If humans are going to live someplace other than Earth, the moon seems like a good option. It’s nearby and could serve as a launchpad for missions to other locations in the solar system. Scientists have long wondered if shadowy crevasses on the lunar surface could be entrances to caverns that could serve as a home for future colonists. New data from Japanese and US researchers indicates such caverns do exist.

A second new personalized treatment for cancer has won approval from the Food and Drug Administration — a clear sign that such treatments will become more widely available for patients with no other options.

Having grown up in Massachusetts, I love the idea of warmer winters. A winter where I will not have a $150 heating bill? A winter where I will not need to shovel for hours when it snows?

As the number of these cells declines naturally over time, or if their function is disrupted, the body’s organs and metabolic processes age faster and death occurs earlier

The reason grandparents get up at dawn and teenagers stay awake into the wee hours might be related to how ancient humans guarded their settlements, New Scientist reports. For 20 days, anthropologists monitored sleep patterns in the Hadza, hunter-gatherers who live in groups of about 30 individuals in modern-day Tanzania.

Delaware-sized iceberg splits from Antarctica

The major rift in the Larsen C ice shelf pictured in July 2017.

Climate change has a new poster child: a massive iceberg the size of Delaware -- one of the largest ever recorded – that early this week calved off Larsen C, the largest remaining ice shelf off the Antarctic Peninsula, scientists announced today. Although researchers cannot explicitly connect the calving event to warming air or water, those monitoring the event are now concerned that the entire shelf, after shedding more than 12% of its area, could follow the fate of its more northern peers, Larsen A and B, which collapsed entirely in 1995 and 2002, respectively.

Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are supposed to be dead, but Microsoft's emergency update to address serious vulnerabilities gives organizations another excuse to hang on to these legacy operating systems a little longer.

A team of archaeologists working in Boeslunde, Denmark, has found 2,000 spirals made of pure gold from the Bronze Age, their purpose and fabrication remain a true mystery for scholars.

Another discovery that forces us to rewrite history. The first humans arrived in North America through the Bering Strait 10,000 years earlier than previously thought, according to a new study by researchers from Canadian and British universities.
