It seems obvious, that the great, vast Universe is 3-D, but now scientists are challenging this assumption, claiming that the Universe is really just a hologram, according to a new study.
Do you think you know your geography? Well, astronaut Scott Kelly, who is spending an entire year aboard the International Space Station (ISS), is looking to test your meddle.
For a long time now, on-the-go readers and workers have had one common enemy: sunlight. Trying to read a good book or even just your emails in the glare of the Sun has been a massive source of frustration for tablet and e-reader owners. Now however, experts are looking to a unique species of butterfly to make reflective screens a thing of the past.
Galaxies are often found in clusters, which contain what are called "red and dead" members that stopped forming stars in the distant past. Now new research has discovered that giant cosmic tsunamis can bring these dead galaxies back to life.
If you've ever seen the movie "Get Him to the Greek," featuring comedians Russell Brand and Jonah Hill, you probably now understand that threesomes can be weird. They can even be downright scary! That's why it came as no surprise when astronomers determined that when galaxies have a threesome, entire systems might run for it.
Happy 25th anniversary Hubble! As of April 24, it has been a whopping quarter of a century since the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) rocketed out of Earth's atmosphere to begin its mission of surveying the stars. Since then, it's had a hand in... well, just about any space research you can think of. Now, on the advent of this landmark anniversary, we take a look at what the Hubble has accomplished, and what the future has in store for it.
Scientists have discovered that "monster stars" lit up the early Universe, shining as bright as 100 million Suns, according to a new study.
Experts have some new plans for the International Space Station (ISS), and they have absolutely nothing to do with space, exploration, or even astronauts. A new investigation will be using the uniquely high vantage point of the orbital space station to help track animals in trouble - the results of which could improve conservation strategies around the world.
Scientists have discovered what may be the largest structure in the entire Universe, according to a new study.
Intense magnetism has been discovered near a supermassive black hole, and scientists hope it can help them better understand these massive inhabitants of the centers of galaxies.
On March 18, 2011, NASA's MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry, and Ranging (MESSENGER) spacecraft finally inserted itself into orbit around Mercury after six and a half years of traveling across our solar system. Now the 11-year-old spacecraft is finally retiring, with plans to end its career by leaving its mark on the planet it observed for so long.
The first color snapshot ever taken of Pluto (below) has just come in from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft - a historic milestone for the probe as it continues to move in on the dwarf planet. This unique imagery also offers new insight on distant Pluto and its largest moon, Charon.
Scientists have discovered a gas planet located deep within our galaxy - about 13,000 light-years away - making it one of the most distant planets known, according to new research.
It has always been a great mystery whether or not we are alone in the Universe, so scientists have stepped up their efforts and searched 100,000 galaxies for signs of alien life, and they found... nothing.
Titan is one heck of a mysterious world. As the largest moon orbiting Saturn, this heavenly body plays host to a murky, dense atmosphere and vast seas of methane. These seas even contain "disappearing islands" - strange floating objects that appear and disappear randomly. Another mystery was the origin of its dunes - towering formations that the gentle wind of Titan could not have possibly created. Now, researchers have finally identified the true dune creator.
