In a cosmic first, researchers have observed the most powerful and luminous yet known energy release -- a trillion times more energetic than visible light -- in the brightest type of electromagnetic events known to occur in the universe called gamma-ray bursts (GRBs).
Leading experts from the UK and Indian universities have launched the world's largest study on babies with brain injuries in India this week to help prevent epilepsy.

As scientists scramble to determine whether there is life on Mars, a researcher from Ohio University in US believes that there is evidence of insect-like creatures on the red planet.
This year is increasingly likely to be the planet's second- or third-warmest calendar year on record since modern temperature data collection began in 1880, according to data released this week by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
