  1. 100-Foot Asteroid to Buzz Earth Next MonthRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday | LiveScience

    An asteroid as long as a basketball court will give Earth a close shave next month - though scientists aren't sure just how close. The near-Earth asteroid 2013 TX68 , which is thought to be about 100 feet in diameter, will zoom past our planet on March 5. The space rock could come as close as 11,000 miles - less than 5 percent of the distance from Earth to the moon - or stay up to 9 million miles away during the flyby, NASA officials said.

    Tuesday Jan 26 | Live Science

    Artist's illustration of "Planet Nine," a hypothesized world about 10 times more massive than Earth that may orbit far beyond Pluto. Some scientists have suggested that a big undiscovered body lying on the far outer reaches of the solar system could be responsible for many of the mass extinction events throughout Earth's history, by shaking up the distant comet repository known as the Oort Cloud and sending some its denizens screaming toward our planet.

  6. Metal 'Snow' May Power Earth's Magnetic FieldRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Jan 20 | LiveScience

    The power source for Earth's magnetic field may be magnesium that has been trapped in the core since our planet's violent birth, a new model suggests. Magnesium is the fourth most common element in the Earth's outer layers, but previously, scientists thought there was almost no magnesium in the core.


  7. 'Spooky' Halloween Asteroid May Actually Be a CometRead the original story w/Photo

    The roughly 1,300-foot-wide asteroid 2015 TB145 , which some astronomers have dubbed "Spooky," will cruise within 300,000 miles of Earth on Halloween - just 1.3 times the average distance between our planet and the moon. Though 2015 TB145 poses no threat on this pass, the flyby will mark the closest encounter with such a big space rock until August 2027, when the 2,600-foot-wide 1999 AN10 comes within 1 Earth-moon distance , NASA officials said.

    The consequences of global sea level rise could be even scarier than the worst-case scenarios predicted by the dominant climate models, which don't fully account for the fast breakup of ice sheets and glaciers, NASA scientists said today at a press briefing. What's more, sea level rise is already occurring.
