Earth’s Moon May Not Be Critical to Life Afterall




Excerpt from space.com

The moon has long been viewed as a crucial component in creating an environment suitable for the evolution of complex life on Earth, but a number of scientific results in recent years have shown that perhaps our planet doesn't need the moon as much as we have thought.

In 1993, French astronomer Jacques Laskar ran a series of calculations indicating that the gravity of the moon is vital to stabilizing the tilt of our planet. Earth's obliquity, as this tilt is technically known as, has huge repercussions for climate. Laskar argued that should Earth's obliquity wander over hundreds of thousands of years, it would cause environmental chaos by creating a climate too variable for complex life to develop in relative peace.
So his argument goes, we should feel remarkably lucky to have such a large moon on our doorstep, as no other terrestrial planet in our solar system has such a moon. Mars' two satellites, Phobos and Deimos, are tiny, captured asteroids that have little known effect on the Red Planet. Consequently, Mars' tilt wobbles chaotically over timescales of millions of years, with evidence for swings in its rotational axis at least as large as 45 degrees. 


The stroke of good fortune that led to Earth possessing an unlikely moon, specifically the collision 4.5 billion years ago between Earth and a Mars-sized proto-planet that produced the debris from which our Moon formed, has become one of the central tenets of the 'Rare Earth' hypothesis. Famously promoted by Peter Ward and Don Brownlee, it argues that planets where everything is just right for complex life are exceedingly rare.

New findings, however, are tearing up the old rule book. In 2011, a trio of scientists — Jack Lissauer of NASA Ames Research Center, Jason Barnes of the University of Idaho and John Chambers of the Carnegie Institution for Science — published results from new simulations describing what Earth's obliquity would be like without the moon. What they found was surprising.

"We were looking into how obliquity might vary for all sorts of planetary systems," says Lissauer. "To test our code we began with integrations following the obliquity of Mars and found similar results to other people. But when we did the obliquity of Earth we found the variations were much smaller than expected — nowhere near as extreme as previous calculations suggested they would be."
Lissauer's team found that without the moon, Earth's rotational axis would only wobble by 10 degrees more than its present day angle of 23.5 degrees. The reason for such vastly different results to those attained by Jacques Laskar is pure computing power. Today's computers are much faster and capable of more accurate modeling with far more data than computers of the 1990s.

Lissauer and his colleagues also found that if Earth were spinning fast, with one day lasting less than 10 hours, or rotating retrograde (i.e. backwards so that the sun rose in the West and set in the East), then Earth stabilized itself thanks to the gravitational resonances with other planets, most notably giant Jupiter. There would be no need for a large moon. 

Earth's rotation has not always been as leisurely as the current 24 hour spin-rate. Following the impact that formed the moon, Earth was spinning once every four or five hours, but it has since gradually slowed by the moon's presence. As for the length of Earth's day prior to the moon-forming impact, nobody really knows, but some models of the impact developed by Robin Canup of the Southwest Research Institute, in Boulder, Colorado, suggest that Earth could have been rotating fast, or even retrograde, prior to the collision.

Tilted Orbits
Planets with inclined orbits could find that their increased obliquity is beneficial to their long-term climate – as long as they do not have a large moon.


"Collisions in the epoch during which Earth was formed determined its initial rotation," says Lissauer. "For rocky planets, some of the models say most of them will be prograde, but others say comparable numbers of planets will be prograde and retrograde. Certainly, retrograde worlds are not expected to be rare."

The upshot of Lissauer's findings is that the presence of a moon is not the be all and end all as once thought, and a terrestrial planet can exist without a large moon and still retain its habitability. Indeed, it is possible to imagine some circumstances where having a large moon would actually be pretty bad for life.

