Sponges were most likely the first animals to evolve who helped in oxygenating the earth's oceans, according to a new study. The findings are the contrary to the traditional view that a rise in oxygen was responsible for their development.
The Earth's magnetic field which is also known as magnetosphere, stretches from the planet's core out into space only to act as a shield to protect the Earth from the high-energy solar activity, a new research has found.
For the second day in a row, an asteroid buzzed past Earth.
In a quest to find another watery planet with life, NASA's Kepler team has identified 715 new planets that are orbiting stars beyond solar system.
The Arctic is not white and bright anymore as it used to be because of the reason that more ice is melting in the ocean leading to a major global problem, a new study has found.
One in four Americans does not know that Earth revolves around the sun, according to a recent survey by National Science Foundation.
More than 90 percent of all life on Earth was destroyed in just 60,000 years, according to the latest study of Permian mass extinction. Permian mass extinction is the greatest die-off in the past 540 million years.
Scientists have confirmed the previous theory that suggested a correlation between the migration patterns of ocean salmon and Earth's magnetic field.
Dogs align themselves with the Earth’s north-south axis when going to the bathroom, scientists have discovered. Even the smallest change in Earth’s magnetic field can influence their position.
Four billion years ago, the Earth’s mantle was hotter than that of today, a new study finds. The temperatures were so high that the crust simply melted back into the mantle.
If emissions of greenhouse gases were not curbed, the planet would heat up by a minimum of 4C by 2100, says a new scientific study.
A new study has revealed that global warming is increasing at an alarming rate which might result into intense droughts. If not much was done to minimize the rapid increase in global warning, the earth might become unlivable by 2050 or 2100.
NASA released a natural-color image of Saturn taken from space on Tuesday. The photo is the first in which Saturn, its moons and rings, and Earth, Venus and Mars all are visible.
An estimated one in every five sun-like stars is orbited by a potentially habitable, Earth-size planet. This is great news as it means the universe has plentiful real estate that could be hospitable to life as we know it, according to a new analysis of observations by NASA's Kepler Space Telescope.
Speculation has come and gone as to when the world will end, but now scientists have put a date to when Earth will become unable to host life. Rest assured though, that day will only come some 1.75 billion years from now.
