As the Earth spins on its axis, scientists observe a noticeable wobble on its motion. It's a phenomenon that has existed for centuries and now we've finally figured out why.
In the age of the flat Earth movement and the deniers of climate change and vaccinations, it may be baffling to some people how others ignore scientific data for their own false beliefs. Now, psychologists seek to explain the behavior.
Earth is a tiny planet in the vast universe where powerful objects are in constant movement and collision. Here’s another way the planet could meet its end in the wake of inescapable forces.
Scientists try to piece together the early history of life by backtracking to the 'last universal common ancestor.' By combining genetic data and fossils, they uncover new details about the microbe that's the source of all life on Earth.
Astronomers say that there are multiple mini-moons that orbit Earth. Mini-moons are asteroids that are temporary fixtures near Earth, getting caught in the planet's gravitational pull before its eventual escape.
The planet is getting pushed to its tipping point on the way to a 'Hothouse Earth' state. In these conditions, temperatures and sea levels could reach unbearable heights.
Scientists found gigantic cracks on the mantle under the Tibetan Plateau. The unprecedented glimpse of the sub-surface region explains the strange regions that earthquakes have been hitting in Tibet.
Who knew the first ever color produced by living things on Earth is a bright shade of pink? Scientists find 1.1-billion-year-old rocks with fossils of the earliest pigments in geological history.
Humans are causing Earth's temperature rising dangerously high in present time. Half a billion years ago, it was the evolution of early animals that sparked the planet's first global warming event.
Mars will be incredibly bright in July and August, venturing closer to Earth than it has been in 15 years. The Red Planet will be visible to sky watchers around the world even to the naked eye.
The days are getting longer and longer — and it's all thanks to the moon. A new study reveals Earth days started out just 18 hours long before lunar influence came into play.
Earth has more in common with gigantic neighbor Jupiter than you think. For one, their lightning strikes are amazingly similar that even scientists were surprised.
Flat Earthers converge at the Flat Earth Convention, exchanging far-fetched explanations on the shape of the planet. One theory suggests the Earth acts like the game 'Pac-Man,' transporting people from one end of the planet to another.
With so much asteroids speeding through space, is a crash imminent?
