Researchers have taken a look at two opposite climate scenarios for the Red Planet and have found that a cold an icy planet may better explain the water drainage and erosion features seen on the planet today.
Scientists have managed to create the coldest stable molecules in the world. They've cooled molecules in a gas of sodium potassium (NaK) to a temperature of 500 nanokelvins, which is just a hair above absolute zero and over a million times colder than interstellar space.
Scientists may now know what causes the "hotspots" on Saturn's poles. NASA's Cassini spacecraft has revealed that these hotspots are actually immense cyclones, each as wide as the Earth itself, that have been churning for years.
Rosetta's famed lander, Philae, has woken up again after seven months in hibernation on the surface of the Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This signals the continuation of Philae's mission on this comet.
A 15-year-old boy has discovered a new planet orbiting a star that's 1,000 light-years away in our galaxy.
The surface of Pluto is getting more detailed as New Horizons closes in on the planet. Scientists have received a closer look at the tiny planet with a series of new images.
Three crew members from the International Space Station (ISS) returned safely to Earth on Thursday after a mission lasting 199 days.
NASA's Hubble Telescope may have detected a layer of "sunscreen" on a planet. It's spotted a stratosphere, one of the primary layer of Earth's atmosphere, on a massive and blazing-hot exoplanet known as WASP-33b.
Scientists have gotten their closest look yet at the dwarf planet Ceres. The spacecraft dawn has captured new images of the dwarf planet, located between Mars and Jupiter.
Saturn is known for its rings. Until now, though, scientists didn't realize exactly how big they were. They've now found that Saturn's outer ring is far larger than anyone thought.
Researchers have found a galaxy, called NGC 6503, which is located at an edge of a strangely empty patch of space called the Local Void.
Scientists have snapped some of the sharpest images to date with ESO's Very Large Telescope. Now, they've caught what appears to be an aging star giving birth to a butterfly-like planetary nebula.
