British astronaut Tim Peake successfully completed an experiment to control a robot rover on earth from the International Space Station. He used a program called Meteron by the European Space Station (ESA) designed to facilitate control of machines remotely from great distances.
The Hubble Space Telescope is commemorating its 26th year in space. In line with this festive celebration, Hubble has stitched together four separate images to form a mosaic showing us the incredible beauty of a bubble nebula.
The London Marathon is an annual event anticipated by most British health enthusiasts and foreign athletes alike. This year, the London Marathon is going to be unique because one of the marathoners is joining the race from space. British astronaut Timothy Peake is set to join the London Marathon from inside the International Space Station.
Conquering Mars, also known as the Red Planet, is the latest objective of international space agencies including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), European Space Agency (ESA) and China National Space Administration (CNSA).
Akatsuki, the Japanese space agency probe, has reached Venus's atmosphere and is sending back photos.
A European Space Agency astronaut, Tim Peake, will run the London Marathon from the International Space Station.
The Hubble Space Telescope recently captured detailed images of Twin Jet Nebula, which has recently ejected its outer layers, and illuminated them, signifying it is in its final stages of life.
The historic spacecraft Rosetta and its comet host are closer to the Sun than ever before, and that means one thing: breathtaking photos
It's no secret that Titan is spotted with lakes and even seas of liquid methane. And while the seas of this moon have their own magic, it was the lakes that always had experts scratching their heads. Unlike with craters and glacial paths on Earth, the formation of lakes on Titan was a complete mystery, until now.
Last November, a little lander called Philae left the side the Rosetta spacecraft to make history as the first manmade robot to alight on the surface of a comet. The trouble was, soon after the lander slipped from Rosetta's sight, it was never heard from again. Now, nearly eight months later, the lander is finally calling home, reassuring fretting scientists that it's awake and doing well.
It's been eight months since the European Space Agency's (ESA) Philae lander fell away from the Rosetta Spacecraft, on its way toward making history. Officially, it was the first piece of human technology ever to successfully land on a comet as it hurtled through space. However, soon after touchdown, the historic lander went missing. Now, investigators think they have found where Philae is hiding.
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.
Happy 25th anniversary Hubble! As of April 24, it has been a whopping quarter of a century since the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) rocketed out of Earth's atmosphere to begin its mission of surveying the stars. Since then, it's had a hand in... well, just about any space research you can think of. Now, on the advent of this landmark anniversary, we take a look at what the Hubble has accomplished, and what the future has in store for it.
The Hubble Space Telescope recently captured images of some eerie and beautiful objects floating around space. A series of green and ghostly wisps were recently spotted by the unmanned orbital telescope, betraying the past presence of quasars, the brightest objects in the Universe.
Dark matter: unless you're a theoretical physicist, you probably will have a hard time explaining just what this mysterious thing in our Universe really is. Even experts have long viewed the material as one giant question mark looming over blackboards and telescopic lenses. Now, a new discovery has made things even more complicated. Dark matter, as it turns out, barely even interacts with itself, explaining why it is so undetectable.
