  • Scientists are studying an exceptional episode of ancient global warming that occurred around 56 million years ago. During the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, global sea surface temperatures increased by about 5°C. Studying this period could help scientists understand how modern climate change could effect life on

  • Even though our moon has suffered intense bombardment from asteroids and powerful radiation from the Sun, significant deposits of water remain in deep polar craters. New data from the LCROSS spacecraft has improved our understanding of this unique lunar resource and has identified other elements
