Britain breaks coal-free power record

Wednesday 06:04 GMT

It is the longest period since the industrial revolution and breaks the previous record set in April 2018 of 76 hours and 10 minutes.

NASA releases recording of first-ever likely ‘marsquake’

Wednesday 20:56 GMT

NASA says the new seismic event was too small to provide solid data on the planet’s interior, which is one of the main objectives of the NASA InSight mission.

NASA sends bison chili and other Canadian treats to David Saint-Jacques space in time for Easter. “The Martian Sol 128 event is exciting because its size and longer duration fit the profile of moonquakes detected on the lunar surface during the Apollo missions,” Lori Glaze, Planetary Science Division director at NASA headquarters, said in a statement.
