Mars will soon begin its retrograde motion on Saturday, April 16. During its retrograde motion, It will seem like Mars is going on reverse.
Climate change has long been considered a threat to human beings, but a new study showed that climate change also affects how the Earth tilts its axis in an interesting and harmless way.
A new planet has been discovered in an open star cluster that is relatively near to Earth. A University of Texas astronomer reported the finding in a recent journal publication.
Recently analyzed lava samples suggest water was present when the planets were just beginning to form.
Diamonds may form under a much simpler process involving natural pH changes, making them less rare than we once thought.
Mineral clues hidden within ancient molten rocks suggest life on the planet arose 300 million years ahead of previous estimates. This changes the way scientists view the Earth following its formation 4.5 billion years ago.
After examining the geophysical and geochemical characteristics of Earth's core and mantle, researchers now believe there are higher oxygen concentrations than previously thought. This sheds light on Earth's formation 4.56 billion years ago.
Titan, which is rife with liquid methane seas and has a north pole that is wet with methane that survives in its very cold temperatures, might be better understood following recent UCLA findings.
Scientists discovered the world's longest known chain of continental volcanoes. It spans 2,000 kilometers across Australia, from Whitsundays in North Queensland to Melbourne in central Victoria.
After examining potentially habitable climates of three exoplanets, two seem to use an air-condition-like system that prevents the planet from getting too hot, according to KU Leuven researchers.
University of Gothenburg researchers recently found a double crater in Sweden that suggests a unique twin meteorite event occurred 458 million years ago. This is the first proven occurrence of such an event.
Scientists have discovered a thin layer of oxygen created by photosynthetic bacteria at the bottom of a Antarctic lake. This could better explain what was happening on Earth billions of years ago.
Recent studies found that magnesium peroxide may be abundant in extremely oxidized mantles and cores of rocky planets outside our solar system.
A team of researchers recently mapped tree populations, finding that about 3.04 trillion trees live on our planet.
