Scientists recently mapped the development of one of the world's largest consolidated piles of dust and erosion--China's vast Loess Plateau. In doing so, they studied both wind-related geology change and climate change.
Large dust storms carry valuable particles eastward to the Pacific Ocean for phytoplankton to feed on. Since this species naturally combats climate change, varying storm deposits could have a detrimental effect.
Scientists have recently discovered that the Moon is engulfed in a permanent, lopsided dust cloud that could affect future space travel, a new study says.

More than a million young stars are forming in a mysterious hot, dusty cloud of molecular gases in a tiny galaxy not too far away from our own, according to new research.
It seems that despite the fact that humanity has had orbiters in the sky and landers on the Martian surface since the 1970s, the Red Planet is still full of surprises. A new Mars orbiter sent by NASA has now noticed not one, but two unexpected phenomena in the planet's atmosphere: an unexplained high-altitude dust cloud and an unusual aurora.
Women often go to great lengths (pun intended) to gain the most perfect, curly, long eyelashes using mascara, fake eyelashes and even treatments like Latisse. And now scientists have revealed the perfect lash length, proving that more isn't always better.
