A NASA mission called APEP will launch three sounding rockets into the annular solar eclipse to measure changes in electric and magnetic fields, density, and temperature of the ionosphere.
Reference The exoplanets of TRAPPIST-1 are rocky worlds that orbit close to their red dwarf star, and at least three are in the habitable zone. Could they support life?
Scientists worldwide are already using artificial intelligence and machine learning to sort through huge amounts of data, suggesting that the future of astronomy belongs to AI.
NASA's OSIRIS-REx asteroid probe captured photos during the release of its return capsule last month, preserving the historic moment for posterity.
NASA has issued a request for "lunar freezer" designs that can safely store materials taken from the moon during planned Artemis program missions.
The European Southern Observatory's VLT Survey Telescope captured a beautiful new image of the rosy red emission nebula known as IC1284.
China's upcoming Xuntian, or Chinese Space Station Telescope (CSST), will orbit near the nation's Tiangong space station and provide high-definition panoramic views of the universe.
Reference See the phase of the moon tonight and the rest of the moon phases for 2023, and when you can see them.
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.
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.
Citizen science group 'Solar Patrol' will use a retired NASA telescope to study the sun during America's two upcoming solar eclipses.
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.
