Weather forecasts may soon come to Mars, at least for the snowstorms that occasionally whip over the northern hemisphere of our neighbor planet during the icy cold winters and could be predicted several weeks in advance, say researchers from the Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan, and the Max Planck...
Researchers have discovered that fossil remains hold clues to exploding stars in the form of the remains of iron-loving bacteria. The findings are the first to show that there can be biological evidence of a supernova.
You may be in for a spectacular solar display this week. The moon will block out the sun on Thursday and Friday during a solar eclipse, transforming our nearest star into a "ring of fire" in the daytime sky.