Rory Barnes, of the University of Washington, has also tackled the problem of obliquity, but from a different perspective. Planets on the edge of habitable zones exist in a precarious position, far enough away from their star that, without a thick, insulating atmosphere, they freeze over, just like Mars. Barnes and his colleagues including John Armstrong of Weber State University, realized that torques from other nearby worlds could cause a planet's inclination to the ecliptic plane to vary. This in turn would result in a change of obliquity; the greater the inclination, the greater the obliquity to the Sun. Barnes and Armstrong saw that this could be a good thing for planets on the edges of habitable zones, allowing heat to be distributed evenly over geological timescales and preventing "Snowball Earth" scenarios. They called these worlds "tilt-a-worlds," but the presence of a large moon would counteract this beneficial obliquity change.

"I think one of the most important points from our tilt-a-world paper is that at the outer edge of the habitable zone, having a large moon is bad, there's no other way to look at it," says Barnes. "If you have a large moon that stabilizes the obliquity then you have a tendency to completely freeze over."

Barnes is impressed with the work of Lissauer's team.
"I think it is a well done study," he says. "It suggests that Earth does not need the moon to have a relatively stable climate. I don't think there would be any dire consequences to not having a moon."

Mars' Changing Tilt
The effects of changing obliquity on Mars’ climate. Mars’ current 25-degree tilt is seen at top left. At top right is a Mars that has a high obliquity, leading to ice gather at its equator while the poles point sunwards. At bottom is Mars with low obliquity, which sees its polar caps grow in size.


Of course, the moon does have a hand in other factors important to life besides planetary obliquity. Tidal pools may have been the point of origin of life on Earth. Although the moon produces the largest tides, the sun also influences tides, so the lack of a large moon is not necessarily a stumbling block. Some animals have also evolved a life cycle based on the cycle of the moon, but that's more happenstance than an essential component for life.

"Those are just minor things," says Lissauer.

Without the absolute need for a moon, astrobiologists seeking life and habitable worlds elsewhere face new opportunities. Maybe Earth, with its giant moon, is actually the oddball amongst habitable planets. Rory Barnes certainly doesn't think we need it.
"It will be a step forward to see the myth that a habitable planet needs a large moon dispelled," he says, to which Lissauer agrees.
Earth without its moon might therefore remain habitable, but we should still cherish its friendly presence. After all, would Beethoven have written the Moonlight Sonata without it?

Meteorite is ‘hard drive’ from space ~ Researchers decode ancient recordings from asteroid ~ BBC


Pallasite meteorite
The Esquel meteorite consists of gem-quality crystals embedded in metal.



Excert from bbc.com

Researchers have decoded ancient recordings from fragments of an asteroid dating back billions of years to the start of the Solar System. 

They found tiny "space magnets" in meteorites which retain a memory of the birth and death of the asteroid's core.
Like the data recorded on the surface of a computer hard drive, the magnetic signals written in the space rock reveal how Earth's own metallic core and magnetic field may one day die.

The work appears in Nature journal.

Using a giant X-ray microscope, called a synchrotron, the team was able to read the signals that formed more than four-and-a-half billion years ago, soon after the birth of the Solar System.

It's like a cosmic archaeological mission”
Dr James Bryson University of Cambridge
The meteorites are pieces of a parent asteroid that originally came from asteroid belt, between Mars and Jupiter.
They represents the left-over fragments of a planet that failed to form. The magnetic recording within it traps a signal of the precise moments when an iron-rich core formed in the asteroid as well as when it froze, killing its magnetic field.
The new picture of metallic core solidification in the asteroid provide clues about the magnetic field and iron-rich core of Earth.
Core values "Ideas about how the Earth's core evolved through [our planet's] history are really changing at the moment," lead researcher Dr Richard Harrison, from the University of Cambridge, told BBC News.
"We believe that Earth's magnetic field is linked to core solidification. Earth's solid inner core may have started to form at very interesting time in terms of the evolution of life on Earth.
"By studying an asteroid we get to see this in fast forward. We can see the start of core solidification in the magnetic records as well as its end, and start to think about how these processes work on Earth."

Magnetic fieldThe Earth's magnetic field will likely die off when the core completely freezes
The meteorites studied by the team originally fell to Earth in Argentina, and are composed of gem-quality crystals enclosed in a metallic matrix of iron and nickel. 

Tiny particles, smaller than one thousandth the width of a human hair, trapped within the metal have retained the magnetic signature of the parent asteroid from its birth in the early Solar System.

