A section of metal debris was recently found near the United Kingdom's southwestern coast, and it bears what looks like an American flag. It was covered with barnacles.
After Mars' larger moon Phobos is shattered by gravity, Mars will likely have an all-new appearance.
In New York's 526-acre Prospect Park, red-tailed hawks recently attacked a drone.
A recent study induced flatworms to grow the heads and brains of other species, by changing the cell communication and not by altering the genomic sequence. This, they say, could lead to birth-defect findings and other learnings.
Wood pellets have become an increasingly popular alternative source of fuel, and are even more environmentally friendly compared to coal, when factoring harvesting and transportation.
Nature World News recently spoke with Mike Carmon, a meteorologist who studies the very extreme weather atop New Hampshire's Mt. Washington. Scientists in 1932 clocked winds there of 231 mph; researchers have had a wild-and-wooly view of weather there ever since then.
Using the natural movements observed in plants, researchers believe they can make tiny robots move with the use of electricity.
James Sullivan talks here about the Comet 67P and the gaseous oxygen (unusual) and other findings on it that have learnings for us regarding the beginning of life on our planet.
Chitons, a type of marine mollusk, have a multitude of eyes in their hard, horned shells. Basically, they're seeing as well as protecting themselves with a tough exterior. If they see predators, they can latch tight to the surface below them. Researchers think this could help in certain materials designs.
Astronomers recently discovered that one dim and cool dwarf star is not just being still out there in space -- it is heavily magnetic, just as much so as some parts of our Sun. If we were located next to this star, we'd have no satellite communications.
Hummingbirds are muscling through many of their aerial performances, says a new study.
At the first annual Space Commerce Conference and Exposition, the NASA Administrator talked about the stronger role private companies will have in allowing NASA to focus on certain goals, including humans going to Mars.
Vanderbilt researchers recently modified batteries by adding millions of quantum dots made from iron pyrite, or fool's gold. This not only allows the enhanced batteries to charge faster, but also endure more charge cycles.
If all goes well, after New Year's the researchers on the International Space Station may find themselves amid a lot of zinnias, the bright garden flower. These will provide learnings for growing blooming plants in space, and tomatoes might be next.
