After some significant difficulties and a major detour along the way, the NASA's latest Mars rover, Curiosity, has made it to the next major landmark of its ongoing journey across the Red Planet's surface.
Particularly low gravity can confuse the brain, making it harder to tell up from down despite what your eyes are telling you. That can make moon walks a lot harder than astronauts make it look.
Now retired astronaut Frank Culbertson was the only American not on the planet the day of the 9/11 strike, but that certainly doesn't mean that he didn't feel the impact of this tragedy. In fact, as he recalls in letters and a recent video, hearing about the attack from so far away was a profoundly heart-wrenching experience.
We may be due for the consequences of an intense solar storm passing over the Earth tomorrow after what NASA is calling a "significant" solar flare burst from the Sun yesterday afternoon.
Three crew members of the International Space Station (ISS) touched down on solid earth for the first time in 169 days on Wednesday, marking an end to one of the most intensive research stints that NASA astronauts and Roscosmos cosmonauts have ever been on.
NASA will soon be taking some unique 3D snapshots of the Earth's forests from the International Space Station (ISS) in the hopes of learning more about our planet's important carbon cycle.
In less than two weeks, NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft will complete its 10 month trek through space and enter into orbit around the Red Planet.
The explosion that shook the Nicaraguan capital city of Managua over the weekend was supposedly caused by a small meteorite, according to officials investigating the resulting crater. However, now experts from NASA are expressing their doubts, as civilians did not report seeing a streak or bright flash across the sky that night.
In less than two weeks, NASA will be launching the ISS-RapidScat wind-watching scatterometer into Earth's orbit, where it will be taxied up to the International Space Station (ISS). Interestingly, the impressively complex monitoring satellite will be going up to the ISS in parts, and the station itself will be tasked to see to its final assembly and start-up.
The long-running Cassini orbital Saturn mission has revealed that there are hundreds of hydrocarbon lakes and seas located all over Saturn's moon Titan. Now new observations have led researchers to believe that they can explain, at least in-part, how methane rainfall replenishes these liquid landmarks.
As they wrap up measuring just how loud a test model of the new Space Launch System rocket can be, NASA engineers are crunching numbers to figure out how they can make sure the rocket's lift-off isn't so loud it destroys itself.
NASA has recently tested a number of specially 3D printed rocket parts, showing just how efficient the technology really is, and how it could potentially revolutionize how the agency makes use of additive manufacturing in rocket design.
Astronomers using a combination of land and space telescopes believe they have, for the first time, identified a "building site" for galaxy construction, with millions of newborn stars blazing into existence.
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has spotted what it suspects is an asteroid smashup - the type of collision that can lead to the formation of new planets, according to a new study.
