Large Hadron Collider replacement plans unveiled – here’s what it could discover

For the first time astronomers believe they have spotted a 'star swallowing' event. In February 2017, the All Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae discovered the dramatic change, an event known as AT 2017bgt.

How supermassive black holes get so big: Researchers spot unprecedented ‘star swallowing frenzy’

A team of researchers — which includes 45 scientists, drillers and other staff members — with the organization were able to send an instrument down a borehole the next day.

Scientists finally drill into mysterious Antarctic lake ‘twice the size of Manhattan’ buried under 3,500 feet of ice in bid to find if life exists there.

The Neskowin Ghost Forest on the Oregon coast is evidence of significant, rapid change in the coastline, likely due to the 1700 Cascadia earthquake.

A strange, low-intensity hum near Vancouver Island may help predict when the next killer earthquake will strike.

NASA's New Horizons spacecraft will make a close flyby of the Kuiper Belt object Ultima Thule, shown here in an artist's illustration, on Jan. 1, 2019.

NASA to Make Historic New Year’s Day Flyby of Mysterious Ultima Thule. Here’s What to Expect.

Fabio Pacucci revealed a huge black hole could swallow Earth.

Billion-mile-wide supermassive black hole poised to swallow Earth whole, scientist warns.

Doggerland, a plateau of land between England and the Netherlands, was once full of life before it sank beneath what is now the North Sea roughly 8,000 years ago. Archaeologists now hope to find out what the vast landscape looked like before it slipped beneath the water so long ago.

Thriving plateau region that slipped beneath North Sea 8,000 years ago reveals its secrets.

The system, comprising a pair of luminous stars, was nicknamed Apep by researchers after the serpentine Egyptian god of chaos (pictured). One of the pair is the first known candidate in the Milky Way to produce mysterious gamma-ray bursts - GRBs.

Two stars in the Milky Way shrouded in galactic space dust are spinning so quickly it has created a ‘cosmic serpent’ that could explode in a spectacular celestial firework display.

The cannibalism of W2256 which is 12.4 billion light years away fuels the large galaxy and has allowed it to become the brightest one ever seen by scientists as it emits 350 times more light that our sun (artist's impression).

Cannibal ‘Hotdog’ galaxy as bright as 350 TRILLION stars stole mass from three smaller neighbours to feed a supermassive black hole at its centre.
