As if powerful earthquakes, a small South Pacific tsunami yesterday, and a new undersea volcano off the Pacific coast weren’t enough, today a massive dose of solar radiation was detected hitting earth.
Scientists have rediscovered a mostly intact World War II aircraft carrier used in atomic bomb tests and then sunk off the Northern California coast decades ago.
The first video and photos taken inside ground zero of the Fukushima nuclear powerplant that melted down in the 2011 magnitude 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunami show a devastating radioactive mess.
A new report suggests that fracking operations in California produce highly contaminate wastewater. Despite the evidence, Gov. Brown still supports the process.
Earth and the Sun may be 93 million miles apart, but cosmic explosions between the two celestial spheres occur often and with devastating effects–unleashing waves of radiation and disrupting GPS communications, and it is with this danger in mind that next month, NASA will launch four “Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission” satellites, studying these “magnetic reconnections” and better predicting the consequences of these cosmic phenomena.
Hundreds of U.S. sailors who took part in rescue efforts following Japan’s earthquake and tsunami say they were exposed to dangerous levels of radiation and are bringing a class-action lawsuit against Tokyo Electric Power Company.
From the surface of the sun, massive solar flares have been exploding out several million miles into space over the past few weeks, with the latest blast coming on November 5th at 1:47 a.m. Pacific time.
Someone sure upset the sun, because it’s throwing amazing amounts of radiation out in four solar flares this week, with an X3-class solar flare Friday.
Triple Massive Solar Flares Send Streams Of Radiation Toward Earth, Potentially Disrupting Radios And Navigation
A series of three massive solar flares over the past week has bathed Earth in higher than normal amounts of radiation, with the potential to temporarily black out radio communication and navigational equipment if the sun was hitting that part of the planet.
For years, people living on Treasure Island have been concerned the ground beneath their feet is radioactive and dangerous. A final test slated for this summer doesn’t make some residents feel any more at ease.
