Very high silicon content surprises Mars researchers

17. december 2015

Very high silicon content surprises Mars researchers New results from the Mars rover Curosity show that some rocks in Gale Crater have a high content of the element silicon. Since the accumulation of silica typically require a combination of both heat and water, this place might once

Super-bright supernova with extreme burst of gamma radiation

08. juli 2015

Super-bright supernova with extreme burst of gamma radiation Astronomers from NBI have observed a super-bright supernova association with a very unusual long lasting gamma-ray burst. Gamma-ray bursts are in rare cases observed in connection with supernovae, which are the

Volcanic eruptions are important for world climate

08. juli 2015

Volcanic eruptions are important for world climate Large volcanic eruptions release huge clouds of ash and acid into the atmosphere. These clouds spread across the globe and block out the Sun, resulting in a colder climate for decades afterwards. Climate researchers have known

Risk of major sea level rise in Northern Europe

18. juni 2015

Risk of major sea level rise in Northern EuropeGlobal warming leads to the ice sheets on land melting and flowing into the sea, which consequently rises. New calculations by researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute show that the sea level in Northern Europe may rise more than
