The Hubble Space Telescope has revealed that powerful starbursts in dwarf galaxies may have had a larger role to play that previously expected.
When you think of water, you wouldn't normally think of some of the hottest celestial bodies in the universe-stars. But astronomers using ESA's Herschel space observatory are certainly making the connection after a recent study.
Earlier this month the National Research Council deemed NASA’s strategies to send humans to Mars unsustainable and unsafe. Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of SpaceX, believes that such Mars missions can be achieved within the next 10-12 years.
There may be a new way to monitor underground water sources. Scientists have managed to find a way to use satellites to accurately measure levels of water stored hundreds of feet below ground.
The James Webb Telescope is schedule for launch later this decade as NASA is currently conducting tests on its science instruments. The telescope will study every phase in the history of the Universe, including the evolution of our solar system.
NASA scientists are taking a look beyond Pluto. Using the Hubble Space Telescope, researchers are planning to search for an object the Pluto-bound NASA New Horizons mission could visit after its flyby of Pluto in July 2015.
Scientists have found that solar photons may actually drive water off of the moon, which means that researchers are unlikely to find water on the moon's sunlit side.
Astronauts aboard the International Space Station can finally kick start their day downing a piping hot cup of coffee thanks to the first space station coffee maker.
Scientists hunting for alien life may have a new tool in their arsenal. Researchers have created a powerful new model to detect life on planets outside of our solar system more accurately than ever before.
What sort of aromatic flavors would you encounter on Saturn's moon, Titan? That's a good question, and it's one that NASA scientists have managed to figure out.
Asteroid HQ214 was discovered only six weeks ago, but NASA researchers have wasted no time in finding out more about it. They bounced radio signals off of the giant planetoid and received the most detailed radar views ever.
It turns out that there may be far more binary stars in our universe than astronomers once thought. It turns out that high-mass stars are rarely solitary, which means that heavy stars may already form as twins.
