A European collaboration aims to break through some of the technological barriers to the exploration of icy moons like Jupiter's Europa, using Antarctica as a proving ground.
Saturn, sixth planet from the sun, is the second largest planet in our solar system.
Using the James Webb Space Telescope, astronomers have observed the changing of seasons on Saturn. The ringed planet's northern summer is cooling as a 7.5-year-long autumn approaches.
The moon will have a close encounter with Saturn on Wednesday, Aug. 30 as the ringed gas giant sits just below the full Super Blue Moon.
Saturn will be directly opposite of the sun on Aug. 26 and 27, making this weekend a great time to observe the ringed gas giant.
Megastorms that rage across Saturn and last for centuries, shaking up the gas giant's deep atmosphere and driving ammonia rains that enrich lower layers.
One astrophysicist is suggesting we remove Saturn's status as a gas giant, saying the planet tried but didn't quite make the cut.
Some rivers on ancient Mars flowed for long enough stretches to create bona fide habitable environments on the Red Planet, a new study suggests.
The James Webb Space Telescope, humanity's most powerful eye in the sky, has captured some remarkable images in its first year of gazing deep into the universe.
Saturn's famous rings shine bright in an incredible new photo by NASA's James Webb Space Telescope, its first officially released shot of the gas giant.
The James Webb Space Telescope has captured some incredible raw images of Saturn for the first time, but you might have to wait a bit longer to see them in their full glory.
Saturn enters retrograde on June 17, shifting from its usual eastward movement to travel westwards through the constellations until early November.
For the first time, phosphorus — the rarest of six elements upon which life as we know it depends — has been found in a tiny ocean-bearing moon in our solar system.
Skywatchers can see the moon meet up with Saturn in the early hours of June 10 as the two bodies make a close approach in the night sky.
The James Webb Space Telescope has found a 6,000 mile-long plume of water squirting into space from Saturn's tiny moon Enceladus, creating a massive watery cloud in the planet's orbit.
The James Webb Space Telescope caught Saturn's icy moon Enceladus spraying a 'huge plume' of watery vapor far into space — and that plume may contain chemical ingredients for life.
Saturn's rings are surprisingly youthful and much younger than the gas giant planet itself, new research has revealed.
The conjunction and close approach of the moon and Saturn will be visible in the sky from the early morning until just after midday on Saturday, May 13.
Finding alien life just took a twist. A snake-shaped robot from NASA aims to climb the crumpled terrain of icy moons like Enceladus to search out microbes.
Saturn is once again the solar system's "moon king," snatching the crown back from Jupiter after the discovery of 62 new moons. Saturn now has a whopping 145 known satellites.
New research aims to shed light on the puzzling winds on Titan, Saturn's largest moon, whose mysterious weather patterns have puzzled astronomers for decades.
