NASA and the United States Postal Service released two new Forever 47-cent stamps commemorating the voyage to Pluto.
Last week, NASA was having a bit of trouble blowing up (inflating, not destroying) their BEAM inflatable space habitat much like a winded partier trying to blow up a raft over the holiday weekend. Now, they've gotten it to work, which means it's time to set about testing the habitat to make sure it's actually worth blowing up in the first place. Show More Summary

NASA's OSIRIS-REx is getting ready to launch, meet up with an asteroid, grab some rocks, then return home.
NASA has released a fresh mosaic of Pluto's surface stitched together from the highest resolution images captured by the spacecraft as it sped past the planetoid on July 14, 2015. The agency has accompanied the release with a video that...Show More Summary
In 2013, scientists using NASA’s Kepler space telescope discovered a system of five planets locked in an orbit around a star smaller and cooler than our Sun nearly 1,200 light-years from Earth. A team of astronomers has now posited, based on several computer simulations encompassing many possible...
Five year ago NASA launched the Juno space probe and it began its long journey to Jupiter.
Saturday's second attempt to expand the Bigelow module went smoothly.
NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) --- arguably one of the most anticipated and talked about pieces of space hardware ever conceived --- will certainly make observations of the ends of the universe that will likely shake cosmology to its core. Show More Summary
It took a couple of attempts, but over the weekend NASA successfully inflated the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) attached to the International Space Station (ISS). In case you weren't onsite with seven-plus hours to spare,...Show More Summary
The argument for panspermia – the idea that life exists throughout the universe and is transported and dispersed by asteroids, comets and spacecraft – just got a major boost from NASA. Yes, NASA. A new report confirms that the Rosetta spacecraft has detected the amino acid glycine...
If you're looking for a fun activity to add to your Memorial Day plans, here's an easy one: look up. According to NASA, Mars will be making its closest approach to Earth since 2005 on May 30th, coming within 46.8 million miles of our...Show More Summary
The Apollo landings were great, but without a follow-up plan NASA suffered.
NASA’s Kepler mission has discovered a planet 1,200 light-years away from Earth which may support active life.
"I definitely dreamed weightless...And then I would dream that way when I got home." -Cady Coleman, NASA astronaut
High-speed air travel is one step closer to offering hypersonic global transport thanks to the successful testing of a Mach 7 passenger jet engine. NASA and Australian developers are working on HiFIRE technology that would make global travel cheaper and quicker than ever before. Show More Summary
"These studies are providing increasingly sensitive results, slowly shrinking the box of parameters where dark matter particles can hide," said Alexander Kashlinsky, an astrophysicist at NASA Goddard. "The failure to find them has led to renewed interest in studying how...
World champion angler Scott Mackenzie and engineer Gary Savage, who worked on heat shields for NASA space shuttles, say they have made the first graphene fishing rod. Graphene is a form of carbon and is many times stronger than steel. … more ?
Astronauts aboard the International Space Station on Saturday inflated an experimental fabric module that may provide a less expensive and safer option for housing crews during long stays in space, a NASA TV broadcast showed. Designed and built by privately owned Bigelow Aerospace, the Bigelow...
