There are at least 15 different types of solid water (ice). Now, scientists believe that there might be a second type of liquid water.
The fear of deep bodies of water may be evolutionarily ingrained.
According to the CDC, 50 countries worldwide have drinkable tap water. But look closer, and the picture is more nuanced.
Finding this missing piece of water’s path through the universe offers clues to how it came to be on Earth.
Exoplanet LP 791-18d is likely to have an atmosphere and liquid water.
In one experiment, the Viking landers added water to Martian soil samples. That might have been a very bad idea.
Some fascinating observations of K2-18b have come along with horrendous, speculative communications. There's no evidence for oceans or life.
The Black, Caspian, and Aral Seas are the last surviving fragments of a body of water that stretched from Austria to Turkmenistan.
Why can’t more rainwater be collected for the long, dry spring and summer when it’s needed?
Simple physics makes hauling vast ice chunks thousands of miles fiendishly difficult — but not impossible.
Passing chunks of ice can fertilize ocean waters and play a role in the planet’s carbon cycle.
Fire-retardant gels and slimes combine the best attributes of water and foam.
Flashy desalination technology is more costly and cumbersome than many other solutions.
The divers spend their waking hours either under hundreds of feet of water on the ocean floor or squeezed into an area the size of a restaurant booth.
Despite the enormous mass of the Earth, simply depleting our groundwater is changing our axial tilt. Simple Newtonian physics explains why.
The way that the ancient Megalodon adapted to water temperature has important implications for modern marine creatures.
Despite the vast number of planets in the Universe, Earth's specific evolutionary history guarantees that its life forms — including humans — are utterly unique.
About six million years ago, the Mediterranean was sealed off from the Atlantic, and over centuries it ran dry. One megaflood reversed that.
Most of us only ever see a fraction of a full rainbow: an arc. But optically, a full rainbow makes a complete circle. Physics explains why.
Decades ago, a disaster left three million acres of land uninhabitable and killed between 85,600 and 240,000 people. Chernobyl? No. Banqiao dam in China.
Salt causes a dehydration-like state that encourages the conversion of the starch in the french fry to fructose.
The flavor is "simultaneously fascinating and... abusive."
The 1,200-year-old "Book of Ingenious Devices" contains designs for futuristic inventions like gas masks, water fountains, and digging machines.
The solution involves the infamous Navier-Stokes equations, which are so difficult, there is a $1-million prize for solving them.
Anyone up for a crisp, blonde ale?
