The James Webb Space Telescope and the now-retired SOFIA telescope, impressive as they may be, have hit their limits when it comes to studying Psyche.
Distant galaxies that existed a few hundred million years after the Big Bang are brighter than expected in JWST images because they were experiencing bursts of intense star formation.
Two new infrared mosaics of the Orion Nebula showcase the JWST's abilities while revealing new insights into this familiar star-forming region.
"For years, he had the field of planetary formation, which he had created, virtually to himself. Most Soviet colleagues were skeptical and uninterested; his research appeared so speculative, so far removed from any evidence."
NASA will extend the New Horizons mission through 2028 or 2029, allowing the spacecraft to continue studying its exotic environs far from the sun.
Based on the valuable scientific contributions microphones have made aboard the Perseverance Mars rover, it's time to turn up the volume on microphones for extra-planetary exploration.
For years, experts haven't agreed on whether Venus' lightning is truly lightning. New data from NASA's sun-kissing spacecraft may have settled the debate.
Reference See the phase of the moon tonight and the rest of the moon phases for 2023, and when you can see them.
The shell galaxy NGC 3923's symmetrical onion-like layers, that extend 150,000 light-years across space, appear in a new photo from the Dark Energy Camera.

Astronomers worry that an impending future of widespread satellite constellations could darken our bridge to the stars.
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has spotted a distant supernova that appears three times in the same photo. The new observations could help solve one of the universe's biggest inconsistencies.
A new long exposure image from the European Southern Observatory captures stars as they travel overhead, creating what is known as star trails with the help of bright laser guide star beams.
NASA's Perseverance rover captured video of a dust devil moving along the western rim of Mars' Jezero Crater on Aug. 30, 2023.
After surviving its closest approach to the sun, Comet Nishimura was buffeted by a possible coronal mass ejection that briefly blew its tail away. The rare event was captured by a NASA spacecraft.
Two decades of Hubble Space Telescope data reveal the stunning threads of a dead star's leftovers.
For the first time, astronomers have directly imaged the faint glow of the diffuse cosmic web that stretches throughout the known the universe.
The James Webb Space Telescope has snapped a stunning image of a perfectly formed Einstein ring, which is also the most distant gravitationally lensed object ever detected.
A supernova that recently exploded in the Pinwheel Galaxy has revealed hitherto unknown information about the final days of the star that exploded.
