Using data from NASA's Van Allen Probes, researchers have tested and improved a model to help forecast what's happening in the radiation environment of near-Earth space -- a place seething with fast-moving particles and a space weather system that varies in response to incoming energy and particles ...
NASA on Monday announced its plans of launching the 'Asteroid Data hunter' contest series in which the citizen scientists can participate to develop improved algorithms that can be implemented to track asteroids.
Three crew members from the International Space Station made a safe return to Earth on Monday, wrapping their 166 days mission in space.
MIT team proposes storing extra rocket fuel in space for future missions.
It may sound like science fiction but an Australian team is working on a project to zap orbital debris with lasers from Earth to reduce the growing amount of space junk that threatens to knock out satellites with a "cascade of collisions".
The hypothetical ninth planet argument might be finally put to rest after NASA’s Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) scanned the outer reaches of the solar system and returned no information about another planet’s existence.
Four new mysterious atmospheric man made gases have been discovered by international scientists, all of which are destroying the protective ozone layer, according to a new finding.

Nearly 10 proposals have been selected for the study of identical twin astronauts. This major leap has launched human space life science research into a new era, said NASA in new report.
NASA confirmed that the astronomers failed to find evidence of 'Planet X' during the examination of the WISE data that scanned hundreds of millions of objects across the sky.
A team of astronomers got lucky and witnessed for the first time an asteroid breakup into smaller fragments in the vast space. The entire disintegration process was seen using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
