Mapping the atmosphere on Mars can help advance science on our own

The Hope probe has three main objectives, the first is to understand the lower Martian atmosphere and its weather and climate. Yousuf continues, “The second objective is to correlate the lower atmosphere conditions with the upper atmosphere to explain how weather changes the escape of hydrogen and oxygen. And the final objective that we have […]

Removing methane from atmosphere could slow global warming – if we

“There’s probably nothing we can do that has a greater impact on shaving the hottest temperatures over the next few decades than removing methane,” he says. Rob Jackson, a researcher at Stanford and co-author of both studies. Methane is relatively scarce: carbon dioxide is about 200 times denser in the atmosphere. However, according to a […]
