A team of U.S. scientists plan on using mini satellites that will play the role of 'space cops' and prevent collision of satellite in space with some space debris.
Scientists are stumped as to how a rock mysteriously appeared in images taken two weeks apart by NASA's Mars rover Opportunity.
In a latest announcement NASA claims that using Herschel space observatory they have found water vapor on the dwarf planet Ceres, a celestial object that is bigger than an asteroid and smaller than a planet.
With the help of a bright star, astronomers have spotted a new exoplanet the size of Neptune. The finding could help researchers better understand this double star system.
The VLT Survey Telescope (VST) is capturing some spectacular images as it covers the Milky Way Galaxy. Astronomers have released a new image of the brilliant Lagoon Nebula, showing researchers a bit more about this giant cloud of gas and dust that's creating intensely bright young stars.
It might seem down-right bizarre. Why on earth would NASA need some common ants? Eight-hundred of them, in fact. Well, it just so happens that these guys were sent to the International Space Station (ISS) and are now living there so that astronauts can observe just how they behave in low-gravity env...
Astronomers have discovered a distant quasar illuminating a vast nebula of diffuse gas. The brilliant point sheds light on part of the network of filaments thought to connect galaxies in a cosmic web.
It's been 31 months since the ESA has heard from its distant spacecraft, Rosetta. Now, scientists have finally gotten a signal from the spacecraft that's chasing down a comet. The latest signal shows that the Rosetta space mission is on track and should shed some light on comets.
Astronomers have found evidence backing up theoretically predicted divisions in the chemical composition of the stars that make up the Milky Way's disc, which suggests that stars in the inner regions of the Galactic dis were the first to form. This means that our galaxy grew from the inside-out.
Astronomers have discovered an extremely distant quasar, the most energetic and brightest objects in the universe, illuminating a vast nebula of diffuse gas, revealing for the first time part of the vast network of filaments thought to form a universe-spanning cosmic spider web.
A team of researchers has directly imaged a very rare type of brown dwarf that can serve as a benchmark for studying objects with masses that lie between stars and planets.
