A motley crew of kids, scientists and politicians posed in front of a boxy machine at the Royal Ontario Museum on Thursday. The instrument, known as a laser altimeter, quickly scanned them to create a multi-dimensional map of the scene. Four years from now, a new version of that instrument will be sent to map something slightly trickier — the asteroid Bennu, a carbon-rich space rock with a fascinating, if slightly menacing, biography.
De nouvelles données américaines confirment la hausse continue des températures et l’ampleur de la crise climatique. La dépendance de l’humanité aux énergies fossiles se reflète de plus en plus sur le thermomètre planétaire. De nouvelles données scientifiques publiées lundi révèlent en effet que les derniers mois ont battu des records historiques à la hausse, tant sur les continents qu’à la surface des océans. Un signal de plus de l’aggravation de la crise climatique.
