Scientists believe a massive object that could change our understanding of history is hidden beneath the Antarctic ice. The huge and mysterious “anomaly” is thought to be lurking beneath the frozen wastes of an area called Wilkes Land. The area is 151 miles across and has a minimum depth of about 2,700 feet. Some researchers believe it is the remains of a truly massive asteroid more than twice the size of the Chicxulub space rock that wiped out the dinosaurs. If this explanation is true, it could mean this killer…

Antarctica Is Gaining Ice, Not Losing It. So What Does that Mean for Global Warming?

Good news. A recent study by NASA shows data from the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite (ICES) indicates that there have been “mass gains from snow accumulation”that “exceeded discharge losses” from the thinning glaciers. For a long time, researchers attributed the cause of rising sea levels to melting land-based ice and thermal expansion. However, this study puts the former under scrutiny on at least one major continent: Antarctica. Antarctica constantly loses ice on its Western side while gaining on its Eastern side. Until now, scientists thought that the loss is greater…
