When mysterious spacecrafts touch down across the globe, an elite team - lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) - is brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers – and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.

Planet That Collided With Early Earth Creating the Moon --"Caused It to Spin On Its Side"

New theoretical modeling of the ancient history of the Earth suggests that the giant collision that spawned our Moon may have left Earth spinning very fast, and with its spin axis highly tilted. “Despite smart people working on this problem for fifty years, we’re still discovering surprisingly basic things about the earliest history of our world,” says Matija Cuk a scientist at the SETI Institute and lead researcher for the simulations. “It’s quite humbling.”

Five years ago, the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to three astronomers for their discovery, in the late 1990s, that the universe is expanding at an accelerating pace. Their conclusions were based on analysis of Type Ia supernovae -- the spectacular thermonuclear explosion of dying stars -- picked up by the Hubble space telescope and large ground-based telescopes. It led to the widespread acceptance of the idea that the universe is dominated by a mysterious substance named 'dark energy' that drives this accelerating expansion.

"Life on the sea floor had totally collapsed, with up 90% of all species becoming extinct," says Dr Michal Zaton from the University of Silesia in Poland, and lead author on the international study of the Permian Period extinction. Less than 5 percent of the animal species in the seas survived. On land less than a third of the large animal species made it. Nearly all the trees died.

Film director's Werner Herzog's newest movie, Into The Inferno, is as much about the culture and ideas that surround volcanoes as it is about the science. His guide is Clive Oppenheimer, a genial, passionate scientist whom he met while filming in Antarctica, and who guides him around six active volcanoes, including into an active danger zone in Indonesia, where they keep their eyes on the cone at all times.

New studies are providing increasingly sensitive results, slowly shrinking the box of parameters where dark matter particles can hide. The failure to find them has led to renewed interest in studying how well primordial black holes -- black holes formed in the universe's first fraction of a second -- "could work as dark matter," according to Alexander Kashlinsky, an astrophysicist at NASA Goddard.
