Uncovering the Mystery of Venus’ Heat Flow with Coronae

NASA researchers have found that thin regions of Venus’ lithosphere may hold the key to understanding how the planet cools and what processes shape its surface.[0] Data from the Magellan probe in the early 1990s, which studied quasi-circular geological features called coronae, shows that these structures tend to occur where the lithosphere is weakest and […]

Uncovering the Evolution of Different-Sized Dinosaurs: Researchers Examine Bones for Answers

For centuries, scientists have been perplexed by the evolution of different-sized dinosaurs, from the gigantic T. rex to the smaller Velociraptor.[0] In a recent paper appearing in Science, Ohio University professor Patrick O’Connor and Ph.D. student Riley Sombathy, among other researchers, investigated the bones of non-avialan theropod dinosaurs and concluded that there is no correlation […]
