Washington, April 3 (ANI): Researchers have discovered that the surface of Mercury is crackled with volcanic explosions for extended periods of the planet's history. On Earth, volcanic explosions like the one that tore the lid off Mount St. Helens happen because our planet's interior is rich in volatiles-water, carbon dioxide and other compounds with relatively low boiling points. Mercury, however, was long thought to be bone dry when it comes to volatiles, and without volatiles there can't be explosive volcanism. But that view started to change in 2008, after NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft made its first flybys of Mercury.
Washington, Apr 1 (ANI): After taking a detailed look at the distinctive Cerberus Fossae, planetary scientists say that some of Mars' lava fields may actually be massive mud flows, indicating that the ancient feature may not have been caused by volcanic activity at all. If this is the case, then many other Mars lava flows need to be reexamined, Lionel Wilson of the University of Hawai'i, Manoa, and Peter Mouginis-Mark of Lancaster University said. But would mud flows have a platy crust too? For one thing, the lower atmospheric pressure of Mars would cause the water inside the mud flow to boil.
The latest earthquake struck at 6:34 a.m. near the Norris Geyser Basin and was felt about 23 miles (37 km) away in two small Montana towns adjacent to year-around entrances to the park - Gardiner and West Yellowstone.

Washington, Mar 11 (ANI): By studying the rings of ancient trees in mountainous central Mongolia, researchers think they may have unraveled the mystery of how small bands of nomadic Mongol horsemen united to conquer much of the world within a span of decades, 800 years ago. The rise of the great leader Genghis Khan and the start of the largest contiguous empire in human history was propelled by a temporary run of nice weather. Grass production must have boomed, as did vast numbers of war horses and other livestock that gave the Mongols their power. But the tree rings, spanning 1,112 years from 900 to 2011, also exhibit an ominous modern trend.
