Walkabout the Galaxy
life on Mars; habitable climate
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
We absolutely definitely have not seen any life on Mars. That said, new research suggests that over 3 billion years ago there may have been a certain kind of habitable climate on Mars for some little critters whose effects on the atmosphere would have made Mars - wait for it - uninhabitable! Join us for this and the most powerful gamma ray burst yet observed.
Tired of that same old routine, day in and day out? If you’re ready to shake things up in your life, come on down to the Instability Strip. You may see movie stars on the Hollywood Strip, but you’ll see the real deal on the instability strip. As aging, main sequence stars take a hop, skip, and a jump down our strip on their way to the Red Giant Branch, and you may even see a Red Giant drop its shell for a brief jump back to the main sequence. So strip off your old habits and visit the instability strip, where stars come and go but never stay. The instability strip, what happens here, only happens here (Las Vegas).
