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.
A new collection of documents found within the State Archives of Florence suggests that da Vinci's mother was an enslaved girl kidnapped from the Caucasus.
Astronomers spotted a massive coronal mass ejection (CME) expanding its ethereal wings as it barrelled out of the sun and toward Mercury.
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.
A relative of the tuberculosis bacterium has long been known to convert hydrogen from the air into electricity. Now, scientists have discovered how.
Astronomers have detected enormous shockwaves rattling the cosmic web that connects all galaxies in the universe, offering vital clues on how the largest structures in space were shaped.
A strange blob has been seen rapidly circling our galaxy's central black hole. Now, astronomers have identified it as the exploded debris from two merging stars.
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.
The toilet was found in the Shaanxi province's Yueyang City Ruins and was likely used by high-ranking officials during the early years of China's first unified empire.
The James Webb Space Telescope spotted six gigantic galaxies, each roughly the size of our own Milky Way, that formed at a bafflingly fast pace — taking shape just 500 million years after the Big Bang.
The expansion of black holes alongside the cosmos could be explained if the cosmic monsters contained dark energy in their cores, the driving force behind the universe's growth.
Sketches found inside Leonardo da Vinci's sketchbooks, show that he had already grasped the essence of Einstein’s 1907 ‘Equivalence Principle’ centuries before the physicist.
The death cap mushroom accounts for more than 90% of worldwide mushroom-related deaths. Its ubiquitous spread could be down to a weird genetic cloning trick.
The light from the distant Sparkler galaxy was spotted in the James Webb Telescope's First Deep Field and could teach us how our own Milky Way devoured other galaxies to grow.
The green comet C/2022 E3, last seen 50,000 years ago, will zoom past Mars this week. This could be humanity’s last chance to see the comet up close.
The Feb. 6 earthquake in Turkey and Syria was so deadly because the region sits on a boundary between multiple tectonic plates, while soil and building conditions make strong earthquakes more likely to cause damage.
A volcano-like eruption on the surface of a dead neutron star could explain its sudden slowdown and the slew of fast radio bursts that followed
The cosmic web is a gigantic network of crisscrossing celestial superhighways that connects nearly everything in the universe.
