NASA Creates Glowing Map That Shows Dust Clouds Across Earth

A version of a NASA model called the Goddard Earth Observing System Forward Processing (GEOS FP) offers a similarly expansive view of the mishmash of particles that dance and swirl through the atmosphere. Like all climate models, the GEOS FP model relies on mathematical equations that represent physical processes to calculate the level of aerosols in our atmosphere at any given time.

Goats prefer smiling human faces to grumpy ones, study finds

Goats prefer smiling human faces to grumpy ones, study finds

Goats can distinguish smiling human faces from frowning ones on photos, and actively seek out snapshots of happier individuals, a study said Wednesday. Instead, it seems, animals domesticated for food production, such as goats, can also decipher human facial cues. The study of emotion perception has already revealed complex capabilities in dogs and horses, says co-author Natalia Albuquerque, from the University of Sao Paulo. Consulte Mais Informação

Scientists observe decay of Higgs boson particle into two bottom quarks

Scientists observe decay of Higgs boson particle into two bottom quarks

They're transformed into bottom quarks , they announced today. The hypothesis of the Standard Model is that the quantum field of the Higgs Boson particle gives mass to the bottom quark and other fundamental particles. And that's just the start. "Since the first single-experiment observation of the Higgs boson decay to tau-leptons one year ago, CMS, along with our colleagues in ATLAS, has observed the coupling of the Higgs boson to the heaviest fermions: the tau, the top quark , and ...

Ancient turtle had a frisbee-shaped body - but no shell

Ancient turtle had a frisbee-shaped body - but no shell

In the end, after thoroughly examining this ancient turtle with no shell, the scientists placed the creature on an evolutionary line that led to the appearance of turtles as we know them today. Eventually, the genetic mutations for a beak and a shell happened in the same turtle. "This impressively large fossil is a very exciting discovery giving us another piece in the puzzle of turtle evolution", Nick Fraser, another study author from the National Museums Scotland, explains .
