Astronauts are actually getting a chance to drink out of a specially designed cup in space.
NASA researchers assumed they saw snow in space, and decided to examine it further.
The NASA/ESA's Hubble Space Telescope recently detected a space image that seemed like the smoke ring for a halo. Hubble spotted two stars shining through the center of a ring of cascading dust, according to NASA researchers.
There may be an unusual component in the atmosphere of the famed Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko: oxygen.
It turns out that Rosetta's comet may not have always been just one object. Researchers have found that two comets collided at low speed in the early solar system to create the strangely-shaped Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
ESA's Rosetta spacecraft has detected argon on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko for the first time.
ESA's Rosetta spacecraft may reveal a bit more about how comets "stay alive" with their daily water-ice cycle. By learning a bit more about this cycle, researchers are learning a bit more about comets in general.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured a spectacular new image of the galaxy Messier 63, a cosmic sunflower swirling in the middle of space. Nicknamed the "Sunflower Galaxy," this object has spiral arms and millions of stars.
This image may look like something Van Gogh painted, but that's far from the truth. Taken by ESA's Planck satellite, this picture actually shows two Magellanic Clouds, among the nearest companions of our Milky Way galaxy.
The Rosetta spacecraft is making its closest approach yet to the sun, riding along on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
A comet is making quite the show before reaching its closest point to the sun. The Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko has blasted out a spectacular jet, which has been captured by the Rosetta spacecraft.
