Scientists have developed a new way of measuring the magnetic field of exoplanets, allowing astronomers to understand more about these far-away planets and possibly identify those outside our solar system that are habitable, according to new research.
You want to hear what a historic moment sounds like? Philae and the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft-und Raumfahrt; DLR) can provide.
An international team of researchers have brought attention to an unknown object in our Universe - a unique source of light at the edge of a galaxy some 90 million light-years away. Based off observational data, experts have theorized that this can be one of two incredibly unique things: either a giant black hole that was somehow exiled from the center of its own galaxy, or an incredibly massive star that is self-destructing.
With all the excitement of Rosetta and the Philae lander going on, we've nearly forgotten about our favorite Mars-roaming robot, the Curiosity Rover. Now Curiosity is calling in to let NASA techs know that it has taken a stroll around a mountain twice and now it's bored.
NASA has recently released a new and educational short films on the asteroid Bennu, a near-Earth space rock that the agency hopes to be collecting samples from by 2018. This mission is a precursor to a larger mission, where NASA will attempt to physically capture an asteroid and bring it into the moon's orbit for further study.
Volcanoes may have warmed Mars enough to harbor liquid water - but only for tens or hundreds of years at a time, according to a new study.
Hundreds of black holes are just waiting to be discovered as part of an upcoming LIGO mission, scientists say, a breakthrough study that may help to unlock the secrets of the Universe.
If you're not one to miss a meteor shower, you may want to rise before the Sun tomorrow morning. That's reportedly when the Leonid Meteor Shower will see its height of activity. However, we won't mislead you, the sky is not going to light up with countless shooting stars.
Neutrinos are like the ghosts of the particle world, carrying no charge and interacting with electrons and protons in only the faintest ways. Now a new study suggests that the great majority of high-energy neutrinos that can be found in the Milky Way Galaxy may be coming from the large black hole at its center, implying that black holes are actually neutrino factories.
Following the historic news that the European Space Agency's (ESA) Philae lander had successfully deployed from the Rosetta spacecraft to alight on the surface of a comet, it was revealed that technical difficulties had caused it to land in a far darker spot than intended, potentially ruining its chances at an extended mission. Now it has been discovered that the lander is doing better than anticipated, but is still in the dark.
New analyses of a primitive meteorite's magnetic fields, frozen within the space rock's grains, are helping to shed light on the solar system's birth and how it has evolved over time, a new study describes.
New data from the European Space Agency's (ESA) historic Philae landing on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko has revealed that the tiny craft didn't just touchdown, it bounced, skating the surface of the rotating comet to settle pretty far away from where experts had hoped it would land.
Things are shaking up on the normally boring, blue dot that is Uranus with a series of extreme storms on its surface, according to researchers.
If landers could dance, the Rosetta Spacecraft's Philae lander would be doing a touchdown boogie in the "end zone" of a massive comet right now. That's because the lander just made history as the first man-made craft to ever make a soft landing on the surface of a comet as it continues to hurtle through space.
