For some time now, scientists have been trying to determine whether the Red Planet once held water suitable for life, and now new research adds to the growing evidence, finding that belts of glaciers on Mars boast enough water to flood the entire planet.
Not too long ago, scientists on the hunt for habitable worlds and extraterrestrial life would have said that the best bet is to look for where there is water. However, they now understand that this sole condition really doesn't do much to narrow things down, as the Universe may very well be awash with the stuff.
Scientists have discovered signs of ancient water activity on Mars in a now- dried up lake system, adding to growing evidence that the Red Planet was once habitable for life, according to a new study.
Our own Milky Way galaxy harbors thousands of potentially habitable planets, telling scientists that in the search for life not on Earth, they should be looking a little closer to home.
California is in the midst of the worst drought the region's seen in a millennium, which is rapidly depleting its water supply, and now a NASA scientist warns that the state has only one year of water left.
A fossil skull recently discovered in East Greenland is helping to reveal a bit more about tetrapods - creatures dating back millions of years ago - and their transition from water to land, a new study says.
Scientists have developed a new energy device that harnesses carbon dioxide in such a way that it could power life on Mars, according to a new study.
Researchers have determined that a primitive ocean on Mars may have once held more water than is currently found in Earth's vast Arctic Ocean. This paints a very different picture from the dusty Red Planet that we know today, and raises questions about where all that water could have gone.
Well...not exactly, but scientists have concluded that if one does exist, this would be what the new life would look like. Living on Saturn's moon Titan, it would have to metabolize and reproduce akin to life on Earth, strengthening the theory that Titan may be habitable, according to new research.
There's a new cowboy in town, and he's getting ready to wrangle in some game-changing data about our planet's water. NASA's new SMAP satellite has successfully deployed its massive antenna - a structure that engineers at the agency's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) say is not unlike a giant lasso.
Women often go to great lengths (pun intended) to gain the most perfect, curly, long eyelashes using mascara, fake eyelashes and even treatments like Latisse. And now scientists have revealed the perfect lash length, proving that more isn't always better.
When you're eating a juicy hamburger, you would hardly think that you are affecting the health of the planet - but according to the federal government, you are. An advisory panel of nutritionists and researchers are advising in a new report that Americans eat less meat in order to save the environment.
Warm Atlantic Ocean waters are causing sea ice to melt in the Arctic, further contributing to the disappearance of this land mass, according to new research.
In a new breakthrough study, scientists have successfully tricked plants into tolerating drought and given vegetation across the globe hope of survival amidst the world's ever-changing climate.
Scientists have long debated whether warming temperatures around the globe would mean a stormier atmosphere. And while that doesn't seem to be the case, new research has revealed that big storms are only going to get bigger, while small storms are going to shrink.
