The names of the four astronauts who will make a trip around the moon on the upcoming Artemis 2 mission were announced by NASA.
Three species of marine worm have been described by scientists in Japan, who named them after folkloric demons because of their spooky glow.
A new model has predicted that Earth's population is likely to decrease in all scenarios across the next century and will peak nowhere near the 11 billion previously forecast.
Astronomers used gravitational lensing and supercomputers to identify the colossal black hole, which is among the largest ever found.
Scientists detected water trapped inside glass spherules on the moon after analyzing soil samples brought back by China's Chang'e-5 mission.
Five locks taken from Ludwig van Beethoven's head have revealed that he may likely have died from liver disease, not lead poisoning as was previously thought.
Signatures of neutrinos, or ghostly particles that rarely interact with others, were tentatively spotted in the Large Hadron Collider in 2021. Now, physicists have confirmed they are real.
Scientists have found uracil, one of the key building blocks for RNA, on the 200 million-mile-distant asteroid Ryugu
The UN's final IPCC report warns that drastic action must be taken immediately, but staving off disaster is within humanity's grasp.
Animal and human remains were excavated from a mustatil, an ancient desert monument believed to have been used for ritual practices in Saudi Arabia.
Astronomers used NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory to spot two pairs of gigantic black holes set for two separate, first-of-their-kind collisions.
A fossilized ankylosaur voice box reveals that these beasts may have sported a far more sophisticated vocal range than scientists originally thought.
An asteroid that was initially given 1-in-600 chance of wiping out an entire city on Valentine's Day 2046 is now expected to almost definitely whizz past us without incident.

New James Webb Space Telescope observations reveal that the galaxy GS-9209 had its star-forming power abruptly "quenched" by mysterious forces after millions of years of productivity.
Scientists who have thrown a single atom from one pair of optical tweezers to another say that the feat could be used to build better quantum computers.
Astronomers have spotted water that looks remarkably similar to our own in orbit around a young star 1,300 light years from Earth.

The mysterious plant, Thismia kobensis, was rediscovered growing a few inches from a forest floor in Japan.
A new proposal suggests using stem cell-derived 'minibrains' to create brand-new biocomputers. Such 'organoid computers' could be far off, but ethical questions abound.
The discovery of a hidden primordial black hole, which formed just 750 million years after the Big Bang, suggests that it may be the 'tip of the iceberg' of the cosmic monsters hiding in the early universe.
