Venus Was Never Habitable

Venus has bad news and bad news: it was never earthlike, and models to determine its habitability are unreliable.

Climate Models Fail History Test

Can you trust a politically-sensitive science that doesn't know history?

Mars Lost Its Water Rapidly

A new mechanism for desiccation on Mars could have dried up an ocean much faster than previously thought.

Dinosaur Swims to Rescue Darwin

A duck-billed dinosaur had to swim like a duck over an ocean to save the evolutionary timeline from falsification.

Earth Water Was Always Here

A new theory for the origin of Earth's oceans tries to make a splash again. This one says the Earth has always been wet.

Another Big Science Fail Over Pollution

Is plastic polluting the world's oceans? Yes, but not nearly as much as hundreds of studies had claimed. Measure, don't assume!

Crucial Geological Proxy May Be Misinterpreted

Many inferences about past climate and evolution depend on a measurement with dubious interpretations.

Wood Buried Under Ocean Floor Thousands of Miles at Sea

Wood chips hundreds of feet deep in ocean sediments have been found. How did they get there?

Lunar Mysteries Plague Materialist Theories 50 Years After Apollo

Apollo was supposed to decide between 3 competing theories for the moon's origin. Conclusion: all 3 were wrong.

Fallacious Assumptions Corrupt Science

Scientists are not immune from the attraction of primrose paths that lead to confirmation of their biases.

Mars Is Losing Its Atmosphere Fast

Measurements of Martian atmospheric loss rates imply incredible changes over the assumed billions of years of Mars' history.

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.

Did Earth Get Its Water from Meteor Squirt Guns?

You can't just fire bullets at pumice and claim that Earth got its oceans that way.

Tiny Life Benefits the Whole World

Some very small organisms can produce global effects, such as the tiny crustaceans that stir the oceans every night. What would the oceans be like without life? If minerals, gases and nutrients had to mix by diffusion, the process would be very slow. Wind and currents could help somewhat. Now, Houghton et al., publishing in […]

Ceres Is Young

Dawn Mission scientists were surprised to see this asteroid (dwarf planet Ceres) with a water cycle and evidence of rapid geological changes.
