The fact that Mars was a planet eerily similar to Earth is no surprise any longer.
But just how similar was it to our homeworld? Did the red planet once have oceans, lakes, and rivers? Did it have vegetation? And is it possible that life once existed in the now, barren and dry alien world?

Imagine asking these questions some 30 years ago. Astronomers would have immediately said… Seguir leyendo
The fact that we still have not explored our planet entirely blows my mind.

According to reports, researchers have discovered hundreds of stone structures believed to date back thousands of years in Western Sahara, an area scarcely explored by experts.
And it’s not that experts don’t find the area interesting, it’s that Western Sahara is controlled by two different states: Morocco holds about 75 percent of the Western… Seguir leyendo
Earth’s near future may not be so bright.
In fact, according to a recent study, our future planet Earth could be extremely similar to our ancient planet Earth.
And that’s not necessarily a very good thing.
British and American Scientists warn that in around 10 to 12 years, our planet’s climate could resemble that of the middle Pliocene, a period that began more than 3 million years ago.
The study (published Monday Dec. 10, 2018… Seguir leyendo
is a fascinating place that has barely been explored. In fact, we know so little about the moon that we aren’t really sure as to how exactly it formed when it formed, and a plethora of other questions remain unanswered.
I’ve written about some of the peculiarities
of the moon in previous articles where I described how the earth’s faithful companion has remained a fascinating astronomical object for millennia.To understand just how… Seguir leyendo
Despite the fact that throughout the millennia ancient civilizations built incredible structures across the planet, the Great Pyramid of Giza outshines nearly all of them.
Considered a masterpiece and wonder of ancient engineering and ancient man’s achievement, the Great Pyramid of Giza is one structure we wouldn’t be able to replicate today.
Historical analysis shows that the Pyramids were built between 2589 and 2504 BC, but despite this, there are many authors and researchers who… Seguir leyendo
When you think about the oldest settlements and cities on Earth, a few of us are aware of the fact that some of these cities date back to times before history was even written.
Depending on the definition of a city, we can discuss a number of ancient settlements that could rightfully compete for the title of the oldest city on Earth.
If we take a look what textbooks have to say, a city is… Seguir leyendo
Despite the fact that satellites orbiting earth have helped map our planet’s surface in great detail, there was a gap around an area of the South Pole, which is not covered by satellites due to the inclination of their orbits.
Now, scientists have finally revealed what is there, and it comes as a surprise.
Scientists exploring Antarctica have found massive mountain ranges and vast canyons that run for hundreds of miles beneath the… Seguir leyendo
