A new study suggests that the discovery of manganese oxide on Mars could prove that there was Earth-like oxygen on the Martian atmosphere during the ancient times.
NASA's Curiosity rover has unearthed high levels of manganese oxide deposits in rocks found on Mars, which gives a bigger possiblity that the Red Planet could have looked like Earth in the past.
Scientists discover a strong “electric wind” in Venus that can strip off all of the planet’s waters.
A new study using ALMA in Chile has detected a clear sign of oxygen in one of the most distant galaxy 13.1 billion light years away from Earth.
Based on the statistics, three million premature deaths occur each year because of the intoxicating air that we breathe.
The continues global warming due to climate change has been known to take its toll to Arctic, melting ice caps at an increased rate, but a new study suggests that the warming climate may be sapping considerably amounts of oxygen from the ocean.
Although oxygen build-up on Earth and in its oceans took longer than previously thought, it provided the essential burst of energy for animal growth on life, says a new study.
Even though plants first emerged on Earth 400 million years ago, it was not until approximately 80 million years later that wildfires began ripping through forests and grasslands like they do today in California. This could explain why plants were able to diversify the way they did.
A look at what happens to the human body while scaling Mount Everest, 29,029 Feet Above Sea Level.
Microbiologists recently discovered a way to combat worldwide ocean dead zones that are attributed to nitrogen-based fertilizers. Naturally occurring bacteria called rhizobia could replace nitrogen in fertilizer once more is learned about one of its genes called HrrP. Reduced nitrogen runoff would translate into fewer ocean dead zones.
After examining the geophysical and geochemical characteristics of Earth's core and mantle, researchers now believe there are higher oxygen concentrations than previously thought. This sheds light on Earth's formation 4.56 billion years ago.
Blue crabs can survive in oceans with lower oxygen concentrations. A recent study suggests that blue crabs will remain resilient even as water temperatures increase and oxygen levels decrease.
Scientists have discovered a thin layer of oxygen created by photosynthetic bacteria at the bottom of a Antarctic lake. This could better explain what was happening on Earth billions of years ago.
Recent studies found that magnesium peroxide may be abundant in extremely oxidized mantles and cores of rocky planets outside our solar system.
