China's Gold Demand Stagnates In 2014, A Year After Gold Rush Fueled By 'Grannies

Planets With Odd Tilting Habit Could Be Surprisingly Habitable: Study

Spinning planets that lean one way and then alter their orientation within a short geological time span could be surprisingly habitable, according to a new model developed by scientists at NASA.

The scientists said that the climate effects generated on these wobbling planets could prevent them from turning into glacier-covered ice boxes, even if the planets are located far from their stars. And, if liquid water can stay long enough on the surface, these planets could provide favorable conditions for life.
