When I first saw this beautiful remote sensing image, I couldn't help but feel that I was looking at a painting by an abstract expressionist. Starting in the 1940s, abstract expressionists like Jackson Pollock and Clyfford Still "valued...Show More Summary
Astronomers learned to see beyond the Milky Way's glare into a hidden realm of faint galaxies.
Taking SETI more seriously means thinking expansively, but how do we evaluate the options? -- Read more on ScientificAmerican.com
Using a telescope in Australia, astronomers say they have glimpsed farther back in time than the Hubble Telescope to see what was happening when the first stars were forming.
Dr. Krauss, a leading figure in the “skeptics” movement, was placed on paid leave and barred from campus after a report was published by BuzzFeed.
Nokia and Vodaphone say they plan to put a high-speed cellular network on the moon. If recent history is a guide, don’t expect this to go exactly to plan.
NASA will fly you to the sun—or at least your name.
Jupiter's poles are blanketed by geometric clusters of cyclones and its atmosphere is deeper than scientists suspected.
Imagine an object moving at super-sonic speed. This object, as it moves through a medium, causes the material in the medium to pile up, compress, and heat up. The result is a type of shock wave, known as a bow shock.
With the unprecedented promise that the EU-supported EISCAT3D radar infrastructure holds for investigation into near-earth space phenomena, system accuracy and efficiency is paramount. The recently closed EISCAT3D_PfP project successfully demonstrated the viability of the initiative, launching it into the implementation phase.
Scientists have long observed an apparent gradient in the cosmic microwave background but have been unable to determine how much is real and how much is perceived. USC Dornsife researchers appear to have found a way to an answer.
It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Jules Verne!
This image was originally meant to track the movement of sand dunes near the North Pole of Mars, but what's on the ground in between the dunes is just as interesting!
This spectacular and unusual image shows part of the famous Orion Nebula, a star formation region lying about 1350 light-years from Earth. It combines a mosaic of millimetre-wavelength images from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter...Show More Summary
Astronomers have used NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to uncover a vast, complex dust structure, about 150 billion miles across, enveloping the young star HR 4796A. A bright, narrow, inner ring of dust is already known to encircle the star and may have been corralled by the gravitational pull of an unseen giant planet. Show More Summary
SpaceX is marking the 50th launch of a Falcon 9 rocket, its satellite-delivery workhorse.
Buckle up and pack your popcorn: we're in for some intergalactic fireworks, only not quite like we were expecting.
Comets which consist of two parts, like Chury, can form after a catastrophic collision of larger bodies. Such collisions may have taken place in a later phase of our solar system, which suggests that Chury can be much younger than previously assumed. This is shown through computer simulations by an international research group with the participation of the University of Bern.
When word got out that the Trump administration wanted to end government funding of the International Space Station by 2025, resistance to the idea was swift and forceful.
SpaceX is poised for the 50th launch of its signature Falcon 9 rocket early Tuesday, marking a swift ascent to a milestone many aerospace giants take far longer to attain.
