Iapetus Is Losing Its Dry Ice

first_imgHow long can a moon afford to leak?  Iapetus is losing its dry ice (carbon dioxide) through sublimation at a prodigious rate, say scientists in a paper in Icarus this month.1  “One can see that the long-term stability of CO2 is problematic.”    Solving the mystery of the dark side on this mystery moon has been a priority since Voyager days.  After the Sept. 10, 2007 flyby of Iapetus by Cassini (09/13/2007), a strange new theory was proposed: a runaway process makes the ice sublimate and migrate to the bright side or the poles (see Cassini press release from Oct 8, 2007).  This apparently happens to both water ice and carbon dioxide ice (dry ice); see 10/16/2007, bullet 3.    The new Icarus paper modeled what happens to the carbon dioxide.  Because it is so volatile, it sublimates to gas and starts moving.  The warmth of the dark side makes it leave the leading hemisphere permanently.  It migrates to cold traps at the poles – for awhile.  During Saturn’s 29.5 year orbit, the angle of sunlight shifts.  The carbon dioxide molecules leave one pole and migrate to the other in a series of 350 hops.  Thus, the CO2 moves from pole to pole each Saturnian year.    Not all of the gas makes it back.  Palmer and Brown calculated that 12% of it reaches escape velocity and leaves the moon each orbit, never to return.  Yet carbon dioxide was detected in abundance on the surface.  How could any be left after billions of years?  If Iapetus had started with a layer of carbon dioxide ice 5 km thick, they estimated, it could only last for 1.6 billion years.  That’s just about a third of the assumed age of the solar system (4.5 billion years).    One way to save the old age would be to add in more carbon dioxide over time.  The authors ruled out comets as a source, or vents from the interior, like on Enceladus (02/10/2007).  All they could suggest was that carbon dioxide is continually produced by photolysis of the unknown dark material.  Yet the dark layer is known to be thin, because fresh meteor impacts show bright ice underneath.    In any case, they think, the carbon dioxide could not be primordial (as old as the moon); “due to the large escape rate of CO2 from the surface, any free CO2 ice found on Iapetus implies active production, such as photochemical generation, liberation during an impact, or by an active vent.”1.  Eric E. Palmer and Robert H. Brown, “The stability and transport of carbon dioxide on Iapetus,” Icarus, Volume 195, Issue 1, May 2008, Pages 434-446, doi:10.1016/j.icarus.2007.11.020.Do they have any evidence for photochemical generation, liberation during an impact, or active vents?  None whatsoever.  They have been forced into hand-waving to explain away their debt of billions of years.  They thought they could just drop in the Bank of Time again and make another one of their reckless drafts (07/02/2007).  This time, the teller Japheth (the root name of Iapetus) is refusing to heed their song and dance, saying they can’t withdraw any more billions without showing some collateral.(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

USbased Indian couple scientist killed in California boat fire

first_imgLos Angles: A US-based Indian couple and an Indian-origin scientist were among those who died from smoke inhalation when they were trapped on a boat packed with scuba divers that caught fire and sank off the California coast, according to media reports. On Monday, a massive fire broke out on the 75-foot charter boat called ‘Conception’ when the passengers were sleeping below the deck. The fire engulfed the deck, killing 34 people, including one crew member. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USFive crew members who were above the deck escaped by jumping overboard. The couple, Kaustubh Nirmal and Sanjeeri Deopujari, lived in Connecticut and were among the people who died aboard the vessel, during a three-day diving excursion. Deopujari, 31, was a dentist in Norwalk while her husband, Nirmal, 44, worked as a senior adviser at Ernst & Young, the New York Post reported. The were married two and a half years ago and were “the perfect couple,” said Nirmal’s cousin, Rajul Sharma, told the Los Angeles Times.

Neighbours at the couple’s apartment building remembered them. “They were very nice, kind. So we’re in shock. Our hearts go out to them. It’s incredibly sad,” a neighbour said. Indian-origin scientist Sunil Singh Sandhu, 46, was also there on a dive vessel that sank off Santa Barbara in California. Sandhu lived and worked in the US for more than two decades, took up scuba diving only recently, his family in Singapore was quoted as saying by Singapore-based The New Paper. Sandhu earned his master’s and doctoral degrees from the Stanford University and worked as a scientist at a Palo Alto research company. He was a newcomer to scuba diving, picking up the sport two months before his death. “I didn’t know that he was going for another trip,” his father, Soji Singh said. “I had been trying to persuade him to come back to Singapore.” The massive fire was reported to be one of California’s worst maritime disasters in decades.last_img read more

