    Four Decades of Sea Ice From Space:  A Decline

    by Maria-José Viñas,
    NASA’s Earth Science News Team

    By the end of last century, scientists had painstakingly developed and tested the remote sensing techniques that allowed them to monitor sea ice from space.

    In the 1980s, the scientific community started becoming more interested in watching for signs of climate change in various Earth systems — but through that decade, sea ice showed very little in the way of clear-cut trends. The drastic changes of the past 15 years weren’t even imagined back then.

    “It was like watching paint dry,” said Jay Zwally, a senior scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., one of a handful of scientists who began in the early 1970s intensively working with satellite imagery to study sea ice.

    Still, the new data allowed researchers to start analyzing the long-term behavior of the Arctic Ocean’s icy cap…

    People’s Climate March draws hundreds of thousands

    New York Times: The People’s Climate March took over midtown Manhattan on Sunday in an effort to draw more attention to climate change ahead of a summit at the United Nations.

    Organizers from People’s Climate March estimate the crowd at the march numbered more than 300,000.

    Milky Way over Yellowstone

    The Milky Way was not created by an evaporating lake. The colorful pool of water, about 10 meters across, is known as Silex Spring and is located in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming,USA. Illuminated artificially, the colors are caused by layers of bacteria that grow in the hot spring. Steam rises off the spring, heated by a magma chamber deep underneath known as the Yellowstone hotspot. Unrelated and far in the distance, the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy arches high overhead, a band lit by billions of stars. The above picture is a 16-image panorama taken late last month. If the Yellowstone hotspot causes another supervolcanic eruption as it did 640,000 years ago, a large part of North America would be affected.

    Dreadnoughtus, for the uninitiated, is a newly discovered genus of supermassive titanosaurian dinosaur. At 65 tons, it possesses the largest reliably calculable mass of any known land animal.
