Last month, we told you a cool story about an ancient Tibetan statue carved from a meteorite and its eventual arrival in Nazi Germany after a mysterious German expedition. Well, it seems that story just got a bit less cool, because according to one expert, while it may be made from a meteorite, the statue's likely not as ancient as we thought.
We've been chomping at the bit to see the Science channel's new Firefly special, and now we finally have our first look at the epic reunion filmed earlier this year at San Diego Comic-Com.
There was a time, centuries ago, when people poured lifetimes of research and hard work into attempting to create gold. This "science," known as alchemy, has long been discredited, but two Michigan State University professors, using a "Superman" bacteria and a little time, have just managed to make it a real thing.
We usually think of asteroids as things we'd like to keep away from the Earth, but people keep coming up with ways we can use them. First there was that whole mining operation plan, and now researchers are theorizing that we could use asteroids to slow down or even stop climate change on Earth. But how?

A new study claims that a unique Buddhist statue nabbed by Nazis in the '30s came from space ... kinda.
It may be the stuff of Star Trek and Stargate SG-1, but scientists think they've figured out how to vaporize a planet. Earth, you'd better watch out.
Though it's been theorized for nearly a century, dark matter is better known to many as the stuff of science fiction, not actual science. But researchers continue to work to change that, and now a group of astrophysicists think they've found the strongest evidence yet that dark matter is real.
Eight years ago, Sun Jifa was the victim of a homemade bomb explosion that cost him both his arms. After nearly a decade of tinkering, Jifa has a new set of steel arms that let him live life normally, almost.
Galaxies are huge. Our solar system is huge, but our sun is just one of 200 billion stars nestled in our Milky Way Galaxy. That's a lot of space, but scientists have just found a new galaxy cluster that not only dwarfs the Milky Way, but produces new stars at a staggering rate.
Our culture's love of horror is well-documented and seemingly endless. We love horror movies, horror shows, horror books, horror comics. We even love horror cakes. We don't often stop and wonder why, but according to a new theory, our love of being terrified is simply embedded in our DNA.
