New research is suggesting that a certain frequency of sunlight along can convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. However there are many limitations to this process, making it rather useless to Earth. Still, the discovery offers some promising ideas for researchers investigating planet formation and alien worlds.
The Sun's outer atmosphere is hotter than its surface, and scientists have just pinned nanoflares as the reason behind this mysterious extra heat, according to a new study.
While Saturn's largest moon likely formed after the ringed planet, the materials that Titan is made of appear to date back long before Saturn existed.
In an effort to better understand the chemical composition of the atmospheres of other worlds, NASA scientists have combined just the right "aromatic flavors" to recreate the pungent air of Saturn's largest moon, Titan.
A NASA spacecraft recently spotted a square-shaped "hole" formed by solar wind on the surface of the Sun.
NASA scientists have successfully replicated, here on Earth, the processes that form interstellar dust in the atmosphere of a red giant star.
Incoming asteroids slam into the Earth's atmosphere surprisingly often, some of them as powerful as nuclear bombs, a new time-lapse video illustrates.
