Scientists have developed a new method for measuring the mass of pulsars, which are highly magnetized rotating neutron stars that are formed from the remains of massive stars after they explode into supernovae.
NASA has revealed its five science selections for refinement during the next year as a first step in choosing one or two missions for flight opportunities as early as 2020.
Preparing for long-distance space travel is going to be difficult for the human body.
NASA's Dawn spacecraft is revealing a bit more about the dwarf planet, Ceres.
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.
Earth-like plants may actually have magnetic fields, which may aid chances for life. Scientists have discovered that these planets orbiting close to small stars have magnetic fields that protect them from stellar radiation and help maintain safe surface conditions.
NASA was able to see the escalation of Tropical Storm Marty along the coast of Mexico with the use of its RapidScat instrument, and they are able to determine what to expect with the storm.
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 zoomed in on some shrapnel from the remains of an exploding star.
Scientists may have developed a theory to explain why dark matter has evaded direct detection.
ESO's Wide Field Imager has captured a spectacular, new image of a rose-colored star forming region Messier 17.
This Sunday, make sure to look to the skies; you're in for a rare treat. There's going to be a total eclipse of the moon on the night of September 27 to 28, and it happens to also be the closest supermoon of 2015.
