Indian scientists discover exoplanet 600 light years away

Scientists have claimed that the discovery will help in the understanding of the formation mechanism of super-Neptune or sub-Saturn kind of planets that are too close to the host star. However, calculations suggest that the heavy elements, ice, silicates, and iron content are 60-70 % of the total mass. Since the planet revolves around host star EPIC 211945201 or K2-236, it will be known as EPIC 21... [Full Article...]

Study says tropical cyclones slowing

Study says tropical cyclones slowing Kossin told Nature that a 10% slow-down in storm speed corresponds to a 10% increase in rainfall when a hurricane makes landfall. But one scientist with the U.S. For instance, if exceptionally slow-moving storms have grown more likely in recent years, does that mean "stalled" storms like Harvey-which seemed to get stuck in place for days-are increasing, too? But Kossin, in his paper, writes th... [Full Article...]
