An experiment that solved a 100-year-old mystery posed by Einstein just got up to 50% more powerful by squeezing light
LIGO can now detect gravitational waves almost every week, thanks to a new instrument that squeezes photons in a vacuum.
A record-breaking NASA probe circling the sun has found never-before-seen spikes of solar wind and a flipping magnetic field
The Parker Solar Probe's study of the sun's corona and wind could lead to new protections for astronauts and Earth's electric grid.
Ikea has helped to redecorate the inside of the station itself using a range of its furniture, and photos show the result.
NASA’s plans for the 2020s include landing humans on the moon, detecting quakes on Mars, and defending Earth from deadly asteroids
One year ago, NASA announced it would send astronauts back to the moon. Since then, new spacecraft and telescopes have filled its plans for the 2020s.
The LB-1 black hole has a mass 70 times that of our sun — larger than scientists thought could exist in our galaxy.
The human species will likely destroy itself long before the sun kills everyone on Earth, a Harvard scientists says
Scientist Avi Loeb wrote that we should colonize space to survive the sun's future expansion. But humanity might wipe itself out before then, he said.
A stunning animation by a planetary scientist shows how huge our solar system is — and why that makes it so hard to depict
The planets are so far apart, and the sun is so big, that you wouldn't be able to see anything in an accurate model of the solar system.
A handful of recent discoveries has transformed our understanding of Earth-like planets in the galaxy. Here’s why Earths might be common.
There could be up to 10 billion Earth-like planets in our galaxy alone. That's good news for astronomers seeking alien life.
There is no permanent dark side of the moon, and this simple animation by a former NASA scientist explains why
The far side of the moon and the dark side are not the same thing. This animation shows how one is constantly moving, while the other never changes.
The most mind-boggling scientific discoveries of 2019 include the first image of a black hole, a giant squid sighting, and an exoplanet with water vap...
This year, scientists rendered the first-ever image of a black hole, glimpsed a giant squid, and identified a possibly habitable exoplanet.
