Acid mine drainage reduces radioactivity in fracking waste
ScienceDaily
Much of the naturally occurring radioactivity in fracking wastewater might be removed by blending it with another wastewater from acid mine drainage, according to a Duke University-led study.

2014 NASA Planetary Science Summer School Applications Open
NASA
NASA is accepting applications from science and engineering post-docs, recent PhDs, and doctoral students for its 26th Annual Planetary Science Summer School, which will be held in three separate sessions in summer 2014 (June 16-20, July 14-18, and Aug. 11-15) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

During the program and pre-session webinars, student teams will carry out the equivalent of an early mission concept study, prepare a proposal authorization review presentation, present it to a review board, and receive feedback. By the end of the session, students will have a clearer understanding of the life cycle of a space mission; relationships between mission design, cost, and schedule; and the tradeoffs necessary to stay within cost and schedule while preserving the quality of science. The 2014 sessions will address planetary exploration missions needing power system trade-offs, including the use of solar electric vs. Multi-mission Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generators (MMRTG). The session in August will have a targeted focus on spacecraft power systems. Applications are due April 1, 2014. Partial financial support is available for a limited number of individuals. Further information is available at http://pscischool.jpl.nasa.gov.

Supervolcano triggers recreated in X-ray laboratory
Science Daily
Scientists have reproduced the conditions inside the magma chamber of a supervolcano to understand what it takes to trigger its explosion. These rare events represent the biggest natural catastrophes on Earth except for the impact of giant meteorites. Using synchrotron X-rays, the scientists established that supervolcano eruptions may occur spontaneously, driven only by magma pressure without the need for an external trigger. The results are published in Nature Geosciences.

Sea floor map result stuns experts
The New Zealand Herald
VideoBriefNew 3-D mapping has revealed remarkable features of a sprawling submerged ridge east of Auckland, New Zealand — a feat one scientist says is the undersea equivalent of Captain Cook mapping the coastline of New Zealand. Little was known about the Colville Ridge, stretching more than 200 kilometers towards Fiji, until a recent research voyage enabled marine geologists to map it in detail for the first time.

Geologists find diamond-producing rocks in Antarctica
io9
For the first time ever, geologists working in Antarctica have found a type of rock that's known to bear diamonds — a discovery that could expose the polar continent to opportunistic prospectors. Called kimberlite, it's a volcanic rock that appears in vertical structures called kimberlite pipes — the single most important source of mined diamonds today.

Massive exoplanets may be more Earth-like than thought
e! Science News
Massive terrestrial planets, called "super-Earths," are known to be common in our galaxy, the Milky Way. Now a Northwestern University astrophysicist and a University of Chicago geophysicist report the odds of these planets having an Earth-like climate are much greater than previously thought.
