One of the largest asteroids in our solar system - Vesta - may once have had flowing water which formed gullies and other erosion features on its surface, according to data from NASA's Dawn spacecraft.
In an alarming revelation, NASA has confirmed that the snow on sea ice in the Arctic has thinned significantly in the last 50 years - by about a third in the western hemisphere and by half near Alaska.
