In a fascinating first-of-its-kind study, researchers have discovered diets composed of ultra-processed foods lead to overeating and weight gain when compared to diets composed of unprocessed foods. Both diets contained the same amounts of nutrients such as sugars and fats, leading to a hypothesis suggesting something else in the ultra-processed food engendered overeating and weight gain..
A photographic search by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has discovered the crash site of the Israeli Beresheet moon lander. By making a series of comparison images, the hunt by the space agency and Arizona State University has confirmed the area where the privately operated unmanned spacecraft impacted the lunar surface on April 11, 2019, leaving behind a dark smudge...

Chilean architectural studio Alejandro Soffia has created an innovative family home built from a series of prefabricated modules. Dubbed Yellow House, the project was conceived to address the rapid demand for housing within growing populations, while also keeping sustainability and cost in mind. Located in the beautiful forest setting of Pucón, Chile, Yellow House is a giant treehouse-insp

Fifty years ago and a quarter of a million miles away, three astronauts carried out the dress rehearsal for one of the greatest events in human history. On May 18, 1969, Apollo 10 lifted off from Launch Complex 39B at the Kennedy Space Center.
