Mount St. Helens Volcano could erupt in future, but not anytime soon

St. Helens Volcano is likely to prepare for eruption, but not anytime soon

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network has detected more than 130 small intensity earthquakes under Mount St. Helens since March 14. The low-magnitude earthquakes suggest scientists that they are activating Mount St. Helens volcano for another eruption. There may have been more earthquakes, but were minor enough to be non-detectable. The rate of earthquakes has been increasing gradually, and reached to almost 40 quakes per week.

How Solar System was Formed and Evolved? Tailless Comet Could Provide an Answer

How Solar System was Formed and Evolved? Tailless Comet Could Provide an Answer

A tailless comet has been discovered by astronomers with the help of Pan-STARRS telescope. Named C/2014 S3, the first-of-its-kind tailless comet thought to have been knocking around the space since our solar system was formed.

The unique space object holds clues about the formation and evolution of the solar system, as per a new study on the comet published in the journal Science Advances. The comet is an ancient body that may have returned from the edge of the solar system.

Octopuses change color to show aggression and other social behaviors: study

Octopuses resolve fights using color to mark their mood: study
