Current methods of tracking space junk in Earth's orbit only follow objects bigger than a softball. A new technique could trace the 99% of junk that's smaller.
Fresh water that trickled down into Earth's crust 6 million years ago became trapped thousands of feet beneath the Hyblaean Mountains in Sicily, forming an aquifer that has not budged since.
A new vaccine, so far tested only in mice, broadly activates the immune system against a wide array of bacteria and fungi.
The early galaxy AzTECC71 is so far away it keeps disappearing from telescope observations. A new study by the James Webb Space Telescope finally pins it down.

Supervolcanoes are defined by their ability to produce supereruptions — explosions of more than 240 cubic miles of volcanic material. But scientists disagree on how useful the term is.
The search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) continues as scientists look to low-frequency radio waves that have long gone unexplored.
An early trial hints that psilocybin could be a safe and effective treatment for depressive episodes in bipolar II disorder and should be studied further.
Peering deep into 'The Brick,' a dark, chaotic gas cloud at the heart of the Milky Way, the James Webb Space Telescope uncovered secrets that could shake up theories of star formation.
Elephants appear to have evolved their long, grasping trunks as a result of climate change pressures on their ancestors millions of years ago.
Archaeologists working in the West Bank say they've discovered a tiny lead "curse tablet" that may include the oldest known mention of the Hebrew name of God "Yahweh" ever found.
Tiny biological robots can move on their own, assemble into 'superbots' and encourage nerve cells regrow.
While hunting for dark matter, astronomers accidentally discovered the first known stellar stream stretching between galaxies. The trail of stars is also the longest ever seen.
NASA and scientists from around the world are sending new science instruments, as well as a few stocking stuffers, to the moon on Dec. 24 in the debut launch of a new rocket.
Bears that are struggling to hibernate due to abnormally warm weather in Russia's Amur region are wandering around in a daze, having suppressed their metabolism in preparation for winter.
