Planet hunters at NASA have found what they’re calling Earth’s “older, bigger cousin,” and believe it’s our strongest lead yet to finding advanced life somewhere else in the universe.

The new planet, Kepler 452b, is about 60% bigger than Earth, and orbits a sun similar to our own every 385 days.

That orbit puts it in what scientists call the “Goldilocks zone” — neither too hot, nor too cold, but just right for life.

And since the planet’s star has been around a billion years longer than ours, there’s been more time for life to take root and evolve.

“It’s awe-inspiring to consider that this planet has spent six billion years in the habitable zone of its star, longer than Earth,” J

For these pooches, their “wild” lifestyle could actually help save wildlife.

Shelter dogs with high-energy can sometimes be less adoptable than their more docile counterparts, but a program based in Washington, DC, has found a way to save them by putting their unique traits to good use.

By partnering with Working Dogs for Conservation and the International Fund for Animal Welfare, Rescues 2 the Rescue trains high-energy dogs to do scent-related jobs that support conservation work.

Trainers say the toy-obsessed, spirited pooches tend to thrive when trained to help locate difficult-to-find wildlife and plants, and can also help identify threats like poisons, and sniff out invasive pla

Argentinian legislator and human rights activist Victoria Donda Pérez attracted a lot of online attention after she breastfed her 8-month-old daughter Trilce during a parliamentary session earlier this month.

Infobae's Facebook post received over 3,700 likes and over 500 comments.

A 9-year-old girl with a big heart and nimble fingers raised $47,000 for a sick friend by selling rubber band bracelets on Facebook.

Bethany Walker wanted to help her friend, Anne Marie Cox, of Benton Arkansas, who needed a saltwater therapy pool to ease the skin condition epidermolysis bullosa.

“Any kind of friction or trauma to the skin causes the skin to blister and come off," Anne Marie's mother told ABC. "Being out in the summertime is just not going to happen." Public pools are off limits, too.

The family failed to raise enough money to build a pool. So Bethany decided to raise money by selling rubber band jewelry through a Facebook group called "Bracelets by Bethany."

A large drop in bluefish mercury levels suggest a healthier seafood supply – and that U.S. coal regulations are working.

Mercury levels in bluefish caught off the U.S. Atlantic coast have officially dropped 43% since 1972, according to a new study in Environmental Science & Technology.

Scientists say the drop is due to federal restrictions on coal emissions that have resulted in less mercury being transported by rainfall into the ocean.

Emissions from the top 100 U.S. electric power producers have decreased by 50 percent during 2000-2012, according to a Natural Resources Defense Council report

The lower mercury levels are promising for bluefish and other predatory fish like tuna
