A new study has revealed that 380 zettajoules of energy was trapped by global warming between 1971 and 2020.
The known population of the Yangtze giant softshell turtle is now just two males. Experts said that if the female had survived, she could have "laid a hundred eggs or more a year."
The mostly white orca calf was spotted by a whale-watching vessel. It most likely has a pigment-related condition called leucism, experts say.
A stunning composite image of the sun during a recent 'hybrid eclipse' in Australia is further proof that solar activity is ramping up.
Researchers may be a step closer to identifying dark matter after studying unusual cases of gravitational lensing caused by "dark matter halos" surrounding distant galaxies.
The hefty space rock, known as 2006 HV5, is around 1,000 feet wide and will hurtle past our planet at around 39,000 mph.
The 14-foot great hammerhead washed ashore on a beach in Alabama. Researchers have since dissected the expectant mother but are unsure exactly what killed her.
The sisters were separated at birth due to medical complications, and they remained apart for more than two years after one was rejected by the mother.
The rover has finally lost a pesky rock that had become lodged in its front left wheel "like a pebble in its shoe." The stone had accompanied the rover for more than half its time on the Red Planet.
NASA has converted years of satellite data on Earth's magnetosphere into eerie sound clips that can be used by citizen scientists to help make new discoveries.
Shortly after Mercury reached its closest point to the sun, its massive, comet-like tail became unusually visible in the night sky and was captured in a stunning new photo.
The all-white bottlenose calf, which was swimming with around 200 other dolphins, was spotted by a lucky couple on their wedding day.

The potential new mineral was discovered in a chunk of "fossilized lightning," or fulgurite, that was left behind when a tree in Florida was struck by lightning.
Researchers were able to replicate how solar flares form by creating banana-sized loops of plasma in a lab. The results show that the mini flares are an excellent proxy for studying the real things.
Gold miners unearthed a mangled lump of mummified flesh, which upon further inspection turned out to be a balled-up Arctic ground squirrel.
The never-before-seen fish was spotted 5 miles below the ocean's surface in the Izu-Ogasawara Trench near Japan.
