FULL METAL ASTEROID Long ago, molten iron could have erupted from the metal asteroid Psyche (illustrated in cross section) in a process dubbed ferrovolcanism, new studies suggest.
Metal asteroids may have once had iron-spewing volcanoes
An upcoming NASA mission could look for signs of past ‘ferrovolcanism’ on asteroid Psyche

Imagine a metal asteroid spewing molten iron, and you’ve got the gist of ferrovolcanism — a new type of planetary activity proposed recently by two research teams.
When NASA launches a probe to a metal asteroid called Psyche in 2022, planetary scientists will be able to search for signs of such volcanic activity in the object’s past. The new research “is the first time anyone has worked out what volcanism is likely to look like on these asteroids,” says planetary scientist Jacob Abrahams of the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Metal asteroids are thought to be the exposed iron-rich cores of planetesimals that suffered a catastrophic collision as the solar system was developing, before they could grow into full-sized planets. The naked core would have been exposed to cold space while still molten. And it would have cooled and solidified from the outside in, forming a solid iron crust that would be denser than the underlying molten iron, say Abrahams and planetary scientist Francis Nimmo, also of the University of California, Santa Cruz.
That kind of density mismatch is… Read the rest!
Whoa, just think… volcanoes… and nothin’ but volcanoes!
It’s 3 April. On this day in 1926 Virgil “Gus” Grissom was born. One of the original NASA Mercury Seven astronauts. Flew on Mercury Redstone-4 (Liberty Bell 7) and Gemini 3 (Molly Brown). NASA picture.
Gus will always be a Hero. This is late, sorry, it has been bonkers around here.

2-day gouache painting of Yi qi, the bizarre new membrane-winged scansoriopterygid. I wanted to see what the membrane would look like attaching further down on the body than in nearly every depiction I’ve seen so far, which show it attaching on the flank or at the armpit. I can’t get behind a leg-attachment point for this critter; it makes more sense to me that a long-legged animal would want its legs free and flexible. If a sprawling mobile hip-joint can be established for scansors, I’d potentially change my stance on that. Anyway, here’s a semi-new interpretation amidst a flood of recent restorations.
I’m definitely not convinced of powered flight for this critter, so here it is in an extended leap onto a log in pursuit of a Tiaojishan archisargid fly, Calosarugus.
Ooh arr, mateys, I love this!

Maserati MC12 GT1 Centenario – Accelerations, Fly Bys & V12 Sound!
Published on Mar 30, 2019
The MC12 Goodwood Cent 100 is a special one-off built by Maserati in 2014 to celebrate their centenary at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and using a spare chassis that was still in the factory (around 95% of the parts are “new”). Obviously the special paintjob is what makes the car unique which is decorated by artistic paintings of Maserati’s motorsport glories: Stirling Moss in a 250F, the MC12 FIA GT cars and even an outline of the Goodwood hillclimb route feature. It also has its distinctive silver-and-black Festival of Speed race number painted on, rather than the usual adhesive decal.
