A newly discovered exoplanet is believed to be hotter than most stars. It's a gas planet like Jupiter but it is 2.8 times bigger than the Solar System's own gas planet.
New study shows that car side windows do not provide the same level of protection against ultraviolet-A radiation compared to the front wind shield, increasing the risk of cataracts and skin cancer on frequent drivers.
Astronomers recently discovered two supermassive black holes in the quasar known as Markarian 231, using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. This suggests that these massive black holes form from violent mergers.
With spring projected to be shorter than ever this year, summer is fast approaching, and that means it's about time to lather up on sunscreen. And now that scientists have discovered that fish can produce their own sunscreen, it has inspired them to make the product for humans.
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.
Here's something you likely haven't thought about. Plants, just like you or I, have skin - just with a slightly different appearance and texture. So why is it that these organisms, which survive off getting as much sunlight as possible, don't ever get sunburn? A team of researchers now believe they have the answer, discovering a naturally produced "sunscreen" that coats leaves and shoots.
A team of US and German researchers has measured the highest level of ultraviolet radiation ever recorded on Earth's surface - in the Bolivian Andes - and their study indicates that depleting ozone may be what caused such harmful radiation levels.
