Scientists have discovered damage to two major Antarctic glaciers through satellite imagery, according to a new study.
Researchers from the US and several other countries published a study Monday that found two of the fastest-changing glaciers in Antarctica, the Pine Island Glacier and Thwaites Glacier, have developed “crevasses and open fractures,” which show “signs of their structural weakening.”
“These damage areas consist of highly crevassed areas and open fractures and are first signs tha…

Why do we sleep? The answer may change right before we turn 3. – Live Science
Humans spend about a third of our lives sleeping, and scientists have long debated why slumber takes up such a huge slice of our time. Now, a new study hints that our main reason for sleeping starts off as one thing, then changes at a surprisingly specific age.
Two leading theories as to why we sleep focus on the brain
: One theory says that the brain
uses sleep to reorganize the connections between its cells, building electrical networks that support our memory
and ability to learn; the o…
Scientists detect an unexpected, beautiful aurora in the Solar System – Inverse
Researchers have observed for the first time an aurora on a celestial object that is not a moon or planet.
Four years ago, comet-hunting spacecraft, Rosetta, took a final swan dive
into the face of the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. It was the dramatic culmination of the European Space Agency’s twelve-year mission to study the icy object.
While Rosetta may be gone, its memory lives on in data. Scientists continue to analyze these data, collected from its time around and on the icy dirt ball, transforming scientists’ understanding of tiny interstellar objects like comet 67P and confounding expe…
