NASA's Swift satellite recently detected a rising tide of high-energy X-rays from a source toward the center of our Milky Way galaxy.
NASA's Curiosity rover is getting ready to take its first scoop of Martian soil.
Astronomers have come up with their most accurate measurement yet of the Hubble constant, the rate at which the universe is expanding.
Since the beginning of August, NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has been exploring the Red Planet and learning as much as it can about the terrain.
NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has found evidence of an old streambed on the Red Planet.
NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has acquired stereo images of the moon in high resolution (0.5 to 2 meters/pixel) that provide highly detailed 3D views of the surface.
Astronomers have pieced together the deepest-ever view of the universe, peering back more than thirteen billion years.
The robotic arm of NASA’s Curiosity rover recently made contact with a Martian rock for the first time - analyzing the chemical elements inside of a rock dubbed "Jake Matijevic" by scientists.
Our Milky Way Galaxy is surrounded by an enormous halo of hot gas hundreds of thousands of light years across, and with as much mass as all the stars in the galaxy.
NASA scientists and engineers are eyeing the construction of a manned outpost that would hover in orbit above the far side of the moon.
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured a sharp image of NGC 4634, a spiral galaxy seen exactly side-on.
Recent images snapped by NASA's Dawn spacecraft confirm that volatile, or easily evaporated materials, have colored Vesta's surface in a broad swath around its equator.
NASA's Mars rover Curiosity is taking a break from its drive to Glenelg to examine a football-size rock with its robotic arm.
NASA scientists are zapping organics with lasers in an attempt to discover how life arose on Earth.
A Starship Enterprise-style warp drive could be a real possibility, according to a non-profit group of scientists and engineers.
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.
