What caused Earth to develop life and not Venus? Scientists have taken a closer look to find out why Earth managed to sustain life while Mars and Venus did not.
Could solar effects trigger birth defects on Earth? Scientists have taken a closer look at radiation from cosmic rays to see whether or not it could impact unborn children.
Astronomers may have discovered a Jupiter-like planet orbiting a sun-like star that could, potentially, signal other systems like our own solar system.
We may be in for a mini ice age. Scientists have taken a closer look at the sun's solar cycle and have found that solar activity may fall by 60 percent in the 2030s.
NASA's black hole telescope has captured an amazing picture of our sun.
New findings published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology investigate the use of insecticides--specifically neonicotinoids--and their effects on the decline of the honey bee population.
Researchers may have found a way to predict space weather up to five days in advance. Scientists have proposed an operational mission called Carrington-L5 to give that five-day warning.
Old stars may have Earth-like planets. A new study of 33 Kepler stars with solar-like oscillations have shown the ages of sun-like stars with Earth-like planets.
On Monday, the sun unleashed a mid-level solar flare, which peaked at around 2:23 EDT. Yet this flare has had further repercussions. It's helped launch a massive geomagnetic storm on Earth.
You might be surprised to learn that the sun's atmosphere is actually hotter than its surface. Now, scientists may have found out why this is.
Scientists may have created a new way to predict solar storms more than 24 hours in advance. They've developed a new way to track large magnetic storms that could influence Earth's communications.
Sun-like "superflare" stars were first seen with the Kepler Space Telescope. Now, astronomers have taken a closer look at these stars and have discovered that stars with large starspots can, indeed, experience superflares.
