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.
Humanity faces greater existential threats than it did during the Cold War, according to the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists
Astronomers detected a radio signal from deeper in space than ever before, using a cosmic trick first predicted by Einstein.
