Video hipnótico muestra la acumulación de hielo en un lago. Un enorme océano subterráneo fue descubierto al centro de la Tierra. Esta gigantesca reserva de agua estaría a más de 400 km bajo la superficie del planeta.

Un enorme océano subterráneo fue descubierto al centro de la Tierra

Después de décadas de sospechas, ahora por fin los científicos tienen pruebas que podrían respaldar la tesis de que al centro de nuestro planeta existe agua. Investigadores de la Universidad de Northwesters y la Universidad de Nuevo México descubrieron evidencias que demostrarían que existe un enorme océano bajo nuestros pies escondido en el manto de la Tierra. Sin embargo este océano no está conformado por el agua que todos conocemos. La realidad supera a Photoshop - Cultura Inquieta. Project Apollo Archive’s albums.

They might lack the ability to launch a war against the forces of Isengard, or converge for a meeting about what to do about some pesky hobbits, but a species of tree in a remote section of Ecuador can, reportedly, walk.

You heard that right, there’s a very real species of palm tree, Socratea exorrhiza, that can grow new roots to 'sidestep' its way to better soil. And not just a little sidestep, either. These trees in Ecuador are reportedly 'walking' up to 20 metres per year. Security Check Required. Untitled. Pictures of the surface of Venus from Venera 13 taken back in 1982.

Assistance in fighting climate change appears to be coming from some very unlikely places: deep aquifers under deserts.

Where Is All The "Missing" Carbon Going?

The claim could have significant implications for how we try to lock carbon away. Every year, humans release over 36 billion tonnes (40 billion tons) of carbon dioxide through the burning of fossil fuels and felling of forests. Almost half of this stays in the atmosphere, forming the primary driver of Global Warming. Another third is absorbed by the oceans, with a different set of devastating effects. The rest was assumed to be captured by plants. However, while both forests and savannas have been shown to be storing some of this carbon in the bodies of plants or in the soil, not all of it can be accounted for in this way. Dr Yan Li of the Chinese Academy of Sciences reports in Geophysical Research Letters that inorganic carbon is stored in areas where saline or alkaline soils are being irrigated.

Li used the Tarim Basin in China’s Xinjang region as a test case. Watch the Devil’s Finger Fungus Hatch Like a Xenomorph Egg. Ever seen a fungus hatch?

Watch the Devil’s Finger Fungus Hatch Like a Xenomorph Egg

Yeah, we hadn’t either, and it’s weird AF. While this crazy organism looks better suited to life on Proteus than Earth, the devil’s finger fungus (Clathrus archeri) is Native to Australia and New Zealand. It typically appears as a white, gelatinous orb, but when it comes time for fruiting, the ‘egg’ opens, unleashing four to eight blood-red arms (and likely a pinch of doom) on the world. While unappealing to us humans, what you’re seeing is actually a rather ingenious method of reproduction. The tentacles are laced with a foul smelling tissue, specially formulated to attract flies and other insects. It’s a tactic also used by many stinkhorn fungi, which (like the devil’s finger) belong to the order phallales. The Crooked Forest: A Mysterious Grove of 400 Oddly Bent Pine Trees in Poland. This stand of bent pine trees known as the Crooked Forest is easily one of the strangest places in Central Europe.

Located outside of Nowe Czarnowo, West Pomerania, Poland, the nearly 400 trees are widely agreed to have been shaped by human hands sometime in the 1930s, but for what purposes is still up for debate. Each tree is bent near the base at 90 degrees, a form that could possibly be helpful in boat or furniture making. Strangely enough, every tree is bent in exactly the same direction: due North.

Study: Yellowstone magma much bigger than thought

(AP) — The hot molten rock beneath Yellowstone National Park is 2 ½ times larger than previously estimated, meaning the park's supervolcano has the potential to erupt with a force about 2,000 times the size of Mount St. Helens, according to a new study. By measuring seismic waves from earthquakes, scientists were able to map the magma chamber underneath the Yellowstone caldera as 55 miles long, lead author Jamie Farrell of the University of Utah said Monday. The chamber is 18 miles wide and runs at depths from 3 to 9 miles below the earth, he added. That means there is enough volcanic material below the surface to match the largest of the supervolcano's three eruptions over the last 2.1 million years, Farrell said. The largest blast — the volcano's first — was 2,000 times the size of the 1980 eruption of Mount St.

It played a role, they now understand, in icy weather, agricultural collapse and global pandemics — and even gave rise to celebrated monsters. Around the lush isles of the Dutch East Indies — modern-day Indonesia — the eruption of Mount Tambora killed tens of thousands of people. They were burned alive or killed by flying rocks, or they died later of starvation because the heavy ash smothered crops.

This Indonesian Volcano Erupts Electric-Blue Streams Of Molten Sulfur. Visitors looking up at Kawah Ijen, a volcano on the Indonesian island of Java, are treated to a sight not often seen in the rest of the world: electric-blue rivers streaming out from underneath the volcano.

Although it looks like bright blue lava, the streams are actually molten sulfur, which gives off a neon-like light at night. "I've never seen this much sulfur flowing at a volcano," U.S. Building Blocks Of Life Found Under The Seafloor. Researchers have found the building blocks of life deep below the seafloor, adding evidence to the theory that life is able to spring up wherever there is water, and of course the right chemistry. The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, could have implications for the chances of life existing on other worlds, such as Jupiter’s moon Europa. The team of scientists, from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), Virginia Tech, and the University of Bremen in Germany, studied rock samples that had been gathered from the seafloor off the coast of Spain and Portugal in 1993, originating from 100 million years ago in the Early Cretaceous period.

Analysis revealed that the rocks were rich in lipids, proteins and amino acids – the building blocks of life. It suggests that the interaction of the mantle with seawater can create the potential for life, and shows that life can spring up in a variety of environments. But the research is promising.
