NASA’s Perseverance rover discovered organic material in the Jezero Crater which could point toward the right ingredients for ancient life. The samples were found across rocks in the region, but they’ll need to be studied on Earth before NASA can draw real conclusions.
Scientists detected slow atmospheric waves called Pekeris waves (which were theorized to exist in 1937) for the first time after the 2022 Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai eruption. They were able to detect the waves using a suite of new tools including geostationary satellites and computer simulations.
Researchers observed persistent lung damage in children and teens following a Covid-19 infection using low-field MRI. CT scans have shown similar effects in adults but are ineffective in children. The scans show pulmonary dysfunction after infections without hospitalization.
