Researchers from the University of Arizona confirmed that there are another haul of exoplanets, a total of 104, discovered by NASA's K2 planet-hunting mission.
New clues emerge in the hunt for a ninth planet. Scientists from the University of Arizona say that synced orbital periods of six minor planets could be explained by the presence of the so-called "Planet Nine."
For years, desert tortoise populations in Mexico remained grouped under two species. However, a new study has identified a third individual among the bunch.
Fossils excavated from the fossil-rich Bighorn Basin in Wyoming shed new light on the different physical and behavioral traits of early carnivorous mammals known as hyaenodontids.
Recently unearthed arthropod fossils were found to contain traces of brain fragments. Contrary to common scientific belief, the finding proves brains can withstand fossilization.
