One scientists believes that it could be an as-yet-undiscovered breed of polar bear, and wants to send an expedition to find out.
NASA and ODG have formed a partnership to create glasses that project critical information onto the lenses so that astronauts can do away with printed instructions.
Scientists previously believed that there wasn't much to the tiny moon, just a third of the size of ours, but new research suggests that Enceladus could hold some intriguing secrets.
For decades, biotech companies had a monopoly on their drugs until the FDA recently created a regulatory pathway that would allow for the creation of "biosimilars."
The Jerdon's babbler was thought to have disappeared from the planet back in the 1940s, but it was rediscovered by naturalists.
The star, likely blasted away from a supernova explosion, is speeding at 1,200 kilometers per second and is moving fast enough to leave the galaxy.
Although El Nino has brought relief from dry weather in the past, the storms it has brought this time around were too warm to lead to buildup of the snowpack in the Sierra Nevadas, a primary source of water for California.
Thanks to what is known as "gravitational lensin," a cluster of galaxies has bent light from a very distant supernova, causing it to appear four different times in four different places.
A 1998 episode of "The Simpsons" shows Homer drawing up an equation on the blackboard that at least one scientists says definitely depicts the Higgs boson, also known as the "God particle."
The galaxy, which is just 700 million years removed from the Big Bang, has enough dust to rival that of our Milky Way, which is 13 billion years old -- something that shouldn't be possible, scientists thought.
The spacecraft captured its own shadow in a recent flyby with the comet that brought it just 6 kilometers from the celestial body's surface.
Scientists believe methane-based life forms that don't need oxygen could swim in the vast, frigid methane seas of Saturn's largest moon.
Scientists have found what is known as an intermediate-mass black hole (IMBH), which is the elusive link between collapsed stars and the supermassive black holes that eventually form and become the center of galaxies.
Scientists were able to prove that traces of wheat found in the area weren't grown domestically, as they couldn't find traces of wheat pollen in local samples of trees and animals.
The Dawn mission will begin orbiting the giant asteroid in late April and will stay there until June 2016, when the nearly decade-long mission comes to an end -- hopefully shedding more light on those bright spots in the meantime.
The study finds that growing worldwide carbon emissions are being absorbed by the ocean, and the problem is causing widespread problems along both coasts of the United States.
Scientists performed a 3D scan on the statue, and conducted an endoscopy in order to learn more about the mummy, which is believed to be a Buddhist monk.
Scientists aren't sure why the bladderwort is so efficient with its DNA, but they hope to learn more in future studies.
Computer code developed by the Interstellar team could assist astrophysicists in their simulation of black holes.
The "discovery" had been hailed as a major breakthrough and the first direct evidence of the Big Bang, but further analysis by an ESA telescope showed it was only space dust that caused the signature.
The new budget would allow NASA to aggressively pursue missions to Mars, Europa, and elsewhere -- although it remains to be seen whether the Republican-led Congress will sign off on it.
The sea slugs are able to survive farther north than their usual habitat due to warming oceans.
The finding opens up the possibility that there are other possible locations where life could be discovered out in space.
In an experiment, researchers found that baby chicks associated small numbers with the left side and large numbers with the right side.
The Northern African python is extremely elusive, making it difficult for wildlife officials to track it down in Miami before it can invade the Everglades.
