The OTHER Indian Ocean

HE FAMOUS THREE AREN’T THE ONLY DESTINATIONS IN THE INDIAN OCEAN. BUT YOU MIGHT WANT TO KEEP THESE SECRET IDYLLS TO YOURSELF

THE RESIDENCE ZANZIBAR, TANZANIA

We can still hear the friendly cry of ‘Jambo!’ — the warm Swahili hello 11 HRSi that every member of staff greets you with, and its this super service at The Residence Zanzibar that really sets it apart as one slick operator. In 80 acres of palm forest, 66 elegantly designed villas blend Swahili and European influences with all the honeymoon must-haves (private pool, huge egg-shaped bath, butler service) as standard. This is how

On the surface

With its thick ice and frosty brine-spouting cryovolcanoes, the smooth surface of Europa is a strange place to observe.

Europa has an unusual-looking surface. It’s incredibly smooth for the most part – one of the smoothest objects in existence in the Solar System. That doesn’t mean that the moon is a featureless ball of ice, however. The icy surface is also cracked in places, and criss-crossed with numerous reddish-orange lines and splotches. There are also ridges, domes and possibly even cryovolcanoes. The exact mechanism for the formation of these features is unknown, and there are a number of contradictory theories.

Ocean breaks through Europas crust.

Jovian moon Europa is tipped to have an ocean of water flowing under its icy surface.

An underground ocean of water beneath the ice on Jupiter’s moon Europa appears to be capable of reaching the surface, according to Professor Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology. The discovery suggests that it may be possible to detect any life in the ocean simply by sampling the residue on the surface.

Europa is well known for being the most likely place in the Solar System, other than Earth, to be home to life. This is because of the 100km (62-mile) deep

Glowing inhabitants of the oceans

Even in ancient times Carthaginian and Arab sailors watched the glow of the sea. Carthaginian admiral Hanno in V. BC. e. He noted that in the south of CERN, he saw the sea, «burning into flames.» But the glow of the sea for the first time described the Portuguese navigator and commander of the XVI century Juan de Castro in his book on the Red Sea.

Now we have had many colorful descriptions of this phenomenon. Here are the most interesting ones.

Europa inside and out

Although Europa is an icy moon, evidence suggests that its composition is much like the rocky planets – an iron core surrounded by a silicate rock mantle.

The first evidence of a liquid ocean came from the Galileo spacecraft, which revealed that the moon has an induced magnetic field. In order for this to happen, there has to be a conductive layer under the surface and a salt water ocean is the most likely explanation. Although this part has been commonly accepted, there are two different possibilities for the ice layer: the thin ice model and the thick ice model.

Depth of the ocean

Omega’s new Seamaster Planet Ocean has been reworked and outfitted with the brand’s in-house chronograph movement. Does it sink or swim?

Omega got the watch world ’s attention in 1999 when it introduced the co-axial escapement. Never before had a brand used anything other than a Swiss lever escapement in a serially manufactured wrist-watch. At first, only specially modified ETA calibers were equipped with the new escapement, which was developed by George Daniels, but in 2007 it was also incorporated in Omega’s first manufacture movement, Caliber 8500.

This movement finally provided enough space to construct the co-axial escapement on three

Hot «interglacial period»

Perhaps the most stunning discovery in the XIX century (and indeed in the history of climatology) became a phenomenon called «freezing». It turned out that thousands of years ago the huge Arctic glaciers moved inland, covering almost all of Europe and North America. By the end of the road in front of the glaciers pushed the great masses of soil and rock fragments. After reaching a maximum, they left behind a pile of rubble in the form of chains of hills — the so-called «glacial moraines,» whose origin is a long time, geologists could not explain. As part of
