In a recent study, researchers attempted to grow crops on Martian soil like Mark Watney did in "The Martian." Since its release, "The Martian" has had a major influence on potential farming on the Red Planet, causing these researchers to implement their own Martian farming techniques.
Researchers have identifies a disease carrying species of mosquitoes, which is potentially dangerous to human health. The invasive species has been identified as 'Aedes japonicas.' This species of mosquito is a carrier for multiple viruses, according to researchers from Simon Fraser University and ...
Scientists have recovered 520-million-year-old brain fossils, which is shedding light on the fossilization of the brain, which was considered to be impossible for many years by scientists.
How did an abrupt climate shift impact Earth? New research has taken a closer look as to how climatic changes in the North Atlantic propagated globally.
Greenhouse gas emissions have hit yet another record, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
Researchers examined a 320-million-year-old animal's gut, and after carrying out an X-ray, they found new information on the digestive system. The fossil is a distant relative of modern starfish and sea urchins, according to the researchers.
Scientists are getting a more in depth look at climate change in Europe. A new drought atlas maps more than 2,000 years of climate history.
It turns out that human activities, such as greenhouse gas emissions and land use, were the main cause of extreme weather and climate events in 2014.
The shape of a bird's wing depends largely on its ancestors. Scientists have found that the shape of bird wings is influenced more by how closely related species are to one another than by flight style
Monkeys in Asia may actually have a virus from humans. Scientists have found that macaques harbor more diverse astroviruses, which can cause infectious gastroenteritis, or diarrhea, in humans.
Cougars may actually recolonize the middle part of the United States within the next 25 years.
In a recent study, researchers found that marine invasive species such as jellyfish and algae are benefiting from rising carbon dioxide levels in the ocean. These invasive species are inhabiting new areas of the planet, where they are destroying ecosystems.
