NASA is expecting the mission to deliver tons of information from a planet believed to be formed as early as the Sun.
New studies suggest that the plain and icy heart of Pluto called Sputnik Platum beats like a cosmic lava lamp. The reservoir of nitrogen-ice, when warmed up by the internal hear of Pluto melts and rises to the surface which makes the icy part appear beating.
NASA released a backlit photo of Pluto dubbed as "Twilight Zone" showcasing possible evidence of clouds forming in Pluto's atmosphere. The photo was taken during New Horizon's flyby last year and it was only revealed this month.
"The planet is gonna be wrecked. People are just being rude to it," the infuriated young boy said in between sobs.
A new study reveals that an exoplanet located in the outermost region of a five-planet system 1,200 might years away of Earth may contain an ocean, making it capable of sustaining life.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope managed to capture another stunning photograph of Mars.
Amateur astronomers led a study to find out how many asteroids and meteors hit Jupiter each year. Initial findings revealed that a total of 6 to 7 impacts are experienced by the planet annually.
The latest findings of the New Horizon mission in Pluto suggests that it is neither a comet or a planet based from its unique interaction with solar wind.
New research from NASA yields information on what's causing the grooves in the surface of Mars' moon Phobos.
After examining potentially habitable climates of three exoplanets, two seem to use an air-condition-like system that prevents the planet from getting too hot, according to KU Leuven researchers.
Thrills and suspense are the last things you'd associate with a science book, but Peter Ward and Joe Kirschvink's A New History of Life delivers plenty of both.
For the last decade, astronomers have struggled to figure out what was causing the mysterious massive cyclones seen on Saturn. Now, new research has revealed that multiple small thunderstorms are to blame.
Two of Pluto's moons, Nix and Hydra, are wobbling unpredictably in some kind of "cosmic dance," according to new data discovered by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, adding more mystery to this former planet.
Jupiter's moon Europa has in recent years given scientists hope that it harbors conditions suitable for life, so in a bid to explore this possibility further, on Tuesday, NASA chose nine high-tech instruments for a mission to search for life on this mysterious icy world.
For decades, people have dreamed of the possibility of life on Mars. And as technologies have advanced, astronomers have bolstered their efforts in searching for civilized superbeings, to no avail. Although we have yet to discover life on the Red Planet, scientists are now honing a new technique that may change the game.
