Want to spot ‘Steve’ the aurora? Here’s how to do it

There’s a never-before-studied aurora gracing night skies around the world, and NASA wants you to try to spot it. The newfound aurora, named Steve (short for Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement), looks like a purple light with some green features.  Scientists think that Steve likely appears when charged plasma from the sun hits the Earth’s...CONTINUE READING

Another nor’easter is on its way and you’ve got to be f*cking kidding

The fourth coastal storm in three weeks to hammer the Eastern Seaboard appears likely to form early next week, potentially delivering yet another crippling snowstorm to millions from the Mid-Atlantic to New England. Unlike the previous storms, this one is going to form further to the south, putting the Washington, D.C. area, along with coastal...CONTINUE READING

Acidifying oceans could hit the very base of the ocean’s food web

The bedrock of the ocean’s food chain, on which whales, sharks, and octopi ultimately rely, are tiny bits of photosynthetic algae called diatoms. They come in thousands of shapes and are imperceptible to the human eye.  If their populations collapse or shrink, there could be dramatic reverberations throughout the vast marine food web. Scientists have...CONTINUE READING

It has spotted over 2,500 confirmed planets orbiting distant stars, and over 2,500 more possible worlds are waiting to be confirmed. Thirty of these confirmed planets live inside their host stars’ habitable zones, places where liquid water could exist...CONTINUE READING

Stephen Hawking’s fitting final role: How he literally became the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

If a flurry of news coverage is to be believed, a year in space can really wreak havoc on your DNA. According to some press reports this week, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly’s DNA changed by 7 percent because of the year he spent living above the planet on the International Space Station. Kelly himself even...CONTINUE READING
