When a meteor slams into a planet, it causes all sorts of damage. But what occurs underground? Scientists have created new techniques to simulate high-speed missile and meteor impacts into soil and sand.
The universe is accelerating. Now, though, astronomers have discovered that it may not be accelerating nearly as fast as once thought.
Astronomers have taken a closer look at one of the most powerful explosions in the universe: gamma-ray bursts.
Astronomers have discovered an exoplanet with a truly terrifying atmosphere.
Earth's sun apparently came late to the Milky Way galaxy.
For the first time ever, astronomers have spotted the moment in which a massive protostar begins to develop jets of matter and energy crucial for star formation.
For the first time ever, astronomers have detected the presence of complex organic molecules, the building blocks of life, in a protoplanetary disc surrounding a young star.
Scientists are taking a closer look at the violent formation of Earth's moon.
Mars has polar ice caps, but it also has belts of glaciers at its central latitudes at both its northern and southern hemispheres. Now, scientists have calculated the size of these glaciers.
Astronomers may have determined the orbit of Annama, a meteorite that was characterized from a fireball that occurred April 19 2014. The new findings reveal a bit more about meteorites in general.
It turns out that the sun undergoes a type of seasonal variability with its activity waxing and waning over the course of nearly two years. The findings reveal a bit more about the 11-year cycle of the sun.
