Famously proposed by Arthur C Clarke, a space elevator is a little closer to reality.
Astronomers have discovered a gigantic assembly of galaxies located almost seven billion light-years from Earth.
Russia is planning to build a nuclear-powered spacecraft for a manned mission to Mars.
Astronomers have observed the oldest and most distant object yet, a gigantic stellar explosion known as a Gamma Ray Burst (GRB).
The maiden test flight of NASAs next-generation launch vehicle, Ares I-X has been scrubbed for today (Tuesday) due to adverse weather conditions at the Cape. Flight Director Ed Mango is currently meeting with his senior staff to decide if a second attempt will be made tomorrow or Thursday.
NASA has photographed night falling over Saturn's entire ring system, an event which happens only once every 15 years.
NASA has launched a free iPhone application that allows users to
easily access videos, images and news updates published by the space
The most distant - and oldest - galaxy cluster yet has been discovered, beating the previous record holder by about a billion light years.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is looking for willing guinea-pigs for an eighteen-month Mars mission. The catch? It's just a simulation.
A NASA scientist has sought to dispel hysterical rumors that claim an
imaginary traveling planet known as Nibiru will destroy the Earth in
Researchers at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) said today that
they'e discovered 32 more planets - or exoplanets as they're called.
NASA’s Lunar CRater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) did indeed kick up the hoped-for debris plume, and generated useful data.
While mapping the solar system's edge for the first time, NASA's Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX), spacecraft has discovered a 'space ribbon' two billion miles long.
Rather than just creating black holes that would wipe out the earth, or at least turn it into a larger version of Detroit, the Large Hadron Collider could help develop a hyperdrive which would allow spacecraft to approach the speed of light.
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has discovered an enormous ring around Saturn - by far the largest of the giant planet's many rings.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is looking to buy a Russian spacecraft for sending space tourists into orbit.
We may like to moan about the weather on this planet, but at least it doesn't rain rocks. It's not so on Corot-7b, though, where simulations indicate that pebbles condense out of the air and rain into lakes of molten lava below.
Watch out, space travelers: galactic cosmic rays have hit their highest levels since the space age began.
Just a week after NASA reported evidence that there was probably water on the moon, India's Chandrayaan-1 moon mission has actually found some.
Researchers have created the first full-star simulation of the hours preceding the largest thermonuclear explosions in the universe.
