Researchers have clarified one of the mysteries of 2018 in the field of extragalactic astrophysics: the supposed existence of a galaxy without dark matter. New results show that the galaxy is "normal" with dark matter present.
Researchers have assessed a range of possible scenarios regarding the rate of climate change in 173 African cities for the years 2030, 2060 and 2090. Their results show that a third of African city-dwellers could be affected by deadly heat waves in 2090.
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.
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.
Accounting for the buildup of toxic gases predicted to occur in the atmospheres of most planets narrows the habitable zone for complex life by half and, in some cases, rules it out altogether, the study concludes.
The European Space Agency is developing its own reusable spacecraft. Space Rider will be an un-crewed vehicle with high-tech capabilities that will provide access to space for scientific and commercial enterprises.
Hornsea One officially commenced operations this month. The project is the first in the world with a capacity of over 1GW, double the size of the current world’s largest.
Last month Philippines ordered Canada to take back 69 shipping containers filled with Canadian trash. And now Malaysia has announced that it will be shipping out 450 metric tonnes of plastic trash to its countries of origins.
The new law called the "Graduation Legacy for the Environment Act," it is seen as a valuable opportunity for young people to take action against climate change and hopes to fix deforestation in Philippines.
Concentrations of antibiotics found in some of the world's rivers exceed 'safe' levels by up to 300 times, the first ever global study has discovered.
Two large European studies find positive associations between consumption of highly processed ("ultra-processed") foods and risk of cardiovascular disease and death.
A genetic mutation that a Chinese scientist attempted to create in twin babies born last year, ostensibly to help them fend off HIV infection, is also associated with a 21% increase in mortality in later life.
Clay often forms in the presence of water – a key ingredient for the evolution of life as it is known on Earth – and Curiosity’s latest findings add more evidence that a significant amount of water once pooled and flowed in Gale Crater on Mars.
