How was Earth formed? New Research reveals exciting answers regarding similar chemical origin in Earth and Planetary Objects

In 2005, a small variation in 142Nd was detected between chondrites, which are stony meteorites, considered essential building blocks of the Earth and terrestrial rocks

  • Neodymium-142 (142Nd) is one of seven isotopes found in the chemical element neodymium which may explain the origin of Earth and Solar system
  • In 2005, the small variation in 142Nd was detected between chondrites, which are stony Meteorite
  • These results were widely interpreted as an early differentiation of the interior of the Earth and these chondrites within the first 30 million years of its history

Ontario, September 15, 2016: Neodymium-142 (142Nd) is one of seven isotopes found in the chemical element neodymium which is widely distributed in the Earth’s crust and most commonly used for magnets in commercial products like microphones and in-ear headphones.

These results were widely interpreted as an early differentiation of the interior of the Earth (including the crust and mantle) and these chondrites within the first 30 million years of its history.

The new results published in the journal Nature from Bouvier and Boyet showed that these differences in 142Nd were in fact already present during the growth of Earth and not introduced later, as was previously believed.

“How the Earth was formed and what type of planetary materials were part of that formation are issues that have puzzled generations of scientists. And these new isotopic measurements of meteorites provide exciting answers to these questions about our origins and what made the Earth so special,” said Audrey Bouvier, Cosmochemist at the Western University.

    While everyone is busy making this planet come to an end
    Its really nice to read how Earth came into existence.

  • Anubhuti Gupta

    Tracing our origins is indeed a very curious and important subject.

  • Manthra koliyer

    Mother Earth has given us lots and we should preserve it.

Google has confirmed that Hangouts Meet is no longer a Hangouts product and will simply be known as Google Meet.

The rebrand will happen on a rolling basis, meaning it will take time for it to disseminate globally, reports Android Police.

Google’s Hangouts is just like any messaging platform with features like video calling, while Hangouts Chat is just for messaging and Meet is for meetings.

It probably wise to put the Google name front and center, as it does for so many of its other services Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Keep, Google Assistant and more.
