The zodiac star signs were created some 2,000 years ago, according to what Minnesota Planetarium Society board member Parke Kunkle told the Chicago Sun Times on Friday. However, the star signs that most people associate themselves with based on their birthdays may be inaccurate, thanks to the moon's gravitational...

First results from a new NASA-funded scientific instrument at the W. M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii are helping scientists overturn long-standing assumptions about powerful explosions called novae and have produced the first unified model for a nearby nova called RS Ophiuchi. "We were getting ready for a routine engineering run when all of a sudden the nova went off. It was very bright and easy to observe, so we took this opportunity and turned it into gold," says team member Marc Kuchner of...
