(University of Utah) In a study published today in the Journal of Geophysical Research Solid Earth, scientists at the University of Utah report that small seismic signals in lakes can aid science. As a record of wave motion in a lake, they can reveal when a lake freezes over and when it thaws. Show More Summary

The Earth will be having a close call—astronomically speaking—when a 65-foot-wide asteroid buzzes past on Thursday, the Christian Science Monitor reports. According to AFP, asteroid 2012 TC4 will come within 27,000 miles of Earth—about one-eighth the distance between the Earth and moon and about 5,000...

Earth Science Week - Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam has proclaimed October 8 through October 14 Earth Science Week in Tennessee, which will promote the important role that geology and other earth sciences play in Tennessee’s safety,Show More Summary
Video. Keanu Reeves has done a bunch of science fiction movies in his career. Some are all-timers, such as The Matrix and Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Others really stink, such as Johnny Mnemonic and The Day the Earth Stood Still. Now he's back in that familiar genre with Replicas, and it feels like he might just have another one for the good column. More »
Topological insulators, materials that insulate on the inside but conduct electricity along their outer edges, have created quite a buzz in condensed matter physics. Now a new study in the journal Science shows that the same topological...Show More Summary
When it comes to science and the universe, Neil deGrasse Tyson knows his stuff. The American astrophysicist, author and science communicator has long since been a go-to figure for all things earth and space. Recently, Tyson joined with WIRED for a 10-minute Q&A where he answered some of the most pressing questions about the universe. […]
Harnessing the sun's energy with orbital space power stations and beaming the power to Earth has been a science fiction dream ever since Isaac Asimov wrote a 1941 short story called "Reason." But the idea has never quite gotten off the ground despite decades of intermittent interest and research for the United States and other countries. Show More Summary
CosmoQuest's Image Detective, a NASA-funded citizen science project, invites the public to identify Earth features in photographs taken by astronauts from the International Space Station (ISS).
NASA has changed the perspective of science, building satellites to study Earth's surface. Deep below that surface, where it's harder for satellites to see, is another story—but robotic technology might change that.
(University of Oxford) In a new study featured on the cover of the latest edition of Nature, researchers from the University of Oxford's Department of Earth Sciences untangle some of the processes involved in shaping the Earth. Revealing that the mini-planets added to Earth had previously undergone melting and evaporation. Show More Summary

A NASA-led team is designing an extremely compact origami rover for new extreme terrain applications in both the planetary and Earth science domains. PUFFERs (Pop-Up Flat Folding Explorer Robots) utilize a folding printed circuit board (PCB) as the rover chassis, which enables the platform to fold into a minuscule, palm-sized volume.
