Our solar system didn't, as previously thought, take twice as long as most to form, new research shows. read more

The multi-color stars of globular cluster NGC 6362

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope recently captured an impressive view of the center of globular cluster NGC 6362. read more

Fermi spots the shadows of the very first stars

Astronomers have measured the light from the very earliest stars, working out for the first time the total amount of light from all the stars that have ever shone. read more

Vesta shows new type of weathering

The highly-patterned surface of the giant asteroid Vesta is caused by a long history of strikes from hundreds of other, smaller asteroids. read more

Martian soil is similar to Hawaii's

NASA's Curiosity rover has finished its first set of tests on the soil sample it scooped up earlier this month and discovered it's a lot like the volcanic soils of Hawaii. read more

SpaceX completes first commercial cargo mission

The SpaceX Dragon cargo craft has made it safely back to Earth, completing the first ever commercial cargo mission to the International Space Station. read more

The violent star formation of dwarf galaxies

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has managed to capture an image of the faint irregular galaxy NGC 3738, which astronomers describe as a starburst galaxy. ?? read more

Mega-storm churns up Saturn

NASA's Cassini spacecraft has been watching the aftermath of the largest and hottest stratospheric vortex ever detected in our solar system. read more

New explanation for universe's infrared glow

Dark matter halos — the huge, invisible cocoons of mass that envelop entire galaxies and account for most of the matter in the universe — may not be so dark after all. read more

Galactic black hole emits massive flare

NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) has taken its first look at the giant black hole at the center of our galaxy - and caught it right in the middle of a flare-up. read more

New crew members head to International Space Station

Three new crew members have set sail to join their Expedition 33 crewmates onboard the International Space Station (ISS). ?? read more

Black hole jet erupts at near light speed

Astronomers have snapped a supersonic jet of material blasting over two million light years from the centre of a distant galaxy. read more

What if Mars astronauts get sick?

A spacecraft really wouldn't be a great place to suffer from, say, salmonella poisoning - but new research indicates that microgravity and prolonged space flight could give unique advantages to germs. read more

The bizarre weather of Uranus

NASA’s Voyager probe swept past Uranus in 1986, but yielded few new details of the planet and its atmosphere. ?? read more

Were Saturn's moons produced during multiple impacts?

Two professors say that the unusual moons of Saturn could be explained by several large impacts in which several major satellites merged to form Titan. read more

Jupiter's Trojan asteroids show their true colors

NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, WISE, has uncovered new clues about the Jovian Trojans - asteroids that orbit the sun on the same path as Jupiter in two 'packs'. read more

Citizen scientists find planet with four suns

Two amateur astronomers have discovered the first example of a planet orbiting twin suns that is itself orbited by a second distant pair of stars. read more

Baumgartner breaks speed of sound in freefall

Felix Baumgartner successfully completed his record-breaking jump from the edge of space yesterday, becoming the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall. read more

Solar wind brought water to the moon

The water found locked inside soil on the moon's surface derives from hydrogen in the solar wind - meaning there could be water on other apparently-dry bodies in the solar system too. read more

Stellar-mass black hole stalks the Milky Way

NASA's Swift satellite recently detected a rising tide of high-energy X-rays from a source toward the center of our Milky Way galaxy. read more
