Astronomers just found an exoplanet shockingly similar to Earth

Astronomers just found an exoplanet shockingly similar to Earth

Earth, as far as any of us know, is the only planet that has all the right ingredients for life. When astronomers gaze out past our solar system in search of new worlds it’s impossible to know exactly what is happening on its surface. Still, by measuring everything that can be measured from afar, we can get a pretty good idea of just how habitable or hostile any given planet might be. Scientists using data gathered by NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope have stumbled upon a planet that checks a lot of the boxes we’d consider crucial in the search for extraterrestrial life. It’s called...

Amateur Astronomers May Have Spotted the Second Interstellar Object Ever Found

Amateur Astronomers May Have Spotted the Second Interstellar Object Ever Found

The astronomy community was buzzing in late 2017 after an object believed to have originated from outside our solar system was spotted speeding around the Sun and back out into interstellar space. Observations of the object sparked a debate among scientists who couldn’t decide whether it was a comet, an asteroid, or something else, but one thing was certain: Oumuamua, as the object was named, was not from our neck of the cosmic woods. Now, in an exciting development that began in amateur astronomy circles, another potential interstellar visitor has been identified, and scientists are...

Researchers find ancient ‘Hell Ant’ frozen in time, locked in battle

Researchers find ancient ‘Hell Ant’ frozen in time, locked in battle

There are a seemingly countless number of different ant species on Earth today. They range from mundane and unthreatening to incredibly aggressive and even potentially deadly. Nearly 100 million years ago, ants roamed the Earth just like they do today, and researchers just found a specimen of one species that reveals how appropriate its nickname “Hell Ant” really is. In a chunk of fossilized tree sap, called amber, a hell ant is seen locked in a battle with another ancient insect. Already known to science, the hell ant’s head is particularly unusual.
