A gamma ray burst that occurred 12.1 billion years ago has been detected, marking one of the earliest known examples of these ultra-powerful explosions. It's also one of the brightest ever seen. Gamma-Ray bursts are rare but exceptionally powerful explosions, thought to occur as neutron stars form or merge. "As NASA points out, gamma-ray bursts are the most powerful explosions in the unive

A new kind of ‘Godzilla’ planet - so-called because of its huge size - has been discovered 560 light years from Earth, raising hopes of finding rocky worlds that could sustain life.

Astronomers didn't believe such a world could exist because they believed anything so large would grab hyd
The echoes of departed spirits often show up on camera when those in shot were unaware of their presence.

We all know that the sun is the greatest sustainable energy source available on Earth, but we're not quite at the stage where we're using it to the highest potential. The majority of PhotoVoltaic panels across the globe have a performance of just 15% or lower, and if these panels aren't tracking the movement of the sun in the sky, they are losing even more power throughout the year. Solar energy
A group of stormchasers captured some beautiful and terrifying footage of a supercell thunderstorm developing over Wyoming this weekend. As far as thunderstorms go, supercells are the least common, but they're responsible for most of the violent tornadoes in the U.S. In addition to extreme winds, they also dump torrential rain and hailstones that are bigger than golf balls -- causing flash
