A metaphor of three roads diverging – or converging – underlies a group of words describing what really matters, and what doesn’t.
Oceans help stabilize a planet's temperatures, potentially making it more habitable, according to new research.
A survey of thousands of galaxies have found that so-called dwarf galaxies tend to orbit in flat discs around their larger counterparts.
The US manned mission to Mars, whenever that will be, will include a memento from the historic Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969.
A Christian Science perspective: Humanity yearns to know more of the infinite than our finite earth-bound perspective can give us.
