GMT on June 21), sending a cloud of thick volcanic plumes 8 to 10 miles (13 to 17 kilometers) above sea level, according to the European Space Agency , whose Copernicus Sentinel satellite imaged the eruption from orbit. The volcano's ash plume is now drifting north over the Bering Sea as of yesterday, according to the European Space Agency. This is the exact spot where the Pacific tectonic plate meets other tectonic plates, thus making it the area most prone to earthquakes and volcanic ...

Scientists discovered the asteroid in 2008 and promptly set about calculating how often it came within Earth's vicinity; the researchers produced estimates of its travels between 1900 and 2199. Dubbed Didymos , the asteroid system is one of thousands that could be an impact risk to Earth, and even the smaller of the two asteroids would be large enough to damage an entire city if it collided with our planet.

Thomas Zurbuchen , Nasa's associate administrator for science, said: "Titan is unlike any other place in the solar system, and Dragonfly is like no other mission". [Dragonfly] will first land at the equatorial "Shangri-La" dune fields, which are terrestrially similar to the linear dunes in Namibia in southern Africa and offer a diverse sampling location.

A forecast map published on website Météociel that predicted temperatures across France on June 27 seems to resemble the image of a screaming skull. Temperatures at night have also been record-setting, presenting a unsafe situation for those without access to air-conditioning and vulnerable groups such as older adults and the very young.

The research team out of Columbia University said the aquifer spans at least 350 kilometres from MA to New Jersey and holds an estimated 2.79 trillion litres worth of water, making it the largest such discovery in the world. When the ice melted, sediments formed wide river deltas on high of the shelf, and fresh water got trapped there in scattered pockets. However, the team has reason to believe that the aquifer is still being fed by modern runoff from dry land.

In fact, ocean bacteria can linger on your skin for hours, and possibly weaken your skin's natural microbiome that helps fight infections. A new study elaborated by researchers from the University of California claims that exposure to the oceanic water can affect the microbiome of the human skin negatively, by altering its structure and composition.

It's the first time the DoD is launching on a Falcon Heavy and it will be the rocket's first nighttime launch. The latest update from SpaceX suggests the launch will occur at 2:30 a.m. Among the most intriguing of the experiment is the " Deep Space Atomic Clock " built by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena-a technology which has the potential to revolutionize how we navigate in space.

That will launch aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket, with five solid boosters. Like before SpaceX will be attempting to land both its boosters and the centre core back to the ground. During the April launch, SpaceX recovered all three rockets. On July 2, NASA will conduct its Ascent Abort-2 mission, the third of five launches required for certification of the Orion spacecraft meant to carry people to the moon and later to Mars.

That's what appears to have happened precisely, and a brand new picture from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter reveals a brand new impact site which may exclusively be a couple of months old. Veronica Bray, HiRISE team member at the University of Arizona in the US said the crater is around 15 to 16 meters wide (49 to 53 feet), and the darker section in the picture depicting the impact zone is in fact 500 meters wide (or 1,640 feet).
