Scientists think they have finally figured out what has been causing the bizarre behaviour of KIC 8462852, also known as Tabby's star...and the explanation does not involve intelligent aliens.
A ghostly noise that was recorded near the Mariana Trench has finally been identified. According to the researchers at Oregon State University's Hatfield Marine Science Center, who documented the vocalization, the sound could have been a never before heard whale call from a minke whale.
The solar corona is as hot as 1-3 million degrees, while the surface is a mere 6000°C.
The "wild animal" is yet to be located and identified, but officials believe it might be rabid and a carrier of a disease.
It turns out that Jurassic hunters may have really been the terrifying sprinters that Hollywood has made them out to be. New research has revealed that careful body temperature regulation had many dinosaurs 'running hot,' but only on sunny days.
Thanks to the New Horizon spacecraft, humanity has been granted a close-and-personal peek at the rugged surface of Charon, Pluto's largest moon, for the first time in history. However, when getting to know an alien world, pictures aren't enough, right? Now NASA has upped the experience, providing an opportunity for the public to fly over the surface of the mysterious moon.
Around 73,000 years ago, the towering predecessor of the Fogo volcano - one of the most active in the world - collapsed. As a result, a unbelievably massive tsunami rippled across the Atlantic Ocean, washing its destructive force over islands that now boast over 250,000 human residents. Experts now wonder if such a disaster is more common than we'd like.
NASA recently released another dazzling and high-resolution photo from Pluto's breathtaking surface, revealing mysterious rippling landscapes that resemble the uniform scales of a snake. "Unique and perplexing," the New Horizon's team is calling it, admitting they have absolutely no clue what could shape these ridges.
If you were standing on the icy surface of Pluto, you'd probably find yourself breathless, and not because you forgot your space suit. NASA's recently released new photos from their intrepid New Horizons spacecraft, and they show that not only is Pluto breathtaking, but it also is a surprisingly active world.
If you're a zebra, we have some bad news for you. Stripes, as it turns out, do not confuse predators nearly as much as experts once thought. In fact, their true purpose is still anyone's guess.
A little more than a week after the intrepid New Horizons made its brief but historic rendezvous with our solar system's favorite dwarf planet, NASA is already revealing some stunning images and data from Pluto's surface. Now, NASA experts are saying that the protoplanet is more exciting and more mysterious than they ever expected.
It may sound utterly outrageous, but experts are now arguing that some very fat and blind cave fish may hold the key to understanding humanity's obesity problem. The same genes that apparently help these fish feast without constraint also happens to be one of the strongest genetic drivers for inherited obesity ever seen.
Believe it or not, there is no true species of 'black panther' stalking the dark jungles of the world. Often, they are unusual variants of cougars, jaguars, or even leopards. This certainly holds true for the Malaysian black panther - leopards with sleek black coats and, oddly enough, invisible black spots. Now researchers have determined how to make the unseen seen - a boon for conservation.
Recently, a photo of a playful dolphin riding the nose of a humpback whale has been circulating around popular social media. It's a stunning display of cross-species friendship, and certainly something to be celebrated. However, this isn't some new and strange behavior seen among a few extra-progressive dolphins. According to researchers, this kind of thing has been happening for a long time.
The intrepid spacecraft New Horizons is a mere one-million miles away from Pluto, and as it draws ever closer, it's getting a never-before-seen view of Charon, the dwarf planet's largest moon. Now experts, for the first time, are able to see that the icy world is marred by miles of craters and intriguing trenches, hinting at what my lie below.
