Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
New calculations show how large impacts onto Mars may have boosted its greenhouse effect, helping explain how it was warm enough for all those rivers and lakes billions of years ago. If that explains Mars' early warm climate, it could be bad news for potential for life there. Futher from home, dust has been observed star forming regions in the Small Magellanic Cloud where the abundance of planet-building raw materials is low. Check out these stories, space news, and special top quark trivia.
5 Sigma Detection
If you're tired of looking for that needle in a haystack, get 5 Sigma detection to make it stand out from the crowd. The gold standard in particle physics, with a 99.99994% likelihood that you're not just looking at a chance occurrence with five Sigma detection, you can stake your reputation on your results. Act now and for a limited time you can upgrade to Six Sigma detection at no additional cost to reduce your odds of a fluke even further to one in 500 million. Five Sigma detection cannot be held responsible for systematic errors. For your next great result get 5 Sigma. Double your pleasure, Double your fun. (Doublemint Gum).
