The harsh Martian terrain has not been kind to the rover's wheels. The post NASA reports two new breaks in Curiosity rover’s wheel appeared first on ExtremeTech.
An international team of astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered a supermassive black hole that has been propelled out of the centre of the distant galaxy 3C186. The black hole was most likely ejected by the power of gravitational waves. Show More Summary

This is a video of Farmtruck and AZN (seriously?) from Street Outlaws on the Discovery Channel demonstrating the nitrous-tank powered spinning office chair they built, presumably so they could send the footage to NASA as part of their astronaut job application. Show More Summary
After decades of moderate sea ice expansion, NASA is witnessing something it did not expect. Right now, the amount of sea ice in the Arctic is around as high is it will be all winter, but new records indicate this year's maximum is actually the lowest of any maximum on record. Show More Summary
Take a moment and imagine an astronaut riding a motorcycle on the moon. Congrats! You will never imagine anything cooler in your entire life. What’s surprising is this nearly became a reality. Read more...
Astronauts locked inside the International Space Station (ISS) are about to get some new robotic friends: three autonomous cubes that will float around and record their every move. The free-flying robots are called Astrobees, and they...Show More Summary
NASA has only flown astronauts aboard a rocket's first flight once, when John Young and Bob Crippen took space shuttle Columbia on the boldest test flight in history. What are the risks of repeating the feat for SLS?
"They have come to us and said we want to look at some... corrective action."
The "Neurala Brain" deep learning software, first developed for NASA's Mars rover, promises to make integrating artificial intelligence into toys, drones, robots, and self-driving cars much cheaper and easier.
NASA has selected ten studies under the Planetary Science Deep Space SmallSat Studies (PSDS3) program, to develop mission concepts using small satellites to investigate Venus, Earth's moon, asteroids, Mars and the outer planets.
One of our planet's few exposed lava lakes is changing, and artificial intelligence is helping NASA understand how.
Both of Earth’s poles are looking at record low sea ice extent levels, according to NASA and the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). Every year, sea ice in the Arctic grows and expands throughout the winter, but the region saw a record low wintertime maximum extent on March 7. Read: New...

While we all want to travel, live, and bang in space, there are some pretty major things to consider, such as the fact that our sentient flesh cocoons were not designed to handle the harsh conditions of the cosmic void. Though research like NASA’s Twin Study will illuminate some of the potential impacts of extended… Read more...
