Data shows white sharks leave hunting grounds when orcas show up

Data shows white sharks leave hunting grounds when orcas show up

White sharks and orcas favorite prey is the same, both like to eat the elephant seal. Researchers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium and partner institutions have found that great white sharks may not be the most formidable predators in the ocean. The scientists found that when orcas confront white sharks, the sharks immediately leave the preferred hunting ground and may not return to the hunting ground for an entire year.

Scientists discover millions of previously hidden SoCal earthquakes

Scientists discover millions of previously hidden SoCal earthquakes

Scientists have gone through seismic data for Southern California, and by looking intensely at the data, they have discovered two million previously unidentified tiny earthquakes in Southern California that happened between 2008 and 2017. Caltech seismologists performed a detailed study of seismic data.

Green fireball spotted over US East Coast: Here are the videos

Green fireball spotted over US East Coast: Here are the videos

Earlier this week, many people along the East Coast of the United States reported seeing a fireball streaking through the night sky. The flaming object was only visible for a few seconds, but that was long enough for it to be captured by a number of dash cameras. Though reports of fireballs in the sky aren't uncommon, this week's event was notable for one reason: the flashing object appeared green.

SOFIA detects the first type of molecule ever formed in the universe

SOFIA detects the first type of molecule ever formed in the universe

NASA has announced an incredible discovery using the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, or SOFIA. It discovered the first type of molecule formed in the universe in space for the first time. SOFIA isn't a satellite or spacecraft, it's an instrument inside of an aircraft that flies high above the Earth's surface and points instruments into space.

TESS spacecraft discovered an Earth-sized planet 53 light-years away

NASA is bragging on the TESS (Transitioning Exoplanet Survey Satellite) spacecraft as it has discovered its very first Earth-sized world. TESS has found a planet dubbed HD 21749c that scientists say is about 89% of Earth's diameter making it a bit smaller than our planet. The planet orbits a star called HD 21749.

Watch these mice go bonkers in space

I demand that you watch what these mice do when they're sent in a cage to outer space, courtesy of NASA and a brand new study. This new study is aiming to gain insight from stying mouse adaptations to microgravity. If you've read the book Ender's Game, you probably already know what you're about to see.

Notre Dame Cathedral fire: This 3D scan dot may save all

Notre Dame Cathedral fire: This 3D scan dot may save all

Today we're having a peek at a full 3D-scan of the Notre Dame Cathedral interior as captured by Professor Andrew Tallon. If what we were doing back when we were looking at 3D ball cameras in 2016 seemed like nonsense - but who's laughing now, Janice? There's also a certain video game by the name of Assassin's Creed Unity that stands to take part in the cathedral's restoration - it's big!

Researchers 3D print first human heart with patient’s own biomaterial

Researchers 3D print first human heart with patient’s own biomaterial

Researchers from Tel Aviv University have made a significant breakthrough in medicine. The team has successfully 3D printed the world's first 3D vascularized heart using the patient's cells and biological materials. Using the patient's materials means the chance of organ rejection by the body is slim to none.

SpaceX Falcon Heavy center core stuck the landing before sliding into the abyss

SpaceX Falcon Heavy center core stuck the landing before sliding into the abyss

SpaceX has been very successful of late with pretty much everything it does. The company had a successful test of its Crew Dragon capsule not long ago that saw the capsule safely splashdown in the ocean. SpaceX has had great success with landing the reusable core sections of its Falcon rockets on a floating barge out in the ocean. Unfortunately, things didn't go well for the recent recovery of the Falcon Heavy center core.

The reason why the first-ever black hole photo was such a big deal

The reason why the first-ever black hole photo was such a big deal

During April 2017, the Event Horizon Telescope project turned eight satellites towards a point in space. Scientists were trying to take a photo that would confirm years of speculation and theorizing. They were taking a picture of the now famous black hole at the centre of the Virgo A galaxy Messier 87.

Beresheet 2.0: Another Israel moon landing attempt underway

Beresheet 2.0: Another Israel moon landing attempt underway

Getting so very close to being the first successful landing of an Israeli spacecraft on our Moon meant Israel MUST try again. As such, the team at SpaceIL announced this weekend that they would indeed be making another attempt. The possibility that they'd get back up and running so soon was made possible in part by the Lunar XPRIZE Foundation.
