Washington, April 13 (IANS) After the discovery of "Australia" by NASA's Curiosity Rover, scientists have now located a heart shape on Tharsis Bulge, a region home to some of the Red planet's biggest ancient volcanoes.

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.

A U.S. Geological Survey team planned to tour the Norris Geyser Basin on Sunday to determine if the quake altered any of Yellowstone's geothermal features, such as geysers, mud pots and hot springs. Several people reported having felt shaking they compared to the rumble of a tractor-trailer truck driving by, and a few items fell off the shelves at a local grocery store, a West …
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.

Sydney, April 25 (IANS) What if you are told that you can print your smart phone on your t-shirt and walk around? Welcome to the world of "spaser" technology that can make mobile phones so small, efficient, and flexible that these could be printed on clothing. A team of researchers from Melbourne-based Monash University's department of electrical and computer systems engineering (ECSE) has modelled the world's first spaser (surface plasmon amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) to be made completely of carbon. "Other spasers designed to date are made of gold or silver nanoparticles and semiconductor quantum dots while our device would be comprised of a graphene resonator and a carbon nanotube gain element," said lead researcher Chanaka Rupasinghe.

Washington, April 25 (ANI): Researchers are investigating a new version of "spaser" - a nanoscale laser or nanolaser - technology which could mean that mobile phones become so small, efficient, and flexible they could be printed on clothing. A team of researchers from Monash University's Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering (ECSE) has modelled the world's first spaser (surface plasmon amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) to be made completely of carbon. PhD student and lead researcher Chanaka Rupasinghe said the modelled spaser design using carbon would offer many advantages. He said the use of carbon means our spaser would be more robust and flexible, would operate at high temperatures, and be eco-friendly.
By Noah Browning and Ali Sawafta RAMALLAH West Bank (Reuters) - Rather than keep his cards close to his chest, President Mahmoud Abbas is playing them all at once in a confusing effort to advance Palestinian statehood and bolster his own fragile legitimacy. In the past few weeks, he has veered from saying he will confront Israel at the United Nations as the head of a newly-minted state of Palestine to threatening to turn over his government to Israel because it is powerless. While still pursuing U.S.-led peace talks, he stunned Washington on Wednesday by striking a unity deal with his Islamist rivals Hamas, which is dedicated to Israel's destruction and is viewed by the West as a terrorist group. "Abu Mazen is well aware that the legitimacy of the Palestinian political system as a whole …
