Subsurface water on Mars defy expectations: Physics connects seismic data to properties of rocks and sediments

Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech A new analysis of seismic data from NASA’s Mars InSight mission has revealed a couple of surprises. The first surprise: the top 300 meters of the subsurface beneath the landing site near the Martian equator contains little or no ice. “We find that Mars’ crust is weak and porous. The sediments are not …

Georgia Tech Researchers Defy Standard Laws of Physics

Researchers have proven that when bodies exist in curved spaces, they can in fact move without pushing against something. Robotic Motion in Curved Space Defies Standard Laws of Physics When humans, animals, and machines move throughout the world, they always push against something, such as the ground, air, or water. Until recently, physicists thought this …

Strange Radio Sources in Distant Galaxy Cluster Defy Our Understanding

The Universe is littered with galaxy clusters – huge structures piled up at the intersections of the cosmic web. A single cluster can span millions of light-years across and be made up of hundreds, or even thousands, of galaxies.   However, these galaxies represent only a few percent of a cluster’s total mass. About 80 …
