Recreated particles of Titan's haze could help us understand how life began on Earth
Beyond Earth, the general scientific consensus is that the best place to search for evidence of extraterrestrial life is Mars. However, it is by no means the only place.
Earth’s magnetic field reversal 42,000 years ago triggered a global environmental crisis
Nearly 42,000 years ago, when Earth’s magnetic fields reversed, this triggered major environmental changes, extinction events, and long-term changes in human behavior, a new study reports.
Earth has been spinning faster lately
Scientists around the world have noted that the Earth has been spinning on its axis faster lately – the fastest ever recorded. Several scientists have spoken to the press about the unusual phenomenon, with some pointing out that this past year saw some of the shortest days ever recorded.
There's mounting evidence that life on Earth started with more than just RNA
How life originated on Earth continues to fascinate scientists, but it's not easy peering back billions of years into the past. Now, evidence is growing for a relatively new hypothesis of how life began: With a very precise mix of RNA and DNA.
Continents were weak, prone to destruction in their infancy
Monash University geologists in Melbourne, Australia, have shed new light on the early history of the Earth through their discovery that continents were weak and prone to destruction in their infancy.
Discovery of 'cryptic species' shows Earth is even more  'cryptic species'
A growing number of “cryptic species” hiding in plain sight have been unmasked in the past year, driven in part by the rise of DNA barcoding, a technique that can identify and differentiate between animal and plant species using their genetic divergence.
New understanding about ancient branch of life on Earth
Aberdeen scientists in Scotland have made an important discovery about a branch of ancient life which plays an important – if perhaps not fully understood role – in our world's ecosystem.
Lab developing device to help Earth dodge asteroids
In a corner of the campus at Riga Technical University in Latvia, a team of scientists is working on technology that could one day stop asteroids from smashing into Earth.
Earth 2,000 light years closer to supermassive black hole at center of our galaxy than we thought
A new map of the Milky Way by Japanese space experts has put Earth 2,000 light years closer to the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy.
How asteroid dust may reveal secrets of life on Earth
In a few days, a capsule containing samples of soil from a distant asteroid will be released by a robot spaceship and dropped into Earth’s upper atmosphere. If all goes well, the container will parachute safely on to the Woomera test range in South Australia on December 6, completing a mission that has involved a three-billion-mile journey across our Solar System.
Looking for another Earth? Here are 300 million, maybe
A decade ago, a band of astronomers set out to investigate one of the oldest questions taunting philosophers, scientists, priests, astronomers, mystics and the rest of the human race: How many more Earths are out there, if any? How many far-flung planets exist that could harbor life as we know it?
Asteroid samples tucked into capsule for return to Earth
A NASA spacecraft tucked more than 2 pounds of asteroid samples into a capsule for return to Earth after losing some of its precious loot because of a jammed lid, scientists said.
Asteroid Bennu has been hanging out with Earth for over a million years
The near-Earth asteroid Bennu has been keeping our planet company for a long time. Bennu, new research suggests, has been in an orbit that brings it near to Earth for 1.75 million years.
