NASA’s researchers who are currently working on a Spitzer Space Telescope made a crucial announcement in which they revealed that they had found a close...
What happens when ISS astronauts get a GoPro to play around with? They drown it.
Alien surfaces of our Solar System.
Ozone layer still under threat due to large amount of carbon tetrachloride.
Cassini will take a closer look at the mysterious hexagon-shaped vortex on Saturn later this month.

The much observed comet will be making a dangerous journey around our sun tomorrow, just in time for your Thanksgiving entertainment.
The MAVEN spacecraft, which stands for Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN, sat atop an Atlas 5 rocket at 1:28 EST earlier today, blasting off from the Air Force Station in Cape Canaveral, Florida. It's going to take ten months for MAVEN to reach its destination.
Last month, our very own sun experienced quite the spectacular phenomenon that NASA is calling the "canyon of fire." And they got it all on video.
While we deal with our Earth-bound problems, scientists have recognized that a "devastating" asteroid is currently hurtling its way toward our planet and it could wipe us all out when it makes impact in a few years.
No, it's not the most imaginative or creative of names, but the galaxy dubbed PGC 6240 could be one of the most interesting. It has "hazy petal-like shells" that form a "pale rose in the sky."
A new thruster design, which involves using the energy from a laser’s photons for pushing a spacecraft away from that laser’s emitter, is getting funding from NASA.
Pizza Rolls and reheated leftovers, that's all a microwave is good for, right? Not necessarily. What if we told you that your microwave could be used to charge your devices? Crazy, we know.
SpaceX and Orbital Sciences will be launching spacecrafts next week.
Later this year, NASA astronauts aboard the ISS have a new duty: attending to a mini-garden of romaine lettuce. That’s one small step for lettuce, one giant leap for vegetation kind!
A big part of that transition comes by way of developments like their TextureCam. Here is a 3D camera system that allows the exploration robots to make an educated guess as to what should be worth investigating further.
We've been seen more and more evidence indicating that there is indeed water on the moon and the latest discovery comes by way of the Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) on NASA's Indian Chandrayaan-1 probe.
This is Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano. He's smiling here, but he certainly wasn't smiling last month when he almost drowned outside the International Space Station.
Researchers at the Space Power and Propulsion Laboratory at the University of Maryland have developed a solution called the Resonant Inductive Near-field Generation System, or RINGS for short. This is an electromagnetic propulsion technology that doesn't require any of those individual satellites to carry around or use any sort of propellant.
Right now we have a space station, and could soon have a space hotel. But what about an actual space colony? That could be soon happening - on Mars.
We survived Y2K largely unscathed. We survived the so-called Mayan Apocalypse of 2012. We survived the doomsday predictions of Nostradamus. And we will also survive the cosmic phenomenon of our sun reversing the polarity of its magnetic field in a few months.
Realistically, none of us will likely have the opportunity to step foot on the Red Planet during our lifetimes, but this reasonably affordable virtual reality simulation could be the next best thing.
As we have seen before, it is quite a difficult task for astronauts to keep themselves clean aboard the International Space Station, but they also have to make sure that they get enough exercise out there. So how do the folks at the ISS keep themselves fit? Let’s take a look.
Most of us are familiar with the Boeing name, having flown on one of their planes to get to this place or that, but the Chicago-based corporations also has ambitions that take us beyond the Earth's atmosphere. Near NASA's Johnson Space Center is Boeing's Houston Product Support Center and it was there that they revealed the full scale version of the CST-100 spacecraft.
While our friends in the Star Trek universe venture out to explore strange new worlds and to seek out new life, back here in the real world, we're still trying to figure out what's going to happen closer to home. And NASA has come a little bit closer to understanding and observing the death of our very own sun.
NASA’s new Mars rover, which will be part of an unnamed 2020 mission to the red planet, will search for signs of past life which existed when the planet was much warmer and wetter.
Data from Curiosity's Radiation Assessment Detector suggests that current radiation shielding available on spacecrafts won’t be enough to protect human explorers from radiation exposure during a manned trip to Mars.
We have a video which shows Lockheed Martin’s newly developed ADAM high energy laser (HEL) system taking out a rocket from a range of 1.5 km.
NASA has released images and video of a massive hurricane at Saturn's north pole.
In the Star Trek universe, our brave heroes endeavor to "boldly go where no man has gone before." NASA is taking a slightly different approach, bringing the world of space closer to us instead.
NASA funded researchers are working on nuclear fusion technology, which could considerably speed up space travel and reduce costs in the future.
Don't worry. NASA is going to keep exploring Mars and we're going to keep learning things about the red planet, but all of those operations will effectively be put on pause for a period of up to three weeks and we have the sun to blame.
Last month, we read about how the European Space Agency was teaming up with architectural firm Foster and Partners. The idea is that they would use 3D printing technology to build a lunar base. This makes a lot of sense, since it utilizes existing resources on the moon to build those structures, rather than shuttling all those materials from Earth. It seems that NASA is working on a similar idea.
Not including a long 563,000,000 km (350,000,000 mi) journey, NASA's Mars Rover Curiosity has been on Mars for nearly 7 month now.
Remember that meteor that exploded over Russia just 4 days ago? It caused havoc in Chelyabinsk, Russia when 1,200 people and 3,724 buildings were damaged. Videos...
Last summer, the Curiosity rover touched down on the Martian surface and space geeks from around the world, myself included, rejoiced at the accomplishment. That little rover has been roaming around on Mars for the last few months and now it has drilled a hole into the Red Planet and collected some bedrock.
NASA is currently testing the idea of building a nuclear fission engine that could propel their probes into deep space, well beyond Mars and into the outer reaches of our solar system.
