NASA's Juno spacecraft executed a deep space maneuver earlier today, with the burn occurring more than 298 million miles (480 million kilometers) away from Earth.
After four months aboard the International Space Station, three astronauts touched down safely in Kazakhstan early yesterday morning.
Astronomers have, for the first time, spotted planets orbiting sun-like stars in a crowded cluster - the best evidence yet that planets can form in dense stellar environments.
NASA's stalwart Opportunity rover has captured an image of the Martian surface that is puzzling scientists.
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured an image of galaxy NGC 7090. The galaxy is viewed edge-on from the Earth, meaning astronomers are unable to easily see the spiral arms, which are full of young, hot stars.
NASA's three stalwart mobile launcher platforms (MLP) are currently being revamped to better accommodate the space agency's next-generation launch vehicles.
NASA scientists will next week test whether a heat shield made from the soil of the moon, Mars or an asteroid could stand up to a plunge through Earth's atmosphere.
NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover has completed the delicate calibration of a robotic arm as it awaits further instructions in Gale Crater near the Martian equator.
The British government is reportedly looking for ways to offset the cost of cleaning up nuclear waste by finding commercial uses for what may be the world's largest stockpile of civil plutonium.
The human race hails its exploration of space as one of our crowning achievements, and that’s probably appropriate, since we really have no place there.
The human body is quite delicate when you think about it.
The center of the galaxy is not only a crowded place, it's blasted by shock waves, bathed in radiation and warped by owerful gravitational forces from the supermassive black hole at the region's heart.
Dark energy is real, say scientists who claim they've validated the disputed 2003 research that was seen as the first clear evidence for its existence.
An amateur astronomer in Dallas has filmed an enormous explosion on Jupiter which took place early on Sunday morning.
New research indicates that life might be able to survive on some of the odder exoplanets discovered so far - from scorching hot worlds with molten surfaces to freezing balls of ice.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has returned the first definitive evidence of carbon dioxide snowfalls on Mars - the only place this is known to happen anywhere in our solar system.
NASA's Mars Curiosity rover recently concluded a series of preparatory tests designed to calibrate precision movements by the rover's robotic arm which is used to deploy a wide variety of tools.
Volunteers in the Galaxy Zoo project have been helping to classify galaxies seen in hundreds of thousands of telescope images as spiral or elliptical - and have, along the way, found 26 which resemble the letters of the alphabet.
One of the most encouraging signs for those searching for evidence of early water on Mars has been the existence of clays. But a French-US team has now rained on that particular parade.
There could be seven times as many potentially habitable planets as previously believed, Scottish scientists have calculated.
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope recently snapped a stunning image of the center of globular cluster M 4.
