NASA's Lucy spacecraft will be hurled into space on a 12-year expedition to study a record number of asteroids.
The agreement will strengthen a relationship related to space exploration that dates back more than 50 years, says NASA Administrator Bill Nelson.
An article published in Nature suggests six galaxies discovered with the cooperation of the Hubble Space Telescope and the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) died off because they ran out of cold hydrogen gas ‘needed to make stars.’
NASA's Perseverance collected the first of numerous mineral samples from the surface of the Red Planet that may have trapped tiny bubbles of ancient Martian water.
The sample was collected on September 1, but NASA was initially unsure whether the rover had successfully held onto its precious cargo, because initial images taken in poor light were unclear.
NASA mission drills hole on Mars as the first step of a sampling process that is expected to take about 11 days, with the aim of looking for signs of ancient microbial life that may have been preserved in ancient lakebed deposits.
The Europa Clipper mission will launch in October 2024 on a Falcon Heavy rocket from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, with the total contract worth $178 million.
NASA's Shane Kimbrough and France's Thomas Pesquet tackled the second in a series of powerful solar wings that should keep the space station running the rest of this decade, as space tourism ramps up with visitors beginning in the fall.
One mission, named DaVinci Plus, will analyse the thick, cloudy Venusian atmosphere. The other, called Veritas, will seek a geologic history by mapping the rocky planet’s surface.
The Mars probe and rover are expected to spend around three months taking photos, harvesting geographical data and collecting and analysing rock samples.
The Gurcay brothers have developed a unique technique to produce nanosilver developed through natural methods.
The spacecraft, which began its two-year journey home on Monday, holds between 200 grams and 400 grams of asteroid chunks — the biggest cosmic haul for the US since the Apollo moon rocks.
