Egyptian creation myth Featured 6 Jan 2006 Print

Egyptian creation myth

Egyptian creation myth. 19th-century artwork of a story from the Egyptian creation myths from the third and second millennia BC. The Egyptians told the stories of creation as a series of births and cosmic battles between the gods. Shu the air god (centre) is raising Nut the sky goddess (blue, forming the arch of the sky) to separate her from Geb the earth god (across bottom). Nut is adorned with stars, while Geb is adorned with leaves. The sky, to the Egyptians, was a heavenly Nile, along which the boat of the sun-god Ra (upper left and upper right) sailed from east to west. Artwork from Pioneers of Science (Oliver Lodge, 1893)

Carbon dioxide ice on Mars, artwork Featured 6 Jan 2006 Print

Carbon dioxide ice on Mars, artwork

Carbon dioxide ice on Mars, computer artwork. This area is part of the carbon dioxide ice cap at the Martian South Pole. The large pits are where the carbon dioxide ice cap has sublimed to reveal ice layers below the surface. Mars is much colder than Earth, and has a thin atmosphere of carbon dioxide. Temperatures at the Martian south pole are low enough to maintain a residual carbon dioxide ice cap during the summer. Observations by the Mars Global Surveyor have shown that this carbon dioxide ice cap is gradually shrinking as these pits are enlarged each summer. This has been interpreted as evidence that the Martian climate is slowly warming. The surface dust is red/brown due to the high iron content of the rocks
