It turns out that Saturn's largest moon, Titan, behaves a lot like Mars and Venus. Scientists have studied data from NASA's Cassini mission and have found that unmagnetized bodies like Titan may interact with the solar wind in the same basic ways, despite their distance from the sun.
The Hubble Space Telescope has captured two galaxies in the midst of what appears to be a galactic collision.
Scientists have taken a closer look at one of the most well studied supernova remnants in our galaxy, Cassiopeia A. They've created a new 3D map of its interior that reveals surprising, never-before-seen details about the supernova.
There may be a new way to improve weather forecasts. Scientists have found that the key to a better prediction may actually lie within examining the soil.
Two phenomena that are known to actually inhibit the habitability of planets may actually help chances for life. Scientists have found that tidal forces and vigorous stellar activity may promote life on certain planets orbiting low-mass stars.
ESO's Very Large Telescope has captured a spectacular new image of the cometary globule CG4, which glows in fiery reds and oranges in the photo. This faint object is actually a nebula, and was first spotted in 1976.
About four years ago, a citizen scientist that was looking for the tell-tale bubble patterns of star formation in the Milky Way Project found something else: bright yellow, fuzzy objects. Now, scientists have discovered exactly what these "yellowballs" actually are.
NASA's Dawn spacecraft has returned the sharpest images to date of the dwarf planet Ceres. Taken just 147,000 miles from the tiny planet on Jan. 25, the images represent a new milestone for the spacecraft as it continues its journey toward Ceres.
Astronomers have spotted an ancient, sun-like star with orbiting planets in a system that dates back to the dawn of the galaxy. The system is the oldest to be discovered by far with Earth-sized planets, and proves that such planets formed throughout the history of the universe.
A new satellite may be multitasking after it's launched into space. While some satellites only monitor the Earth and other satellites only monitor the sun, the new DSCOVR satellite will keep an eye on both.
NASA has tracked the massive blizzard that's pummeling the northeast today.
