    •A 2,500-mile-wide column of molten rock has been discovered underground in the northern plains of Mars

    •Researchers said the plume is generating methane and hydrogen, which are critical ingredients for microbial life

Ronnagrams and quettameters

Say hello to ronnagrams and quettameters! Scientists pick new prefixes to express the world’s largest and smallest measurements

  • ‘Ronna’ and ‘quetta’ officially become prefixes for the largest-defined numbers
  • Meanwhile, ‘ronto’ and ‘quecto’ are prefixes for infinitesimally small numbers
  • They will help experts in the fields of data science, quantum science and more
