Where is most of Earth's carbon located? It turns out that the majority of it can be found within our planet's inner core. This makes the core into the largest carbon reservoir on our planet, according to the new model created by scientists.
An invisible, science fiction-like shield has been discovered about 7,200 miles above Earth's surface.
Carbon deep beneath Earth's surface may have influenced the history of life on our world. Scientists have taken a closer look at this carbon and have learned a bit more about the vital role that this element played in the planet's formation.
It turns out that turbulence may be responsible for strengthening our planet's magnetic field.
Scientists have now found evidence that our Earth's oceans were created not when asteroids slammed into the planet, but far earlier.
Astronomers are peering further and further afield, thanks in part to NASA's Kepler spacecraft. Now, scientists are using Hubble in order to study the exoplanets that Kepler identified, which could eventually lead to the discovery of life on other planets.
Early Earth was a hellish place to be, according to conventional theories. Now, new evidence in the form of zircon crystals have hinted otherwise, showing that Earth had conditions that were more similar to those found today.
Scientists have officially identified and characterized what they're now calling the "Venus Zone," the area around a star in which a planet is likely to have similar unlivable conditions that can be found on the planet Venus.
Plumes from Earth's mantle may just break up entire continents. Scientists have taken a closer look at the material rising up from the boundary layer of Earth's core and have found that they can help shape our planet's surface.
Scientists have found that giant asteroid impacts may have played a huge role in the geological evolution of Earth.
NASA scientists have found out that friction may play a larger role than expected; it could be key to survival for distant Earth-sized planets traveling in dangerous orbits.
