Predicted spread of humans around the world

This animated video, produced by the University of Hawaii, shows the spread of the human race across the globe over a 125,000 year period. Earth wobbles on its axis, causing major climate shifts. Some of those shifts turned the Arabian Peninsula into lush grassland that ancient humans could have traversed as they migrated out of Africa. Researchers at the University of Hawaii at Manoa simulated climate conditions over the last 125,000 years and predicted how those changes would have allowed humans to spread around the globe (increasing intensity of red shows greater predicted migration).

The world’s most dangerous volcano ?

The thing is, this is far from the only supervolcano on Earth, and many of them could easily rival the power of Wyoming’s own. So where are these supervolcanoes and which one of them really is the most dangerous in the world?

Let’s take a look, .................

Antarctica A86 Iceberg is now free

A one trillion tonne iceberg – one of the biggest ever recorded - has calved away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica. 

The calving occurred sometime between Monday 10th July and Wednesday 12th July 2017, when a 5,800 square km section of Larsen C finally broke away.
The iceberg, which is likely to be named A68, weighs more than a trillion tonnes. Its volume is twice that of Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes.
