Scientists want to find cracks in the standard model of particle physics. But even with strange new discoveries, it's proving to be a slippery task ...
Smashing protons together in search of strange particles, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva say they’ve discovered signs of particle decays that have long been predicted, but have never before been seen.

MESSENGER will meet its doom in about two minutes ...
NASA’s Messenger spacecraft is about to end its mission with a bang. After spending more than four years and 4,100 orbits circling the closest planet to the sun, the satellite will crash into Mercury’s crater-pocked surface April 30.

Who'da thunk it?
Tasting the air and testing the temperature, NASA ’s Mars rover Curiosity has shown that there could potentially be salty water currently beneath the Red Planet’s surface.

Some of these deposits look like ice cream sandwiches, according to one scientist's son.
Climbing up Mt. Sharp in the middle of Gale Crater, NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has discovered a two-tone vein of minerals that reveal multiple episodes of water flowing through rock — even after the lake that once filled the bottom of the crater had ceased to be.

Mars once had an ocean that covered a larger share of the planet than the Atlantic Ocean does on Earth, scientists say
Dry, dusty Mars once had an ocean that held as much water as the Arctic Ocean and covered a larger share of the Red Planet’s surface than the Atlantic Ocean does on Earth, according to a surprising new study.

Add another relative to the family tree ...
Deep in hydrothermal vents beneath the Arctic Ocean, scientists have discovered an organism that sheds fresh light on the evolutionary link between simple and complex cellular life.

This is one REALLY weird dinosaur.
A new dinosaur fossil from China has thrown paleontologists for a loop. The strange dinosaur has bony wing-like features that are wildly different from those of its close flying relatives and instead look more like those of a flying squirrel or a bat.

The same phenomenon happening in our oceans today (albeit on a smaller scale) was responsible for the worst extinction event in Earth's history, scientists say.
Ocean acidification triggered by massive volcanic eruptions helped cause the worst mass extinction in the history of life on Earth, according to a new study.

This is the Bullet Cluster, a beautiful collision of two giant galaxy clusters. But it's what you can't see that's most interesting ...
Dark matter just got a shade more mysterious. Scientists studying a smashup between giant clusters of galaxies have watched how each cluster’s dark matter passes through the collision – and found that it seems to contradict certain theories of how dark matter behaves.
