It wasn’t the Kraken. It wasn’t Godzilla. And it wasn’t even a rabid killer whale. The mysterious animal that had killed and eaten the 9-foot great white shark and had stumped scientists turned out to be a super predator feared by even apex predators like the great white shark. So what was it?
Scientists in Australia tagged a healthy 9-foot great white shark as part of program to track these animals. Four months later they found the tracking device washed up on a beach. Something—something really big—had eaten this apex predator. But what creature could dine on such ferocious prey?
Scientists have noticed something dramatic happening in the Solar System: Jupiter's famous Great Red Spot, the crimson monster storm that once was so large that it could eat three Earths, is mysteriously shrinking at high speed.

At last, NASA's scientists have revealed the mystery of the mysterious rock that materialized out of nowhere right in front of the Mars Curiosity rover—the infamous jelly doughnut rock rock that surprised everyone at mission control, prompting NASA Mars Exploration Rover lead scientist Steve Squyres to exclaim "wait a…
Left: a photo taken 3528 days after the Opportunity rover arrival to Mars. Right: the exact same spot 12 Mars days later. Notice the difference? NASA JPL scientists did too: "It's about the size of a jelly doughnut. It was a total surprise, we were like 'wait a second, that wasn't there before, it can't be right. Oh…
Bertha, the world's largest tunneling machine, has suddenly halted operations after encountering what the engineers say is "something unknown." They don't have a clue about what it is, but they know is gigantic. It's so mysterious that they call it "The Object."
What's Google hiding in their mysterious barges near San Francisco, Portland, and Maine, surrounded by chain-link fences and 24-hour armed guards? Why did they gag government officials with non-disclosure agreements? And how can a private company do that, anyway? The questions pile up.
Scientists are trying to solve a mystery on Mars: the weird appearance and disappearance of one of the signs of life in the universe. "There's some weird-ass chemistry happening on the Red Planet that we're just beginning to understand!" says io9's Robert Gonzalez.
When a Stanford University professor said the bizarre Atacama skeleton likely belonged to a human child between the ages of six and eight, it seemed crazy. How could this tiny, long-headed creature with less ribs than standard kids been inside a child of grade-school age? Today there's a more plausible explanation:…
