  2. NASA study shows during winter months Carbon Emissions in Arctic may go UnobservedRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday | Clarksville Online

    A new NASA-led study has found that in at least part of the Arctic, scientists are not doing as good a job of detecting changes in carbon dioxide during the long, dark winter months as they are at monitoring changes during the short summer. That's a concern, because growing Arctic plants can act as a brake on global warming rates by removing carbon from the atmosphere, but increasing cold-season emissions could overwhelm the braking effect and accelerate global warming. 1 comment

  15. NASA's Hubble Space Telescope data shows Hot Jupiters may have Water in their AtmospheresRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Jun 9 | Clarksville Online

    Water is a hot topic in the study of exoplanets, including "hot Jupiters," whose masses are similar to that of Jupiter, but which are much closer to their parent star than Jupiter is to the sun. They can reach a scorching 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit , meaning any water they host would take the form of water vapor.
