ESA' Rosetta comet hunter mission officially ended last Sept. 30. The agency recently released the final data collected by the spacecraft including photos of the comet during Rosetta's descent.
A team of scientists has identified the first-ever evidence of a comet colliding with planet Earth about 56 millions of years ago, suggesting that the catastrophic event could have lead to an abrupt warming period or Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) on Earth.
A group of scientists are preparing for the launch of first SPACE NATION named "Asgardia" that will soon be flying in a low-orbit satellite on Earth next year.
Europe’s Rosetta spacecraft will go out with a bang – or rather, a crash – on the surface of a comet it has followed faithfully for two years.
A comet plummeted into the Sun causing it to be vaporized and destroyed.
This year's Perseid meteor shower is expected to yield twice its normal rate from 50 to 70 meteors per hour to 150 to 200.
Planets Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, accompanied by some of their moons, will be visible in the night sky starting June 1. The celestial show is attributed to the proximity of the planets to Earth.
A new study suggests that asteroids crashing in the young moon 4.5 billion years ago delivered water in the Earth's natural satellite.
Scientists have previously discovered that most of the molecular building blocks of life, organic compounds that can be assembled to protein, RNA and DNA, can be found in comets, interstellar dust and asteroid.
Scientists have recently discovered that the Moon is engulfed in a permanent, lopsided dust cloud that could affect future space travel, a new study says.
Scientists have long wondered how our Blue Planet came to be covered by 70 percent water. Now a new study offers fresh evidence for how water reached Earth, finding that asteroids and comets are likely rich in water.
