Live Science is a science news website run by Future via Purch, which it purchased from Imaginova in 2009.[1] Stories and editorial commentary are typically syndicated to major news outlets, such as Yahoo!, MSNBC, AOL, and Fox News.[citation needed]

Live Science was originally launched in 2004, but was subsequently shut down and re-launched in 2007. Live Science covers scientific breakthroughs, research ventures and odd facts from around the world in an online newsmagazine format.[2] On its website in 2018, the categories for stories are "News - Tech - Health - Planet Earth - Strange News - Animals - History - Culture - Space".[3]

Purch consumer brands (including Live Science) were acquired by Future in 2018.[4][5]
