For human civilization to survive, people must have access to the three basics: Food, water and shelter.
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.
Tying a smoke ring in a knot sounds impossible - but University of Chicago physicists have done something similar by creating a vortex knot for the first time, in a container of fluid.
New evidence of water in moon rock samples brought back by the Apollo mission is challenging the accepted view of how the moon formed.
Ridges in impact craters on Mars appear to be the fossilized remnants of underground cracks through which water once flowed.
Super-small particles of silicon react with water to produce hydrogen almost instantaneously, University at Buffalo researchers have discovered.
Researchers have developed a special treatment for cotton fabric that allows it to absorb large amounts of water from misty air and release it by itself as it warms.
A meteorite found in the Moroccan desert in 2011 appears to have originated in Mars' crust - and contains much more water than any Martian meteorite ever found before.
Clay minerals - rocks that usually form when water is present for long periods of time - cover much more of Mars than previously thought, say Georgia Institute of Technology scientists.
NASA scientists have spotted long, narrow gullies on the giant asteroid Vesta that they say may have been carved out by liquid water.
NASA’s Messenger spacecraft has found that water ice likely exists on the frozen poles of Mercury, the planet closest to the sun.
A study of water from the Martian interior shows that Mars was originally formed from similar building blocks to Earth, but evolved differently later on.
Astronomers have at last discovered a nearby Earth-like planet that could easily have liquid water - and life.
University of Arkansas researchers have come up with an explanation of how water on Mars could produce the flow patterns observed by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
The water found locked inside soil on the moon's surface derives from hydrogen in the solar wind - meaning there could be water on other apparently-dry bodies in the solar system too.
A meteorite that landed in the Moroccan desert 14 months ago has been traced back to Mars.
Carnegie Mellon University spinoff Astrobotic Technology has now completed a full-size prototype of a solar-powered robot designed to search for water ice at the moon's poles.
Sony has suspended sales of its Android-based Experia Tablet S, after discovering a manufacturing flaw.
NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has found evidence of an old streambed on the Red Planet.
NASA's Dawn spacecraft has discovered evidence of water on the surface of the asteroid Vesta - but not much of it.
