NASA has unveiled a new video of the far side of the moon. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has caught images of the moon's far side and now, NASA has constructed a video that shows and explains exactly what the far side is like.
The Hubble Space Telescope has captured some images of a rare occurrence. It's caught three of Jupiter's largest moons passing in front of the gas planet's banded face.
Stars may actually be younger than astronomers first thought. The latest data release from the ESA satellite Planck consortium reveals that star formation in our universe may be relatively recent.
Scientists have calculated that there may be hundreds of billions of Earth-like planets in our galaxy which could support life.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the evolution and formation of hundreds of nearby galaxies. Now, they're unveiling new scientific images of these galaxies that reveal their internal structure and interaction among one another.
The VISTA telescope is taking some spectacular images of the central regions of our Milky Way as it maps the galaxy. Known as the VISTA Variables in the Via Lactea (VVV) survey, this effort should give astronomers a new glimpse of our galaxy as a whole.
Astronomers have discovered faint plumes extending from a nearby spiral galaxy, revealing unprecedented details about this object. The findings could tell researchers a bit more about spiral galaxies in general.
In March of last year, scientists announced that they had observed the portion of cosmic background radiation, which is the fossil radiation from the Big Bang, generated by gravitational waves. Now, scientists have announced that more evidence is needed.
Mining isn't a new concept. But can you imagine mining the moon? It's not all that farfetched, according to researchers. It's possible that the moon could be mined in the future for its resources.
Scientists have found that spaceflight may be associated with the accelerated aging of the immune system.
Scientists have found that some galaxies die young. It turns out that galaxies can die early because the gas they need to make new stars is suddenly ejected.
