The magnetic field last flipped 795,000 years ago in an event called the Matuyama-Brunhes reversal.
When exactly plate tectonics emerged and how it has evolved through time are two of the most significant and hotly debated questions in Earth sciences today.
The space rock will come within around 4.6 million miles of our planet, traveling at speeds of 10,400 miles per hour.
All three of the space rocks are classified as Near-Earth Objects (NEOs)—a term which refers to any asteroid or comet whose orbit takes it within 121 million miles of the sun.
The group warned Trump that multiple historical empires have taken the dream of victory in Afghanistan "to the grave."
On this day, half a century ago, astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins took off aboard a Saturn V rocket from Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida, headed for the moon.
Full moons are an astronomical phenomenon which occur around once a month, when the Earth is positioned between the sun and the moon.
Titan, Saturn's largest moon, is covered in lakes filled with liquid hydrocarbons, such as methane and ethane.
The Teegarden star—a red dwarf with a mass less than a tenth that of the sun—is located just 12.5 light-years away in the constellation Aries.
The June solstice marks the day of the year in the northern hemisphere with the most sunlight hours and shortest night.
The full moon on Sunday will also coincide with Jupiter appearing particularly bright and large in the night sky.
The ocean is thought to be be billions of years old and may contain as much as three times the volume of all the liquid water on Earth.
It was once thought that only young and active stars produced these explosive events, but according to a new study, our 4.6-billion-year-old sun also has the capacity.
Build-ups of toxic gases in the atmospheres of many exoplanets in the "habitable zone" could limit the "safe zone" in which life outside our solar system could actually exist.
At its closest, the planet's orbit will take it within around 398 million miles of Earth on June 12.
The planet is the first of its kind to be discovered in the "Neptunian Desert"—the region immediately surrounding stars where no planets similar in size to Neptune are found.
The object will come within about 3 million miles of our planet.
"The formation of the moon and the origin of Earth's water are two of the fundamental open questions in cosmo-chemistry," said the lead author of a new study.
It's long been unclear how whether glowing auroras will shift in line with the pole.
Scientists have long been puzzled by the asymmetrical nature of the moon's two hemispheres.
The aim of the ambitious Starlink project is to provide global internet coverage with low lag times by launching around 12,000 satellites into low-Earth orbit.
At the end of the last glacial era, carbon gases trapped on the seafloor escaped, causing drastic warming that helped end the last ice age. A scientist says climate change could cause this process to repeat.
Apohis is set to whiz past Earth at a distance of 19,000 miles in 2029.
Growing evidence suggests that the extinction of the dinosaurs involved profound, complex and interconnected changes to the global systems that support life. Much like we are facing today.
"The rise of flat-Earthers in the United States is evidence of two things: 1) the protection of speech, and 2) the failure of our educational system."
The last time that a full moon and the spring equinox fell on the same day was March 20, 1981.
"Eventually, if people stop having children, guess what, none of us are going to be here," 'Fox and Friends' co-host Jillian Mele said. "Like, there's not even going to be Earth anymore."
After 50 years of theoretical predictions, we've managed to demonstrate how the magnetic field bangs like a drum.
