The Curiosity rover’s extended stay on Mars has proven to be one of NASA’s biggest recent success stories. More than seven years after its arrival at the Bradbury landing site on the Martian surface, Curiosity has just sent back the largest, most detailed panoramic image ever of the Red Planet’s landscape … along with an intriguing new discovery that […]

We may have lost an Opportunity on Mars, but that isn’t holding Curiosity back. After hanging out at Vera Rubin Ridge on Mount Sharp since 2017, NASA’s Curiosity rover is crawling over the dusty terrain of the Red Planet again — but not before the Curiosity team released a panoramic video that will really make you think you’re standing right […]

These colonies would support all manner of ecosystems. Blue Origin wants to build the tools to help humanity explore the solar system, ultimately expanding life out to take advantage of more resources and support over one trillion people. Jeff Bezos, founder of both the space-faring firm and internet retailer Amazon, explained at a Thursday event […]

Forget violin concertos in G major – the performances of the future could take place in zero-G. Elon Musk, whose firm SpaceX is building a rocket that could transport up to 100 people in space at once, has a vision for future space activities. On Wednesday, the CEO shared an image with his 31 million Twitter followers […]

AN ASTEROID capable of causing global destruction if it hits will approach our planet tomorrow afternoon, the US space agency NASA has found. NASA’s automated asteroid tracking systems have their eyes on a potentially cataclysmic rock dubbed 163373 (2002 PZ39), which is estimated to measure up to about 3,280ft (one kilometre) across. The asteroid is barreling through space at speeds of […]

Liftoff is set for 10:05 a.m. EST (1505 GMT). The private spaceflight company SpaceX will launch 60 new Starlink internet satellites to join its growing megaconstellation in orbit today (Feb .17) and you can watch the action live online.  A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch the fifth batch of Starlink satellites into orbit from the company’s pad at Space Launch […]

String theory is a purported theory of everything that physicists hope will one day explain … everything.  All the forces, all the particles, all the constants, all the things under a single theoretical roof, where everything that we see is the result of tiny, vibrating strings. Theorists have been working on the idea since the 1960s, […]

Jupiter appears to have more water than anyone expected. Newly released data from NASA’s Juno probe shows that water may make up about 0.25% of the molecules in the atmosphere over Jupiter’s equator. While that doesn’t sound like much, the calculation is based on a prevalence of water’s components, hydrogen and oxygen, three times more than at the […]

WASP-76 b may be the most extreme exoplanet we know of. There’s a new contender for the “most exotic exoplanet” title. The crown may have rested for a while now on the head of HD 189733 b, a cobalt-blue alien world where molten-glass rain whips sideways through the air at up to 5,400 mph (8,790 km/h). But […]

All five remaining instruments on NASA’s venerable Voyager 2 spacecraft are back to gathering science data after power overuse in late January interrupted the probe’s operations. NASA made the announcement yesterday (March 3), over a month after the incident occurred. Troubleshooting for the spacecraft is a slow process because of its distance from Earth; it takes 17 hours for […]
