No, I'm not talking about 200 years from present day. But new research has shown evidence of a 200-year lag between climate events in Greenland and Antarctica during the last ice age, and it could possibly help shed light on the consequences of climate change in the future.
It turns out hot spots in Earth's mantle are not to blame for some of Hawaii's known underwater volcanoes, but rather they formed from cracks or fractures in the oceanic crust, according to a new study.
If it weren't for the emergence of complex organic molecules some billions of years ago, humans as well as other organisms wouldn't exist today. Now new research claims that hot ocean vents found on the seafloor are the source of life on Earth as we know it.
For more than 250 million years, four-limbed land animals known as tetrapods have repeatedly conquered the Earth's oceans. Now new research is revealing just how these marine predators successfully evolved amidst this ever-changing environment.
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.
About 65 million years ago, an asteroid crash supposedly wiped out all the dinosaurs on Earth. Now, scientists may soon finally solve the mystery behind this dino-killing crash.
The Moon: it's a heavenly body of changing faces and meaning. It's commonly associated with horror, romance, and above all, mystery. And even answers concerning how it came to be have remained unknown... until now.
A shocking new study revealed that anesthetic gases, of all things, raise Earth's temperature - well, at least a little.
Thanks to the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope, astronomers were able to spot an "Einstein ring" in an ancient, far-away galaxy - and no, it's not the famed Ring of Sauron from The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
New research has found evidence of a positive feedback mechanism brought on by climate change in which global warming itself may intensify a rise in greenhouse gases, resulting in additional warming.
According to new research, drought damage will likely cause widespread forest death by the 2050s as a result of climate change.
The image of Luke Skywalker staring at the twin sunsets of his homeplanet Tatooine captured the imagination of millions of movie watchers everywhere. But now astrophysicists are saying that this desert planet may not be just a thing of science fiction, but a reality.
Like Miley Cyrus herself, millions of years ago a wandering Jupiter came in like a wrecking ball, destroying a first generation of inner planets and helping to create the unusual solar system we find ourselves in today.
Traveling into the deepest depths of the Earth has frequently been a premise for some of Hollywood's more ridiculous science-fiction movies. However, experts have long known that there is no place for humanity - or life as we know it - under the incredible heat and pressure's of our planet's core. Now, researchers are using some of the world's most powerful supercomputers to look where we physically cannot.
Spring officially started last Friday evening, even if a good majority of folks in the north were still seeing snow on the ground and ice on the roads. And while these last legs of chilly weather may seem to indicate that spring has been pushed back, the reality is that the season is actually shortening, with summer expected to come earlier than ever before this year.
