New NASA satellite images have shown that there's been a huge reduction of air pollution across the country over the past decade.
While space may seem empty, it's not. Instead, it flows with electric activity that may be able to impact space missions. Now, NASA wants to learn a bit more about the electrical environment of space as they begin plans to send humans to a nearby asteroid.
Scientists have found that the sun's atmosphere, called the corona, is even larger than thought and extends about five million miles above the sun's surface.
Astronomers have uncovered a new clue when it comes to understanding mysterious dark matter. They've used ESA and NASA high-energy observatories in order to learn a bit more about the elusive ingredient of our universe.
Astronomers have discovered new clues when it comes to the hunt for dark matter. They've created supercomputer simulations that show the evolution of our "local universe" from the Big Bang to the present day.
A team of international scientists have discovered a distant galaxy that consists of three closely orbiting supermassive black holes that is more than four billion light years away.
Astronomers have accomplished a startling feat by using the AKARI orbiting observatory. They've created the first large-scale maps of ice material where stars are forming, challenging the conventional ideas about how water forms in space.
NASA Mars rover Curiosity is still trekking across the Red Planet, traversing the Gale crater. After an entire Martian year on the planet, though, the rover is now shedding more light on the ancient glaciers that once covered the crater.
The most precise measurement to date of the strength of gravitational interactions between distant galaxies have shown perfect consistency with General Relativity's predictions.
Astronomers have made some new and surprising discoveries in the first images taken by the Dark Energy Survey (DES). They've spotted rare, superluminous supernova that erupted in a galaxy located 7.8 billion light years away.
We all know that Earth can have a spell of bad weather, but did you know that our sun can have the same? Now, scientists have taken a closer look at this bad weather, revealing a bit more about the processes that shape our nearest star.
