One of Aerospace's CubeSats captured a photo of the moon's shadow on Earth's surface during the solar eclipse that occurred on Nov. 3. This solar eclipse began at 11 a.m. UTC and lasted for about two hours, with the shadow of the moon tracing a thin path that began in the Atlantic near Bermuda, cros...
An advanced laser system offering vastly faster data speeds is now ready for linking with spacecraft beyond our planet following a series of crucial ground tests. Later this year, ESA's observatory in Spain will use the laser to communicate with a NASA Moon orbiter.
On the far reaches of Earth's moon, ice is locked in one of the solar system's coldest regions. Now, scientists have explained how galactic cosmic rays penetrating lunar soil can actually create molecular hydrogen from water ice.
A supermoon is coming your way this weekend, and will be spectacular sight for those that get a clear view of the night sky. The brightest and largest supermoon that's due to appear this year, this is one spectacle you don't want to miss.
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...
A telescope is set to launch to the moon in 2015 and will allow the public to go on the Internet and view the Earth from the lunar surface.
Is it possible that there are aliens on the Earth's moon? Scientists have recently discovered strange minerals at the centers of impact craters on the lunar surface.
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.
A Russian space representative explained details of Russia's lunar program in the U.S., which will already begin in 2 years and consist of 5 separate missions involving landers, drilling, cryogenic sample return and a long-range rover.
Researchers announced the discovery of tiny amounts of water in the moon rocks brought to Earth by the Apollo missions, which in turn could invalidate the current theory of how our Moon was formed in the first place.
Russia will start to build a robotic lunar base and plans to launch the first in a series of missions to the moon in 2015. Vladimir Popovkin, chief of Russia's Federal Space Agency Roscosmos, said on Tuesday that Luna-Glob will lift off from the Vostochny space port in Russia's Far East after severa...
