FAST will also cover two to three times more sky area thanks to its innovative design of an active primary surface. A science instrument with an order of magnitude improvement in any of its capacities which is also able to explore new dimensions in parameter space is likely to generate unexpected discoveries.

FAST aims to find out more on the greatest mysteries of our universe such as dark matter and dark energy, and would also seek out gravitational waves and radio emissions from stars and galaxies, and possible signs of intelligent extraterrestrial life. In theory, if there is civ... More →

Cecille De Jesus reports that it takes between three to six months for a probe to reach Mars from Earth. A new concept space train called Solar Express is challenging that time frame ... it would, hypothetically, be able to transport people and cargo from earth to Mars in less than two days.

Imaginactive founder, Charles Bombardier, and his team aim to create Solar Express in a way were it could travel at around 1% the speed of light, which is 3,000 km (1,864 miles) per second. The concept started out with identifying what makes space travel expensive and inefficient. In space, the ... More →

Dr. Conca reports that scientists at the GE Global Research Center have been developing a better material for use in the solar industry. First discovered in attempts to produce artificial diamonds, silicon carbide (SiC) is likely to replace silica in the semiconductor and solar industries, significantly increasing their efficiency and speed.

SiC is a synthetic crystalline compound of silicon and carbon with diamond-like strength and resistance to high temperatures, along with excellent abilities to conduct electricity. The most effective application of SiC in the solar industry is i... More →

Matt Williams opines that the public goal stated by NASA, ESA, the Russians, the Chinese, India, etc., etc. for obtaining samples from the Moon is about understanding the chronology of the Moon. The timescale we have developed for the Moon are anchored in the Apollo samples. The next Moon samples will attempt to sample other time periods so we can determine if our time scales are correct.

However, the actual objective of exploration on the Moon, Mars, and the asteroids is to lay the foundation for developing natural resources offworld and for leaning how to go about colonization of... More →

1. McArthur River Mine, Canada
2015 mine production: 7,354 tonnes

Located in Saskatchewan, Canada, the McArthur River mine is the largest uranium mine, and its annual output dwarfs that of other projects. Production at the McArthur River mine dropped slightly from 7,356 in 2014 to 7,354 in 2015. In 2015, the mine accounted for 12% of uranium mined worldwide.

Major miner Cameco holds a 69.8% stake in McArthur River and is its operator. It is entitled to 234.9 million pounds in proven and probable uranium reserves. AREVA Resources Canada, a subsidiary of AREVA owns the... More →

Steve Hatfield-Dodds, et al., report that over two centuries of economic growth have put undeniable pressure on the ecological systems that underpin human well-being. While it is agreed that these pressures are increasing, views are divided on how they may be alleviated.

Some suggest technological advances will automatically keep us from transgressing key environmental thresholds. Others that policy reform can reconcile economic and ecological goals. While a third school argues that only a fundamental shift in societal values can keep human demands within the Earth ecological limit... More →

Satoshi Ide, et al, report that the possibility that tidal stress can trigger earthquakes has been long debated. In particular, a clear causal relationship between small earthquakes and the phase of tidal stress is elusive. However, they claim that tectonic tremors deep within subduction zones are highly sensitive to tidal stress levels, with tremor rate increasing at an exponential rate with rising tidal stress. Thus, slow deformation and the possibility of earthquakes at subduction plate boundaries may be enhanced during periods of large tidal stress. They calculated that the tidal-stress hi... More →

Northern Minerals flagship project is the Browns Range project in Western Australia and has a number of deposits and prospects containing high-value dysprosium and other HREs, hosted in xenotime mineralisation. Dysprosium is an essential ingredient in the production of NdFeB (neodymium iron-boron) magnets used in clean energy and high technology solutions. The project xenotime mineralization facilitates the use of a relatively simple and cost-effective processing flowsheet to produce a high-grade dysprosium rich-mixed rare earth oxide.

Northern claims that one of the key features of... More →

Sally Asher reports that the Oklahoma Geological Survey, a state research and public service agency affiliated with the University of Oklahoma, College of Earth and Energy, has almost 20 studies underway to learn more about earthquakes and what causes them, especially in the Arbuckle Formation.

The Arbuckle formation, where oil and gas companies dispose of excess water from oil and gas production, is the preferred injection zone in Oklahoma. It is above the crystalline basement.

Dr. Jeremy Boak, Executive Director of OGS, said a number of studies are underway, most of wh... More →

WNN reports that Energy Fuels will prioritize work at its Canyon mine in Arizona under a revised business plan, which focuses on sustaining the company production capabilities whilst ensuring it is able to respond quickly to any changes in market conditions.

The Lakewood, Colorado-based company set out its plans in its latest operational update and 2017 production guidance, published yesterday. The main emphasis of the business plan is to sustain production capabilities and uranium resources, whilst retaining production scalability and optionality, including permitted mining and pro...
