NASA revealed last Friday, that the agency will sail at full speed in terms of space exploration while waiting for the Jupiter's up close encounter courtesy of Juno on Aug.27.
A new distant dwarf planet was discovered beyond Neptune.
Evidence of first water clouds was discovered in a brown dwarf or a failed star outside the Solar System.
If conditions eons ago were a little bit different, the Earth could have been searing and dead while its nearest neighbor Venus could the one lush and teeming with life.
The New Horizons spacecraft will perform a flyby on an another object within the Kuiper belt that orbits the sun one billion tmiles farther than Pluto.
Juno will enter Jupiter's orbit on the Fourth of July. To fulfill its mission, the spacecraft should be able to withstand "hellish" radiation levels as powerful as 100 million dental X-rays.
Geologists have discovered that Mercury’s composition a few billion years ago was that of an extremely rare meteorite found on Earth.
A new study from University of Cambridge suggests that the existence of Planet Nine would most likely affect the orbit of extreme trans-Nepunian objects, making lengthy and unstable.
NASA is expecting the mission to deliver tons of information from a planet believed to be formed as early as the Sun.
Titan and Europa both have Earth-like properties which is why scientists are closely monitoring the moons to know whether life forms exist on these celetial bodies.
Researchers at Cornell University said that in order to find habitable zones in the galaxy, scientists should look at expanding red and old stars because they are capable of thawing icy and frozen moons and planets. Once thawed, they can now have the capability to retain water and eventually enable life to thrive.
NASA is developing Heliopost Electrostatic Transit System (HERTS) E-sail system which uses protons from solar wind to propel the spacecraft.
The curiosity about Mars increases with the discovery of atomic oxygen in its atmosphere; let's look at some of the facts about the red planet which may interest us.
Launched from Earth in 2011, the spacecraft is only 34 million miles away from its destination. Once it enters the planet's orbit, scientists will begin more intensive studies and observations.
A team of astronomers has recently discovered three habitable alien planets that have Earth-like qualities. Interestingly, these newly discovered exoplanets are orbiting a nearby "ultracool dwarf star" called TRAPPIST-1, shedding more hints that life outside the solar system could be possible.
