At the center of space exploration beats a heart of incredible technological marvels and innovation that inspires scientists and engineers to reach for the stars. See some of the wildest space tech concepts here, as well as technologies needed to ensure humanity's expansion across the solar system.
There's a galaxy not too far from our own that astronomers were very sure was shaped like an X, but a new, clearer radio telescope image shows that the galaxy is more like a stretched-out blob.
A new type of nuclear reactor designed to power crewed outposts on the moon and Mars could be ready for its first in-space trial just a few years from now, project team members said.
A new timelapse video shows the rocket gantry for Europe's newest booster, the Ariane 6, take its first test drive during a simulation of prelaunch rollout activities for future missions.

Using old-fashioned steam power, two cubesats executed the first coordinated maneuver in low-Earth orbit.
They may look like waffle-makers, but China's new rocket fins are cooking up something even more special: the ability to guide rockets to a safe zone after launch.
The launch of a Long March 2C from Xichang last week included a first use of grid fins by China to minimize the threat posed by the spent first stage to populated areas downrange.
The Planetary Society has declared mission success for LightSail 2 after the craft was observed raising its orbit with the power of sunlight alone.
A new space station experiment is testing whether would-be space miners can enlist some very small potential accomplices to do their grunt work.
