There are a few theories as to why we’ve never found other intelligent life in our Universe. Physicist Brian Cox walks us through them.
The laws of physics don't prefer matter over antimatter. So how can we be certain that distant stars & galaxies aren't made of antimatter?
Within the next few decades, we may well have hard evidence for the existence of alien life on worlds light-years distant from Earth.
Space weather poses a tremendous threat to all satellites, knocking all computer systems offline. Is that a recipe for Kessler syndrome?
Some fascinating observations of K2-18b have come along with horrendous, speculative communications. There's no evidence for oceans or life.
How can you maximize the amount of love and happiness in your life? One of history's greatest scientists found the answer: with math.
Chemical changes inside Mars' core caused it to lose its magnetic field. This, in turn, caused it to lose its oceans. But how?
A more distant galaxy liked the lens so much that it went and put a ring on it. Here's the science behind this remarkable cosmic object.
This measurement is crucial to confirm that one of the assumptions of Einstein’s theory of gravity is valid.
If Einstein couldn’t solve the theory of everything, could anyone? Physicist Michio Kaku explains what it would take.
The hot Big Bang was an energetic, brilliantly luminous event. Today's Universe is alight with stars. But in between, the dark ages ruled.
An enormous amount of antimatter is coming from our galactic center. But the culprit probably isn't dark matter, but merely neutron stars.
Finding a tiny planet around bright stars dozens or hundreds of light-years from Earth is extremely difficult.
Named "Supernova H0pe," it shows how JWST plus gravitational lensing can be used to solve the greatest puzzle facing astronomy today.
An annular eclipse is coming to Earth on October 14, 2023. Six months later, a total solar eclipse is headed our way. Here's the reason why.
Cosmology is unlike other sciences. When our view of the Universe changes, so does our understanding of philosophy and science itself.
Scientists may have detected the somewhat smelly chemical dimethyl sulfide on a planet 120 light-years from Earth.
A spherical structure nearly one billion light-years wide has been spotted in the nearby Universe, dating all the way back to the Big Bang.
The matter that creates black holes won't be what comes out when they evaporate. Will the black hole information paradox ever be solved?
The asteroid is expected to come within 140,000 miles of Earth — well inside the moon’s orbit.
Three fundamental forces matter inside an atom, but gravity is mind-bogglingly weak on those scales. Could extra dimensions explain why?
Looking at our planet with post-Copernican eyes has the power to change how we relate to it and each other.
