The solar corona is as hot as 1-3 million degrees, while the surface is a mere 6000°C.
Data from the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center revealed that the Arctic sea ice is at the second lowest minimum ever recorded.
Researchers develop a new lightweight design of wearable thermoelectronic generators capable of converting body heat to electricity.
Last weekend, New York City experienced 95F degrees temperature that melts the city. Residents turn to their air conditioners to battle the heat.
As the intense heat and humidity in New York City worsens this week, cockroaches are planning an invasion, all thanks to a massive heat wave and climate change.
With climate change most associated with warming temperatures, scientists and the public alike tend to focus on the dangers of extreme weather such as heat waves, which is increasingly becoming the new norm. However, new research reveals that simple cold weather is more deadly than extremely hot days.
Exposure to extreme heat could increase four- to six-fold by 2050, due to both a warming climate and a population that's growing especially fast in the hottest regions of the country, according to new research.
Well, not exactly. But new research finds that how you feel pain is affected by where sources of pain are in relation to each other, and so crossing your fingers can change what you feel on a single finger.
New research has found that magnets can manipulate heat and sound, a discovery that can potentially lead to practical applications in the future.
California is in the midst of the worst drought the region's seen in a millennium, which is rapidly depleting its water supply, and now a NASA scientist warns that the state has only one year of water left.
It is well known that Saturn's moon Enceladus harbors a subsurface ocean, but what scientists have just discovered are signs of current hydrothermal activity that may be warming up its seas enough for life to survive.
Looks like camels are not the only animals that can save the water they drink throughout the day. New research has found that sheep, who understandably become overheated under their thick sweaters of wool, can save the water they would otherwise sweat out by literally cooling their brains.
A team of scientists has discovered cosmic discs of dust and gas at the center of the Milky Way galaxy that can quite literally stand the heat - that is, heat emanating from millions of large, hot stars that should otherwise destroy such discs.
In the fight against climate change, most experts focus on controlling emissions of carbon dioxide, but methane is actually the more potent greenhouse gas, even more effective at trapping heat in Earth's atmosphere. Now, thanks to a new device, scientists are sniffing out the origins of harmful methane, helping them to better understand its role in warming the planet.
