Two Russian cosmonauts and a NASA astronaut soared into orbit in a Soyuz spacecraft Wednesday to begin a two-day journey to the International Space Station. NASA's Shane Kimbrough and Andrei Borisenko and Sergei Ryzhikov of Roscosmos blasted off at 0805 GMT from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan after their launch had been delayed by nearly one month over technical issues.

Following the news of yet another “warmest month ever,” NASA has basically called it: This year will be the hottest since record-keeping began in 1880. Last month was the warmest September ever recorded, narrowly beating the previous...Show More Summary
Findings from NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft include images showing seven small, bright spots that might be clouds floating just above Pluto’s surface.
The spacecraft is already well past Pluto and on its way toward a new destination, itself a billion miles beyond the dwarf planet The New Horizons spacecraft has nearly finished its 16-month dispatches from Pluto, Nasa scientists said...Show More Summary
NASA has released a number of global infrared images of Mars, constructed from data harvested by the agency's MAVEN spacecraft. The data will help scientists to understand the processes at play in the tenuous Martian atmosphere, including...Show More Summary
NASA’s New Horizons space probe is currently speeding towards a mysterious Kuiper Belt Object known as MU69. Recent observations of the distant object indicate a very reddish surface—possibly even redder than the splotches found on Pluto. Read more...
No matter what way you look at it, if the human race continues on as it is, our future will no doubt be electrified. The push in the personal transportation sector is strong, with all major manufacturers like Ford, Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes, and GM (among others) all pushing their own hybrid and electric technology in next-level cars.

The next target for NASA's New Horizons mission – which made a historic flight past Pluto in July 2015 –– apparently bears a colorful resemblance to its famous, main destination.
The EM Drive hasn’t even been fully tested in actual space conditions, yet the physics-defying engine is already making waves throughout the aerospace and science news worlds. When the news first broke that NASA engineers might have invented a kind of “warp drive,” some social media sites...

Tropical Storm Nicole was becoming extra-tropical when the NASA-NOAA Suomi NPP satellite passed over it from space and captured a visible picture of the storm. By Oct. 18, Nicole was a post-tropical storm and the National Hurricane Center or NHC issued their final advisory on the system.
It’s only October, but that doesn’t seem to matter: NASA is basically sure 2016 will go down as the hottest year in recorded history. Unless a rogue planet suddenly appears to fling the Earth off its present orbit and into the Kuiper Belt, we’re locked in. Welcome to life in a rapidly warming world. Read more...

In addition to the constant emission of warmth and light, our sun sends out occasional bursts of solar radiation that propel high-energy particles toward Earth. These solar energetic particles, or SEPs, can impact astronauts or satellites. To fully understand these...
