NASA's Discovery Mission to reach the metallic asteroid Psyche is four years earlier than the original timeline.
Astronomers have recently discovered a rogue asteroid that does not travel in an opposite, retrograde orbit around the sun, but also shares an orbital space with a planet.
NASA's OSIRIS-REx will not only collect samples from asteroid Bennu but it will also scan outer space for "Trojan" asteroids or constant planet companions.
A team led by astronomers at University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory have identified the smallest asteroid ever to be described and characterized in detail.
Researchers are trying to prove if the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs punched a hole on the Earth's crust.
NASA and FEMA performed an exercise to further enhance asteroid detection, the question now is, is the government prepared if an asteroid indeed hits the Earth?
How would you feel if you suddenly found a massive asteroid on its way to collide with Earth? This was the main topic of discussion on Oct. 25 between NASA and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in El Segundo, California.
