NASA spacecraft delivering biggest sample yet from an asteroid

A NASA spacecraft will fly by Earth on Sunday and drop off what is expected to be at least a cupful of rubble it grabbed from the asteroid Bennu, closing out a seven-year quest.

The Moon's Craters Might Contain Far Less Ice Than We Hoped

According to a new analysis of lunar craters, these pocks and divots that mar and characterize the lunar surface are too young for the long-term retention of ancient reservoirs of water ice.

NASA Probe Sails Directly Through Sun's Intense Plasma Burst

The intrepid little spacecraft flew through a coronal mass ejection, helping scientists understand space weather.

Electrons from Earth may be forming water on the moon

Hawaian researchers discovered that high energy electrons in Earth's plasma sheet are contributing to weathering processes on the moon's surface and the electrons may have aided the formation of water on the lunar surface.

Public exposure to Bisphenol A exceeds acceptable health safety levels

Population exposure to the synthetic chemical Bisphenol A (BPA), which is used in everything from plastic and metal food containers to reusable water bottles and drinking water pipes in Europe is well above acceptable health safety levels.

Mysterious Dark Matter Mapped Across Space

The curvature of space-time around a colossal mass has yielded the most detailed measurement of the cosmic distribution of dark matter yet.

Something Is Suppressing The Growth of The Universe

Something is causing nothingness to grow, squeezing its way into the gaps between galaxies to gently push the large scale structure of the Universe apart at an ever increasing rate. We call this something "dark energy".

Nasa's Perseverance produces breathable oxygen on Mars

Nasa's Perseverance rover has been able to generate 122g of breathable oxygen - enough to sustain a human for three hours on the Red Planet.

Humanity deep in the danger zone of planetary boundaries

Six of nine planetary boundaries—climate change, deforestation, biodiversity loss, synthetic chemicals including plastics, freshwater depletion, and nitrogen use—are already deep in the red zone, an international team of 29 scientists reported.

Australian Radio Telescope Spots Possible "Polar Ring" Galaxy

A radio telescope in Australia recently captured a stunning image of NGC 4632, a galaxy some 56 million light-years from Earth. The image reveals a halo of cool hydrogen orbiting perpendicular to the galaxy itself.

Giant cracks are appearing across southwestern US

Many southwestern parts of the United States have been spotted with giant cracks or fissures in the ground. As per reports, these fissures have occurred due to harnessing groundwater indiscriminately over the years.  

Webb Discovers Methane, Carbon Dioxide in Atmosphere of K2-18 b

Scientists believe black holes are lurking much closer to Earth

The closest black hole to Earth was thought to be 1,560 light-years away - but a new study suggests there could be one around 150 light-years away.

Mysterious Black Hole Twins May Fuel The Brightest Galaxies in Space

According to a new analysis of a type of galaxy known as a blazar, the best explanation for unusual changes in their glow is a pair of supermassive black holes locked in a decaying orbit.
