Two missions have taken a large step forward when it comes to understanding a bit more about the sun.
It turns out that America may be in for a total solar eclipse; it just happens to be two years from now. Researchers have announced that on Aug. 21, 2017, people in North America will witness one of nature's greatest sky shows.
There may be a surprising twist on how our solar system formed.
The Rosetta spacecraft is making its closest approach yet to the sun, riding along on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
Solar storms can impact our planet in big ways. Now, researchers have created new tools for predicting the arrival and impact of solar storms.
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.
What caused Earth to develop life and not Venus? Scientists have taken a closer look to find out why Earth managed to sustain life while Mars and Venus did not.
Could solar effects trigger birth defects on Earth? Scientists have taken a closer look at radiation from cosmic rays to see whether or not it could impact unborn children.
Astronomers may have discovered a Jupiter-like planet orbiting a sun-like star that could, potentially, signal other systems like our own solar system.
We may be in for a mini ice age. Scientists have taken a closer look at the sun's solar cycle and have found that solar activity may fall by 60 percent in the 2030s.
NASA's black hole telescope has captured an amazing picture of our sun.
