Scientists have determined that not only do asteroids retain a memory of their former magnetic fields but that they lasted far longer than previously thought which could have implications for life in the universe.

A drilling team has recently drilled deeper below Antarctic ice than ever before, down to the “grounding zone” where the glacier meets the land and the ocean. They expected to find a barren zone of dark, cold water, but to their surprise they found fish and crustaceans.

Astronomers have precisely determined the mass of a pulsar for the first time (right before the Pulsar completely disappeared from view). When astronomers found the binary system J1906 in 2006, they quickly realized they had something special. The objects rotating around each other were both compact, massive, and incredibly close. One partner was hard to
