Radio signals in Earth's orbit can create noise in astronomy data. Scientists are planning a workaround that'll be available to researchers for free.
Earth, our home planet, is the 3rd planet from the sun.
El Niño is in full swing and will likely remain "strong" this winter, but its effect on weather patterns in the U.S. depends on the behavior of an unusually warm blob in the western Pacific, experts say.
The world's largest iceberg, known as A23a, has broken loose and is moving past the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula in new satellite images from the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission.
This might indicate a "glaciological tipping point" on the Antarctic Peninsula, an important consideration as global warming continues to affect ocean temperatures.
The newly discovered water mass, called the Atlantic Equatorial Water, stretches from Brazil to West Africa.
A new series of experiments has shown that the mysterious "E-prime layer," which surrounds Earth's outer core, is created by water that leaks deep into our planet's interior.
DeepMind's new machine learning algorithm takes less than a minute to make its forecasts and can run on a desktop. But it won't replace traditional forecasts anytime soon.
Russia's Klyuchevskoy volcano, which is the tallest volcano in Europe and Asia, violently erupted on Nov. 1 and left behind a trail of smoke and ash that was photographed by NASA satellites.
A laser gyroscope at an underground lab in Germany has detected the minute variations in Earth's rotation, an advance that may help scientists build better climate models.
The brightest gamma-ray burst ever seen was also the first to impact Earth's upper ionosphere, a new study suggests.
While the term “planet” has a clear definition, there is no strict definition of a moon. We can either say that there is one moon around Earth, or more than 160 million moons.
The world's first satellite capable of detecting industrial sources of carbon emissions from space has just reached orbit — and it promises to be a game-changer.
A new AI method can rapidly spot and map large icebergs in satellite images, helping scientists track changes to icebergs and their meltwater.
Thanks to century-old photos taken by Danish pilots, we can study long-term changes in Greenland's glaciers.
NASA is flying the agency's high-altitude ER-2 aircraft over the American Southwest in order to map deposits of minerals that are critical for electronics manufacturing.
