A new study led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) offers a twist on a popular theory for how life on Earth began about four billion years ago, challenging the "RNA world" hypothesis, a theory for how RNA... Continue reading

Astronomers have discovered a 'hot molecular core', a cocoon of molecules surrounding a newborn massive star, for the first time outside our Galaxy. The discovery, which marks the first important step for observational studies of extragalactic hot molecular cores and... Continue reading

Astro Mike Massimino takes us inside Johnson Space Center, with a little help from his friends and guests, NASA Flight Directors Emily Nelson and Royce Renfrew, and his co-host Maeve Higgins. Discover just what it takes to keep expedition crews... Continue reading

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope took direct ultraviolet images of the icy moon Europa transiting across the disk of Jupiter. Out of ten observations, Hubble saw what may be water vapor plumes on three of the images. This adds another piece... Continue reading

In recent years, there has been much scientific interest in understanding the Van Allen belts. New technologies now require that telecommunication satellites spend a great deal of time in those belts and that GPS satellites operate in the heart of... Continue reading

China, on its way of implementing the strategy of building a maritime power, is endeavoring to promoting the development of maritime big data and building of "Smart Ocean," using satellite sensing, intelligent buoy, underwater glider, underwater robot, and deep-sea space... Continue reading

SpaceX and Tesla founder Elon Musk will outline a plan on Today at the International Astronautical Congress in Mexico for building an extraterrestrial settlement on the Mars and make "humans a multiplanetary species." Musk views Mars as a "backup drive"... Continue reading

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have imaged what may be water vapor plumes erupting off the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa. This finding bolsters other Hubble observations suggesting the icy moon erupts with high-altitude water vapor plumes. The observation... Continue reading

“Water is generally considered a basic prerequisite for life – at least as we know it on earth,” said Lorenz Roth, who was in charge of analysing the 2013 Hubble observations and who has been working at the Southwest Research... Continue reading

“If we’re going to look for life on Mars, it would be really kind of lame to bring Earth life and find that instead,” Cassie Conley, NASA’s planetary protection officer, told the New York Times. “We have discovered that there... Continue reading

"First, perhaps, it might be best to understand why anyone would want to land on Europa at all. Europa – the second of Jupiter’s four large satellites – is clearly a special place," says Caltech's Mike Brown, the Richard and... Continue reading

The breakthrough relies on ‘spooky’ quantum-physics phenomenon of entanglement, dubbed by Albert Einstein as “spooky action at a distance." Until recently, the idea of quantum radar had remained largely confined to science fiction. China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC), one... Continue reading

“We call it the ‘globular cluster opportunity,’” says Rosanne Di Stefano of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA). “A globular cluster might be the first place in which intelligent life is identified in our galaxy. Sending a broadcast between the... Continue reading

In a recent experiment, a Swedish scientist, Fredrik Lanner, a developmental biologist at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, attempted to modify the genes of a human embryos injecting a gene-editing tool known as CRISPR-Cas9 into carefully thawed five human embryos... Continue reading

A team led by Case Western Reserve University researchers has found a significant new relationship in spiral and irregular galaxies: the acceleration observed in rotation curves tightly correlates with the gravitational acceleration expected from the visible mass only. In a... Continue reading

Ever since NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flew by Pluto last year, evidence has been mounting that the dwarf planet may have a liquid ocean beneath its icy shell. Now, by modeling the impact dynamics that created a massive crater on... Continue reading

International teams of astronomers have used the ESO's Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to explore the distant corner of the Universe first revealed in the iconic images of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field (HUDF). These new ALMA observations are significantly... Continue reading

Our moon is a laboratory: "An archive of solar system history, the signatures of meteorites, comets and the solar wind are written in the dust. A moon village would give scientists the means to explore the body, a lump of... Continue reading

“Whatever we find out, that is what nature chose,” Kyle Cranmer, a physics professor at New York University, told Brian Resnick at VOX. "It’s a good attitude to have when your field yields great disappointments." For most of 2015, evidence... Continue reading

Tiny ocean fossils distributed widely across rock surfaces in the Transantarctic Mountains point to the potential for a substantial rise in global sea levels under conditions of continued global warming, according to a new study. The study, led by Northern... Continue reading

Looking out into the night sky, we see a clumpy universe: planets orbit stars in solar systems and stars are grouped into galaxies, which in turn form enormous galaxy clusters. But cosmologists assume this effect is only local: that if... Continue reading

"China's latest telescope will be able to look faster and further than past searches for extraterrestrial intelligence," says Douglas Vakoch, president of METI International, an organization dedicated to detecting alien intelligence. The world's largest telescope set in the mountainous landscape... Continue reading

Hints of an early exodus of modern humans from Africa may have been detected in living humans. Present-day people outside Africa were thought to descend from a group that left their homeland 60,000 years ago, crossing through Egypt into the... Continue reading

Tiangong 1, China’s first space laboratory, will come to a fiery end. Most decommissioned satellites either burns up over aa ocean or is ejected to a far-off orbital graveyard, but the 8-ton Tiangong 1’s end is shaping up to be... Continue reading
