The Earth has been continuously surprising scientists about new discoveries that help humans get to know their home planet. One of the latest mysteries that have been discovered is the "hidden river" of molten iron found to be running through northern countries such as Alaska, Canada, and Russia. How come it has only been discovered now?
Snow falls on the hottest region on Earth for the second time in living memory. Although the Sahara Desert has been recorded to be more moist than it currently is, this is still the first time in the last three decades that snow has been seen falling in the region.
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has successfully launched a new satellite that will study the Earth's inner magnetosphere by passing through the Van Allen radiation belts.
Scientists from the University of Leeds and Technical University of Denmark discovered what appears to be jet stream moving at more than 40 kilometers per year within the Earth's molten core under 3,000 kilometers of rock.
While burst of solar flares are constantly hitting Proxima B, Dimitra Atri also said that it could still host life if it has an atmosphere similar to Earth.
Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have identified another way to help reduce rising global temperatures, by injecting light-reflecting particles in a process called solar geoengineering.
Limiting the effects of global warming has taken a toll on a number of industries around the world. It remains one of the challenges the world is facing today. So some scientists have a risky plan: geoengineering.
Scientists at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and three of its partner universities have made amazing discoveries that will help better understand the nature and behavior of heat and energy in the ionosphere.
NASA says a comet strike on Earth could be more catastrophic and damaging than an asteroid strike.
Food, especially food shortages, remains a controversial topic in a lot of economic forums. But it appears one of the most important aspects of human ecology is about to take a technological revolution.
An international team of scientists is trying to take a peak on what will happen to Earth five billion years from now by looking at a 10-billion-year old star with the help of one of the most powerful radio telescopes in the world.
A recent study suggests that nitrogen in billion-year-old rocks could potentially become bio-signature of life on Mars.
Ancient tables reveal that the Earth's spin becomes slower by 1.8 milliseconds every year, a finding that would show that the spin became slower by 2.3 milliseconds based on the numbers calculated by modern scientists. It has been found that the time it takes for the Earth to rotate about its axis takes more than a millisecond longer every year. It has also been found that this is attributed to the friction created by tides.
Are you always running out of time? Celestial records that expanded over the last 3,000 years show that Earth's spin is slowing down, making our days on the planet 7 days longer over the past two and a half millennium.
