    Temperate to Terrifying: Decoding Exoplanet Climate Catastrophes

    Lead Image: Researchers conducted a novel study on the runaway greenhouse effect, revealing how a critical threshold of water vapor can lead to catastrophic climate changes on Earth and other planets. The research reveals a significant cloud pattern that contributes to this irreversible climate change, providing insights into exoplanet climates and their potential to support life. A team from UNIGE together with CNRS has managed to simulate the entire runaway greenhouse effect, which can make a planet completely unhabitable. The Earth is a wonderful blue and green dot covered with oceans and life, while Venus is a yellowish sterile sphere…

    Think That Volcano Is Asleep? Think Again: Explosive Secrets Unveiled

    Lead Image: Researchers have studied the Ciomadul volcano to understand how long-dormant volcanoes can suddenly erupt. Their findings on the chemical and mineral composition of the magma provide valuable insights into volcanic reactivation and eruption forecasting, highlighting the potential dangers of inactive volcanoes. Credit: Even in a quiet dormant phase, a volcano can rapidly become active and its eruption can pose a previously unknown threat to the surrounding area. Can a volcano erupt after tens of thousands of years of dormancy? If so, how can this be explained and what makes volcanic eruptions more dangerous, i.e. explosive? These are…
