NASA's Mars helicopter Ingenuity has aced yet another Red Planet flight, the little chopper's 16th sortie.
Sometimes, spacecraft must be destroyed anyway. And sometimes, it takes destroying a spacecraft to get the maximum science out of a mission.
So you've heard that an asteroid could slam into Earth wreaking all sorts of havoc, but just how many space rocks out there threaten our planet?
For billions of years, chaos and the laws of physics have governed our solar system; next year, humans will take the reins and purposefully, in a calculated strike, adjust the orbit of an asteroid.
The seven astronauts currently living and working on the International Space Station were forced to shelter in their transport vehicles when the station passed uncomfortably closed to orbital debris.
Someday, tucked away gathering dust in a nondescript warehouse, there will perhaps be a spacecraft waiting to be called to the launch pad, even as its builders pray it never flies.
NASA may be homing in on the glitch that kept a massive solar array on its new asteroid-bound spacecraft from properly deploying.
NASA has lofted countless spacecraft into the solar system, but a mission launching in late November will attempt a unique feat: to slam into a tiny asteroid and slightly speed up its orbit.
A powerful solar storm could interfere with power grids, satellites and radio signals — although it might also have sent the beautiful northern lights incredibly far south.
It's been a busy few days for our sun, which has produced three of the outbursts that scientists call coronal mass ejections since Monday (Nov. 1).
NASA is still working to understand a glitch that took instruments on a venerable space observatory out of commission.
Stellar explosions are messy affairs, so two consecutive supernovas in the same galaxy are bound to leave a mark.
NASA's Mars helicopter is ready to make its first flight attempt after a two-week communications blackout caused by the sun's being directly between Earth and the Red Planet.
The risk of collisions in space, the fate of the United States in orbit after the space station retires and continuing debates over NASA's path back to the moon dominated a two-hour hearing.
Astronaut Nicole Stott's new book "Back to Earth" chronicles her experience on the International Space Station and how lessons there could help people on Earth.
South Korea's first launch of its new rocket, dubbed Nuri seemed to go smoothly — until engineers determined that the mock payload hadn't been delivered to the proper orbit for unknown reasons.
Days after NASA's new mission to a mysterious group of asteroids launched, spacecraft personnel continue battling an issue with one of the vehicle's two massive solar arrays.
NASA's newly launched mission bound for the Trojan asteroids has to address a small issue with its solar panels.
