"I never thought I would ever see such a measurement in my lifetime."
Having launched on Oct. 13, the Psyche spacecraft has been journeying to a metal asteroid reminiscent of Earth's core. It just snapped its first image.
A ghostlike dusty galaxy from the early universe might represent a whole population of hidden galaxies.
A monstrous dark patch, known as a coronal hole, recently appeared near the sun's equator. The temporary gap enables unusually fast solar wind to race toward Earth.
One of the biggest mysteries in cosmology is the rate at which the universe is expanding. One possible explanation: That we live in a giant void in space (an area with below average density).
NASA's Mars robots are back up to full speed on and around the Red Planet, after a two-week pause in commanding.
NASA has revealed a new false-color image of Alaska's Malaspina Glacier that highlights several recent findings about the massive ice mass.
Reference A radio galaxy is a type of galaxy with giant regions of radio emissions that reach far beyond its visible structure. We explore them in more detail here.
Due to the mind-blowing distances and speeds required, interstellar travel remains a major spaceflight challenge. But new research highlights yet another hurdle: Communication blackouts.
Reference See what moon phase it is tonight and find out when you can see the rest of the moon phases for 2023.
Pluto's 'almost twin' dwarf planet Eris has a rocky core blanketed by an icy shell, which appears to be flexing slowly.
A new NASA video explains how the Perseverance Rover may have collected its youngest rock sample yet from the Red Planet's Jezero Crater.
NASA's Chandra X-ray Space Telescope has spotted a "clutter" of rapidly spinning neutron stars called spider pulsars that are devouring surrounding stars.
A dark nebula, also known as "The Brick," was imaged by the James Webb Space Telescope.
Magnetic storms can create amazing auroras, but they also have the capacity to impact our power grid.
The upcoming Vera C. Rubin Observatory will help astronomers track stars ripped from their galaxies, revealing a cosmic fossil record to track the evolution of galactic clusters.
What is causing the structure of the dust to evolve, and where exactly the dust comes from, is still a mystery.
New research helps resolve the mystery surrounding strange long gamma-ray bursts, suggesting these blasts of high-energy radiation emerge from collisions of neutron stars that birth black holes.
Space mysteries We have rocky moons, ocean moons and ice moons, but where are all the gas moons?
Regular high-energy pulses of gamma-ray radiation emerging from around the Milky Way's central black hole may be coming from a blob of matter whipping around at 30% the speed of light.
