China’s space station may re-enter the Earth like a huge fireball

China’s space station may re-enter the Earth like a huge fireball

China reportedly lost contact with its space station and expect that it may rush toward the Earth looking like a fiery ball of hot metal. Tiangong-1 space station was launched into space in 2011 and is likely to return to our planet in controlled crash in the ocean. However, there lingers fear; if the crash goes uncontrolled, it could cause damage to inhabited areas.

Bangladesh could Experience Catastrophic Earthquake

Bangladesh could Experience Catastrophic Earthquake

Researchers of a new study suggested possibility for a catastrophic earthquake to originate from underneath the country of Bangladesh. However, it is not clear when such a disastrous event will take place. The earthquake would result from a massive hidden fault buried under miles of river sediment.

Stunning Storm recorded from 37,000 feet above Pacific Ocean

Stunning Storm recorded from 37,000 feet above Pacific Ocean

Last month, pilot Santiago Borja clicked a striking picture of lightning flashes revealing a huge storm high over the Pacific Ocean. Borja captured an isolated cloud amid a threatening thunderstorm being at an altitude of 37,000 feet while travelling from New York to Guayaquil, Ecuador.

While speaking to NBC News, Borja said that it isn’t very common to get the luck of flying by this big distant storm. He said that generally they are surrounded by clouds making it impossible to be noticed, and the radar has to be used.

Distant supernova explosion probably contributed to minor mass extinction on Earth 2.59 million years ago

Distant supernova explosion probably contributed to minor mass extinction on Earth 2.59 million years ago

A latest study suggested that a distant supernova explosion could have been a contributor in a minor mass extinction on our planet 2.59 million years back. Researchers said that fast-moving, charged particles known as cosmic rays blasted out by a supernova probably played a part in the climatic changes that seems to have caused a die-off by the Pliocene epoch end and the beginning of the Pleistocene.

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.

Stone tools were first Used by Capuchin monkeys to crack open cashew nuts

Stone tools were first Used by Capuchin monkeys to crack open cashew nuts

Barring a variety of hard-shelled fruits and seeds, the semi-arid region of northeast Brazil has little to offer for a monkey to eat. As such when ancient bearded capuchins arrived in this region about half a million years ago when, they needed to devise a method to access the only food available to them.

Scientists say one capuchin may have accidentally cracked open cashew nuts with the help of a rock. In the process, he or she may have made monkey history by opening up a brand-new habitat for the species.
