NASA's Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission has revealed new insight into how the face of the moon received its rugged looks. It's found out a little bit more about the asymmetric distribution of lunar impact basins, which reveals a bit more about the history of the moon.
Giant black holes pepper our universe, tucked inside galaxies as they pair up and merge with other black holes. These massive bodies dance around each other in close embraces, sending out gravitational waves that ripple space and time themselves. Now, scientists have reached a milestone by discoveri...
Earth apparently has no special place in the universe--at least not when it comes to the cosmic growth of the system. Scientists have ruled out a controversial theory that the accelerating expansion of the universe is an illusion.
NASA's Hubble Space telescope spots never- before-seen mysterious object in the asteroid belt of our solar system. It captured an unusual looking asteroid radiating six come-like tails similar to a rotating lawn sprinkler.
A fireball streaked through the California Sky that split into several fragments while moving. The blazing fireball put up a spectacular air show right from Santa Barbara to San Diego.

Scientists have discovered a new rare microbe on Earth that not only survives on very little to eat, but may also hitch a ride into space. Now, they're looking at this microbe a bit more closely after finding it in two spacecraft clean rooms in Florida and South America.
A team of NASA and international scientists have obtained an insight into the effects on Earth from a small asteroid impact. This has revolutionized the understanding of the scientists on meteoroid impact.
Black holes are usually formed during the deaths of stars and can come in various sizes--from the regular to the supermassive. Now, scientists have discovered how supermassive black holes may have formed in the early universe, revealing that one collapsed star may spawn two black holes that could po...
The Russian fireball that streaked over the skies of Chelyabinsk in February before exploding has now told scientists a little bit more about the likelihood of a similar event. It turns out that the Chelyabinsk incident is far more likely to occur again, which means that we may be seeing another met...
