Scientists have discovered carbon dioxide on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which hints at extreme temperature changes on the comet’s surface.
NASA's Stratospheric Observation for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) will soon begin its 2017 observing campaign.
Right after the supermoon showed its might, the Leonids meteor shower will lit up November skies.
A new study suggests that Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which was explored by the Rosetta spacecraft, is relatively a newcomer in the inner solar system.
The Orionids meteor shower will peak on Oct. 20 to Oct. 21 with 15 to 20 meteors per hour.
The Perseid meteor shower had been the most spectacular astronomical show this year, but before the year ends stargazers can expect a couple more meteor showers including the Draconids that will light up the sky this Oct. 7.
During its exploration of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the Rosetta probe detected magnetic field oscillations that were later converted into sound. As the probe prepares for its finale, the comet sings a new song.
ESA's Rosetta mission will formally end on Sept. 30. A collision maneuver will be executed that will send Rosetta to free fall into the comet.
ESA's Rosetta comet chaser will be switched off and will crash to its death on Sept. 30.
Astronomers identified mechanism behind the outbursts in the surface of the Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko observed by the Rosetta spacecraft
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has bore witness to a rare cosmic occurrence -- the slow death of a 4.5-billion-year-old comet, slowly disintegrating to space.
ESA's comet chaser, Rosetta found complex organic molecules from dust grains surrounding a comet. An important discovery just before it runs out of fuel and crash to its death.
The European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta spacecraft has analyzed dust samples from the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko for the first time, which could reveal the origins of the solar system.
The Perseid meteor shower is anticipated worldwide and is expected to show its might starting Aug. 11 to Aug. 12.
