A paper in Nature this month sheds light on how Venus lost all its water in its early history.
Could potentiallysome of earthquakes on earth be produced by gravitational waves?
In appearance a simple question: why do planets remain in their orbits, almost forever, in an apparently magic equilibrium of gravitation and centrifugal forces?
