It's been ten years since Hurricane Katrina made landfall in the western US. Now NASA and the US Geological Survey (USGS) have released detailed maps showing how radically the hurricane changed not only neighbor- and livelihoods, but also the geography of New Orleans itself.
The Hubble Space Telescope recently captured detailed images of Twin Jet Nebula, which has recently ejected its outer layers, and illuminated them, signifying it is in its final stages of life.
Astronomers recently discovered two supermassive black holes in the quasar known as Markarian 231, using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. This suggests that these massive black holes form from violent mergers.
A planetary scientist explains that, with some adaptations, life-forms similar to Earth's could live on other planets' environments as well.
The historic spacecraft Rosetta and its comet host are closer to the Sun than ever before, and that means one thing: breathtaking photos
It looks like they may need to start building an aviary in space. A Kounotori, which translates from Japanese to "white stork," is currently escorting a flock of fourteen Doves to the International Space Station.
The largest of planets may have formed very differently from what we've thought all along.
Power grids at the equator may not be as safe as previously thought.
Near the Milky Way, 30 million light years from Earth, a comprehensive survey from an Australia-based telescope has turned up bright collisions of stars and learning potential.
With nitrogen ice moving around Pluto, and nitrogen gas flying into the small planet's atmosphere daily, researchers have new learnings on what supplies all the nitrogen.
A new planet has been detected by the Gemini Planet Imager, and it is like a younger form of Jupiter, researchers say.
Analysis of some Hubble Space Telescope images has added to research on how cosmic winds prevent stars from being born, and which areas might produce fewer stars after this.
The planet, found with its two stars in a "habitable zone," is a gassy giant and cannot support life. But it might have rocky moons that could.
What next, land-speed events on an ancient salt flat on Mars? Or more research?
It is no secret that more experts than you can count have turned their attention to the stars, searching for planets that would support Earth-like life. The recent discovery of Kepler 452b, the most Earth-like exoplanet ever found, has even sparked a great deal of public interest. However, it's still unclear if any discovery could actually support life. Now a pair of researchers are claiming to have identified a new way to ensure a little more certainty in this exciting hunt.
