Scientists have discovered a monstrous black hole about 13 billion light-years away from Earth, and it is the largest they have ever seen, a new study says.
When we think of skin cancer, sunlight usually comes to mind. But an interesting new study reveals that skin damage is possible even in the dark, leaving no place safe.
In a new unique study, scientists have successfully created solar cells using the shells of shrimps and other crustaceans of all things, possibly leading to a sustainable form of renewable energy.
Dark matter may have been responsible for the comet strike that killed off the dinosaurs 66 million years ago, as well as other mass extinction events and geologic upheavals, according to one scientist.
Scientists have discovered the closest flyby ever of an alien star, which passed within a light-year of the Sun some 70,000 years ago and nearly invaded our solar system.
During winter months, residents of northern US cities are experiencing more snowstorms like the recent "historic" nor'easter Juno, and the lack of sunshine is causing vitamin D deficiency, a new study warns.
Geoengineering, or the large-scale manipulation of the Earth's climate, is not the solution to climate change, according to new research. Unfortunately, there is no quick fix to the global climate problem, and curbing carbon emissions is really our best bet to combat its effects.
NASA's Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO) snapped its 100 millionth image of the Sun since it launched into orbit back in 2010. Now, to commemorate this milestone, a pair of NASA's top scientists involved in the mission selected some of their most favorite images. We've selected the best of those best to share with you.
Not getting enough sun? That might not be as bad as you think. Although too little sunlight exposure has been tied to exhaustion, vitamin D deficiency, and seasonal depression, new research has shown that too much sun can reduce human fertility over several generations.
NASA's NuSTAR has taken a break from peering into the far-away Universe and used its high-energy X-rays to snap the most sensitive and stunning images of our Sun to date, putting any Christmas displays on Earth to shame.
Despite the "Silent Night" being a mere two days away, on Christmas Eve, all is not calm in space. Our Sun appears to be breaking out its own last-minute holiday lights for the season, erupting in a massive set of solar activity that began just last Friday.
The Sun's magnetic field is reportedly increasing the number of UK lightning strikes, possibly providing scientists with a new type of early warning system.
Just last weekend, NASA's Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO) noticed the largest sunspot seen in decades forming a blemish on our closest star, and now it has erupted in six substantial flares, according to recent reports.
Just last weekend, NASA's Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO) caught sight of a gigantic dark blemish marring the surface of the Sun. This blemish, called a "sun spot," is the largest seen in this current solar cycle, covering a surface area that could swallow 10 Earth's whole.
