A large scale expansion in bioenergy crop production could be just as detrimental to biodiversity as climate change itself, according to new research.
Astronomers have identified some of the earliest galaxies in the Universe.
Uranus was hit by a massive object roughly twice the size of Earth that caused the planet to tilt and could explain its freezing temperatures, according to new research.
A Multiverse—where our Universe is only one of many—might not be as inhospitable to life as previously thought, according to new research.
The risk of man-made earthquakes due to fracking is greatly reduced if high-pressure fluid injection used to crack underground rocks is 895m away from faults in the Earth's crust, according to new research.
Large and small scale solar eruptions might all be triggered by a single process, according to new research that leads to better understanding of the Sun's activity.
Astronomers have developed a way to detect the ultraviolet (UV) background of the Universe, which could help explain why there are so few small galaxies in the cosmos.
Scientists led by Durham University's Institute for Computational Cosmology ran the huge cosmological simulations that can be used to predict the rate at which gravitational waves caused by collisions between the monster ...
Astronomers believe they might have observed the first potential signs of dark matter interacting with a force other than gravity.
Scientists believe they have found a way to explain why there are not as many galaxies orbiting the Milky Way as expected.
