An Indian spacecraft may be orbiting the moon, but it's also gathering valuable data about other key players in our solar system.
The smaller a planet, the more difficult it is to spot — which is frustrating for scientists hoping to find Earth-like worlds.
NASA's long-awaited space weather mission is making scientists wait again — ironically, due to terrestrial weather.
NASA is continuing to take steps to encourage companies to explore space station developments, both on the International Space Station and beyond.
NASA hopes that the long-delayed launch of a space weather mission called ICON will finally occur tonight (Oct. 9) — but terrestrial weather concerns may scrub the flight.
The Nobel Prize in physics this year has gone to two very different research threads — and danced around some big societal issues, even as they celebrate distinguished work.
India's second-ever lunar orbiter arrived at the moon just over a month ago, and the probe's instruments have already begun sending home science data.
One of NASA's two hired rides to the moon's surface is tackling a host of milestones leading up to a July 2021 launch and looking ahead to future flights.
More than six months after canceling what would have been the first spacewalk conducted by a team of two all women, NASA has rescheduled the historic moment for Oct. 21.
This spring, scientists released the first-ever image of a black hole — but what they really want is to create a movie of a black hole.
An Earth-observing satellite called DSCOVR has been stuck in safe mode for three months, and its operators finally have a plan to reboot it — but not for another few months.
Take three of the most massive objects in the universe, smoosh them together, and the fireworks are sure to be astounding — and maybe, someday, scientists will see the collision.
NASA is funding more than a dozen technology projects that could aid exploration of the moon and Mars, focusing on issues including cryogenics, energy production and independent mobility.
It looks like just a barren moonscape of craters, but somewhere in this image is a hunk of metal and electronics that carried a country's hopes of lunar science.
Astronomers are only now getting the hang of spotting interstellar objects, space debris that fled another solar system to swing through ours.
The best view of today's crew launch turned out to be from the spacecraft's destination itself, the International Space Station.
A comet spotted at the end of August is officially an interstellar object, according to the International Astronomical Union.
Earth will soon lose a key tool in the fight to spot potentially hazardous asteroids — and NASA has decided to fund a custom-built replacement.
Today (Sept. 23) marks the first day of fall in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of spring in the Southern Hemisphere, and Google has made a charming doodle to celebrate the occasion.
The first country to land a spacecraft on the moon and the only country to do so since the Apollo era are teaming up for a lunar return.
Japan's asteroid-exploring spacecraft has practiced its last task before heading home — and it made a nifty image as well.
Even as its orbiter settles into work, India's hopes of resurrecting its moon lander are quickly evaporating as the country marks two weeks from its attempt to softly touch down on the lunar surface.