"We're taking ancient magnetic field measurements in nano-scale materials to the highest ever resolution in order to piece together the magnetic history of asteroids - it's like a cosmic archaeological mission," said Dr James Bryson, the paper's lead author. 

"Since asteroids are much smaller than Earth, they cooled much more quickly, so these processes occur on a shorter timescales, enabling us to study the whole process of core solidification."

Prof Wyn William, from the University of Edinburgh, who was not involved in the study, commented: "To be able to get a time stamp on these recordings, to get a cooling rate and the time of solidification, is fantastic. It's a very nice piece of work."

The key to the long-lived stability of the recording is the atomic-scale structure of the iron-nickel particles that grew slowly in the asteroid core and survived in the meteorites. 

Making a final comment on the results, Dr Harrison said: "In our meteorites we've been able to capture both the beginning and end of core freezing, which will help us understand how these processes affected the Earth in the past and provide a possible glimpse of what might happen in the future."

The Best Bet for Alien Life May Be in Planetary Systems Very Different From Ours




Excerpt from wired.com


In the hunt for extraterrestrial life, scientists started by searching for a world orbiting a star just like the sun. After all, the steady warmth of that glowing yellow ball in the sky makes life on Earth possible.

But as astronomers continue to discover thousands of planets, they’re realizing that if (or when) we find signs of extraterrestrial life, chances are good that those aliens will orbit a star quite different from the sun—one that’s redder, cooler, and at a fraction of the sun’s size and mass. So in the quest for otherworldly life, many astronomers have set their sights on these small stars, known as red dwarfs or M dwarfs.

At first, planet-hunting astronomers didn’t care so much about M dwarfs. After the first planet outside the solar system was discovered in 1995, scientists began hunting for a true Earth twin: a rocky planet like Earth with an orbit like ours around a sun-like star. Indeed, the search for that kind of system drove astronomers through most of the 2000s, says astronomer Phil Muirhead of Boston University.

But then astronomers realized that it might be technically easier to find planets around M dwarfs. Detecting another planet is really hard, and scientists rely on two main methods. In the first, they look for a drop in a star’s brightness when a planet passes in front of it. In the second, astronomers measure the slight wobble of a star, caused by the gentle gravitational tug of an orbiting planet. With both of these techniques, the signal is stronger and easier to detect for a planet orbiting an M dwarf. A planet around an M dwarf also orbits more frequently, increasing the chances that astronomers will spot it.

M dwarfs got a big boost from the Kepler space telescope, which launched in 2008. By staring at small patch of the sky, the telescope searches for suddenly dimming stars when a planet passes in front of them. In doing so, the spacecraft discovered a glut of planets—more than 1,000 at the latest count—it found a lot of planets around M dwarfs. “Kepler changed everything,” Muirhead said. Because M-dwarf systems are easier to find, the bounty of such planets is at least partly due to a selection effect. But, as Muirhead points out, Kepler is also designed to find Earth-sized planets around sun-like stars, and the numbers so far suggest that M-dwarfs may offer the best odds for finding life.

“By sheer luck you would be more likely to find a potentially habitable planet around an M dwarf than a star like the sun,” said astronomer Courtney Dressing of Harvard. She led an analysis to estimate how many Earth-sized planets—which she defined as those with radii ranging from one to one-and-a-half times Earth’s radius—orbit M dwarfs in the habitable zone, the region around the star where liquid water can exist on the planet’s surface. According to her latest calculations, one in four M dwarfs hosts such a planet.

That’s higher than the estimated number of Earth-sized planets around a sun-like star, she says. For example, an analysis by astronomer Erik Petigura of UC Berkeley suggests that fewer than 10 percent of sun-like stars have a planet with a radius between one and two times that of Earth’s.

This illustration shows Kepler-186f, the first rocky planet found in a star's habitable zone. Its star is an M dwarf.

M dwarfs have another thing going for them. They’re the most common star in the galaxy, comprising an estimated 75 percent of the Milky Way’s hundreds of billions of stars. If Dressing’s estimates are right, then our galaxy could be teeming with 100 billion Earth-sized planets in their stars’ habitable zones.

