Your candles, crayons, and pedicures have something in common with a revolutionary aerospace engineering project from NASA and Stanford University. The paraffin wax used in familiar, everyday products and pampering is also what fuels the Peregrine hybrid rocket motor.
A new NASA study is challenging a long-held theory that tsunamis form and acquire their energy mostly from vertical movement of the seafloor.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft is back in contact after shooting through the gap between Saturn and its rings
The latest offering from the Zooniverse family, Backyard Worlds asks citizen scientists to hunt for rogue planets in NASA data
Great news Cassini fans! The NASA spacecraft successfully completed its first pass through the uncharted territory between Saturn and its rings on Wednesday. Hopefully the next 21 orbits through this never-before-explored space will be just as successful. More than 100 members of the Cassini team...

NASA's protoplanet probe's third reaction wheel has failed in the lead-up to observations of Ceres' weird bright patch.
Apple is reportedly teaming up with an expert from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for its “secretive” AR glasses. Leaks surfaced last week hinting that the Cupertino tech giant is currently working on a “new...Show More Summary
The M.E.T. Effect (the convergence of media, entertainment and tech) was on full display at the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, this week — from tech for amateur YouTubers to today’s livestream from the NASA International Space Station. Show More Summary
Enticing display of climate data updated regularly
NASA faces a challenge simply maintaining its inventory of existing suits, report says.
So, NASA released an image of gullies eroded into the slopes of impact craters on Mars today. More »
Launched in 1997, the Cassini space probe has been providing NASA with data about Saturn and the moon since 2004. It’s now running out of fuel. Erik Wernquist made this excellent CGI short film to sum up Cassini’s contributions and its final mission.
On the rust-colored north flank of one of Earth's largest volcanoes, a backpack-sized instrument monitors our atmosphere and, at the same time, helps set the stage for possible human exploration of other worlds. Designed and built at NASA's Goddard Space...
The space agency seems to be running out of usable suits for space station operations.
NASA and researchers at the University of Arizona are building a greenhouse that can mimic conditions on Earth to feed astronauts on the moon and on Mars.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) On the rust-colored north flank of one of Earth's largest volcanoes, a backpack-sized instrument monitors our atmosphere and, at the same time, helps set the stage for possible human exploration of other worlds.
(University of Colorado at Boulder) Toting a $12 million instrument built by the University of Colorado Boulder, NASA's Cassini spacecraft made the first of 22 dives between the rings of Saturn and the gaseous planet today, the beginning of the end for one of NASA's most successful missions ever.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft is set to make its first dive through the narrow gap between Saturn and its rings on April 26, 2017. Because that gap is a region no spacecraft has ever explored, Cassini will use its dish-shaped high-gain...
A new report finds that NASA's spacewalking suits are in short supply. The suits were developed more than 40 years ago, and a replacement is still years away. That's despite nearly $200 million spent on new suit technology for Mars and other future space travel.
