National Park Service researchers discover two litters of mountain lion kittens in eastern Santa Susana Mountains

Recently, two litters of mountain lion kittens have been found by National Park Service researchers in the eastern Santa Susana Mountains. As a whole, five cubs, including three females and two males, were ear-tagged and have been sent to their respective dens previously this month.

The Santa Susanas is a huge mountain range, providing a vital habitat link between the Santa Monica Mountains to the south and Los Padres National Forest to the north.

Novel microscope shows corals kissing and competing with other species

In a research paper published in Nature Communications, scientists have unveiled about a new microscope that has helped them get up close and personal with coral and other sea life. The new microscope works under up to 100 feet of water.

Scientists from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California at San Diego said that the Benthic Underwater Microscope (BUM) is able to capture high-resolution images of objects around a tenth of the width of human hair.

Seemingly nondescript galaxy is actually behemoth cobbled together out of various cosmic spare parts: Study

A latest study suggested that an apparently nondescript galaxy was in really a behemoth cobbled together out of different cosmic spare parts. Lying around 250 million light-years from Earth, UGC 1382 had long been called an old, tiny and ordinary elliptical galaxy.

But latest observations have demonstrated that it's actually a spiral, which is 718,000 light-years broad and seven times bigger in comparison to the Milky Way of our own planet.

National Park Service finds Two Litters of Mountain Lion Kittens in California

Two litters of mountain lion kittens have been spotted in California’s Santa Susana Mountains, said the National Park Service officials in a statement. The blue-eyed kittens, born to two different mothers, have the same father, the officials added.

Last month, the National Park Service reported that its researchers saw five kittens in the Californian mountain range. The large transverse range of mountains is known for connecting mountain lions from Santa Monica Mountains and national forest Los Padres National Forest.

Astronomers find strong evidence of water clouds on body outside solar system, first time ever

Astronomers find strong evidence of water clouds on body outside solar system, first time ever

Astronomers have for the first time ever detected strong proof of water clouds on a body beyond the solar system. The researchers said that the latest observations of a frigid object known as WISE 0855, present 7.2 light-years from our planet, suggested that the ‘failed star’ has water clouds,or water ice, in its atmosphere.

Study explains What led to formation of Martian Moons

Not just Mars, but its moons, Phobos and Deimos, are also a long-standing mystery for astronomers. The oddly shaped natural satellites orbit their host planet farther away than previously thought. A question arises: how these two space rocks arrive there?

Some have a hunch that these Martian moons are actually asteroids from the Asteroid Belt, which lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Others believe both the natural satellites are results of Mars’ collision with a large object billions of years ago. The same scenario applies on our moon’s formation.

Sam Querrey prepares in between the rain to earn historic win against Djokovic

The match started on Friday night and ended on Saturday afternoon. Rain played spoilsport, lengthening the match. Sam Querrey looked trying to play mini-golf in the locker room during the stoppage time on Friday night. He did not even know he would create history next afternoon, finishing Novak Djokovic's dream of achieving calendar grand slam after a span of 47 years in the history of tennis. Sam Querrey later said, "I can play golf also.
