Two planes carrying skydivers had a midair collision last night over northwest Wisconsin near Lake Superior. But everyone survived because they were planning to skydive out anyway. Additionally, one pilot was able to eject and the other landed his plane safely, even though it was severely damaged.
Two Metro-North Railroad trains collided during rush hour in Connecticut last night, injuring 60 people, 5 of them critically.
The International Space Station is executing an evasive maneuver in a few hours, following the protocol for when there's more than a one in 10,000 chance of a space collision.
Check out this video made with images created by NASA. It shows Earth's night sky during the next four billion years, with the Milky Way on a head-on collision with Andromeda. The destruction of our galaxy as we know it will be so beautiful.
The two sides of the Moon look nothing like each other: the near side is flat and low, while the far side is incredibly mountainous. We may now be able to solve this topographical mystery...and it involves a second moon.
Some scientists are starting to believe that our moon is actually the result of a mid-air space collision of two moons. They say that the two-moon theory could explain why each side of the moon is so different from the other.
Two mighty galaxies far away are smashing into each other, as vast trails of gas and dust mix and merge into what will ultimately be a single galaxy. And the fury of the Antennae extends far from the collision itself.
Take that, bread-dropping bird. Despite numerous delays and the suggestion that the Large Hadron Collider is being sabotaged from the future, the LHC is up and running. And, for the very first time, it has collided two proton beams.
How could two submarines end up colliding in the middle of the ocean? British military types are blaming excessive stealthiness, and the French claim they didn't realize what had happened for days.
First Satellites colliding, now this. Two nuclear submarines carrying nuclear missiles, the British HMS Vanguard—in the image—and the French Le Triomphan, bumped in the Atlantic this February.
The Large Hadron Collider at the CERN research facility near Geneva, Switzerland won't be going on a luau in Hawaii anytime soon, since the state is suing to stop the activation of the enormous research project. Yes, it's not just individual wackos who believe the LHC will unleash a cosmic ass-whooping on the planet.…