Catalan separatists regain majority in regional election

first_imgBARCELONA, Spain – Catalonia’s secessionist parties won enough votes Thursday to regain a slim majority in the regional parliament and give new momentum to their political struggle for independence from Spain.It was hardly an emphatic victory, however, as the separatists lost support compared to the previous vote in 2015, and a pro-unity party for the first time became biggest single bloc in the Catalan parliament.The result left more questions than answers about what’s next for Catalonia, where a long-standing push for independence escalated to a full-on clash with the Spanish government two months ago.It was also a blow to Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who as a result of the separatists’ defiance ousted the Catalan Cabinet and called the early election hoping to keep them out of power.Instead, the election’s outcome favoured fugitive former Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont, who campaigned from Belgium where he is evading a Spanish judicial probe into the attempt to split from Spain. The investigation could lead to charges of rebellion and sedition that carry penalties of decades in prison.Puigdemont, who got the most votes of any separatist candidate, greeted the results with delight and called them a rebuke to Spain’s central government.“The Spanish state has been defeated,” Puigdemont said. “Mariano Rajoy has received a slap in the face from Catalonia.”In a televised appearance from Brussels, the 54 year-old former journalist didn’t make clear if he would try to return home, where an arrest warrant awaits him.The other main winner was Ines Arrimadas, the leading unionist candidate. Scoring 25 per cent of the votes, her pro-business Ciutadans (Citizens) party won 37 seats, which will be the biggest single bloc in the 135-seat regional assembly.“The pro-secession forces can never again claim they speak for all of Catalonia,” Arrimadas said, promising her party will continue to oppose the separatists. “We are going to keep fighting for a peaceful co-existence, common sense and for a Catalonia for all Catalans.”But pro-independence parties — Puigdemont’s Junts per Catalunya (Together for Catalonia), left-republican ERC and the anti-capitalist CUP — together won 70 seats, two above a majority but two less than in the previous parliament. The three groups fell short of winning a majority of votes, though, getting 48 per cent of the total.“The election has resolved very little,” said Andrew Dowling, a specialist in Catalan history at Cardiff University in Wales. “Independence has won but in a way similar to 2015 — majority of seats but not in votes.”Dowling said that with the independence vote not reaching over half of the ballots cast, the European Union was not likely to get involved although the bloc will be keen on seeing the Spanish government actively address Catalonia’s grievances.Rajoy has said that taking over control of the region again would be something he would consider if independence is sought by a new Catalan government. Spain’s constitution bars secession.Thursday’s election saw a record turnout of nearly 82 per cent of the 5.5 million eligible voters in Catalonia.The election was held under highly unusual circumstances, with several pro-independence leaders either jailed or in self-imposed exile for their roles in staging a banned independence referendum that was declared illegal by Spain’s highest court.Eight of the absent politicians were elected as lawmakers. Unless their status changes, they will have to renounce their seats and pass them on to other party members or else the pro-independence bloc could be down a crucial share of votes.Weeks of campaigning involved little debate about regional policy on issues such as public education, widening inequality and unemployment. At the heart of the battle instead was the recent independence push that led to Spain’s worst political crisis in decades.Tensions have been high in Catalonia since an Oct. 1 referendum backed independence, when Spanish police used rubber bullets and batons against voters who tried to block them from removing ballots from polling stations. Separatist regional lawmakers made a unilateral declaration of independence Oct. 27, prompting Spain’s national government to take the dramatic step of firing the regional government and dissolving the Catalan parliament. Courts later ordered the arrest of the former Catalan leaders.No incidents were reported during voting Thursday.A new Catalan attempt to secede would also be an unwelcome development for the European Union, which is already wrestling with legal complications from Britain’s planned exit from the bloc. Senior EU officials have backed Rajoy, and no EU country has offered support for the separatists.Catalonia’s independence ambitions also have scant support in the rest of Spain.The outcome of the political battle is crucial for the region, which accounts for 19 per cent of Spain’s gross domestic product. An economic slowdown has been the most immediate consequence of the Catalan independence push. Spain’s central bank last week cut its national growth forecasts for next year and 2019 to 2.4 per cent and 2.1 per cent, respectively, cutting a percentage point off its previous predictions and citing the conflict in Catalonia as the cause.___Associated Press writer Aritz Parra reported this story in Barcelona and AP writer Ciaran Giles reported from Madrid. AP writers Joseph Wilson and Karl Ritter in Barcelona, Lorne Cook in Brussels and Barry Hatton in Lisbon, Portugal, contributed to this report.last_img read more
