Evolution is the generally-accepted explanation for how life on Earth became so complex, but there's one thing it can't explain – how life emerged from non-living matter in the first place. The prevailing hypothesis is that life got started in the ocean, where hydrothermal vents provided just the right chemical reactions. But a new MIT study has found that ancient oceans probably didn't ha
It takes millions of years for life to fully recover from a catastrophic extinction event, according to a new study that examined the aftermath of the asteroid strike that wiped out all non-avian dinosaurs 66 million years ago. The study sheds light on an apparent speed limit to recovery in the wake of a mass extinction, and could help us understand how long it could take life to rebound f
'earth from above' is karen jerzyk's first stab at drone photography -- a genre often reserved for landscape photography and b-roll -- which she has reverse-engineered to capturing whimsical masterpieces from surreal sketches.

Earth's pleasant, life-giving atmosphere is turning out to be somewhat of an oddity. With almost 4,000 planets so far discovered orbiting stars beyond our solar system, scientists are finding that atmospheres come in a wide range of recipes. To get a better understanding of that cosmic chemistry, a team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has recreated one of these alien atmospheres

Philadelphia-based photographer Bruce W. Berry Jr. took recent photos and videos captured from the International Space Station (ISS) and edited them into this gorgeous 6-minute short film that takes viewers on a journey around the world.Berry gathered time-lapse sequences and 4K footage captured by NASA and ESA astronauts on the ISS and then edited, color graded, denoised, deflickered, and stabil
Human activities on Earth generally have negative outcomes on the environment – we're pouring plastic into the oceans and melting the ice caps at alarming rates. But it's not all bad news. A new study of satellite data has shown that the Earth has gotten "greener" in the last 20 years or so, with the biggest contributors being China and India. Before we celebrate though, there are a few ca
