On Friday, NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) have successfully reaped their first harvest which was none other than red romaine lettuce leaves.

A massive rift in the Antarctica has been spotted by NASA, but the troubling details about the rift is causing the agency to worry. The ice shelf in Larsen C that is close to breaking off is as big as the size of Delaware.
NASA is currently studying a new type of material ideal for space robotic systems called Bulk Metallic Glass (BMG).
A recent study suggests that Pluto’s “icy heart” may have been formed earlier in Pluto’s history and that its features are caused by evolutionary processes.
Blue clouds, also known as night-shining clouds or Noctilucent clouds, are a normal occurrence that happens during late November or early December, particularly in Antarctica. Yet, surprisingly, the appearance of these blue clouds came a bit early. According to NASA, this is a new phenomenon.
Scientists have been trying to figure out the age of the universe and have come to the conclusion that the Earth is aging. On top of that, it has been recorded from observations of different galaxies that the universe may be starting to die.
Cassini is running out of fuel and is near the end of its mission. But before it plunges to its death, it will first complete a series of ring dives that started last Nov. 30.
A NASA radio aboard Europe’s Mars orbiter has aced its first relay test. Data was transmitted to the radio from NASA’s Opportunity and Curiosity rovers and was successfully relayed to Earth.
In hopes of understanding the marine environments of the Earth, scientists make use of underwater drones. This same method is also being used by scientists working at NASA, but the difference is that they are developing an “intelligent” kind which would help them study Jupiter’s moon, Europa.
Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon was airlifted from the South Pole after his sickness worsened upon arriving in Antarctica.
NASA recently confirmed the development a communication device that combines two proven technologies -- NASA's Spacecube and the Navigator Global Positioning System flight receiver.
Is there life on Pluto? A new study says that Pluto's icy heart, Sputnik Planitia, could have a subsurface ocean beneath it that may be hiding alien life forms.
In the case of the latest science fiction films where extraterrestrials battle it out with humans in outer space, it is likely the same could happen in the future. However, rather than a space war with aliens, it could happen between countries namely the United States, Russia, and China.
