Space researchers across the world are devising effective methods to safeguard astronauts in space from high-energy radiations.
Russian scientists were able to successfully calculate the concentration of dark matter in the universe just after the Bing Bang happened.
A scientific balloon, the size of football-field was launched above Antarctica towards the stratosphere where it will study the sun and data on extremely high-energy radiation by solar flares.
In a study researchers found that a large number of earth-like planets are becoming uninhabitable due to harsh amounts of radiation.
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.
An Antarctic detector has found particles from beyond our galaxy. The detector has found neutrinos that travelled to Earth from space.
Astrophysicists have created a new method for calculating the effect of Rayleigh scattering on photons, potentially allowing researchers to better understand the formation of the universe.
A cold cosmic mystery may have been solved. The Cold Spot, which is a larger-than-expected unusually cold area of the sky in the map of radiation leftover from the Big Bang, may finally have an explanation.
Scientists have conducted an analysis of data from the MATROSHKA experiment, the first comprehensive measurements of long-term exposure of astronauts to cosmic radiation, and have found that the cosmos may be less hostile to space travelers.
Using an experiment carried into space on a NASA suborbital rocket, astronomers have discovered a diffuse cosmic glow that appears to be more light than what's normally produced by known galaxies.
When it comes to sending a man to Mars, NASA is faced with a host of challenges. Now, scientists have found that cosmic rays may threaten future deep-space astronaut missions with hazardous radiation.
Understanding cosmic rays is an important part of understanding dark matter. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at these rays, shedding light into the nature of the excess of positrons observed in the flux of cosmic rays.
