Portland sits in a flat basin of northwest-oriented bugs where it meets the rugged terrain of the Coast Range. These defects tend to experience compression as well as lateral movement due to the combination of tectonic forces. Long-term faulty movements often leave a unique, linear mark in the landscape, although the great moisture and vegetation in this area does a …

NASA probe leaking asteroid samples due to jammed door News

Images beamed back to ground control revealed that it captured more material than scientists expected and spit excess flaking asteroid rocks into space. An American probe that collected a sample from an asteroid earlier in the week retrieved so much material that a rock is clamped in the container door so rocks could run out into space. On Tuesday, the …
