A meteorite from Mars may hold one of the building blocks of life. Researchers have examined a piece of space rock that they recovered from Antarctica and discovered that it holds high concentrations of boron, an element that when present in its oxidized form may have played a key role in the format...
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has made some new discoveries when it comes to Saturn's moon, Dione. New findings have revealed that the moon may possess a subsurface ocean beneath its icy surface, which means that Dione could have been active in the past--and may still be active today.

Dramatic flood events carved this impressive channel system on Mars covering 1.55 million square kilometres, shown here in a stunning new mosaic from ESA’s Mars Express.
Satellite data will improve scientists’ understanding of global dynamics and processes, and aid the development of interactive Earth models for predicting global change.
You normally wouldn't consider a galaxy to be "tiny;" but in this case, it is. Astronomers have now measured the least massive galaxy in the known universe, and have made some surprising discoveries because of it.
Like many of the bright clusters and nebulae of planet Earth's night sky, which are often named for flowers or insects, NGC 6302 was named the Butterfly nebula even though its wingspan covers over 3 light-years.
NASA Mars rover Opportunity isn't just on the move, it's also discovered a clay-rich rock that hints to the fact that water existed on the Red Planet in the past.
Meteors may be contributing to Earth more than we thought. Researchers have discovered that about a ton of material that came from the Draconid meteor shower was deposited in our planet's atmosphere in 2011.
At 20 190 kg, ATV Albert Einstein is the heaviest spacecraft ever launched by Ariane, beating predecessor ATV Edoardo Amaldi by some 150 kg. ESA’s resupply and reboost vehicle is the largest, most advanced and most capable of the vehicles servicing the orbital outpost.
