This power storm multitude who've disposed abreast the opportunity an alien meeting inside their lifetimes: A gore of NASA scientists says we should uncovering noncitizen living inside 20 days. And that's a "button-down" approximate.As onetime spaceman and NASA executive Charles Bolden aforementioned, well-nigh citizenry operative in the quad diligence understand that the curve unboundedness of place way we're belike not the lone life-forms approximately—eventide if we've ne'er plant any tell. But as engineering improves, we can explore for living much more expeditiously.Thanks Read more [...]

Map of anomalous temperatures this summer in Russia. Where redder, the average temperature is stronger differs from the average values plus, more blue plots show deviations in the negative. NASA Earth ObservatoryNASA experts on the basis of images from an orbiting satellite Terra made a map of temperature anomalies of the end of July 2010 on the territory of Russia. On the map are regions where the temperature is 12 degrees above the average for the period 2000 to 2008. But there are regions where the temperature is the same amount of degrees below average.On the basis of data obtained Read more [...]

The ozone hole over the last ten years has not increased due to coordinated international efforts to protect the ozone layer that protects the Earth from ultraviolet radiation from the Sun.
This is stated in the study prepared by the world meteorological organization (WMO) and the UN environment programme (UNEP) with the participation of about 300 scientists.
As emphasized in the report, the concentration of ozone on a global scale, as over the Arctic and Antarctica, has not changed for the worse.
This is due to the rejection of the use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which are widely used Read more [...]
Residents of the canadian island of Newfoundland today could not go to work: coast hit by hurricane Igor. Squally wind tears electricity, fells trees, but because of the heavy rains have washed away roads. Many people were trapped in their own homes: the water is rising, and the help will not come soon. Rescue is not enough, help them volunteers.Weather forecasts are disappointing: the next day the storm will only increase. Damage from the elements now estimated at several tens of millions of dollars.
