Same forces as today caused climate changes 1.4 billion years ago
University of Southern Denmark
Fluctuating climate is a hallmark of Earth, and the present greenhouse effect is far from the only force affecting today's climate. On a larger scale the Earth's climate is also strongly affected by how the Earth orbits around the sun; this is called orbital forcing of climate change. These changes happen over thousands of years and they bring ice ages and warming periods.

Saturn moon's ocean may have hydrothermal activity
University of Colorado Boulder
Scientists with NASA's Cassini mission, led by LASP and University of Colorado postdoctoral researcher, Sean Hsu, have found that microscopic grains of rock detected near Saturn imply hydrothermal activity is taking place within the moon Enceladus.

Violent collisions during Earth's formation led to metal rains
Science Alert
Earth is believed to have formed about 4.6 billion years ago, growing in size as a result of frequent collisions with asteroids. These collisions are thought to have initially happened at slow speeds, and became progressively faster as the planet grew in size. One especially large impact is thought to be responsible for the formation of our Moon.

No limit to life in sediment of ocean's deadest region
University of Rhode Island via ScienceDaily
Scientists have found oxygen and oxygen-breathing microbes all the way through the sediment from the seafloor to the igneous basement at seven sites in the South Pacific gyre, considered the "deadest" location in the ocean.
