More than 20% of the Earth would have been eroded by cosmic impacts during its formation!

How did the Earth form? This is a question still debated. Because there are certain chemical anomalies in the composition of the earth’s crust which suggest that our Planet was not formed simply by accretion of planetesimals. If the number of exoplanets discovered continues to increase, examples with characteristics close to those of Earth remain … Read more

Dive into Jupiter’s gas vortices in 3D

The images of the storms which agitate the atmosphere of Jupiter are legion. But those offered to us today by researchers are not quite like the others. A 3D view of clouds shaped like cupcake icing. Swirling clouds. Storms of crazy dimensions. Astronomers have already observed many of them on Jupiter. But the view of … Read more

How Jupiter Could Make Earth Even More Habitable

In his famous undergraduate physics course, the Nobel Prize in physics Richard Feynman showed from the first year how it was possible, with elementary numerical calculation means already on simple computers from the very beginning of the 1960s, to describe and predict the movements of N material points modeling planets moving under the action of … Read more
