The research may shed light on cosmic evolution.
The asteroid that crashed into Earth 66 million years ago unleashed a catastrophic series of events.
Today (Oct. 22), Space Chat will explore what's new in space, including "Dune" in space, a Martian blackout and SpaceX's Starship roaring to life.
A spacecraft that usually seeks new worlds saw a white dwarf suddenly switch "off" with a swift drop in brightness. Then it switched back on again.
An image captured last week by a European satellite shows an unusual early winter peat fire near Russia's town of Yekaterinburg, raging well past the end of the wildfire season.
Satellite megaconstellations are becoming a serious problem to 21st century astronomy akin to urban light pollution, and speedy action is needed to mitigate, a new report finds.
NASA's newest space telescope will face 29 'harrowing' days after launch as it makes its way to a deep-space destination nearly 1 million miles (1.6 million km) from Earth.
These are some of the last good looks we'll get at NASA's huge James Webb Space Telescope before it leaves this world forever.
In a new study, male mice exposed to simulated galactic cosmic radiation (GCR) — high-energy radiation in space more commonly known as deep-space radiation — experienced impaired spatial learning.
The detection of interstellar objects in the solar system has raised an interesting question: How much of the solar system is made of foreign material?
Plumes of hot gas and charged particles emitted by black holes drift across distances of hundreds of thousands of light years.
Astronomers may have for the first time detected evidence that a distant planet had its atmosphere partially blown away by a giant impact, a new study finds.
NASA has picked a new telescope to head into space, where it will peer out in search of the most powerful light emissions made in the universe.
The European Space Agency nearly lost its gamma-ray space telescope Integral last month when a charged particle disabled one of the reaction wheels that keep its solar arrays pointed at the sun.
Astronomers have solved a mystery that the Hubble Space Telescope first discovered nearly a decade ago. A pair of streaky objects actually appear that way thanks to a "ripple" in the fabric of space.
Scientists have imaged the whole globe of Uranus in the infrared part of the light spectrum for the first time, hoping to shed light on the planet's mysterious auroras and weird magnetic field
NASA telescopes have captured the colorful blast of a stellar explosion thousands of years ago, shedding new light on the evolution of such cosmic remains.
