    The Recently Discovered Fossilized Tail Of The First River Dinosaur, Spinosaurus Aegyptiacus (SA), In Southern Morocco, Indicates That Dinosaurs Were Not Only Land And Air Animals, But Were Also Powerful Swimmers That Adapted Quite Well In Water. The Study Notes That SA Prowled The Rivers That Flowed Through The Sahara Desert 100 Myrs Ago. Fascinating!

    The USGS, In Collaboration With NASA And The Lunar Planetary Institute, Have For The First Time Created A Detailed Map, 1:5,000,000 scale, Of The Entire Moon Surface Rock Types. The Geologic Map Is Expected To Aid Future Moon Missions And Used As A Learning Tool. The Map Was Created From Recent Satellite Missions And Historic Apollo-Era Data. Cool!!

    Earth Now Has A Temporary New Mini Moon, Called 2020 CD3, Which Measures About 6 Feet To 11 Feet Across And With Orbit That Suggests It Entered Earth’s Orbit About 3 Years Ago. This Is The Second Asteroid To Be Captured By Earth’s Gravity After An Asteroid Named “2006 RH120” Was Captured In June 2006 And Stayed Until Around September 2007.

    The Oldest Known Asteroid Impact Crater, “Yarrabubba Crater,” May Have Been Discovered In Australia. The Impact, Dated To 2.229 Byr, Possibly Ended The Snow Ball Earth Glacial Condition Via Water Vapour, A Green House Gas, Hurtled Into The Atmosphere. Another Implication Of This Discovery Is That Other Older Craters May Still Exist.

    Evidence Of The World Oldest Forest, A Fossilized Tree Root Dated To ~386 MYA, Was Discovered In An Abandoned Quarry In Cairo, NY, ~40 Miles South Of Albany. The Forest Is Said To Be 2-3 Myrs Older Than The Previously Discovered Forest In Gilboa, NY. This Discovery Provides A Snapshot Of Earth’s Evolution From No Forest To Being Forested.

    Many Elephants Are Held In Captivity For Research, Conservation, And Tourism. But, According To A Recent Study, Asian Elephants Held In Captivity Are Hindered In Reproduction For Over A Decade. And Calves, From Captured Females, Have Lower Survival Rates. ~16,000 Asian Elephants Are Held In Captivity In Countries Like Myanmar And India.

    An Extensive Sheet Of Pumice, A Very Light And Porous Volcanic Rock, From An Underwater Volcanoe, Near Tonga, Is Floating Towards Australia. The Pumice Sheet, About The Size Of Washington, D.C. (58 Square Miles), Could Act As A Medium For Carrying Marine Organisms To Replenish Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Cool!

    A Major Climate Regulator, The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), Is Said To Be Weakening. It’s Weaker Than It Was For 1000 Yrs. This Is Probably Due To An Increase In Fresh Water Influx As A Result Of Global Warming. Could The Next Ice Age Be On The Horizon? Only Further Studies And Time Will Tell.
