The change of seasons on Titan is creating new cloud patterns at Titan's south pole.
What do manned missions to Mars and marijuana have in common? Well it seems that NASA’s only way to get to Mars is by getting high and now a former NASA scientist is looking to apply his life-support expertise to marijuana growing.
Mars may have lost much of its original atmosphere, but what's left remains quite active, recent findings from NASA's Mars rover Curiosity indicate.
Visible as a small, sparkling hook in the dark sky, the beautiful object below snapped by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is known as J082354.96+280621.6, or J082354.96 for short.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has broken its own record in the quest to find the furthest supernova of the type used to measure cosmic distances.
Astronomers from the University of Maryland at College Park (UMCP) and Lowell Observatory have deployed NASA's Swift satellite to explore comet C/2012 S1 (ISON), which may become one of the most dazzling in decades when it rounds the sun later this year.
NASA researchers recently traveled to Turrialba Volcano, near San Jose, Costa Rica, to fly a Dragon Eye unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) into the volcano’s sulfur dioxide plume and over its summit crater, to study Turrialba’s chemical environment.
One of my all-time favorite science fiction series is Star Trek The Next Generation. And to be honest, I've always preferred the episodes where the holodeck played a major role in the storyline.
A recently completed analysis of data from NASA's Cassini spacecraft suggests that Saturn's moons and rings can best be described as gently worn vintage goods from around the time of our solar system's birth.
NASA's Operation IceBridge scientists have kicked off another season of research activity over Arctic ice sheets and sea ice - with the first of a series of science flights from Greenland completed this past Wednesday.
35 years after its momentous launch, Voyager 1 appears to have travelled beyond the influence of the Sun and exited the heliosphere.
NASA scientists have determined that electrically charged lunar dust near shadowed craters can get lofted above the surface and jump over the shadowed region - essentially bouncing back and forth between sunlit areas on opposite sides.
Galaxies have been known to take numerous forms. Indeed, elliptical blobs, swirling spiral arms, bulges, and disks are all known components of the wide range of galaxies astronomers have observed using telescopes like NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
While performing an extensive X-ray survey of our galaxy's central regions, NASA's Swift satellite spotted the previously unknown remains of a shattered star.
An analysis of a rock sample collected by NASA's Curiosity rover indicates ancient Mars could have supported living microbes long ago.
Northern latitudes are greening up, says a NASA-funded study, increasingly resembling the lusher latitudes of the south.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured a stunning image illustrating the blue bursts of hot young stars.
A team of astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has taken an important step closer to finding the "birth certificate" of an ancient star.
NASA has created a 3D reconstruction of ancient water channels below the surface of Mars, revealing evidence of a catastrophic flood in the last 500 million years.
The Curiosity ground team has been forced to switch the Mars rover to a redundant onboard computer, thanks to a memory problem.
