Scientists hope CuSP will pave the way for a network of weather stations in interplanetary space.
For practically all of human existence, we've been fascinated by our closest celestial neighbor, incorporating it into myth, fantasy and scientific research.
Exoplanet images might be contaminated by the light from their neighbors, a new study suggests, but scientists are learning how to remove the effects of these photobombers.
The OMOTENASHI mission is the only secondary payload on Artemis 1 that will have a controlled landing on the surface of the moon.
NASA's coming megarocket launch isn't just going to the moon, it's going far beyond that — some of its secondary payloads far, far beyond.
Scientists will study the effects of radiation on yeast in preparation for long-duration crewed missions to deep space.
Scientists studied the trajectory and debris field of asteroid 2008 TC3 to determine which specific parts of the space rock made it down to the Earth's surface.
Students at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands are developing the world's smallest and lightest moon rover, called Lunar Zebro.
The Lunar IceCube and Lunar Polar Hydrogen Mapper (LunaH-Map) missions will search the moon for water using two different techniques.
A prototype of the lunar rover demonstrated its capabilities in navigating the moon's challenging terrain.
NASA's Aqua satellite photographed plumes of dust being drawn from Africa's Sahara Desert and sent across the Atlantic towards the United States and the Caribbean.
The Hubble Space Telescope has imaged globular cluster NGC 6638, located in the constellation Sagittarius.
As the Mars rover traverses the planet, it's come across pieces of its entry, landing, and descent hardware.
Curiosity landed on Mars on Aug. 5, 2012, with one main goal: to determine whether the planet was once habitable. In 10 years, it has answered that question and many others.
The runaway star is dashing across the galaxy at more than 100,000 mph, thanks to a massive explosion that happened more than a million years ago.
Researchers suggest we may be able to use gravitational lensing to amplify radio waves, allowing us to listen in on communication signals passing through our solar system.
Scientists have measured how fast a supermassive black hole is spinning, and the result might give us a clue about how the giant formed.
The Astrophysics Stratospheric Telescope for High Spectral Resolution Observations at Submillimeter-wavelengths (ASTHROS) will study an unusual "star-killer" phenomenon.
The moon is covered by impact craters large and small, evidence of a violent history of bombardment by celestial bodies like comets and asteroids. But these craters only record some of lunar history.
The blobs are irregular groups of young blue stars thought to have formed in a galactic collision that scientists liken to a belly flop.
The James Webb Space Telescope's powerful infrared instruments will be trained on three types of comets, potentially providing insight into the solar system's early life.
For its last international deployment, the aircraft returns to Christchurch for a seventh and final time.
One of the instrument's early programs includes performing spectroscopy on stellar nursery NGC 133 to spot the small, dark celestial bodies.
The Europa Clipper mission, due to launch in 2024, was originally supposed to crash into Jupiter, but there's been a change of plans.
