Astronomers have officially spotted the smallest exoplanet to have ever been found with water vapor.
NASA's MAVEN spacecraft has successfully beamed images of the first set of Martian observation that it collected eight hours after the orbital insertion.
Mars is getting a bit more crowded. India's Mars Orbiter Spacecraft successfully entered an orbit around the Red Planet this morning, Sept. 24, 2014.
Scientists have created new models that examine what happens when unstable clusters of newly formed protostars break up and explain why there are so many binary stars are present in the universe.
In the early morning hours of March 4, 2002, military officers in Afghanastan radioed a Chinook helicopter heading for the snowcapped peak of Takur Ghar. Unfortunately, the helicopter crash-landed after not receiving a key message; now, scientists have found that the reason for the missed message ma...
Scientists have taken a closer look at Uranus and Neptune and may have found an answer when it comes to their problematic chemical composition. The new findings provide new clues when it comes to understanding their formation.
While researchers thought that prospects for an El Niño event in 2014 were fading, they've now found that there may be the possibility of a comeback.
Weather doesn't just occur here on Earth; it also occurs in space. Astronomers have used the ALMA telescope to spot what may be the first-ever signs of windy weather around a T Tauri star.
After a journey of 10 months, NASA's MAVEN orbiter has finally successfully entered into the Martian orbit, reports NASA.
Imagine being in space. Now, imagine that instead of a bulky spacesuit, you can put on a skintight, stretchy garment lined with tiny, musclelike coils.
It turns out that massive galaxies don't expand by making their own stars. Instead, they gain weight by chomping on nearby galaxies. Scientists have found that monster galaxies tend to absorb smaller ones in order to grow larger.
Orbiting Uranus, Miranda appears to have experienced an episode of intense resurfacing that resulted in the formation of at least three remarkable surface features: polygonal-shaped areas called coronae. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at these coronae to learn a bit more about the moon.
