Two astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) are currently going for an early Saturday morning stroll high above the Earth in an effort to identify and fix the space station's ammonia leak discovered Thursday.
Scientists have discovered distant stars that appear to have been polluted by space debris. The pair of dead stars can be found in a cluster about 150 light years from Earth.
According to new research, water found deep inside the Earth and the moon may have originated from the ancient meteorites. Some scientists now believe that water already existed on Earth prior to the impact that created the moon, and subsequently, the moon would've begun with a portion of that supply.
Space Mountain in California has reopened after a contractor fell off the ride's roof.
Saturn will reach its opposition point on Sunday, Apr. 28 in what is expected to be the best view of the ringed-planet in six years.
If you haven't had the chance to see the Lyrid meteor shower this year, or couldn't see anything because you live in less than optimal viewing conditions, don't worry.
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, the country's first commander of the International Space Station, is the inspiration for the newly launched interactive space school website created by the National Film Board of Canada, or NFB, called NFB Space School.
The NASA Antares rocket made its maiden voyage Sunday when it was launched off the coast of Virginia at 5 p.m. ET as part of the agency's test mission.
This has been a great week for science (when isn't it?), but there were a number of new developments that were especially exciting. Here are four of the most interesting.
On Friday, April 19, a Russian experiment saw a group of animals being launched into orbit for a month-long project that aims to find out how space travelling affects living creatures.
The new animal astronauts launched into orbit Friday atop a Russian-built Soyuz 2 rocket that lifted off from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, in Central Asia. The rocket carried the Bion-M1 space capsule, which is expected to spend a month in orbit, flying 357 miles above Earth.
If the latest data coming in from space is correct, it looks like NASA scientists are now able to tell that the largest moon of Saturn, known as Titan, is in for a long fall-seven years long.
A NASA funded research project at the University of Washington is working on a "fusion powered rocket." If successful, the rocket could potentially send spacecraft to Mars in just 30 days.
Awe-inspiring and eye-pleasing as they may be, the arms of spiral galaxies have remained a luminescent mystery to scientists for quite some time. New detailed computer simulations, however, are revealing more about spiral galaxies' arms, including the fact that they aren't as transient as previously thought, and that once formed, they sustain themselves.
Supernovae, one of the most powerful pieces of artistry in the heavens, have long been shrouded in mystery despite their relatively bright nature. A new study published in the Astrophysical Journal states that we knew even less about them than we thought - there are three types of supernovae, not just two.
