Satellites are watching closely as the world's largest volcano erupts for the first time in decades.
The minerals were found inside a slice of the El Ali meteorite, which was discovered in Somalia in 2020.
A quantum experiment has been used to model the dynamics of a wormhole, which could be the key to uniting quantum physics and Einstein's general relativity.
Astronomers are increasingly concerned about the future of the night sky as new images show shocking trails left by a massive communications satellite against otherwise clear, dark patches of sky.
This view of Mauna Loa by a Maxar Technologies satellite on Nov. 28, 2022, shows the dramatic scenes unfolding during Mauna Loa's eruption.
Astronomers have made the most distant observation of a black hole ripping apart a star and feasting upon it, thanks to a jet of stellar "leftovers" blasted directly toward Earth.
By using a chain of atoms to simulate a black hole's event horizon, researchers have shown that Hawking radiation may exist just as the late physicist described.
Sea levels are expected to rise around the contiguous U.S. faster than previously thought, a new NASA study finds.
Astronomers may finally have a way to hunt for a monstrous supermassive black hole they suspect lurks in the dwarf galaxy next door.

China has completed the construction of the Daocheng Solar Radio Telescope (DSRT), the world's largest array of telescopes dedicated to studying the sun and how its behavior affects Earth.
Andromeda, the Milky Way's neighboring spiral galaxy, may be a cosmic cannibal that has been growing by chowing down on smaller galaxies.
A structure in the heart of the Perseus galaxy cluster can now be seen as an otherworldly display of reds and blues thanks to a new technique that involves merging X-ray and radio data.
Reference Mars, the fourth planet from the sun is famed for its rusty red appearance. Here we explore the Red Planet in more detail and see why scientists find it so intriguing.
