/article/fighting-coronavirus-with-your-pc-or-mac
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - As of March 26, seven hundred thousand people involved in the Folding@Home project are using their home computers to form, in effect, the world’s fastest supercomputer.1 This virtual supercomputer can perform an astonishing billion, billion...

/article/volcanoes-geoengineering-post-flood-ice-age
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - A recent study in March 2020 suggested that sulfur dioxide (SO2) injected into Earth’s stratosphere could fight global warming, with a minimum of adverse effects.1,2 Here at ICR we generally think alarmism over “global warming”...

/article/cosmic-rays-sunspots-climate-change-2
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - Last month’s article described two possible mechanisms by which the sun could affect Earth’s weather and climate.1 Both mechanisms use the fact that the sun’s magnetic field greatly influences the number of fast-moving charged...

/article/spacecraft-model-construction-isolated-families
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - The European Space Agency has posted a number of do-it-yourself science activities for families homebound during the coronavirus pandemic.1 These include construction of paper models of the Cassini space probe. Like many probes before it, the...

/article/comet-atlas-nighttime-diversion-isolated-families
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - For northern-hemisphere families in isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic, a recently discovered comet may provide some needed diversion.1 This comet is dubbed ATLAS after the Hawaiian organization that discovered it: the Asteroid...

/article/actor-says-virus-is-earth-response-to-humanity
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - English actor Idris Elba believes the COVID-19 virus is a defensive action by the Earth against the harm humanity is doing to it.1 Elba and his wife have both tested positive for the virus but have not shown any symptoms.2 In a video interview...

/article/hot-jupiter-verge-destruction
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - Astronomers have discovered a Jupiter-sized extrasolar planet (exoplanet) orbiting so close to its host star that it is “perilously close” to the distance where it can be torn apart by gravitational forces.1-3 Astronomers call these...

/article/cosmic-rays-sunspots-climate-change-1
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - Sunspots are relatively cool blotches on the sun’s surface (Figure 1). The number of sunspots is an indicator of how active the sun is. It has the most sunspots when it’s most active—at solar maximum—and has a slightly...

/article/manganese-nodules-radiometric-dating
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - Pellets (or nodules) composed of various metals, such as manganese and iron, often litter the ocean floor. These nodules form when chemicals dissolved in seawater precipitate onto a small object lying on the ocean floor. Because these nodules are...

/article/do-earths-rocks-look-old/
Jake Hebert, Ph.D. - Some might argue that Earth’s rocks are obviously ancient even apart from radioisotope dating results. In response to creationist claims, they might ask, “If the earth was created just 6,000 years ago, then why does it look so...
