Subaru Crosstrek Prices Rise Just a Tad for 2019 (As Sales Leave Earth’s Atmosphere)

In a repeat of last year, Subaru of America plans to inflate the price of its 2019 Crosstrek models by a dollar figure that’s small and manageable. Wouldn’t want those buyers to feel used, and with good reason. As the automaker rolls out MSRPs for next year’s physically unchanged models, it’s enjoying record sales for […]

Faulty Chinese space station re-enters Earth's atmosphere as space-watchers guess its crash site

Chinese space station Tiangong-1, whose imminent crash space-watchers have awaited with bated breath, has pierced the Earth’s atmosphere over the South Pacific, Chinese state media says. Most of it has reportedly burned up. The space station made its long-awaited re-entry in the central region of the South Pacific at 8:15 am [00:15 GMT] on Monday, the […]

Hubble discovers vast evidence of water in rare exoplanet’s atmosphere

NASA’s Hubble spacecraft has discovered signs of a large amount of water in an exoplanet some 700 light-years away. The planet is unlike others in the solar system and can provide crucial insights into the origin of other worlds. The agency’s Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes found the “fingerprints” of water in the atmosphere of […]

George Groves beats Chris Eubank Jr in ELECTRIC Manchester atmosphere

Groves had been expected to tire in the later stages but it was his smaller rival who was left throwing punches at thin air in the final round, although both men went to war from almost the first bell. Eubank Jr did show signs of the speed that makes him such a dangerous opponent but […]

Submerged permafrost releasing methane, but not into the atmosphere

(credit: John Kessler Lab) The Earth responds to climate change in interesting ways, sometimes producing what we call “feedbacks,” which can either amplify global warming or dampen it. Some of the feedbacks that can amplify warming have behavior that is hard to predict in the […]

NASA exploring whether a ‘magnetic tail’ is destroying Martian atmosphere

Published time: 22 Oct, 2017 10:00 Edited time: 22 Oct, 2017 10:10 Plasma explosions from the sun over billions of years have all but stripped Mars of its atmosphere. But a new discovery by NASA shows that remnants of the Red Planet’s magnetic field can be found in the form of a rotating ‘tail’. Invisible […]

How well have climate models done in the upper atmosphere?

Enlarge (credit: NASA) If people who reject climate science ever point to actual data, you can just about bet the farm it will be data from satellite measurements of upper-atmosphere temperatures. At least until the record-setting global heat in 2015 and 2016, some of the satellite data was amenable to the claim that global warming had magically ended […]

Dennis Johnson, Jupiter’s Atmosphere, Mental Health Coverage: This Week’s Recommended Reading

Here at Flavorwire, we pride ourselves on not only writing some of the best content on the internet, but keeping an eye on all of the great writing that other folks on the ‘net are doing, too. This week, we look towards pieces on more reasons why the American Health Care Act will further harm the […]

Astronomers find water in the atmosphere of a warm, Neptune-sized planet

The planet is roughly Neptune-sized and orbits close to its host star. And now we know […]
