An international group of specialists in the field of planetary sciences has found strong evidence that lava flows on Mars may also host base and precious metals.
Lava threatening a rural Hawaii town has stopped its slow, forward advance—for now.
Jeffrey Karson, a Syracuse University geologist who recently traveled to Iceland to monitor the early stages of the eruption, says the lava field now covers more than 22 square miles (or 14,000 acres), nearly the size of ...
