    Thaw reveals Antarctic explorer's century-old notebook

    A photographic notebook from Robert Scott's ill-fated Antarctic expedition has been found after a century trapped in the ice of the frozen continent, New Zealand's Antarctic Heritage Trust said. It belonged to scientist George Murray Levick and was discovered outside Scott's 1911 Terra Nova base during last year's summer ice melt. Writing in the notebook remains legible but the binding has been dissolved by years of ice and water damage, the trust's executive director Nigel Watson said. The notebook is a missing part of the official expedition record," he said.

  • Earth hit by double asteroids 458 million years ago
    Earth hit by double asteroids 458 million years ago

    Some 458 million years ago, Earth was whacked in a double asteroid strike, leaving craters visible in Sweden today, space scientists reported on Thursday. The event, they said, can be traced to "one of the largest cosmic catastrophes" in the history of the Solar System -- a mighty collision in the asteroid belt around 12 million years earlier. With uplift of the Earth's crust, the signature of that event lies in central Sweden -- the 7.5-km Lockne crater, located around 20 kms south of the city of Oestersund, and a 700-metre (yard) crater at nearby Malingen. The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, backs long-standing suspicions that these craters, just 16 kms apart, were caused by a "doublet", an extremely rare double whammy caused by asteroids travelling in pairs.
