A section of metal debris was recently found near the United Kingdom's southwestern coast, and it bears what looks like an American flag. It was covered with barnacles.
After Mars' larger moon Phobos is shattered by gravity, Mars will likely have an all-new appearance.
James Sullivan talks here about the Comet 67P and the gaseous oxygen (unusual) and other findings on it that have learnings for us regarding the beginning of life on our planet.
Astronomers recently discovered that one dim and cool dwarf star is not just being still out there in space -- it is heavily magnetic, just as much so as some parts of our Sun. If we were located next to this star, we'd have no satellite communications.
At the first annual Space Commerce Conference and Exposition, the NASA Administrator talked about the stronger role private companies will have in allowing NASA to focus on certain goals, including humans going to Mars.
Researchers recently disclosed how it is for the Earth-like planet Kepler-438b, which is likely having its atmosphere stripped away by its violent parent star.
If all goes well, after New Year's the researchers on the International Space Station may find themselves amid a lot of zinnias, the bright garden flower. These will provide learnings for growing blooming plants in space, and tomatoes might be next.
Recently analyzed lava samples suggest water was present when the planets were just beginning to form.
The Cassini spacecraft recently picked up more information about Saturn's moon Titan's 7 1/2 year winter.
A new, rocky planet with a scorching temperature but many interesting characteristics has been discovered right around the corner, galactically speaking, say MIT and Harvard astrophysicists who detected it using robotic telescopes in the mountains of Chile.
A new study by University of Cambridge and The Australian National University has found what are believed to be the oldest known stars. These luminous but ancient balls of gas bring into question our earlier ideas about how the galaxy formed.
New research from NASA yields information on what's causing the grooves in the surface of Mars' moon Phobos.
The Mars orbiter called MAVEN has newly revealed data: The speed of the solar wind around Mars and how it has transformed the climate of the red planet.
If you've always wanted to wear that space suit and try out the espresso machine in the international space station, or (merely) to contribute to research about the Red Planet, now's your chance to get that application in on time.
Fireworks and bonfires may be a fun way to celebrate national holidays, but the smoke and other particles emitted into the atmosphere can reduce visibility by 25 percent. Visibility can be further reduced when humidity is high and particles absorb more moisture.
