The Brooklyn Nets scored 111 points in their Game 7 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday, but not one of those points came from the bench. It was an appropriate ending to an injury-plagued season.

In fact, conceiving of a universe without dark matter would seem nearly impossible and yet the Hubble Telescope has spotted yet another such galaxy: (UDG) NGC1052-DF2 (DF2).

New Technique Enables Quick Identification of Potential Drugs to Fight Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria

Researchers from the Miami University in Ohio have optimized a new technique that will allow scientists to evaluate how potential inhibitors work on antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Jake Paul reacts after Anderson Silva emerges victorious in boxing match with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul reacted after Anderson Silva emerged victorious in his boxing match with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. The 46-year-old Silva defeated Chavez Jr. by split decision on Saturday night in his first boxing match since 2006. It was an impressive showing by “The Spider,” who showed that he still has the reflexes and punching skills this late into his combat sports career. It was a big win for Silva, who by beating Chavez Jr. could potentially set himself up for other big paydays in the world of boxing going forward. Even during his UFC run, Silva made no secret of his desire to step back into the boxing ring, and now that he’s a free agent and able to fight anywhere in the world, there will likely be more suitors for him going forward.
