NASA satellites detected a powerful gamma ray burst from a dying star in a distant galaxy on April. 27, which scientists say is the brightest burst ever recorded.
There's some volcanic activity occurring in one of the most hostile and coldest environments on Earth. Scientists have observed "swarms" of seismic activity between January 2010 and March 2011, revealing that there's current volcanic activity under the massive West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
NASA's unmanned robotic explorer LADEE that made its successful entry into the lunar orbit in the month of October is now all set to accumulate scientific data about the moon.
New research shows that many Darwin's frogs are dying due to a widespread fungus, known as Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, or chytrid fungus, that's devastated many amphibian.
Dating glaciers and their moraines is crucial for understanding climate change. Now, scientists have discovered a more accurate method to determine the ages of the boulders deposited by tropical glaciers. The findings could influence previous research of how climate change has impacted ice masses ar...
House sparrows are some of the most successful invasive species in the world. Originally heralding from Europe, they've spread throughout the United States. Now, scientists have discovered that something in a sparrow's biology may help with this proliferation. It turns out that adjustments in the sp...
NASA's Chandra Observatory has finally confirmed the evidence of jet in the Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*)- a supermassive black located 26,000 light years away from the Earth in the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.
Since the October of this year there has been a lot of activity on the Sun with 24 medium class solar flares and four X class solar flares. Looks like the sun's activity is ramping up some more as on Tuesday the sun emitted another significant solar flare.
A team of U.S. engineers have created the most water resistant material in which the droplets knocked down the theoretical time barrier on bouncing. This latest find can be used in several application ranging from aircraft wings to waterproof clothing.
A 10-year study has revealed that the rate of abnormalities in frogs, such as shortened or missing legs, was less than 2 percent overall. This indicates that the malformations that were first reported in the mid-1990s are a lot less common than originally feared.
Based on the examination of the arm bone of a 24,000-year-old Siberian youth, scientists believe that new origin's for America's indigenous peoples may carry a west Eurasian background that's linked to the Middle East and Europe, rather than entirely from East Asians as previously thought.
A team of study researchers have discovered that the ancient 24,000 year Siberian individual have a few genomic signature of the present day western Eurasians but are more close to the modern Native Americans.
