Cumbria and the Lake District: Spring 2018, No. 10

https://www.iancylkowski.com/cumbria-spring-2018/

The upper falls of Ritson's Force and its plunge pool; these can be found a short walk from the Wasdale Head Inn as you're heading into Mosedale.

The name of the waterfall has two components: it's named after Will Ritson, the 19th-century landlord of the Wasdale Head Inn, which now hosts the annual World's Biggest Liar competition in his honour; and the word "force" comes from the Old Norse foss meaning waterfall.

Sambar deer (Rusa unicolor)

Corbett National Park, Uttarakhand, India

This large animal is hard to see when it’s standing completely still in the thickets, assessing whether or not the approaching car with me in it is a danger or a nuisance.

Fortunately inside the park these beautiful creatures have very little fear of humans or their motorized vehicles, and will thus move only when they find it a nuisance. Yet some individuals do not trust or like the vehicles and will jump a few paces to make sure there are some trees in between.

Here the car stopped at a distance once we noticed it, and it looked at us for quite some time until it slowly wandered further into the forest.

New Earth-Sized Planet Found JUST 11 Light Years Away Could Support Life

A temperate Earth-sized planet has been discovered only 11 light-years from the Solar System by a team using ESO’s unique planet-hunting HARPS instrument. The new world has the designation Ross 128 b and is now the second-closest temperate planet to be detected after Proxima b.

It is also the closest planet to be discovered orbiting an inactive red dwarf star, which may increase the likelihood that this planet could potentially sustain life. Ross 128 b will be a prime target for ESO’s Extremely Large Telescope, which will be able to search for biomarkers in the planet's atmosphere.

With the data from HARPS, the team found that Ross 128 b orbits 20 times closer than the Earth orbits the Sun. Despite this proximity, Ross 128 b receives only 1.38 times more irradiation than the Earth. As a result, Ross 128 b’s equilibrium temperature is estimated to lie between -60 and 20°C, thanks to the cool and faint nature of its small red dwarf host star, which has just over half the surface temperature of the Sun.

Many red dwarf stars, including Proxima Centauri, are subject to flares that occasionally bathe their orbiting planets in deadly ultraviolet and X-ray radiation. However, it seems that Ross 128 is a much quieter star, and so its planets may be the closest known comfortable abode for possible life.

Although it is currently 11 light-years from Earth, Ross 128 is moving towards us and is expected to become our nearest stellar neighbour in just 79 000 years — a blink of the eye in cosmic terms. Ross 128 b will by then take the crown from Proxima b and become the closest exoplanet to Earth!
