We may have some new answers when it comes to Einstein's gravity theory. A strange stellar pair, which includes a massive neutron star in orbit with a companion white dwarf star, has allowed researchers to put two competing theories of gravity to the test.
Space weather, caused by the extremely energetic dynamics of the enormous fusion fire of our Sun, can have big effects on our technological infrastructure -- mostly on satellites orbiting around Earth, but in extreme cases even on the electrical and electronical infrastructure on the planet's surfac...
Russia, we have a problem. An unmanned Russian cargo spacecraft that launched toward the International Space Station yesterday encountered a serious issue. It failed to deploy an antenna used for navigation.
Galaxies can sometimes churn out stars at a frantic pace, creating a mass of activity known as a starburst. Now, researchers have examined 20 nearby galaxies and have found that these starbursts have a significantly greater effect on their host galaxy than once thought.
Astronomers have released a new image of the red supergiant named Betelgeuse, revealing its superheated hot spots.
We may find a planet that's capable of supporting life within the decade. Researchers have discovered that the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) set to be launched in 2018 could conceivably detect oxygen and water in the atmosphere of an Earth-like planet after only a few hours of observation time.
It seems like NASA's rovers have something in common with Seth from the movie, Superbad: They like drawing pictures of penises. Unlike Seth, though, the rovers have taken their particular phallic sketch out of this world--all the way to Mars.
NASA has launched three smartphones into orbit as a part of its low-budget, experimental satellite program that uses off-the-shelf components.
According to the astronomers, the galaxy converts fuel into stars with almost 100 percent efficiency. Located some 6 billion light years from Earth, this may be the most environmentally-friendly galaxy ever spotted.
Eagerly awaited and spectacular comet C/ISON was now imaged with the Hubble Space Telescope on April 10 using the Wide Field Camera 3 on its approach towards the sun, when the comet was at about the distance of Jupiter: 621 million kilometers from the Sun and 634 million kilometers from the Earth.
This month's pink moon will be during the night of a lunar eclipse. Unfortunately, you may not be able to see it unless you live in Europe.
