Scientists have encountered a mystery above the surface of Mars. They've spotted strange plumes reaching high above the Red Planet's surface that they're unable to explain.
We're getting a new look at ocean acidification--from space. Researchers have used satellites to monitor ocean acidification, and have been able to see the impacts on large swatches of inaccessible ocean from orbit.
Saturn's moon, Titan, has fascinated scientists for years. Now, researchers have taken a closer look at the giant moon and have discovered a new technique to improve NASA's Cassini spacecraft's images of the moon.
The iconic images of our solar system's planets from NASA's Voyager mission have officially turned 25 as of Feb. 14
Why do starburst galaxies "burst?" Now, scientists may have found out why by dissecting a cluster of star-forming clouds at the heart of NGC 253, a starburst galaxy close to the Milky Way.
The team responsible for the visual effects in the movie, Interstellar, have now shed a bit more light on the powerful effects of black holes.
Astronomers have discovered a rare planet with some extreme seasons. Called Kepler-432b, the planet is one of the most dense and massive planets to be discovered thus far, and has temperatures that range from 500 degrees Celsius to a scorching 1,000 degrees.
Astronomers have caught a pair of fraternal, twin stars in the midst of being born. The researchers have spotted a new pair of stars that's actually a new class of binary stars; one is fully formed while the other is still in its infancy.
Comets are a bit like deep fried ice cream--at least that's according to astronomers who have taken a closer look at the composition of comets. They've examined the structure of a comet and have discovered why they're encased in a hard, outer crust.
Astronomers are witnessing the birth of a star system. This week, scientists have reported the first multiple-star system to be observed during the earliest stages of formation, revealing a bit more about the evolution of these systems
Scientists have uncovered a startling new discovery in the heart of what they thought was a "boring" galaxy. They've discovered a supermassive black hole explosively heating and blasting the gas in the galaxy, creating a type of galactic storm.
Say "cheese!" The NASA Hubble Space Telescope has captured an image of the galaxy cluster SDS J1038+4849 that makes it look as if the galaxy itself is smiling. But the new image isn't just a pretty face; it also tells astronomers a bit more about this galaxy.
