Some 64 million miles from the planet, NASA's Lucy probe got a deep space view of the recent total lunar eclipse. From her vantage point, it didn't look much like a " blood moon ," one of the many nicknames for the rare astronomical event. In a brief two-second time-lapse video, Lucy captured the Earth, on the left, and the moon, on the right. The tiny moon can be seen as a bright pinpoint of lig

Down Under Put that thing back where it came from or so help me! Actually, it could all turn out okay. Scientists in China have discovered previously unknown animal and plant species lurking at the bottom of a sinkhole in in Leye County, the Guardian reported yesterday.

Voyager 1 NASA Strange•
The Voyager 1 spacecraft is sending back some funky data from interstellar space that's leaving NASA engineers scratching their heads.
