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.
The most high-resolution map yet reveals something we previously never knew about: an ancient ocean floor that may wrap around the core. This thin but dense layer exists around 2,900 kilometers below the surface.
NASA has awarded a contract to TransAstra to clean up space junk. One category of debris they will target is CubeSats, small satellites the size of a Rubik’s Cube. The recycling centers would allow the collected debris to be recycled.
The Deniliquin structure spans up to 520 kilometres in diameter. This exceeds the size of the near-300km- wide Vredefort impact structure in South Africa, which to date has been considered the world's largest.
We’ve known about the vents above for a long time, but this is basically a completely new ecosystem below.
Scientists are seeking to confirm that a black rock discovered in Morocco in 2018 departed Earth's pull for outer space, only to return to it like a prodigal child.
That brings the total to 43,454 undersea mountains, almost doubling the number we knew about.
The South Atlantic Anomaly is growing, according to data that appeared in a government report published earlier this year.
New findings suggest the water originates from the space between solar systems, billions of years before the birth of our sun.
Japan has recounted its islands -- and discovered it has 7,000 more than it previously thought.
The new layer of the inner core consists of an iron-nickel alloy, like other parts of the core, but it has a different crystal structure.
Turkey lies at the intersection of three of the tectonic plates that make up the Earth's crust: the Anatolian, Arabian, and African plates. Arabia is moving northwards into Europe, causing the Anatolian plate to be pushed out westwards.
Chinese scientists say that based on their calculations, a small imbalance in the electromagnetic and gravitational forces could slow and even reverse the inner core’s rotation.
