LASCHAMPS EXCURSION: Mass extinctions 42,000 years ago

The Laschamp event was a geomagnetic excursion (a short reversal of the Earth’s magnetic field). It occurred 41,400 years ago, during the end of the Last Glacial Period. It is known from geomagnetic anomalies discovered in the 1960s in the Laschamps lava flows in Clermont-Ferrand, France. Cooper and his team created an exactly dated carbon 14 record from […]

3-D Atlas of Universe: Reconnoitering Beyond Imagination

What we can vaguely observe in an open sky with bare eyes, let’s say Sirius (brightest star), constellation, satellites, and a few planets if you luck out.  But whether we are able to comprehend the stretch […]

Planet Earth

Earth is not only the third planet from the sun but also the only planet that supports life. Earth has been the fifth largest planet has a diameter of roughly 8000 miles and it’s round in shape due to gravity. Around 71% of the earth is covered with water with a fifth of the remaining […]
