Carbon Capture and Storage: What Are the Big Issues and Opportunities for Future Energy Resources?
By: RASEIBoulder Summary: Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) can make significant cuts in Greenhouse Gas emissions and will need to be part of the forward planning for developing future global energy resources. CCS technology comprises a number of steps: 1) CO2 is captured at the source (e.g., a power plant or gas production facility); 2) the captured CO2 is compressed to a supercritical state and transported, typically via pipeline, from the source to the geologic storage site; 3) the CO2 is inje

Science Bulletins: Infant Stars Shimmer in Orion's Nebula
Sometimes two telescopes are better than one. Data gathered by the European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory and NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope have provided astronomers with an extraordinary view of young stars' growing pains. Combining two types of infrared vision revealed previously undetected bursts of stellar activity, with much faster cycles of heating and cooling than expected. The observations provide important data, which will help astronomers more fully understand the stages o
