NASA has revealed that unknown understory fires are destroying several times more Amazon rainforest than has been lost through deforestation in recent years.
NASA Mars rover Opportunity isn't just on the move, it's also discovered a clay-rich rock that hints to the fact that water existed on the Red Planet in the past.
A NASA team delivered in May a sophisticated microwave radiometer specifically designed to overcome the pitfalls that have plagued similar Earth-observing instruments in the past.
Traveling from one alien world to another, Dawn is reliably powering its way through the main asteroid belt with its ion propulsion system.
The Mars rover Curiosity may not have found evidence of life, but it's definitely found evidence of water on the Red Planet. NASA scientists have revealed that the rover has found evidence that rivers once ran across the surface of Mars that were between an inch to nearly three feet deep.
NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has collected data and evidence that reveals an ancient streambed on Mars. The findings could hint at the possibility of life on the Red Planet in the past.
In the main belt between Mars and Jupiter, families of asteroids spin through space. Now, researchers have used NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) to make some new finds about these objects.
From a distance, most of the Saturnian moon Dione resembles a bland cue ball. Thanks to close-up images of a 500-mile-long (800-kilometer-long) mountain on the moon from NASA's Cassini spacecraft, scientists have found more evidence for the idea that Dione was likely active in the past. It could sti...
NASA Mars rover Curiosity has been trekking across the Red Planet since August. Now, you can see almost the entirety of the rover's mission in just over a minute on a time-lapse video.
Exotic neutron stars, magnetars were once thought to be relatively rare. Now, NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and other satellites have revealed that magnetars may be far more diverse and common than previously believed.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has revealed a new image of the Ring Nebula that shows the old, dying star's true shape.
NASA has released an image of the massive storm system that spawned the mile-wide tornado that slammed into Moore, Oklahoma. The system moved over the south central United States and was captured by various satellites in the area.
