Scientists have taken a look at tiny fossil mammals and have found that during the Jurassic, the animals developed new characteristics, such as teeth capable of precise chewing.
Scientists have discovered that one-half mile before the surface of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is a lake that hasn't seen sunlight for millions of years--and it has a thriving ecosystem.
Scientists have examined Earth's atmosphere and have found an unexpectedly large amount of an ozone-depleting compound from an unknown source even though it's been decades since the compound has been banned worldwide.
Researchers have confirmed an array of microorganisms living in a sub-glacial lake in Antarctica that also includes an extensive family of rock-eating bacteria.
Could you imagine a row of solar panels that also function as windows? Scientists may just have developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while still allowing people to see outside.
It turns out that the ice sheets are in record decline, according to some new maps of the ice in Greenland and Antarctica.
It turns out that sunscreen could be hurting our environment. Scientists have found that when certain sunblock ingredients wash off our skin and into the sea, they can become toxic to some of the ocean's tiniest denizens.
Be careful what seafood you eat. It turns out that mislabeling may be exposing consumers to unexpectedly high levels of mercury in fish.
The average temperature of Earth has barely risen over the past 16 years. So if global warming is still occurring, why does it seem like it's taking a break? Scientists may have the answer and have also announced that warming will continue again soon.
What movements do worms use when it comes to inching through the Earth? That's a question that scientists have now answered with the help of a mathematical model which challenges the tradition view of how these creatures get around.
Scientists may have just managed to re-activate the expression of an ancient gene that causes animals to develop a fish-like thymus. The findings reveal a bit more about how the immune system evolved over the course of evolution.
