Rising seas might mean more coral reef islands — if we don’t murder all the corals

We might get more ‘exotic’ if we dial down on the ‘extinction’.

NASA eavesdropped on the Sun, and they made a video so you can hear it too

With a bit of help from NASA, you can now hear the sun’s roar — and it’s glorious.

What is sound (and why it can topple buildings)

How it forms, how we hear it, and what it can do.

Powerful sound blasters can render tsunamis dead in the water, new study shows

Fus-ro-dah!

How caves form and the different types of caves

Shaped by erosion, fire, or water, caves have some surprising but always beautiful births.

Scientists measure internal waves under the ocean from ‘cradle to grave’; largest tops 500 meters

MIT researchers deployed intricate contraptions, including cables that run to the sea floor and an autonomous submarine, to measure internal weaves around the South China Sea. The researchers followed and measured these waves from their origin, until they dissipated, and in doing so have recorded the “largest waves documented in the global oceans.”

Gravity waves laid to dust: when scientists get way ahead of themselves

Nobel prizes, international press coverage, awards – these were all promises and cheers thrown about all over the web after a team of physicists trumpeted during a conference at Harvard that they’ve made one of the biggest discoveries in science: gravity waves. Some theories claim that these waves were generated brief moments following the Big Bang, and a team of researchers
