Scientists have just confirmed what's been believed for over a decade—there's water on the Moon. Specifically, thanks to observations by NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), traces of water have been found on the sunny side of the Moon.

If you thought that humans had stopped evolving, think again. Researchers in Australia have just published a study proving that humans are continuing to change.

Have you ever seen someone's face in passing, then recognized that same person years later? If so, you may be a “super-recognizer.” Researcher Dr. Josh P. Davis at the University of Greenwich has developed a quick and free online test to identify people who are exceptionally good at human facial recognition. While many may be good or even great at recognizing others, Davis hypothesizes super-recognizers account for less than one percent of the population.
