NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity is back in commission and this time with plans to begin drilling soon on a patch of bedrock called “Cumberland.”
Astronauts aboard the International Space Station are mulling an emergency spacewalk to fix an ammonia leak that one official described as "very serious."
The International Space Station has suffered a small leak of ammonia which is used to cool its power system, NASA said Thursday, adding that the leak has posed no immediate danger to the astronauts onboard.
The water found inside the Moon's mantle came from ancient meteors, not comets, suggesting that lunar water and water on Earth share more in common than previously thought, a new study reports.
Mars One, a project dedicated to the human colonization of Mars, first opened the application process for astronaut and settler hopefuls in late April. Just two weeks later, nearly 80,000 individuals from around the world have volunteered to join the one-way mission headed for the Red Planet.
The Hubble Space Telescope has spotted signs of Earth-like rocky planets forming in the atmospheres of burnt-out stars in a nearby star cluster, and the stars are being bombarded with debris from asteroids-like objects being drawn in by the stars' gravity.
A green-tinged meteor that shot across the sky in Britain Wednesday night could have been debris from Halley's Comet, according to a U.K. scientist.
A never-before-seen cluster of hydrogen clouds have been discovered in the otherwise dark, starless patch of space between the galaxies Andromeda and Triangulum, according to a study published in the journal Nature.
For those living in northern Australia, the second solar eclipse to take place in less than six months will occur around dawn on Friday.
Scientists at the European Space Agency’s Herschel space observatory announced Tuesday their observations of the black hole located at the center of the Milky Way as it appears to be devouring a feast of molecular gas, according to a press release issued by the organization.
A 400-million Euro ($524,400,000) Earth observation mission was given a green light by the European Space Agency (ESA) Tuesday, signaling for the first time an attempt to measure global forest biomass from space.
With the help of NASA’s Sptizer Space Telescope, researchers are beginning to dissect an exotic class of planets known as hot Jupiters or roasters, due to their tight orbits around their stars.
Mt. Sharp, the 3.5-mile high Martian landmass and destination of the Curiosity rover, may have been formed by winds carrying dust and sand across the Red Planet, according to new research from Princeton University and California Institute of Technology. If correct, the research would upend the long-standing belief that Mt. Sharp was formed from layers of lakebed silt and is the remnant of an evaporated body of water.
Neil Armstrong’s EKG taken the moment he first set foot on the Moon is available to the highest bidder by the New Hampshire-based auction house RR Auction starting May 16
Astronomers are scanning the heavens for flashes of light that may signal the formation of a black hole, empowered by a new theory that indicates a dying star will generate a distinct flash of light that will allow man to witness the birth of a new black hole for the first time.
