Space geeks are freaking out because NASA may have accidentally discovered a warp field, an avenue down which spaceships can travel faster than the speed of light – something that, to date, has only existed in science fiction.
The search for life beyond our solar system is about to get a boost of brain power.
On Friday's CBS Evening News, a NASA scientist made a surprising admission about climate change during a report about an erupting volcano in South America. Correspondent Michelle Miller turned to Dr. Allegra LeGrande, who detailed how the gases from a volcanic eruption can lead to a reduction in the amount of sunlight that reaches the Earth.

NASA scientists working on a project called EmDrive have accidentally stumbled upon something that will send science fiction junkies into a frenzy. The possibility of a real-life warp drive has been placed on the table thanks to readings...Show More Summary
SPACE TELESCOPES ARE EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS: Most powerful space telescope ever to launch in 2018. As the Hubble Space Telescope celebrates 25 years in space this week, NASA and its international partners are building an even more powerful tool to look deeper into the universe than ever before. The James Webb Space Telescope will be 100 […]
The Hubble Space Telescope is celebrating 25 years of documenting the beauty of our universe - and to commemorate the occasion, NASA has released a stunning image captured by the telescope. "This vista of starry fireworks and glowing...Show More Summary
It appears NASA may have accidentally created a Warp Field. NASA was working on a high-tech thruster and when they sent some beams through, some traveled faster than the speed of light. This specific type of device uses a magnetic field to create the thrust. Show More Summary
If it weren’t for the Hubble telescope, our selection of dope images for lock screens and desktop backgrounds would be far scantier. Thankfully, NASA’s omnipresent orbiter has been snapping celestial photos for a good quarter century—but its construction actually began way earlier, back in the late 70s, continuing throughout the next decade.

NASA plans to follow the Hubble Space Telescope with two exotic new observatories
We look at the controversy surrounding NASA’s new accidental discovery and what it could mean for the future of space travel. UFO secrecy is also featured along with fringe reports from abductees and conspiracy researchers. The MU Android App is LIVE Links IT HAPPENED TO ME: I...
The latest entrant to the electric and driverless vehicle field comes as somewhat of a surprise. After announcing a partnership with Nissan back in January, NASA has released a video showcasing their driverless car — the Modular Robotic Vehicle — which features some of the same qualities as their rovers. A document released by NASA […]
Inside NASA's giant thermal vacuum chamber, called Chamber A, at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, the James Webb Space Telescope's Pathfinder backplane test model, is being prepared for its cryogenic test. Previously used for manned spaceflight missions, this historic chamber is now filled with engineers and technicians preparing for a crucial test.
NASA is bringing together from across the country some of the top minds in a variety of scientific fields as it prepares to embark on an unprecedented search for life on planets outside of our solar system.
In our weekly Concept Art Writing Prompt, we invite you all to write short stories inspired by a particularly interesting illustration. This week’s prompt, by artist Johnson Ting, shows us a very battered NASA ship. You tell us: What happened here? Read more...
