s all about what’s new, and not how we can continue to wear and honor the clothes we already own. Yes, fashion shows – especially from top designers – are considered a form of art, but they are also an advertisement for...
    (CNN)The planet is careening toward warming of 2.7 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels -- far above what scientists say the world should be targeting -- according to a report on global emissions targets by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.Scientists have said that the planet needs to slash 45% off emissions by 2030 to reach carbon neutrality by mid-century. But under current emissions commitments from countries there will be a 16% increase in emissions in 2030 compared to 2010 levels, according to the report.That would lead the planet to warm to 2.7 degrees above pre-industrial levels.Scientists have said global temperatures should remain below 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels to stave off the worse consequences of the climate crisis. A UN report in August showed global temperature is already around 1.2 degrees of warming.In a statement about today's report, UN Secretary-General António Guterres called the planet's current path "catastrophic."Read More"This is breaking the promise made six years ago to pursue the 1.5-degree Celsius goal of the Paris Agreement," Guterres said.

    London (CNN Business)The 30,000 aluminum tins were supposed to show up in a 20-foot shipping container in July. Months later, they haven't arrived — and SJ Hunt, the co-founder of Lavolio, a boutique confectionery in London, is starting to panic.The made-to-order boxes, which Lavolio packs with fruit, nut and jelly-filled chocolates, are a key part of the brand, and Hunt paid top dollar to ensure they'd make it from the manufacturer in East Asia to a port in Suffolk, England.Renting a shipping container for this route usually costs Hunt and partner Lavinia Davolio between $1,500 and $2,000. This time, they had to shell out more than $10,000 — a hefty sum to spend on something that hasn't actually turned up. Its been a nightmare." SJ Hunt, co-founder of Lavolio"The long and short of it is it's been a nightmare, and unprecedented for us," Hunt said.Roughly 18 months into the Covid-19 pandemic, global shipping is still in crisis, with backlogs looming over the peak holiday shopping period. One look at the market for steel shipping containers, and it's clear that a...
    08/31/2021 at 08:05 CEST It was by chance, but a group of scientists has discovered what is the island (rather islet) located more to the north of the planet Earth. “It was not our intention to discover a new island & rdquor ;, said the polar explorer and head of the Arctic station in Greenland, Morten Rasch, about the find made a few weeks ago. “We just went there to collect samples & rdquor ;, he added. On this expedition, the scientists they believed they had reached Oodaaq, an island that had been discovered in 1978 by a research team. But when they later verified the exact location of the terrain in detail, they discovered that they were in a different location, some 780 meters northwest of Oodaaq. The Swiss businesswoman who financed the expedition, Christiane Leister, said that the experience resembled “the explorers of the past, who thought that they had landed in a certain place, when in reality they were in a totally different one. The tiny island is only 30 meters long, with...
    Contrary to what you might think, turning on your computer or mobile and spending time browsing the internet is not a harmless activity. It has a large polluting load, but it depends heavily on websites. Not all of them emit the same amount of emissions into the atmosphere. Can we do something to avoid it? Not at the moment, since you will have to continue with your habits when consuming the internet. But at least we give you the opportunity to know which are the least environmentally friendly websites. An extensive study carried out by WebSiteToolTester, with data collected from this website, yield surprising results. YouTube takes the cake when it comes to CO2 emissions, since it emits 702 million kilos per year. This result is not by chance or because Google wants it to be contaminated. Think about the servers that have to use this site, with a huge amount of video information that is consulted at all times. It is a huge effort and results in such high emissions. Something similar happens with digital multimedia content platforms, such...
    Mars has two satellites: Phobos and Deimos. The search for signs of life on Mars has been going on for years. But so far no sign has been found that the red planet has had life. However, researchers are not giving up and looking for ingenious ways to find remains of life on Mars. For this reason, now it is going to look towards the moons of the neighboring planet. But Why search their moons? The Japanese Space Agency (JAXA) will send a mission to the moon Phobos to bring back samples in 2029. These samples could be the key to finding life on Mars, even if it is orbiting around the planet. And it is that, we know because the same thing happens with the Earth and the Moon, that when an asteroid or meteorite collides with the surface of a planet; dust and loose material end up on the surface of your satellite (s). This is exactly what JAXA wants to find: confirming samples (or reject) the hypothesis that there has been life on Mars. This is the...
    AJ McKee broke all odds by becoming the first fighter to finish the undisputed best fighter in the history of Bellator, Patricio freire, to win the Featherweight belt and win the Featherweight Grand Prix With this in mind, Scott coker, President of BellatorHe is not only sure that McKee, undefeated with an 18-0 record, is the best featherweight in the world, but also, in general terms, the fighter on the planet. Warning “I think he is currently the best in the world,” said Coker during an interview with the Bellator portal (via Ag Fight). «Patricio ‘Pibull’ is a legend of Bellator and MMA. So who can beat him now? It has something different, a shine. He gave one of the best presentations in Bellator history. “ Precisely, McKee only needed one assault to put the ‘Pitbull’ to sleep during the stellar of the Bellator 263, held on July 31. Although it is still unclear what McKee’s next step will be as champion, Freire’s head coach, Eric Albarracin, spoke about the possibility of a title rematch, only in Brazil....
    Mars' largest moon, Phobos, may be the key to answering one of science's greatest questions – was there life on the Red Planet? Scientists from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) suggest asteroids that hit Mars billions of years ago may have sent ancient microbial life to its moon that are now 'dead remains' in its soil. Dr. Ryuki Hydo, who is leading the research, told DailyMail.com in an email: 'Phobos is very unique in terms of its location to the host planet, Mars -- Phobos orbits very close to Mars (~3 times Mars radius). 'As a comparison, the Earth's moon orbits at ~60 times Earth's radius. So, we thought that if Mars has ever had life on it, it could be easily transferred to Phobos without a big impact on Mars that would destroy biosignatures within the ejecta (by impact melting/vaporization).' The research refers to the dead remains as 'SHIGAI' (Sterilized and Harshly Irradiated Genes, and Ancient Imprints), which includes sterilized microorganisms and potential DNA fragments. Hydo and his team are set to launch the Martian Moons eXploration (MMX)...
    NASA's Ingenuity helicopter captured a stunning view of the Martin landscape, and hidden in the image searching for life on Mars is the Perseverance rover.  Driving through Jezero crater at 0.01 miles per hour, the Perseverance rover is taking rock samples and using its on board instruments to find signs of ancient life.  Ingenuity has been helping the rover in its mission, having recently completed its 11th flight on the Red Planet where it captured images of rocks and sand dunes.  Along with capturing the boulders, sand dunes, and rocky outcrops prevalent in the 'South Séítah' region of Jezero Crater, a few of the images capture NASA's Perseverance rover amid its first science campaign. Despite being over 9ft long and weighing more than a tonne, the rover fades into the background of the image, hidden among massive rocks when seen from 39ft up.  Along with capturing the boulders, sand dunes, and rocky outcrops prevalent in the 'South Séítah' region of Jezero Crater, a few of the images capture NASA's Perseverance rover amid its first science campaign - but can...
