A Volcanic Eruption Hid A Critical Climate Signal For 20 Years

As our planet heats up, the pace of sea level rise is expected to quicken, making it harder for cities like Miami to stay above water.

Watch A Robot Possibly Discover Weird Stuff On The Ocean Floor

Space may be called the “final frontier” but what about unexplored areas that are on our very own Earth?

Video: Whoa. This aerial view, courtesy of a drone, captures something not often seen: a pod of false killer whales (which are a species of dolphins, of course) chasing and hunting down a shark in the waters near Sydney.
