Tyrannosaurs rex (pictured) was a species of bird-like carnivorous dinosaur.  It lived 68 to 66 million years ago in what is now the western part of North America.

T.rex Was 70% Bigger Than Previously Thought And Could Weigh Up To 33,000 Pounds, Study Finds

The infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex – or T. rex – could have weighed up to 33,000 pounds (15,000 kg) when it roamed the Earth. It’s a little more than the weight of two elephants or a London double-decker bus, and it’s 70% more than previously thought. Researchers at the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa built …

Sea level rise could push Britain's coastline back up to 22 meters (72ft) by 2100, new study finds

Sea level rise could shrink Britain’s coastline by up to 72ft by 2100, study finds

Sea level rise could cause Britain’s coastline to recede by up to 22 meters (72ft) by 2100, a new study has found. Researchers from Imperial College London have modeled the consequences that different future scenarios of climate change will have on the country’s cliffs. They found that by the end of the century the rocky …

New study claims Mars was covered by oceans 984 feet deep 4.5 billion years ago

The red planet was once BLUE: Mars was covered by oceans 300 meters deep 4.5 billion years ago

Now a desolate red desert, a new study has claimed that Mars was once actually mostly blue. While researchers have long agreed that our red neighbor once held water, just how much water it had was a matter of debate. Now a new study has revealed that 4.5 billion years ago Mars was covered in …

Earth can regulate its temperature over hundreds of thousands of years to keep them within a stable range, new study confirms

Earth CAN regulate its temperature over thousands of years to keep the planet within a habitable range

Earth can regulate its temperature over hundreds of thousands of years to keep them within a stable range, a new study confirms. The planet contains a “stabilizing feedback” mechanism capable of preventing the climatic pendulum from swinging too much back and forth over long periods of time. This is thought to be accomplished through ‘silicate …
