Researchers can now conduct experiments that tell us about the geology and hydrology of a hidden subglacial world, and maybe even find a unique species or two along the way.
The Indonesian volcano which caused a tsunami that killed more than 400 people last week lost more than two-thirds of its height following the eruption which triggered the killer waves.
A new calculation shows that the tree-fall pattern in Siberia is consistent with an asteroid coming from the same area in the sky as the Taurid meteor swarm.
Mile-long rock shaped like water-loving pachyderm is rotating lazily through space under close watch by scientists who feared it could be on a collision course.
Researchers say this close relationship between trees and their natural enemies is the key to tropical forest diversity.
The space rock, estimated to be about a mile wide, will pass by our planet at a distance of approximately 7.34 lunar distances, what corresponds to 1.75 million miles.
An Astrobiology study proposes that an ancient supernova could have exposed Megalodon and other large ocean animals to deadly muon radiation.
While humans aren’t warming the Earth anywhere close to as much as what happened naturally 250 million years ago, “this puts our future into the category of contenders for true catastrophe.”
The research suggests that dark matter and energy can both be explained if they’re treated as a “negative mass fluid.”
America’s National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has posted a new video illustrating what could happen if an asteroid crashed into one of our oceans, and it’s fascinating.
According to a NASA report, the asteroid has the potential of colliding with earth on 62 different impact trajectories, from between 2023 and 2117.
If it is really true that the Greenland crater was created 12,000 years ago or more, it could explain a mysterious feature called the Younger Dryas event.
Residue found in a jug in Israel shows vanilla was likely produced and traded from South Asia, millennia before it was cultivated in Mexico.
A superheated blast from the skies obliterated cities and farming settlements north of the Dead Sea around 3,700 years ago, preliminary findings suggest.
