Our Milky Way Galaxy's closest major galactic neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy, certainly has a familiar shape to astronomers and stargazers. But these views of M31 in different wavelenghts are just adding charme to our closest island universe

All objects, big or small, cast shadows and so do mountains. However, one particular peak displays a peculiar behavior – it cast shadows not only on the ground, but also up in the clouds

Scientists discovered broadcasting the sound of a healthy coral reef on underwater speakers in dead areas along the Great Barrier Reef resulted in life returning and thriving. Twice as many fish visited those areas with speakers vs spots without speakers

Hungarian physicists think they've discovered a 5th fundamental force of nature, adding to gravity, electromagnetism, and the weak and strong nuclear forces. https://pst.cr/DdegU

A brainless, single-celled organism called slime mold, which has a knack for finding food, is helping astronomers map the largest, most mysterious structure in the universe: the dark-matter-filled cosmic web. https://pst.cr/qD3Sd

What is PSR J1748–2446’s claim to weirdness fame? Simple. It’s the universe’s fastest-spinning celestial object. https://pst.cr/Zwm2e

Researchers thought Mars formed — and potentially created a life-supporting atmosphere — like Earth did. New evidence suggests that's not the case. https://pst.cr/NRR1d
