Scientists find that Mars, not Earth, shakes up some near-Earth asteroids.
NASA's Hubble Space telescope spots never- before-seen mysterious object in the asteroid belt of our solar system. It captured an unusual looking asteroid radiating six come-like tails similar to a rotating lawn sprinkler.
The United Nations (UN) has adopted several recommendations of a new asteroid defence plan, the first steps in preventing Earth from being struck by an asteroid.
A new finding claims that, Earth's water most likely came from an asteroid collision some 4.6 billion years ago, shortly after the solar system first took shape.
Following the United Nations General Assembly adoption of a suite of proposals to create an international decision-making mechanism for planetary asteroid defense, the Association of Space Explorers issued a challenge to the global community to take the next vital steps to confront the threat from d...
A new look at the early solar system introduces an alternative to a long-taught, but largely discredited, theory that seeks to explain how biomolecules were once able to form inside of asteroids.
Potential asteroid impact on Earth can have disastrous consequences. In order to prevent such collisions, earthbound space objects must be deflected. This can be accomplished using a space probe to impact the asteroid.
This graphic shows the orbits of all the known Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs), numbering over 1,400 as of early 2013.
NASA astronomers have discovered more than 10,000 asteroids and comets that can pass near Earth. The astronomers have claimed to spot the 10,000th near-Earth object that is an asteroid dubbed 2013 MZ and was discovered on 18 June 2013.
NASA has announced the Asteroid Grand that focuses on hunting all asteroids that pose a threat to human populations. This challenge not only identifies dangerous near-Earth asteroids but will also design a way to deal with these asteroids.
A small asteroid named 2013 LR6 past the Earth four times last Saturday as it took a path between the Earth and moon, reports HNGN.
