Rosetta Mission Crashes Into Comet Theories

The historic Rosetta mission has ended with a crash landing. How has it changed ideas about comets?

Thank Van Allen's Belts and Richter's Rockets

Invisible shields above the Earth protect us all from dangerous radiation. New space probes explore how they do it.
Cassini at Saturn

SaturNews and TitaNews

New findings are running rings around planetary theories of old age, particularly in the Saturn system.

Moon Origin Story Collapses

In a one-two punch, discoveries undermine the accepted story of the moon's origin and its subsequent history.

Dawn of a Young Ceres

The largest asteroid has a problem: she's too young to get a date.

Why Astronomers Hammer Planets

Secular planetary scientists have a skeleton key that unlocks any planetary mystery: the BFH.

Hope, Not Evidence, Drives Astrobiology

Earth-size exoplanets are not evidence for alien life. They are evidence for orbiting bodies.

Radiation, Mistakes, and Assumptions

Three news items about atomic radiation should cause us to beware of academic overstatement.

Mars Life Hopes Reduced

Key assumptions about habitability on Mars have fallen, but astrobiologists try to keep hope alive.

Juno How Old the Solar System Is?

Everyone knows the solar system is 4.5 billion years old. Everyone, that is, except Nature herself.

Faint Young Sun Paradox Solved?

A major mystery for materialistic planetary science is solved—if you can swallow the miracles required.

Underground Oceans Can't Last Forever

If Pluto and Enceladus have oceans under the crust, why are they still liquid after billions of years?

Only Earth Is a Life Haven

Here are more discoveries that make it reasonable to think complex life is rare in the universe, and might be unique to Earth.

How Long Can Comets Bust Up and Re-form?

If comets repeatedly break up and re-coagulate, how long could that recur?

Big Science Lies About Chirality in Space

What was discovered has nothing to do with life, nor does it contribute in any way to solving one of the "greatest mysteries of chemistry."

Amino Acids Unlikely to Survive on Mars

UV radiation quickly degrades amino acids on most Martian minerals, a new study shows.

Pluto Has Active Geology

Convection apparently forms the polygonal cells in Sputnik Planum, a large active region on Pluto's surface.

Bluffing About Earth's Magnetic Field and Life's Chirality

The headlines might make one think evolutionists have finally scaled two monstrous hurdles for their theory.

More Challenges to Astrobiology

There aren't likely as many places to live outside of Earth as earlier hoped.

Life from Sun Flares?

A NASA scientist proposes that a period of superflares on the early sun zapped life into existence on the earth.

SETI Communication Only Outward So Far

While we wait for responses, all we hear are echoes of our own intelligent signals into space.

Earth Twin Still Missing in Exoplanet Trove

The Kepler spacecraft has found 2,325 exoplanets so far, but there's still no place like Earth.

Titan Ethane Still Missing, and Other Planetary Puzzles

We update the problem of Titan's missing ethane and other challenges to billions of years.

Rearranging Deck Chairs on Sinking Planet Theories

Supernovas come in handy as theory rescue devices.

Darwin Can't Win for Losing

Progress must be made with gains, not losses.

Titan Takes the Age Stage

Saturn's giant moon has prompted a flurry of new science papers. Can anyone keep it billions of years old?

Are Saturn's Moons Younger than the Dinosaurs?

Stunning admissions show that secular astronomers can't keep Saturn's moons billions of years old.

Hot Jupiters: Astronomers Blew It

The experts were (and are) wrong about how planets form, new data from a weird exoplanet show.
Ceres

Ceres Shows Serious Youth

The latest high-resolution images from asteroid Ceres show "mysteries" including surprisingly young features.

Astronomers Deal With Outrageous Phenomena

Even for scientists accustomed to big things, some observations seem too outrageous to explain.
