Tanpopo mission addresses the possibility of natural interplanetary transport of microbial life called panspermia.
ETH researchers used computer simulations to classify the current activity of corona structures on the surface of Venus.
The world could see average global temperatures 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 Fahrenheit) above the pre-industrial average for the first time in the coming five years.
The South Pole has been warming three times faster than the rest of the planet in the last 30 years due to warmer tropical ocean temperatures.

European astronomers have found the closest black hole to Earth yet, so near that the two stars dancing with it can be seen by the naked eye.
Astronomers have found an exoplanet more than twice the size of Earth to be potentially habitable, opening the search for life to planets significantly larger than Earth but smaller than Neptune.
Researcher found a place with no microbe living there. What makes the Earth habitable? Is it possible with no microbe? It has the right chemical ingredients for life, including water and carbon. But European scientists have recently discovered a place on Earth where no one can live because there is no microbe living. Scientists have […]
NASA scientists used a high-temperature "oven" to simulate conditions that might be found in planets outside the solar system.
TEHRAN – A huge space rock approaching Earth is set to make a relatively close pass next week when it flies by our planet at about one-eighth of the distance to the moon. NASA said it would use the opportunity to test its ability to tackle the asteroid threat. Asteroid 2012 TC4, approaching Earth at […]