To be sure, these estimates have lots of limitations. They depend on what you mean by the habitable zone, which isn’t well defined. Generally, the habitable zone is where it’s not too hot or too cold for liquid water to exist. But there are countless considerations, such as how well a planet’s atmosphere can retain water. With a more generous definition that widens the habitable zone, Petigura’s numbers for Earth-sized planets around a sun-like star go up to 22 percent or more. Likewise, Dressing’s numbers could also go up.
Astronomers were initially skeptical of M-dwarf systems because they thought a planet couldn’t be habitable near this kind of star. For one, M dwarfs are more active, especially during within the first billion years of its life. They may bombard a planet with life-killing ultraviolet radiation. They can spew powerful stellar flares that would strip a planet of its atmosphere.

And because a planet will tend to orbit close to an M dwarf, the star’s gravity can alter the planet’s rotation around its axis. When such a planet is tidally locked, as such a scenario is called, part of the planet may see eternal daylight while another part sees eternal night. The bright side would be fried while the dark side would freeze—hardly a hospitable situation for life.

But none of these are settled issues, and some studies suggest they may not be as big of a problem as previously thought, says astronomer Aomawa Shields of UCLA. For example, habitability may depend on specific types and frequency of flares, which aren’t well understood yet. Computer models have also shown that an atmosphere can help distribute heat, preventing the dark side of a planet from freezing over.

I Am All You Need

Beloved ones, it doesn't matter what name you call Me, or even if you believe in Me at all. While the mind might reach for explanations, the heart knows that I Am Real. I Am the center of your life and of your being. I Am the strands of Light from which you are woven.

If you allow Me now, I will activate your heart, that each of you might find yourself alive in Me, experiencing the life that I make and experiencing Love as the truth of your being. Then, your heart will walk with Me through everything that the world of the mind presents and you will be free, for I will feed you from this Love and your heart will free you to live in this abundance that never ends.


This, beloved ones, is the only shift that must be made. There is nothing that you need to figure out, for the moment that you allow your heart to fully open, then your experience of life will change. Until now you have been perceiving this Shift to the Heart through the perceptual filters of your ego-mind. When you allow your heart to become the center through which you live, then all that you see and experience will be founded in this endless peace, this Love, this beauty and the fecundity of God.

I Am life making more of itself. I Am Love knowing itself expanded and if you walk with Me with an active and open heart, then everything reveals this endless beauty that we create together. Walk with Me as the center of your life and being and no matter what the world says is before you, Love will clear the path and bring you everything.

Love will feed you and bring you all you need to know the truth through the vehicle of Love, the center of your being that is all you need to fund your life from pure Creation consciousness, to create as My heart with the power of never-ending Love. As the open heart of God I Am, you give to everyone, everything that Love brings forth as gifts to them.

So, your eyes might see a world that is filled with confusion and your mind might say that many good things failed, but as the active heart, the center of Creation, the vision of Love reveals the deeper truth of God and shows you the miracle of awakening life in every person, in every molecule, in every atom that dances the joy of harmony engaged in Making Love, until every breath is stunning in its majesty and you know yourself as the heart of All I Am. Knowing yourself, then each of you then knows Me, reflected as the world through Love's perfect vision.

Each person is revealed to be the mystery of the heart of Love unveiled. Even those things, beloved ones, that the mind sees as filled with fearful possibilities, the heart shall show you as the potential of Love to break free from the cage of dualistic seeing through the recognition that I Am Love and only Love is Real. I Am the strength that brings you easily to greater freedom, as you allow the active heart to reveal the most amazing life and it is your own.

I promise you, My dearest and most precious ones, as you step in tune with Me, heart active and open, you can literally walk through mine fields of every kind -- be they physical, mental or emotional -- and I, God, I who Am Creator -- shall guide your every step that you might find that right between the polarities of the ego's world is the beacon of the heart that guides your every step.

