    New Cool Science Findings

    I thought I would start a thread on "New Cool Science Findings" as they are discovered or talked about in detail.
    Obviously as a geologist I find these two below very fascinating. There are some great graphics and pics in these articles as well.

    Huge chunk of Yellowstone National Park, the size of Chicago, is 'breathing' in and out due to magma trapped underneath the surface

    • An area at the center of the Norris Geyser Basin was found to inflate and deflate
    • Experts have determined a intrusion of magma under the surface is to blame
    • Magma became trapped at the top and pushed the rocks up above it
    • The magma has since receded, putting the pulsating on pause for now

    Geologists find a lost fragment of an ancient continent filled with diamonds that formed part of Earth's continental crust 2.7 billion years ago in Canada's North Atlantic

    • Scientists find a diamond-filled hunk of the 2.7B-year-old North Atlantic Craton
    • The NAC forms part of the Earth's ancient crust that is now deep underground
    • The sample at a depth of more than 100 miles helps reconstruct Earth's geology
