Climate Change: Over Half of Antarctic’s Adélie Penguins will disappear by End of 21st Century

Antarctic continent has been home to Adélie penguins since millions of years, but climate change may soon force the penguin species to leave the place. A new study has suggested that about one-third current Adélie colonies will disappear by 2060 if Antarctic ice continues to shrink.

Future Cities May be Built of bones instead of pollution-causing Concrete, Steel

Future Cities May be Built of bones instead of pollution-causing Concrete, Steel

If a team of researchers from the University of Cambridge has its way, artificial bones and eggshells would replace pollution-causing concrete and steel as building material for the rapid expansion in urban areas. They claim it would be the most environment-friendly method to accommodate the growing population in cities.

The researchers claim that concrete and steel together account for about 10% of the world's total greenhouse gas emissions.

First Magnetar Found With Wind Nebula Around

First Magnetar Found With Wind Nebula Around

In a first of its kind discovery, astronomers have found a wind nebula surrounding a magnetar, which is an exceptional ultra-magnetic neutron star. Wind nebula is an enormous cloud comprising of high-energy particles. Magnetars are the most powerful magnets in the universe and this discovery offers an exclusive opportunity to understand the characteristics, environment and outbreak history of magnetars.
