The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York City is hosting a movie night that's out of this world on Friday (June 21).
NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft inched closer still to an asteroid called Bennu, breaking the record it set previously — but the real reward is the stunning photographs the probe has captured since.
NASA has so many spacecraft at Mars that it's a challenge to communicate with them all, but technology being launched later this month could eliminate that problem in the future.
It was always going to be expensive, but NASA's first cost estimate for the agency's push to land humans on the moon by 2024, is finally here — and it's surprisingly cheap.
When the solar system decided it liked Saturn and wanted to put a ring on it, it put together the most stunning, complex puzzle ring possible.
Next year, NASA will launch a new Mars rover, one that is equipped to determine whether the Red Planet ever hosted life — but the craft could also determine how violently Martian volcanoes erupted.
There's something very weird, and very dense, under the surface of the moon's South Pole-Aitken basin, new research suggests.
NASA has chosen the first companies that will ferry its instruments to the moon as part of the Artemis program — and with those selections come hints of where the contracted landers will touch down.
As part of its new plan to encourage commercial use of the International Space Station, NASA is opening the orbiting facility to up to two private astronauts per year, the agency announced today.
Astronomers have spotted a ridge of radio emissions 10 million light-years long joining two galaxy clusters that are slowly colliding with each other.
The International Astronomical Union (IAU) is voicing concerns about the risk Starlink and other planned massive satellite constellations in low Earth orbit pose to astronomy.
Six decades ago, a magnificent red splotch spread across the sky — and now, scientists think that by piecing together footage of the event, they better understand even older auroras.
NASA has released a stunning pair of images taken by the Spitzer Space Telescope, an instrument the agency will be shutting down on Jan. 30, 2020.
Let's be very clear: No one is suggesting that Martians feast on pasta during a Red Planet all-you-can-eat buffet.
NASA has picked Astrobotic, Intuitive Machines and Orbit Beyond to build private moon landers to fly science experiments to the moon in 2020 and 2021.
Do you need a break? NASA has you covered with an incredible new time-lapse view of Earth taken from the International Space Station.
An instrument on board the International Space Station is painting the night skies with X-ray observations of the universe around us — and producing a stunning image in the process.
On May 28, 1900, the moon blotted out the sun in a celestial magic trick. Modern technology has allowed film experts to put the footage online, where — in a feat of time travel — you can watch it.
Astronomers have used a desert-based observatory to identify an exoplanet that falls in the middle of what scientists had dubbed the Neptunian Desert.
NASA has spent years working on two potential missions to crack the secrets of Jupiter's icy moon Europa — and both those projects are in trouble, according to an internal investigation.
The Intrepid Museum in New York City kicked off a summer of Apollo events on May 23 by honoring software engineer Margaret Hamilton with the institution's Lifetime Achievement Award.
Martian sand dunes are blowing in the wind — but slowly, and based on factors that don't affect sand movement here on Earth.
Sixty years ago today, a pair of female monkeys made history when they went to space and landed safely — but their story was only just beginning to get weird.
NASA wants to land humans on the moon in just five years — and the agency has chosen its first company to help the Artemis program build a lunar outpost for those astronauts: Maxar.
