Saturn-Day and Moon-Day Arrive

Last Saturday, we looked at news about Saturn and its rings. This "Saturn"-day we look at news about Saturn's moons.

What Science Doesn’t Know

For all the confident triumphalism scientists display, there are major things they do not grasp.

Saturn’s Rings Not Just Young, but “Very Young”

Cassini scientists now have reduced the rings' age by an order of magnitude, as if they formed practically "yesterday."

Natural Sources of Methane Surprise Climate Scientists

Methane is 30 times more potent than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. Look where it comes from.

Climate Science Underestimates Natural Sources of Warming

Scientists discover two more potent sources of greenhouse gases, both of which have nothing to do with human activity.

NASA Titillates Public Again with Fake Mars Life

Which is worse: NASA making hyper-exaggerated claims about life on Mars over the decades, or so many media reporters falling for it each time?

Freaks of Evolution Exposed

A science writer calls some weird animals freaks of evolution, but there's a double meaning in that phrase begging to be unpacked.

After Cassini, Titan Still a Problem for Long Ages

The scientist who predicted a global ocean on Titan 35 years ago is still baffled over why Cassini did not find it.

Cassini Continues to Unveil Youth at Saturn

Reports from Cassini's last days, even up to its last gasps as it plunged into Saturn on September 15, are not supporting long ages.

Chinks in the Climate Science Data

Consensus can be more robust than the data it rests on. That's true in Darwinism, and appears to be true in climate science, according to some published doubts.

Big Science Losing Public Trust

Scientists themselves are warning that the scientific community has lost a great deal of public trust, and for good reasons.

Doubts About Dates and Climate

New findings cast doubt on scientists' ability to be certain about their consensus views.

Cracks in the Climate Consensus?

It's still dangerous to challenge Big Science about climate change. In the new political climate, a growing number of voices are willing to take the risk.

Titan Ethane Still Missing, and Other Planetary Puzzles

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

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?
