A new analysis of data from NASA's Galileo mission has revealed clay-type minerals at the surface of Jupiter's icy moon Europa that appear to have been delivered by a spectacular collision with an asteroid or comet. This is the first time such minerals have been detected on Europa's surface. Show More Summary
Meet Valkyrie. It's a robot designed for NASA as part of a competition by the organisation's Johnson Space Center. Don't get too attached; he's designed to go to very faraway places we really shouldn't be going. At least not until we're ready. Read more...
It seems that the International Space Station's cooling system is still having problems even after the spacewalk that supposedly fixed it back in May 11, 2013. While the astronauts are not in danger, ground teams had to move critical electrical systems over to the second loop and turn off other non-critical parts of the station. Read more...
