*The strange dense structure discovered below the South Atlantic Anomaly

A strange dense structure has been discovered directly below the South Atlantic Anomaly and just above the Earth’s core mantle boundary. The object may provide important clues about the Earth’s magnetic field and when it’s next likely to reverse polarity.

*New gravity mission to monitor climate change

NASA’s next Earth Gravity mission is slated to launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on April 14. The twin GRACE-FO spacecraft will continue the work of the original GRACE mission, monitoring how climate change caused by man’s use of fossil fuels was affecting the planet.

*New exotic state of matter created

Scientists have provided proof for a new state of matter comprising an electron orbiting an atomic nucleus at such a great distance – the space between the two can contain other bound atoms. The discovery raises new questions about the definition of an atom.