In these times of great change, Love's perfect guidance, the tender way you hear My voice, the reassurance of My presence and of your strength in Me will bring you through every challenge effortlessly. But so much more than this will always be revealed, for right between the polarities of ego, the active heart releases the dream of "not enough" -- frees everything and everyone it touches, brings back the purity of the surrendered life and the endless effervescent supply of life that feeds your consciousness, creates true heart awareness and wraps the world in the unity of this Love.

Step by step I Am present here and guiding you, and bringing you the gift of Love with every touch. Each life you see, each person you bless, everything that comes into your sphere of influence is effortlessly entrained to this perfection of Love, raised up to the highest and purest vibration of God that your vision which through the mind has ever been looking down…looking at the world it has made, the ground you walk upon … that this might fall away in an instant as the heart comes online.

The heart raises you up from your knees upon which you have been worshipping Me, be this figuratively or realistically, and opens you into your endless experience of yourself as the pure heart of all Creation, the heart of Love, the center of All I Am. In that instant that is Now, the assurance comes that there is no question that I Am always providing for you, for what life doesn't nourish the heart within it?

This Shift to the Heart, this joyous Heart Activation changes your experience of life right now and brings you the ongoing moment of pure bliss as you know yourself as the orgasmic heart of Creation itself and you become the vehicle through which I love.

Oh, dear ones, you finally know you are My heart giving. You are ever and always the pure and open conduit of Love. You are singing forth the truth of every being that one moment in the presence of this active heart, alive in you, bring effortless entrainment, bringing every life into its perfect place in the dance and bringing the acceptance of all these endless gifts.

So if you find yourself beholding the world in trepidation, if you feel those waves of fear rising up, if the duality play of daily life hooks you again, simply return and choose to live the heart, to be the heart of God I Am, integrated soulfully, so that only Love's Will moves you.

Just as you breathe, so too do you absorb this Love, taking it in, allowing it to feed you, receiving Love's atomic power to fuel your life and letting your active heart bring the expansion of Love and the consciousness of Love itself, until you are the experience of the ecstasy of extending this gift of God -- until you feel yourself interwoven with Me perfectly, until you know yourself as this heart, this conduit of Love given to you, that you might accept your true identity and all that Love provides.

What I Am saying here to each of you is that I Am more than enough. I Am the Source of all you are and of all you need, not only to sustain your life but to allow the very riches of Creation itself to burst forth in freedom and to know the truth as power and beauty, grace and peace and unending Love live as the truth of your being through our communion, by whatever name you call Me.

Whatever definitions you have held, dear ones, let this Love supersede them all through direct experience. Please let Me in. Let Me come and touch your heart. Let Me electrify it. Let Me throw open the doorway of heart perception and please, let the Will of Love I Am be fulfilled in you that the wonder, the miracle and the mystery can now be present as your life and as the world.

Please, beloved ones, make room for Me. Let Me come and walk with you. Let Me activate your heart that you might be truly alive with the atomic power of Love expanding your boundaries and the explosion, this explosion of Love easily changing everything -- how you see and feel and how effortlessly you allow joy, how perfectly you allow the provision of Love to fund your life, to fuel your every moment and to bring to you the most magnificent experience of the expression of this Love as your counterpart, the essence of your heart made manifest that you might see and feel and deeply know My Love for you…

…that you might give it to all who need it…this Love…this power…this joy of life that parts the waters of the illusory world of the dualistic mind and reveals the heart's reality of Love and plenty that in every Now Moment I might be your guide and also be your Real identity, the fully awake center of Love.

The heart of God I Am shall entrain it all, magnetizing every heart to this miracle and every life to the gift of transformation that just as the butterfly, you find yourself free at last after all the work of transforming…that you might realize that this is who you have been all along, the heart of God, unlimited.

Only your heart can know Me and it knows Me perfectly, but you have been living with a veil of fear around it. Step into My presence and say "Yes" that Creation, the power of life may bring the unveiling, may open up that chrysalis that has so long held you, that you might spread the wings of your spirit and rejoice in freedom.

Just remember that in these times that might seem confusing to the mind, I Am your truth, your center, your activation of Love and I Am all you need.
