Ceres Looks Seriously Young

Asteroids should not be so active. This one was, and is.

Fossils Can Mislead Big Time

Claims about fossil patterns rely on methods and assumptions that have been proven wrong.

Call it what you will, Pluto is a planet of surprises. Its active geology is second only to Earth's, say two planetary scientists.

How Did Earth Get Its Phosphorus?

The element phosphorus is hard to get to a planet's surface where it is needed.

The Design Packed Into a Fruit Fly

Astrobiology Survives on Passionate Hope

Without the words 'might' and 'could,' astrobiologists would have nothing to say.

WW2 Aircraft Found Under 300 Ft of Greenland Ice

How long does it take to bury an aircraft under hundreds of feet of ice? Try 76 years.

Stalactite Indicates Ultrafast Magnetic Reversals

Contrary to what geophysicists have claimed for decades, magnetic reversals may occur 'ridiculously quickly.' Or is confidence in experts ridiculous?

Richter Scaling: Is Funding for Astrobiology and SETI Justified?

Should the government fleece taxpayers again for a project with almost zero chance for success? Consider two "Richter scales" that should inform hopes.

Synthetic Fossils Show Organic Films Can Preserve Quickly

In an attempt to learn about the fossilization process, scientists have found that exceptional fossils don’t require millions of years. Scientists at the University of Bristol are old-earth evolutionists, but what they found by experiment mimicked what can be seen in fossils. How long did it take? One day. Exceptionally-preserved fossils, like those of dinosaur […]
