New calculations suggests that Earth's center is 2.5 years younger than its surface, significantly younger that previously claimed age difference of a day or two.
An ancient giant asteroid was reportedly found in Australia.
Titan and Europa both have Earth-like properties which is why scientists are closely monitoring the moons to know whether life forms exist on these celetial bodies.
A new study suggests that the the ancient atmosphere of Earth was only half as thick as it is today, reversing the commonly accepted idea that the early Earth had a thicker atmosphere to compensate for weaker sunlight during that time.
