Mass anomaly detected under the moon's largest crater

A mysterious large mass of material has been discovered beneath the largest crater in our solar system - the Moon's South Pole - Aitken basin and may contain metal from the asteroid that crashed into the Moon and formed the crater.

Climate change make Siberia more habitable

Large parts of Asian Russia could become habitable by the late 21st century due to climate change, new research has found. Scientists used current and predicted climate scenarios to examine the climate comfort of Asian Russia.

Double asteroid tracked by VLT in planetary defense test

The European Very Large Telescope participated in test coordinated by the International Asteroid Warning Network, successfully targeting, tracking and imaging a double asteroid as it flew within 5.2 million km of Earth on 25 May.

Scientists Witness the Birth of a Submarine Volcano for the First Time

Thanks to the international researchers, a baby submarine volcano roughly 2,630 feet high and as wide as 3 miles has been spotted 2 miles beneath the waves of the Indian ocean.

Evidence for ancient magnetic sense in humans

The human brain can unconsciously respond to changes in Earth's magnetic fields, according to a team of geoscientists and neurobiologists.

Traces of Giant, 2,700-Year-Old Solar Storm Detected in Greenland Ice

An extreme form of solar storm, known as a solar proton event (SPE) struck our planet in 660 BCE. If an event of such magnitude were to happen today, it would likely wreak havoc on our technological infrastructure.

Multicellular Life Began 1.5 Billion Years Earlier than Thought

The preservation of trace fossils, suggests that multicellular organisms that could move around to reach food resources may already have existed 2.1 billion years ago, more than 1.5 billion years older than previously thought.

Mountains Discovered Deep Within Earth's Mantle

Data from an enormous earthquake in Bolivia showed mountains at the base of the mantle's transition zone, located 660 kilometers below our feet. These mountains may be bigger than anything on the surface of the Earth.

Scientists fire harpoon on mission to eradicate space junk

A spacecraft has successfully fired a harpoon into a target orbiting Earth in an operation that could help clean-up the tonnes of space junk threatening telecommunications satellites.

Earth's Magnetic North Pole Is Moving Fast

Scientists have found that the magnetic north pole is moving at a speed of about 55 km every year. A hundred years ago, the pole was located near the coast of northern Canada. Now, it is in the middle of the Arctic Ocean.

Massive Geoengineering Projects

From planting continent-long forests to inducing rainfall, researchers have begun proposing, testing, and in some cases implementing large-scale geoengineering projects to radically transform the planet.

Earth's Oldest Rock Found on the Moon

An international team of scientists found evidence that the rock was launched from Earth by a large impacting asteroid or comet. The impact sent material into space, where it collided with the surface of the Moon 4 bil years ago.

First sun-dimming experiment will test a way to cool Earth

Researchers plan to spray sunlight-reflecting particles into the stratosphere, an approach that could ultimately be used to quickly lower the planet’s temperature.

Seismic Waves Propagated Across Globe

This phenomenon has affected a large part of the globe, which originated – according to the hypotheses – about 24 km off the coast of Mayotte, a French island located between Africa and the northern tip of Madagascar.

Oxygen could have been available to life as early as 3.5 billion years ago

Microbes could have performed oxygen-producing photosynthesis at least one billion years earlier in the history of the Earth than previously thought.
