A team of scientists has identified the first-ever evidence of a comet colliding with planet Earth about 56 millions of years ago, suggesting that the catastrophic event could have lead to an abrupt warming period or Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) on Earth.
A mystery space plane has been orbiting earth for 500 days and up to now, nobody knows what exactly is it doing up there.
A group of scientists are preparing for the launch of first SPACE NATION named "Asgardia" that will soon be flying in a low-orbit satellite on Earth next year.
Japan's space agency released to the public all the stunning images and videos of the Earth and the moon captured by the Kaguya spacecraft from 2007 to 2009.
Unlike today, ancient Earth needed more heat because the Sun was 10 to 15 percent dimmer than what it's today. Researchers have refuted a long-held theory that the Earth, billions of years in the past, stayed warm with the help of methane.
Researchers at the CNRS research institute in France have discovered that Proxima b, the nearest Earth-like exoplanet, could have a surface covered with oceans. With this astounding discovery, the question lies -- could life outside Earth possible?
A team of scientist has discovered an unexpected behavior in the atmosphere that disrupts one of the Earth’s most regular climate cycles.
A team of international scientists has discovered a new way to produce images of Earth’s interior. The new method could provide a new understanding of the Earth’s crust and help in studying interiors of other celestial bodies.
A new study from The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has offered a surprising twist of how life began on earth, questioning the likeability of the "RNA World" Hypothesis and proposing that DNA may have also existed when life began.
A solar storm is predicted to hit earth anytime between today and Friday. The said solar storm may greatly affect earth’s technology, particularly the satellites in orbit. Once hit by a solar storm, this could lead to lack of GPS navigation, satellite TV, and mobile phone signals.
A new study suggests that the moon was once part of the Earth and that it tore apart from the planet during an interplanetary collision 4.5. billion years ago.
Carbon dioxide produced by burning fossil fuel is most likely the cause of the decline of oxygen concentration in the atmosphere.
When the sun was dimmer, the Earth did not freeze up, and scientists had earlier believed it was because of methane. Now, a new study shatters this long-held assumption.
A climate study caused the web to go into chaos. It concluded that due to the amount of human carbon emissions in the atmosphere, the planet has reached 3 to 7 degrees Celsius of global warming. However, a new study claims contradicts this report.
Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson showed that he is willing to think out of the box – or out of the world – to get through the environmental problems plaguing the planet. In an interview with ABC’s “This Week”, he explained how he thinks the future of the human race is in another planet.
