  1. Monster El Nino probed by meteorologistsRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 20, 2016 | NatureNews

    Climate scientists this week began a research blitz to study El NiA o, the climate trouble-maker that disrupts weather around much of the globe. For the next two months, US researchers will use specially outfitted planes, a research ship and hundreds of weather balloons to monitor the region in the tropical Pacific Ocean where El NiA o forms.

  7. Pluto's geology is unlike any otherRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 15, 2015 | NatureNews

    Take a pinch of Mars, a sprinkle of Saturn's moon Iapetus and a dash of Neptune's moon Triton - and the recipe will yield something like Pluto. The first published scientific findings 1 from NASA's New Horizons mission, which flew past Pluto in July, confirm that the dwarf planet does not resemble any other single world in the Solar System.

    Aug 19, 2015 | NatureNews

    The biggest planets in the Solar System may have gotten their start from the smallest of rocks: centimetre-sized pebbles that formed 4.5 billion years ago from dust and ice swirling around the newborn Sun. New research 1 strengthens support for the idea that small pebbles rapidly melded into the cores of gas-giant planets such as Jupiter and Saturn.

  14. How the rubber-duck comet got its shapeRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 7, 2015 | NatureNews

    A year after the Rosetta space mission went into orbit around a comet shaped like a rubber duck , scientists say that they have worked out how the dusty iceball got its shape - although they haven't ironed out every detail. The comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko probably formed from two distinct pieces - a small head on a large body - rather than through the erosion of a single body into a duck shape, according to an analysis to be published in Astronomy and Astrophysics and available at the arXiv preprint server 1 .

    Jul 15, 2015 | NatureNews

    Ice mountains up to 3,500 metres high - comparable to Earth's Rocky Mountains - tower on Pluto, and the dwarf planet's biggest moon, Charon, looks shockingly young. This intriguing geology is revealed by the latest images from NASA's New Horizons mission, captured during its historic trip past Pluto on 14 July and released on 15 July.

    Marc Buie may have spent more time looking at Pluto than any other human being. The planetary astronomer at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, has spent more than a quarter of a century using telescopes on the ground and in orbit, such as the Hubble Space Telescope, to probe Pluto's secrets.

    Jul 14, 2015 | NatureNews

    NASA's New Horizons mission phoned home on the night of 14 July, sending a burst of telemetry data that confirmed it had successfully flown past Pluto in the first-ever visit to that dwarf planet. Engineers and scientists in mission control, at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, burst into cheers just before 9 p.m. local time as the signal appeared, as a strings of 1s and 0s, confirming that a deep-space antenna in Madrid, Spain, had locked onto the spacecraft.
