NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has confirmed the hazards of space radiation. Sending astronauts to the Red Planet without a properly protected spacecraft could drastically increase their risk of cancer.
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.
Kepler may be down, but now NASA has another planet-hunting tool in mind. The space agency is preparing the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) observatory in order to follow in Kepler's footsteps, hunting for super-Earths and alien life.
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.
Orbiting Saturn is the massive moon, Titan. Now, NASA's Cassini spacecraft has peered through the thick orange clouds surrounding the moon in order to help create the first full topographical map of its surface using radar measurements.
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.
NASA is onboard for creating a 3D printer--for food. What sort of food will it print, you ask? Apparently the first item on the menu is pizza.
NASA's Mars rover Curiosity, the vehicle that's trekking across the Red Planet in hopes of making novel discoveries, has officially drilled into its second rock. The sample, once analyzed by the rover's onboard laboratory, could reveal new insight into the origins of Mars.
