NASA's mission to Jupiter's moon got its official name - Europa Clipper. The mission will investigate the habitability if the icy moon Europa.
NASA is planning to send a robot over one of Jupiter's moons, Europa. However, this time, it's not for sight-seeing and assessing its atmosphere but to actually look for alien life.
NASA's Europa mission is moving to the second phase. Phase B is the design stage where the draft of systems and subsystems will be created before fabrication and testing in phase C and D.
NASA's Juno spacecraft will remain on its current 53-day orbit. The team behind Juno said an engine burn to reduce orbit to 14 days will no longer be performed to avoid any damage to the spacecraft.
NASA asked a number of scientists to study the chance of building a Europa lander.
It turns out, Saturn is our protector all along. New study suggests Jupiter plays a different role in the solar system.
Water molecules were detected by astronomers in the atmosphere of hot Jupiter 51 Pegasi B. The astronomers used CRISES and VLT to analyze the object.
Juno captured a weather cyclone on the surface of Jupiter called the little red spot. Citizen scientists enhanced the image to reveal the spot in greater detail.
NASA lets the public decide where JunoCam should look on the next flyby to Jupiter. The next approach will take place on Feb. 2.
A citizen scientist created a stunning image of Jupiter. The image was created from the archive of photographs taken by the Juno spacecraft.
A team of astronomers has recently discovered a new gas giant exoplanet that is three times bigger than Jupiter. The new extrasolar world was detected through the gravitational microlensing method.
NASA's Juno spacecraft completed its third flyby to Jupiter. During the close approach, the spacecraft's JunoCam was able to capture the "string of pearls" series of storms on the surface of Jupiter.
In hopes of understanding the marine environments of the Earth, scientists make use of underwater drones. This same method is also being used by scientists working at NASA, but the difference is that they are developing an “intelligent” kind which would help them study Jupiter’s moon, Europa.
The waning crescent moon joined Jupiter in the predawn sky on Nov. 25. Skywatchers all over the world captured stunning photos of the celestial rendezvous.
