A new dwarf planet has been discovered out in the far reaches of the solar system, past Neptune and Pluto. The discovery has been designated "2015 RR245" by the International Astronomical Union.
It took the researchers a decade before finally identifying the 50-million-year-old species.
Scientists have discovered carcinogenic man-made pollutants in marine organisms living up to 10,000 metres deep on the world's deepest ocean trenches.
An underwater sinkhole in Aucilla River near Tallahassee revealed stone tools and mastodon bones that prove the existence of humans in the American Southeast by around 14,000 years ago. How they came to Florida, however, is still a mystery to the scientists.
A possible Vikings site has been recently discovered on the island of Newfoundland, with the site dating back to nearly a thousand years, and could alter history as we know it.
A newly discovered fossilized skull of a so-called "Siberian unicorn" has revealed that it has survived over 300,000 more years than what the scientists originally thought.
For the first time in 28 years, Alaska has a new butterfly: a possible hybrid between two related species that adapted to the harsh Arctic climate.
A newly launched search in Mexico's Sea of Cortez has reportedly found several vaquita marina porpoises, one of the most critically endangered animals in the world. This reassures conservationists that the vaquita isn't extinct yet. However, that doesn't mean the tiny animals are in good shape.
Every year more than 100 million blood donations are collected globally, and according to the World Health Organization, that's not nearly enough. Synthetic blood would be one ideal solution, but it has long been nothing more than a pipe dream. Now, thanks to new research on deep-diving whales, researchers suddenly think they've figured out the secret to making this medical miracle a reality.
Bees are still in trouble, with worrying declines and even outright extinctions occurring within the last decade. However, it turns out that scientists might be tracking only a portion of the pollinator population, with some species still undiscovered. In Australia, specialists are helping to reconcile this, discovering four new bee species in one grand project.
Archaeologists from Jamestown Rediscovery recently identified four graves based on silver thread remains found beneath a church built in 1608. This was the same church where Pocahontas married John Rolfe in 1614.
Norovirus is an infamous illness. Ruining cruises and restaurant outings alike, norovirus infections are responsible for more than 20 percent of all reported "food poisoning" cases worldwide. Now, new research has determined that raw oysters not only transmit the virus, but also harbor it.
Allonautilus scrobiculatus, a nautilus found the waters of the South Pacific, is so rare that researchers only know of three people in history that have ever seen it in person. Now, three decades after the last encounter, this incredible living fossil has decided to pay one lucky researcher a second visit.
