Uranus is a strange world, knocked on its side and with a lopsided magnetic field. Its moons may be even stranger.
Smashing a spacecraft into an asteroid isn't NASA's usual approach to planetary science, but it was certainly an opportunity nonetheless.
A week or two after a NASA spacecraft slammed into an asteroid, scientists have spotted something unexpected: The space rock has grown two tails.
NASA's newest space telescope is hard at work despite an ongoing instrument glitch and continuing small micrometeoroid strikes.

The DART spacecraft's tiny companion is ready to photograph a brand-new impact site Monday night (Sept. 26).
For NASA's DART spacecraft, the drama happens in space, but mission success relies on telescopes back on Earth.
When NASA's DART mission slams itself into an asteroid called Dimorphos, three different science spacecraft will be trying to watch the action.
Scientists expected that the lander would run out of power by the end of the summer, but InSight is still eking out science data and may for several months to come — potentially even into January.
Satellites are watching as Hurricane Fiona, currently a Category 1 storm, pummels Caribbean islands.
On Sept. 26, DART will slam headfirst into a small asteroid, the rare case when a spacecraft's destruction is the desired outcome.
