Things that can only happen in Monaco: divers to the rescue, prostitutes at home, the podium without a podium …

The Monaco Grand Prix is all Formula 1 summarized in a weekend. This sport is often understood by what is seen each year (except in the past, due to the health situation) on the streets of the Principality, whose dangerousness increases exponentially compared to other events in the championship, but which cannot be done without.

How Could Surface Minerals Get in Diamonds Found in The Deepest Depths of The Earth?

Diamonds that formed hundreds of kilometers deep below Earth's surface contain traces of chemical reactions that took place on the bottom of the ocean.Given that the bottom of the ocean is just 11 kilometers (6.8 miles) down at its deepest point, this may seem rather odd – but those diamonds are a really valuable clue for understanding the exchange of material between Earth's surface and its crushing depths, researchers say.  "Nearly all tectonic plates that make up the seafloor eventually bend and slide down into the mantle – a process called subduction, which has the potential to recycle surface materials, such as water, into the Earth," explained geologist Peng Ni of the Carnegie Institution for Science.Diamonds are prized for their beauty when shaped into faceted gems, but the little ...
