Island refuges for surviving nuclear winter and other abrupt sunlight-reducing catastrophes.
- GeologyRisk analysis : an official publication of the Society for Risk Analysis
Some island nations in the Southern Hemisphere might survive a severe sun-reducing catastrophe such as nuclear winter and be well placed to help reboot-collapsed human civilization. Such islands must…

Breakup of a long-period comet as the origin of the dinosaur extinction

This hypothesis explains the composition of the largest confirmed impact crater in Earth’s history as well as the largest one within the last million years, and predicts a larger proportion of impactors with carbonaceous chondritic compositions than would be expected from meteorite falls of main-belt asteroids.
Minimum Number of Settlers for Survival on Another Planet
- PhysicsScientific Reports
It is shown here that a mathematical model can be used to determine the minimum number of settlers and the way of life for survival on another planet, using Mars as the example, and if this relatively low number is confirmed, survival on other planet might be easier than expected, provided that the organization of the settlers is appropriate.
