NASA is currently preparing for their Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM) which will provide new knowledge on near-Earth objects such as asteroids.
Moon caves or lava tubes were discovered by NASA's GRAIL spacecraft tasked to observe the behavior of the moon. Scientists believes that these moon caves can be used as storage or even a safe haven to protect astronauts on the moon.
Pluto's smaller and odd-shaped moon is wrapped with icy pristine water, the findings were derived from the latest information sent to Earth by the New Horizon's mission to Pluto which was launched in 2006.
The NASA Casinni Spacecraft discovered that the icy Saturn Moon, Enceladus spews jets of gas and icy grains into space.
Saturn's moon, Titan, is looking more identical to Earth as NASA recently discovered that it has a strange-looking sea. However, unlike Earth where the sea is composed of water, Titan's sea and other liquid formations are filled with methane.
NASA scientists recently discovered that Pluto's sister planet, Makemake, is not alone. Using the Hubble telescope, the astronomers found that the dwarf planet has its own moon.
The European space is agency is planning on setting up a permanent outpost on the moon. The moon village will be a base for many new innovations, science, business, mining and tourism, said the multinational agency's head John-Dietrich Woerner.
A recent discovery by scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) found traces of iron isotopes in samples from the moon, similar to those found on our ocean floor, leading them to believe that it came from the same supernova explosion.
That magnetic moon, that big pizza pie -- is affecting rainfall on Earth as well as the already-known tidal functions.
In the dark polar night, when the moon appears over the horizon, things happen. That is, the huge mass of tiny marine life, or zooplankton, take on a migration in order not to be viewed by their light-seeing predators.
Corals release their eggs and sperm based on photosynthetic cues provided by moonlight. However, when artificial light pollution interferes with natural light, corals fail to spawn. This could have serious impacts on threatened reefs.
Researchers say that a 47-mile wide mound in a huge crater on the moon's south pole has a volcanic past. It's a pretty lively one, too.
In evidence of great antagonism in the past, researchers from MIT have found that asteroid marks on the moon go much deeper beneath the surface than ever known. This will indicate much to us going forward, about solar system history.
While it isn't abnormal for either a total lunar eclipse or a supermoon to occur, it is rare for them to occur together. Sept. 27 will mark the first time in over thirty years that these planetary events will coincide. Get ready to howl.
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.
