At the current emissions level, there is a 50% chance that global warming will exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius consistently in about seven years, new research suggests.
A weird phenomenon in which electricity flows like water was spotted in a nanowire made of "strange metal" — a bizarre metal phase that has stumped physicists for 40 years.
A sample from the asteroid Bennu, collected by the OSIRIS-REx mission, has arrived at London's Natural History Museum for analysis. Scientists are optimistic that it could contain the seeds of life.
The penguins accrue 11 hours of cumulative sleep a day from a bizarre adaptation that enables them to doze as they guard their nests.
Morton Allport earned his scientific reputation by grave robbing human remains and killing soon-to-be-extinct Tasmanian tigers before shipping them to Europe.
The hand was printed using a technique called slow-curing, which gives plastics more time to set and makes them more durable.
The Supergalactic Plane we are located in doesn't have many spiral galaxies like the Milky Way. Astronomers think they finally know why galaxies like ours are so rare.
China has denied that one of their rockets crashed into the moon's surface in 2022, leaving mysterious twin craters behind, but new research adds fresh evidence to the debate.
DeepMind's new machine learning algorithm takes less than a minute to make its forecasts and can run on a desktop. But it won't replace traditional forecasts anytime soon.
The newly discovered water mass, called the Atlantic Equatorial Water, stretches from Brazil to West Africa.
Scientists have spotted an aurora signal caused by electrons accelerating through a sunspot on our star's surface for the first time ever.
The magnolia wood LignoSat is an attempt to make space junk biodegradable. NASA and Japan's space agency (JAXA) could launch it as soon as 2024.
Climate change and rising sea levels could cause similar floods along the West Coast each year without El Niño by the 2030s, NASA warns.
The universe's early galaxies are way brighter than they should be. The James Webb Space Telescope's discovery of brightly glowing gas around 90% of primordial galaxies may explain why.
The sample from the asteroid Bennu, collected by the OSIRIS-REx mission, was unveiled at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., on Friday.
With five more protons than should be stable, the newly discovered nitrogen-9 isotope sits right on the borderline of physical possibility.
The photos, taken in the 1960s and 1970s by the first spy satellites, reveal that the eastern border of the Roman Empire was a place of vibrant trade.
The asteroid Kamo'oalewa may have been ejected by a massive impact on Earth's moon, a new simulation has revealed.
Researchers at the LIGO gravitational wave observatory used a new technique called frequency-dependent squeezing to boost weak signals above quantum noise.
Astronomers traced a mysterious radio source to three merging galaxies 8 billion light-years away. Studying it could help uncover the universe's missing matter.
Horsehair worms flood their hosts' minds with proteins made from copied chunks of their own genomes.
China's forthcoming Tropical Deep-sea Neutrino Telescope (TRIDENT) will search for the origins of cosmic rays in momentary flashes of light beneath the ocean's surface.
A new analysis has concluded that the Gulf Stream is definitely slowing, but whether it's due to climate change is hard to tell.
Launched on Oct. 13, 2023, the NASA mission to visit the metal-rich asteroid 16 Psyche aims to find crucial clues about the formation of our solar system's planets.
