High-resolution satellite images reveal lava rivers spilling from the Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palma as the devastating eruption shows no signs of stopping.
The launch window for NASA's Lucy mission launch window opens on Saturday (Oct. 16). Here are some Lucy-inspired craft activities to keep you occupied until then.
The Lucy mission is scheduled to launch on Oct. 16, 2021, to study the unique Trojan asteroids, which orbit ahead of and behind the planet Jupiter.
Learn about the size, shape and composition of asteroids as well as their history, naming conventions, and plans to mine asteroids in the future.
Decades ago, Donald Johanson found fossils of an early hominin that would rewrite scientists' understanding of our species. Now, he'll watch a spacecraft named for the discovery blast off Earth.
Today (Oct. 15), Space Chat will explore what's new in space, including William Shatner's emotional spaceflight, China's second ISS launch and some amazing new space science!
New high-resolution satellite images reveal lava rivers spilling from the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Spanish island of La Palma as the devastating eruption shows no signs of stopping.
A meteorite that landed in British Columbia crashed through a roof and narrowly missed hitting a woman who was asleep in her bed at the time.
Mysterious radio signals may blast out from auroras on distant stars triggered by hidden planets, a new study finds.
The first-ever discovery of a planet orbiting a dead star suggests that some worlds in our solar system have a chance to survive the sun's violent demise some five billion years from now.
Spacecraft have visited most pockets of the solar system by now, but a new region is about to come under the robotic inspection: the two clumps of asteroids that flank mighty Jupiter in its orbit.
Scientists have used a new method to analyse the composition of ancient grains in meteorites with unprecedented accuracy to shed light on their mysterious origin.
Wigner crystals have been theorized for more than 80 years, but this is the first time the elusive crystals have been captured in an image.
A solar storm hit Earth and brought with it a spectacular light show visible as far south as New York.
A cargo ship carrying the $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope arrived in French Guiana on Tuesday (Oct. 12), wrapping up a 16-day ocean voyage that covered 5,800 miles (9,300 kilometers).
Satellites have observed the intensifying eruption on the Spain-owned island of La Palma over the weekend as new streams of lava spilled out of the Cumbre Vieja volcano after its crater collapsed.
The new satellite is the first designed and built by the Australian Research Council Training Centre for Cubesats, UAVs, and their Applications (or CUAVA for short).
