Victoria Antoci of SAC had a good idea!

The Villum Experiment Grants seek to reward scientists who question conventional thinking, and thus the idea of Exploring the interplay between hot stars and exoplanets with a new spectrograph prototype for a unique nano-satellite mission has been awarded a grant of DKK 1 960 230,00.

Næsten 250 år gamle observationer fra Rundtårn giver Solen mindre ansvar for den globale opvarmning

Simulation of wind erosion on Mars. The quartz ampoule contains particles of olivine basalt and a Mars-like atmosphere. By shaking the ampoule, the researchers simulate wind-generated saltation, ie. that the wind causes the sand grains to make short jumps over the surface. The friction of the particles creates electrical charges, and the yellow star illustrates that an argon atom has lost an electron. The small electrical charges cause the particles to glow slightly, as illustrated in the four pictures to the right. Graphics: Mars Simulation Laboratory, AU

Methane vanishing on Mars: Aarhus researchers propose new mechanism as an explanation

The processes behind the release and consumption of methane on Mars have been discussed since methane was measured for the first time for approx. 15 years ago. Now, an interdisciplinary research group from Aarhus University has proposed a previously overlooked physical-chemical process that can explain methane's consumption.
