A freak lightning storm that struck Los Angeles on Sunday took beachgoers by surprise, resulting in one fatality and eight injuries, according to local reports.
A new study suggests that rise in global temperatures along with increase in levels of ozone pollution in the environment can reduce crop yields.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to design a pure lithium anode. The research is expected to make batteries smaller and more efficient.
Dinosaurs went extinct due to a perfect storm of events, researchers say.
It's not exactly Jurassic Park's perfectly preserved mosquito in amber, but it's still an incredible find. Researcher have uncovered fossils of blood-suckers dating back to an estimated 130 million years ago, making them the oldest fossils of blood-feeding insects ever found.
For the first time, researchers have realized that when the bacteria Escherichia coli interacts with salt, it manipulates the mineral to build shelters and hibernate.
Archaeologists have found thousands of Stone Age artifacts at an ancient site in Northern Cape Province of South Africa.
Fossils of feathered dinosaurs are no longer as terribly rare as they once were, even if they still are exciting finds. However, so far all feathered dinosaurs have been the flesh-eating two-legged raptors theorized to be the ancestors of modern birds. Now paleontologists have found evidence that some large plant eating dinos also sported bristly feathers, changing the rules for predicting who likely had plumage.
What's worse than one Tyrannosaurus rex? Three. Newly discovered T. Rex tracks show that three of these ancient predators stalked together across a mud flat in ancient Canada supposedly in search of prey, backing the theory that they hunted in packs, according to a new study.
Paleontologists are gearing up for the reopening of one of North America's most remarkable troves of late Pleistocene fossils, a cave that hasn't been visited in 30 years.
Experts have found evidence of ancient pools of water untouched since Earth's earliest years. These primordial oases could provide researchers clues about our planet's earliest forms of life, serving as windows for peering into the dawn of creation.
As moose feed, their slobber may weaken the toxic defenses of certain grasses, displaying the power of drool, according to a report in the journal Biology Letters.
The Oso landslide disaster in March 2014 involved the "remobilization" of a 2006 landslide on the same hillside, a new geological study released Tuesday concluded.
Researchers have found a way to enhance light signals collected from distant sources by using an "air waveguide."
