One day, humankind may step foot on another habitable planet. That planet may look very different from Earth, but one thing will feel familiar – the rain.
In a recent paper, Harvard researchers found that raindrops are remarkably similar across different planetary environments, even planets as drastically different as Earth and Jupiter.
Understanding the behavior of raindrops on other planets is key to not only revealing the ancient climate on planets like Mars but identifying potentially habitable planets outside our solar system. [Read more…] about Raindrops also keep fallin’ on exoplanets
- 32Researchers in the Climate Intervention Biology Working Group – including Jessica Hellmann from the University of Minnesota Institute on the Environment – explored the effect of solar climate interventions on ecology, and their results were published in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences. Composed of climate scientists and ecologists from…
