Christopher Thornberg, a professor at UC Riverside and founder of Beacon Economics, asserts that people should live where they want, as long as they are not relying on government services to bail them out in a catastrophe.
New Exo-Venus simulations should help astrobiologists interpret NASA's TESS data
October 29, 2018
In preparation for what TESS and other new spacecraft will find, astrobiologists have simulated the climate of a potential Venus. A new paper by UCR's Stephen Kane suggests a model for the sun's energy impact on Venus is found with the exoplanet Kepler-1649b and its star. “It is almost identical to the Venus of our own solar system in terms of size and the energy it receives from its host star,” Kane said.
UC Riverside entomologist Hollis Woodard is featured in a Science Friday video that takes a look at how bumblebees make their queens. They don't make queens like honeybees; Woodard says the key may lie with bee vomit.
