Winds of over 2 kilometers per second have been discovered speeding past a planet outside of Earth's solar system.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has made a surprising discovery about Saturn's moon, Titan. It's discovered a truly massive ice cloud on the moon, heralding the change of seasons on the world.
Astronomers have spotted the most distant object yet in our solar system.
Since the late 1980s, researchers have discovered nearly 5,000 planetary bodies orbiting stars other than the sun. Now, scientists have defined what should be called a planet and what shouldn't be.
A new, Venus-like planet has been found in our cosmic neighborhood. The newfound world, as hot as an oven, may just be cool enough to host an atmosphere and is only 39 light-years away.
A team of researchers from the Australian National University have discovered some of the oldest stars near Milky Way center. The researchers made the discovery using the ANU SkyMapper telescope.
Dust devils may actually help guide future missions to Mars. Scientists have used a seismometer to detect the tiny tilts of the ground as dust devils passed by, which may tell them a bit more about the dust devils on Mars.
NASA researchers have taken a closer look at the data from the historic New Horizons flyby and have found that the heart-shaped region of Pluto is surprisingly young.
Mercury is being pelted regularly by bits of dust from an ancient comet. Scientists have taken a closer look at the planet and have found that this bombardment has a discernible effect in its tenuous atmosphere.
Medicine doesn't degrade faster in space. Scientists have conducted an opportunistic, pilot-scale study and have found that medication on the International Space Station (ISS) does not degrade faster than medication on Earth.
It turns out that Mars' moon, Phobos, is slowly falling apart. Scientists have taken a closer look at this moon and have found that it's showing early signs of structural failure that will ultimately destroy it.
