A crowdfunding project to put a small, self-assembling red house on the Moon has begun, taking the dream of one Swedish artist a little closer to reality.
NASA missions in orbit have for the first time allowed scientists to observe the Moon's "dancing tide" swaying with Earth's gravitational pull.
Scientists recently discovered water in Moon rocks, and through chemical analysis they found that the amount of water in the Moon's rocky interior actually varies regionally - revealing clues about how water originated and was redistributed on the lunar surface.
The "joystick" assembly from the fourth manned US lunar landing was bought at a whopping $610,063 in an online auction. This sets an apparent new record for the most ever paid for a space-travel antique collectable.
Japanese company Otsuka Pharmaceuticals announced on Thursday that they plan to be the first to put a sports drink on the moon, sending a can of powdered Pocari Sweat along with the "dreams of children" to the moon by 2015.
Almost 600 items that have traveled to the Moon via NASA's Apollo space missions are being offered in RR Auction's Space & Aviation online sale, which begins Thursday and runs through May 22.
NASA astronauts Stan Love and Steve Bowen went underwater May 9 to test tools that will be used for a planned asteroid capture mission in the 2020s.
The Moon was once rocked by a violent collision that eventually led to the tilt in its present orientation, according to new research published in the journal Nature Geoscience.
A small, bus-sized asteroid passed within 186,000 miles (300,000 kilometers) of Earth - closer than the Moon - on Saturday morning, but posed no threat to our planet, Space.com reported.
The first ever mission to the Moon's south pole, likely to occur sometime in 2016, was announced Friday by the non-profit International Lunar Observatory (ILOA) and Moon Express, Inc., a privately funded "lunar resource company."
As lunar tourism becomes a thing of increasingly less distant future, members of the Congress are starting to worry about preserving the legacy of Apollo 11- the first human landing on the moon.
Despite the fact that no one has been to the moon in the past 40 years and the U.S. has no immediate plans to make a return visit anytime soon, two Democratic House members have proposed a bill to establish a national park on the moon.
Discovering molecular hydrogen on the Moon was a surprise result from NASA's Lunar Crater Observation Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) mission, which crash-landed the LCROSS satellite's spent Centaur rocket into the Cabeus crater in the permanently shadowed region of the Moon. Now, nearly four years later, scientists from the University of New Hamsphire and NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center believe they have discovered the reason behind the mysterious metamorphosis of the Moon's water ice.
Those willing to make the sacrifice of rising early this Sunday will be rewarded with the largest "supermoon" of 2013, though some argue it may not be worth it.
When scientists first made contact with the Moon, they found something they didn’t expect: every so often those early probes sent to scout landing sites for Apollo astronauts would suddenly begin plummeting toward the lunar surface before pulling back up, suggesting an uneven gravity.
