New Research Calculates Speed of Ice Formation

Scientists have for the first time calculated the rate at which water crystallizes to form ice in a realistic computer molecule of water molecules. In a breakthrough research, a supercomputer offered a complete insight into the mechanism by which water turns from liquid state to a crystalline solid. The study conducted by two researchers from Princeton University, Amir Haji-Akbari, a ...

Not merely ice, Mars may have liquid water under surface: Study

The substance calcium perchlorate found in Mars soil that lowers the freezing point may have left the water under the surface in its liquid form still and may be present in very salty form as a brine, according to researchers. Perchlorate absorbs water vapor from the atmosphere and lowers the freezing temperature of water, indicating possible existence of transient liquid ...
