Why doesn’t Jupiter have bigger rings?

Due to its size, Jupiter should theoretically have even more specular rings than Saturn however research has shown that its massive moons are preventing this.

Understanding pulsars: exploring the first exoplanet detections

A survey of 800 pulsars by Jodrell Bank over the last 50 years has revealed less than 0.5% of all known pulsars could host Earth-mass planets.

London methane, natural gas

Methane responsible for 85% of natural gas emissions across London

Researchers analysing London’s atmosphere find that the city is releasing more methane than previously thought, due to natural gas infrastructure leaks.
