Scientists and astronomers around the globe were anxiously waiting to observe the fate of the Comet ISON dubbed as comet of the century, whether it is powerful enough to survive its journey around the Sun.
Black holes can gobble down dust and gas, consuming material at a rapid pace. Just how rapid this pace is, though, largely depends on the size of the black hole. Now, astronomers have found a new black hole that may change that line of thinking.
Being in space is no reason to miss out on this traditional feast. Since 2000 every year the space station crews celebrate Thanksgiving. This year the Americans in space will also celebrate Thanksgiving with a traditional thanksgiving dinner.
Astronomers around the world are anxiously waiting to watch the fate of the icy visitor 'Comet ISON' as it plunges headlong for a close encounter with the Sun called perihelion.
While previous models suggested that the stars in our Milky Way Galaxy moved in banana-like orbits, researchers have now discovered that they probably move in peanut-shell or figure of eight-shaped orbits.
China will land its first probe on the moon in early December which will deploy a buggy to explore its surface, an official said on Tuesday, marking a major milestone in the country's space ambitions.
Thanksgiving is a time for family, for feasting, and for gratitude in the United States. It is also a time when the nation's transportation network is clogged with travelers.
Astronomers are learning a little bit more about the fiery drama of star birth and death with a new, spectacular image from ESO's Very Large Telescope. They've captured a picture of the Large Magellanic Cloud, an object that's actively forming new stars in regions that are so bright that some can ev...
Google Earth images of large fish traps in the Persian Gulf coast indicate that the amount of fish caught could be six times more than what is reported officially, according to a new finding by Canadian researchers.
Mission controllers have confirmed that a small satellite launched from the International Space Station last week has successfully entered its orbit.
Comet ISON is now only days away from our Sun, and it may not make it at this rate. NASA has announced that new data may show that the "comet of the century" could have started to break apart in a dramatic fashion.
Astronomers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics have found out that in a remnant of a supernova a reverse shock wave that racing inwards at the speed of 1000 Mach is what is actually heating the remnant and triggering it to release X-ray light.
