Khloe Kardashian has filed for divorce from her estranged husband Lamar Odom for the second time

Khloe Kardashian has filed for divorce from her estranged husband Lamar Odom for the second time, having called a halt to proceedings last year after his near-fatal overdose. 

According to court documents obtained by an entertainment magazine, the reality TV star cited irreconcilable differences in their relationship when she filed on Thursday (May 26th). 

31-year-old Khloe married Odom, an NBA star, in 2009 and were together for four years until she filed for divorce the first time in December 2013, after he relapsed with substance abuse problems he had been struggling with previously and then cheated on her. 

Proceedings were protracted and then eventually called off nearly two years later, when 36-year-old Odom nearly died after collapsing from an overdose in a legal brothel in Nevada in October 2015. 

“This was always the plan. The divorce has never been officially off. Khloé was waiting for the timing to be right,” a source told the magazine on Thursday. Finally, the inside source says that Odom has taken the development well. “He wasn’t blindsided. He knew it was coming. It was amicable.”

Mars is emerging from an ice age

Using radar data collected by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, a Southwest Research Institute-led team found evidence of an ice age recorded in the polar deposits of Mars.

Ice ages on Mars are driven by processes similar to those responsible for ice ages on Earth, that is, long-term cyclical changes in the planet’s orbit and tilt, which affect the amount of solar radiation it receives at each latitude. 

“We found an accelerated accumulation rate of ice in the uppermost 100 to 300 meters of the polar cap,” said Dr Isaac Smith, a postdoctoral researcher at SwRI and lead author of a paper published in the May 27 issue of Science.
