For miles above the highest spires of New York City, the ice has turned. Uncountable billions of ice crystals, each of them just about a millimeter in length, have spontaneously organized. All together at once, as if hearing (or delivering) some unheard instruction, they are pointing. That way. That way.
Clean, fresh drinking water is a requirement for life, but the global supply of water is limited. Treatment of seawater or brackish water by filtration is one way to remedy this problem, and increasingly selective membranes for filtration are being developed to more efficiently remove water impurities.
The shapes, which NASA describes as “star-shaped and swallowtail-shaped tiny, dark bumps in fine-layered bright bedrock of a Martian ridge” recall gypsum crystals that are found in drying lakes on Earth, but of course, because Mars is not Earth, scientists are considering other explanations for these ...
According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, “New ice is usually very salty because it contains concentrated droplets called brine that are trapped in pockets between the ice crystals, and so it would not make good drinking water. As ice ages, the brine eventually drains through the ice, and by the ...
