/article/comet-now-visible-to-the-naked-eye
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - Stargazers have been disappointed earlier this year by comets ATLAS and SWAN, which disintegrated before they could put on good celestial shows. But another comet is now appearing in the sky and delighting stargazers.1,2 This comet has been...

/article/saharan-dust-cloud-strikes-united-states
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - Recently, the southeastern United States was hit by a huge cloud of dust from the Sahara desert that drifted across the Atlantic Ocean. A second such cloud arrived soon after.1,2 These Saharan dust clouds are actually quite common, but this plume...

/article/titan-receding-from-saturn-faster-than-expected
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - Data obtained from the Cassini space probe show that Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, is receding away from Saturn a hundred times faster than scientists previously thought.1,2 Titan is moving away from Saturn for basically the same reason...

/article/lunar-recession-in-the-news
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - Recently, the issue of the moon’s motion away from Earth was discussed on a popular science website.1,2 The author of the article is a geologist who disputes the creationist claim that the moon’s gradual recession from the Earth is a...

/article/billions-of-years-of-lunar-rockfalls
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - A team of researchers used more than two million images obtained by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter to construct the first near-global map of rockfalls on the moon. The map shows more than 136,000 rockfalls between 80° northern and...

/article/universe-first-stars-are-missing
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - A recent attempt by European astronomers to use the Hubble Space Telescope to find evidence for the first stars expected by secular theory has failed. This is despite the Hubble Space Telescope’s ability to image objects at vast...

/article/testing-a-climate-change-assumption-update
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - About a month ago, some experts suggested that the coronavirus shutdown presented an opportunity to test the assumption that humans are responsible for increasing amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2).1 If humans, rather than natural...

/article/missing-ice-age-forests-fit-flood-ice-age-model
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - Secular scientists say Earth has experienced many Ice Ages. But the evidence for multiple Ice Ages is very weak.1 There is strong geological evidence for only the most recent of the supposed Ice Ages, which these scientists call the Last Glacial....

/article/most-distant-rotating-disk-galaxy-secular-models
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - Astronomers have determined that a distant galaxy discovered three years ago is rotating, making it the most distant rotating disk galaxy yet observed.1 This disk galaxy has been designated DLA0817g, but has been nicknamed the “Wolfe...

/article/physics-today-ignores-monster-milankovitch-problem
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - An overview of the Milankovitch (or astronomical) ice age theory appears in the May 2020 issue of Physics Today.1 This theory (hypothesis, really) holds that Earth’s rotational and orbital motions influence Earth’s climate over long...
