NASA ran successful free-flight and landing tests of the Morpheus prototype lander last night, showing that the new Hazard Detection System can enable automated systems to land wherever they want.
A private group of space science enthusiasts announced yesterday that they have successfully made contact with an old NASA spacecraft that has been drifting in space since the early 1980s.
NASA missions in orbit have for the first time allowed scientists to observe the Moon's "dancing tide" swaying with Earth's gravitational pull.
As part of an unprecedented study of zero gravity and weightlessness, identical twin astronauts have volunteered to take part in a yearlong NASA space project.
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.
