More than a quadrillion tons of diamonds to be exact - or one thousand times more than one trillion - U.S. researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reported this week. "Diamond in many ways is special", Faul explained. The project to uncover deep Earth diamonds began because scientists were puzzled by observations that sound waves would speed up significantly when passing through the roots of ancient cratons.

The study was made by a team of people from Harvard, MIT and the University of California at Berkeley and it shows that diamonds are not really those rare, exotic minerals, but that they're actually quite common. " One of its special properties is that the sound velocity in diamond is more than twice as fast as in the dominant mineral in upper mantle rocks, olivine ". Consulte Mais Informação

Astronomers just discovered 12 new moons around Jupiter

Incidentally, this brings the total known moons of Jupiter to 79. The Blanco 4-meter telescope Sheppard was using is uniquely suited to spotting potential new moons both because the camera installed on it can photograph a huge area of sky at once and because it's particularly good at blocking stray light from bright objects nearby - say, Jupiter - that might wash out fainter ones.

Ten New Moons Discovered Around Jupiter

Ten New Moons Discovered Around Jupiter

The team first glimpsed the moons in March last year from the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile, but needed more than a year to confirm that the bodies were locked in orbit around the gas giant. As a result, head-on collisions are much more likely to occur between the " oddball " prograde and the retrograde moons, which are moving in opposite directions. Consulte Mais Informação

NASA probe finds indication of another possible volcano on Jupiter’s moon Io

This small Galilean moon - which, according to data from NASA's Juno mission, leaves footprints in Jupiter's aurorae whenever it comes close to the gas giant, the Inquisitr reported last week - is extremely temperamental. Scientists at NASA believe that there could be more than 250 volcanoes which are waiting to be discovered in the Jovian moon. The Juno probe reached Jupiter in July 2016. Consulte Mais Informação

NASA sees 'spiders' crawling across Mars landscape

NASA sees 'spiders' crawling across Mars landscape

Over the last decade, we've been able to explore some of the uncanny scenery on the Red Planet thanks to NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), which has been circling our planetary neighbor since 2006. The dark spots in the image, meanwhile, are formed by dust deposited around vents where the Carbon dioxide erupts. The loss of the sublimated carbon dioxide results in the spider-like features in the surface. Consulte Mais Informação
