Wild dogs responsible for many Australian koala deaths

Koala Australia
Statistics released by the Department of Main Roads and Transport revealed that wild dogs have been responsible for many koala deaths. The statistics portray a grim picture of the planning process around the relocation of the koala population.

Wine-producing device invented by scientists produces non-stop wine

Researchers have developed a miniature device that may be capable of producing an endless supply of wine with the help of strategically-placed yeast and fermenting plane old grape juice. American and Swiss scientists are currently trialling the micro winery that can turn grape juice into alcoholic wine in just an hour. Conventional winemakers sometimes take weeks to produce the alcoholic wine.

Newly-discovered planet with 3 suns in faraway solar system

An international team of scientists have recently discovered a strange planet in a faraway solar system that has not one but three suns. The planet, named HD 131399Ab, is way weirder than Luke Skywalker’s home planet Tatooine in the Star Wars saga that orbited around two suns.

Titan may host non-water-based life

NASA's Huygens and Cassini missions have revealed that Saturn’s moon Titan may support non-water-based life. The missions provided invaluable data on chemical elements found on Titan, and Cornell scientists have been able to find a chemical trail that suggests that prebiotic conditions may exist there.
Sun

Sun has gone totally spotless and that's bad news for Earth

Climate experts have predicted that the Earth may be heading towards a mini Ice Age as the face of the sun has “gone blank.” Experts analysed the solar surface that is currently exhibiting a distinct lack of action. If this happens, it might be similar to the “Game of Thrones” catchphrase: “Winter is Coming.”

Rare meteorite on Earth points towards Mercury's origins

MIT geologists have studied part of planet Mercury’s cooling history right after it formed between 4.2-3.7 billion years ago and traced its origins to an enstatite chondrite, a rare meteorite. This kind of meteorite is extremely rare on Earth.
Gravitational Waves

Gravitational waves in space may reveal how supermassive black holes formed

Scientists led by Durham University's Institute for Computational Cosmology captured gravitational waves via space-based detectors, and now they believe that these waves can help identify the origins of supermassive black holes. The scientist ran massive cosmological simulations that may be used to predict the rate at which gravitational waves caused by collisions between the monster black holes might be detected.
