  • Ski Pluto: Glaciers Are Flowing

    Planetary scientists are dumbfounded by more evidence of youth at Pluto, both on the surface and in the atmosphere. Last Friday’s news conference contained more detailed images of Pluto. Alan Stern first shared a global portrait with twice the resolution … Continue reading

  • Pluto Is Young

    The New Horizons science team is stunned by surface features on Pluto and its large moon Charon that cannot be billions of years old. In the video, Deputy Project Scientist Cathy Olkin excitedly described the huge canyons and cliffs, the … Continue reading

  • Where Are the Earth’s Impact Craters?

    The number of impact craters on Earth is almost negligible compared to Mars and the moon. Can erosion explain this? Scientists have estimated that there must be about 340 undiscovered meteor craters on the Earth, Science Daily reports. Only 188 have been … Continue reading

  • Admit It: Mars Is Lifeless

    How much longer does the public have to be told that Mars “might” have life or space aliens “could” be found soon? A writer for New Scientist is concerned about the cost of protecting Mars from contamination. But the argument bears on … Continue reading

  • Discovery: Volcanoes on Venus

    The tortured surface of Venus appears to have been formed through recent geologic processes, and its rocks contain no record of deep time.1 What if Venus were young rather than 4.5 billion years old? It would explain quite a bit, including … Continue reading

  • Will Pluto Surprise Scientists?

    First-time encounters have a long history of shocking planetary scientists with unexpected features. It’s about time for Pluto. Since New Horizons was launched in 2006, Pluto went from planet to minor planet to plutoid to dwarf planet. The Plutonians surely don’t care … Continue reading

  • The seven-day cycle

    What is the origin of the names we use for the days of the week? It doesn’t take long to discover they are identified with seven pagan gods associated with the five major planets plus the sun and moon. This … Continue reading

  • Desperately Seeking Life Beyond Earth

    Earth life cannot be unique. How about you, Mars? Europa, anything? Enceladus? Comet 67P? Please break the silence! Comet 67P The latest evidence-starved speculation about life beyond Earth is that Rosetta’s lander Philae is sitting on a world sculpted by microbes (see PhysOrg). … Continue reading

  • Natural Light Shows Dazzle Scientists

    Here are some news stories from diverse fields of science, related only by the phenomenon of light. Independence Day is a time for explosions of light in the dark. Nature’s light explosions can be strictly physical, but the most interesting … Continue reading

  • To Discover Irreducibly Complex Mechanisms, Biologists Reverse Engineer a Worm

    My master’s degree research focused on paleomagnetism and I’ve always been fascinated by the earth’s magnetic field. So naturally I was interested in new research by biologists at the University of Texas, Austin, published in the journal eLife, “Magnetosensitive neurons mediate … Continue reading

  • Fire and Brimstone: Why Earth Isn’t Like Venus

    Both planets have abundant sulfur, but Earth life has a way of cycling it for good. The recent evidence for active volcanism on Venus (Science Magazine, Science Daily) has excited planetary scientists who long suspected it. Eight years ago, spikes in … Continue reading

  • Astronomers Lie about Star Formation

    A look at the evidence behind the latest claim of the universe’s earliest stars shows nothing of the sort. And that’s not the biggest whopper. “Astronomers claim first glimpse of primordial stars,” Nature News announces. Daniel Clery at Science Mag is even more brazen: “Astronomers … Continue reading

  • Stars by Jonathan Sarfati

    Stars have fascinated people from ancient times, as one of the most striking features of the night sky. Modern science has found many interesting facts about stars—in some cases, catching up with what God revealed in Scripture thousands of years … Continue reading

  • The truth … and nothing but the truth

    Recently I watched an episode of David Attenborough’s latest documentary series, Rise of Animals. With great skill and unwavering confidence he again presented the theory of evolution as if it were confirmed scientific fact—indeed no other view was considered worthy even … Continue reading

  • Colorful Dinosaur Eggs Challenge Deep Time

    German scientists revealed that some Chinese dinosaur eggs probably looked similar to the dark blue-green hue of modern emu eggs. If the dinosaur’s original pigment molecules revealed the egg’s color, then a significant question emerges. Can pigments really stay colorful … Continue reading

  • Two possible mechanisms linking cosmic rays to weather and climate

    Long-age interpretations of earth history have led uniformitarian climate scientists to conclude that dramatic climate fluctuations that occurred in the past could also occur in the present, with possibly disastrous consequences. Hence there is a subtle connection between ‘global warming’ … Continue reading

  • Attention Children of the 90s: ‘Bill Nye the Science Guy’ Has Been Added to Netflix

    If you grew up in the ‘90s, there’s a good chance you spent some of your childhood watching Bill Nye the Science Guy perform sweet experiments while also attempting to replicate them in your parents kitchen. We’ve got some exciting … Continue reading

  • More secular confusion about the moon’s former magnetic field

    A recent paper by Clèment Suavet et al.1 in theProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that uniformitarian scientists, who assume the world is billions of years old, are still very puzzled about the moon’s magnetic field. They don’t understand why it … Continue reading

  • A Cosmic ‘Supervoid’ vs. the Big Bang

    In a new paper, scientists have announced the discovery of an enormous region of lower-than-average galaxy density about three billion light-years from Earth.1,2 This “supervoid,” the largest single structure ever discovered at 1.8 billion light-years across, is newsworthy in its own … Continue reading

  • Saturn’s Enceladus Looks Younger than Ever by Brian Thomas, M.S.

    The more we learn about Enceladus, the younger it looks. Stated another way, the more that our space probes discover about this fascinating little moon that inhabits Saturn’s tenuous E ring, the more challenging it becomes for conventional origins to … Continue reading
