They may look like remote-controlled toy trucks, but a troop of new NASA robots could one day race across distant planets as a sort of space exploration vanguard. The autonomous robots, which engineers have dubbed "swarmies," are much smaller than other NASA robots like the Mars rover Curiosity. Show More Summary
The moon has a distinctive smell. With NASA's six Apollo lunar landing missions between 1969 and the end of 1972, a total of 12 astronauts kicked up the powdery dirt of the moon, becoming an elite group later to be tagged as the "dusty...Show More Summary
Sorry, ET-lovers: That "fossilized thigh bone" spotted on Mars this week was really just (can you bear the tension) a rock, NASA says. "No bones about it!" writes the agency on its website. "Mission science team members think its shape is likely sculpted by erosion, either wind or water." The...
Call it a cosmic coincidence. On its quest to reach Pluto, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft is crossing Neptune’s orbit today, Aug. 25 -- the same day that the Voyager 2 spacecraft visited the giant icy planet in 1989.
The Low Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD) may look like a flying saucer, but it’s actually an important step in building the Earth-to-Mars ride that NASA needs. In order to deliver the next generation of science equipment that is being planned for Mars, they will have to deliver much heavier payloads than they have before. Delivering [...]

Arctic sea ice is melting fast, having lost about 1 million square miles since the 1970s, but experts are still figuring out what factors, such as cloud cover, are speeding or slowing the ice's demise. A new NASA mission is flying researchers over the Arctic to study the interplay between cloud types and ice conditions. Show More Summary
