Participating in friendly competition with British and American scientists, February 8, 2012 the first Russian explorers have succeeded in its 20-year mission to drill Antarctic ice to reach the prehistoric Lake Vostok, hidden under the ice for more than 14 million years. Scientists were able to extract 40 liters of water to be studied.

In Antarctica is about 90% ice and 70% of the fresh water on Earth. The third largest continent can be compared to the U.S., increased by half. More than 200 subglacial lakes found in the depths of

Mystery of the vanishing energy of the Earth is solved

Mystery of the vanishing energy of the Earth solved Scientists prove

Two years ago, scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, published observational evidence of the "vanishing" of energy in the world. Scientists have discovered the discrepancy between the data on the heating of the Earth from satellites, and measurements of ocean heating.

Where the energy was lost? Or, perhaps, the researchers made a mistake in measuring the energy received from the sun and released back into space?

A group of scientists, meteorologists and oceanographers, led by Norman Loeb of the Langley Research Center of NASA

In anticipation of the next season they wonder how intense it will be? Tornado behaves unpredictably, do not allow any conclusions. 2011 was the second on record the extent of cruelty tornado. Then, in 1700 the United States
