Scientists have found that Earth's gravity has influenced the orientation of thousands of faults that form in the lunar surface as the moon shrinks.
Scientists have discovered a global ocean on Saturn's moon, Enceladus. The ocean, found by NASA's Cassini mission, may tell researchers a bit more about this icy world.
When it comes to finding habitable planets, it may depend on a rocky planet's "air conditioning system." Scientists have found that some exoplanets that permanently face their sun with the same side could, potentially, be habitable.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured a spectacular new image of the galaxy Messier 63, a cosmic sunflower swirling in the middle of space. Nicknamed the "Sunflower Galaxy," this object has spiral arms and millions of stars.
Astronomers are taking a closer look at the birth of a planetary system.
Scientists have discovered traces of two enormous meteorite impacts in Sweden. The twin strike occurred around 460 million years ago, and may reveal a bit more about our planet's early history.
Could Io have an underground magma ocean? Tides flowing in a subsurface ocean of molten rock could explain why Jupiter's moon appears to have its volcanoes in the "wrong" place, according to a new study.
Scientists have now received the newest images of Pluto from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft.
Scientists have uncovered a rare galaxy cluster with a bursting heart.
It turns out that our moon can take a few hits. Scientists have found that the moon's crust is as fractured as it possibly could be after the beating it took 4 billion years ago.
Scientists have discovered that, although it's always been considered a biomarker for life, just because oxygen is present on a planet, it may not be a habitable planet.
