With the Earth science program aimed to advance and develop further understanding of the Earth's systems and its changes, what will happen if NASA Earth science does shut down?
New regulations on oil drilling in different parts of Oklahoma have reportedly significantly reduced the frequency of quakes and tremors in the state. This seems to prove that thousands of tremor "swarms" or quakes experienced in different areas, having magnitudes as high as 5.0, are actually man-made.
India just launched the world's largest solar power farm, a 2,500-acre facility in Kamuthi, which has a capacity of 648 megawatts and could power up as much as 150,000 homes.
