The new discovery explains how the reactive 'phosphorous' an essential component for creating life form came to Earth from asteroids some 3.5 billion years ago and they helped in creating the earliest form of life.
It's a chemist's dream come true. Researchers have snapped an atomic-scale picture of a chemical before and after it reacts. The new images hold enormous potential for future study into how chemicals react with one another.
Hydrogen may be the future of clean energy. Engineers at Duke University have developed a novel method for creating clean hydrogen, which could prove essential to weaning society off of fossil fuels.
A U.K.-Canadian team of scientists has discovered billion-year-old water deep underground from a mine that is 2.4 kilometers beneath Ontario. This water could be the oldest on the planet, and leads to the possibility of similar life being discovered on Mars.
It looks like Connecticut towns are a new target for space rocks, with a second meteorite hitting a Connecticut house in less than a month last Wednesday, in the city of Waterbury. The place is just two miles away from Walcott, where the April collision took place.
A graduate student from West Virginia University has revealed a previously unrecognized huddle of gas clouds between Andromeda and Triangulum galaxies, neighbors of our Milky Way.
With the help of far-infrared imaging, ESA's Herschel observatory has seen in detail how the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy snacks on a cloud of hot gas that is orbiting or falling into it.
Buried 2.5 kilometers below the surface, a new dark matter detector in Canada has begun its search for the elusive dark matter, which scientists believe accounts for nearly 90 per cent of all matter in the universe.
According to the astronomers, the galaxy converts fuel into stars with almost 100 percent efficiency. Located some 6 billion light years from Earth, this may be the most environmentally-friendly galaxy ever spotted.
