How and why North Korea developed into a nuclear power

Pyongyang recently launched a long-range ballistic missile and claims it is close to perfecting an intercontinental ballistic missile and nuclear warhead that could attack the United States mainland. In defiance of United Nations sanctions and global efforts to stop North Korea's nuclear programs, Pyongyang has conducted five nuclear tests and the US, in particular, is concerned there may be a sixth in an effort to develop a weapon capable of reaching USA soil.

Korean official blames Trump for region's 'vicious cycle'

Many North Korea watchers believe North Korea could have a viable nuclear warhead and a ballistic missile capable of hitting the US mainland on Trump's watch as president - within the next few years. Japan, under its postwar constitution, has limited the role of its military to self-defense only and relied on the US for offensive and nuclear capability. Read More

Trump reverses himself on 4 campaign positions in just 1 day

MARTIN: So key to this is China's help with North Korea which is an urgent threat. And the second thing is that they are able to do that without us being there to conduct the combat operations. But it was a much different thing. We had nothing but money. We had nothing but power. And you know, far more than we have today, in a true sense. Administration officials tell me it all boils down to what's in the best interest of the American people - and if that means modifying a previously stated ... Read More

NASA Says Moon Orbiting Saturn Might Be Habitable

NASA Says Moon Orbiting Saturn Might Be Habitable

We've probably wondered if we're alone in the universe for as long as we've been self-aware and gazed into the night sky. Could life exist out there, in our solar system? While some ingredients for life were found on Enceladus, the scientists made clear that the discovery didn't confirm life on the planet, but merely confirmed favorable conditions. Read More

Life on Saturn's moon may just be possible

Observations by Cassini suggest " hydrogen gas , which could potentially provide a chemical energy source for life, is pouring into the subsurface ocean of Enceladus from hydrothermal activity on the seafloor". That's why the best way to search for alien life today is to find pieces of the puzzle that make up the larger picture. United States space agency NASA published the findings obtained by the Cassini spacecraft and the Hubble Space Telescope , indicating that conditions in which ... Read More

Saturn's moon Enceladus harbours chemical energy for life

The paper from researchers with the Cassini mission was published Thursday in the journal Science . In a separate study, scientists also reported additional evidence of water vapour plumes erupting from Jupiter's moon Europa. The latest findings that Enceladus could support life forms evidences that hydrothermal activities are occurring in its ocean. However, in a major breakthrough, two of NASA's veteran missions have found compelling evidence of life on one of Saturn's moon ... Read More

Ocean world near Saturn top contender for life beyond Earth

Ocean world near Saturn top contender for life beyond Earth

Of course, life needs much more than just a source of energy: liquid water together with certain chemical compounds (carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and sulphur) are also required. As it passed through, the craft detected hydrogen, carbon dioxide and methane which were in "thermodynamic disequilibrium". We think Enceladus might be fairly young. Read More

NASA finds ALIEN life possibility on Saturn's moon Enceladus

NASA finds ALIEN life possibility on Saturn's moon Enceladus

For life to persist on any planet, it needs three vital energy sources: liquid water, right chemical ingredients (hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, carbon, and phosphorus), and an energy source for metabolism. From these observations scientists have determined that almost 98 per cent of the gas in the plume is water, about one per cent is hydrogen and the rest is a mixture of other molecules including carbon dioxide, methane and ammonia.

Ocean world near Saturn hotter-than-ever contender for life

They found that there is a plume coming from the moon's surface in an area that had shown plumes in the past, NASA specialists speculated that this may mean the same thing is happening on Europa as is happening on Enceladus. The thermal similarities between the two moons will need to be investigated further - especially with more observations of Europa, said William Sparks of the Space Telescope Science institute in Baltimore, who led the Hubble work.

NASA's new findings on oceanic world, life beyond Earth

NASA's new findings on oceanic world, life beyond Earth

Additionally, the Hubble Space Telescope showed a water plume erupting on the warmest part of the surface of Europa , one of Jupiter's moons with an icy crust over a salty liquid water ocean containing twice as much water as Earth's seas. Last October, Cassini scientists did their penultimate flyby of the little moon with the specific goal of finding this hydrogen. On Earth, most ocean vents don't produce that much hydrogen, though experts think they were much more common in our planet's ... Read More

Predator Ants Rescue Wounded Companions

Predator Ants Rescue Wounded Companions

Their opponents, however, are not exactly defenceless, and numerous ants are slaughtered or maimed by soldier termites, equipped with massive pincers. The researchers analyzed this SOS chemical ants send out and revealed that it was a mixture of dimethyl disulfide and dimethyl trisulfide. When they're hunting their prey, however, these ants often get injured - they lose legs, for instance. Read More
