The Progress supply ship was launched last night and arrived at ISS at 9.18 pm EDT (1.18 GMT, August 2). This was the first time that the same day docking was accomplish...
A team of international scientists have discovered an intense warming phase around 52 million years ago in drill cores obtained from the seafloor near Antarctica a region that has been important in climate research.
A new report released by the Tauri Group details the demand for suborbital reusable vehicles (SRVs) that are a new class of powered vehicles designed to cross the threshold of space-carrying cargo or people.
The Russian robotic space craft made its final departure from the international space station after spending several months attached to the orbiting outpost in a second attempt to test an updated space docking system.
Even after four decades, the US flags planted on the moon are still standing and casting shadows. This remarkable fact comes to light from images produced by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) that shows all flags standing except one posted by Apollo 11.

The field of robotics never fails to astonish us with their incredible creation. Most often they draw inspiration from the real world. And this time it the team from China's School of Chemical Engineering and Technology who have developed a microrobot being inspired by insects.
A team of British and Australian scientists has discovered an important method of how carbon is drawn down from the surface of the Southern Ocean to the deep waters beneath.
Huge landslides or avalanche are rare occurrences in the solar system but very common phenomenon on Saturn's third largest moon Lapetus. These are helping geologists in understanding landslides and earthquakes in other parts of the solar system.
