Seven tiny grains of dust captured by the NASA Stardust spacecraft may just be from interstellar space.
Scientists may have just made a discovery that could protect our planet from future collisions with asteroids.
Scientists have spotted a compact source of X-rays, called a corona, sitting near a supermassive black hole has moved closer to the black hole over just a matter of days.
The Perseid meteor shower graces our night skies each summer and now, it's finally time to look up once more. Tonight, you'll get your chance to see shooting "stars" streak across the skies as the meteor shower reaches its peak.
