A problem with deep mines is that the pressure of the overlying rocks tends to collapse the hole. Scientists searching for water among the stars may have a new ally with an earthly counterpart: hail. Almost all measurements must be performed at great distances from the objects of interest, with no control over such quantities as their temperature, pressure, or chemical composition. Join us at GO-Science to meet young scientists from the fields of chemistry, biology, geology, physics and more.
