NASA’s Curiosity rover sent back a pair of very curious photos that alien conspiracy theory circles are celebrating as evidence of a 'genuine spaceship' and 'thigh bones' visible on Mars.
Anonymous Hacking Collective suggested this week that NASA has already discovered traces of life in the geyser plumes of Enceladus, but so far is keeping it secret, and is preparing to announce it in the near future. Here's what NASA...
A new study that stemmed from a planetary protection project for NASA and the European Space Agency. It turns out our skin is crawling with single-celled microorganisms -- and they're not just bacteria. A study by the Department of Energy's...
You won't want to book your honeymoon there, but there's a place on Mars where the landscape reminds scientists of the epic formations of Niagara Falls.
It took the Voyager 1 spacecraft over three decades to leave the solar system (and scientists still aren’t sure when it did). We need a new method of propulsion that will transport spacecraft faster than ever before. NASA is one of a...Show More Summary
Now a tropical storm, Hurricane Dora has been skirting southwestern Mexico's coast since it formed and has transported tropical moisture onshore that has produced some heavy rain showers. The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite has analyzed those rainfall rates.

BY ALAN BOYLE NASA says it’s cleared a significant milestone on the path to reviving supersonic passenger jet travel in the U.S. with the completion of the preliminary design review for its low-boom experimental airplane. The Low-Boom Flight Demonstration X-plane, or LBFD, is designed to create a soft “thump” rather than the loud sonic boom […]
The return of civilian supersonic passenger travel just took a big step closer to reality. NASA recently announced that the federal agency has completed the preliminary design review (PDR) of its Quiet Supersonic Transport or QueSSTShow More Summary
Wherever you find people, you also find bacteria and other microorganisms. The International Space Station is no exception.
The agency is close to testing its design for Quiet Supersonic Transport or QueSST, which could lead to passenger jets that can again reach supersonic speeds. The post NASA’s Quiet Supersonic Plane Could Soon Take Flight appeared first on ExtremeTech.
UFO believers, who have endured being scoffed at by the non-believers for so long, may finally be vindicated after all. If latest reports are indeed correct, proof that aliens exist is at hand. What is even more exciting is that NASA...Show More Summary
It takes spinning reaction wheels and rockets firing for mere seconds to keep the Cassini probe on course in orbit around Saturn.
Astrobee will float around assisting astronauts in a range of tasks. It’s a fascinating glimpse at NASA’s robotic future in space.
Making space seem real and beautiful isn't just marketing. It's good for science, too.
A new map charts Northeast Syrtis---a promising potential landing site for NASA's next Mars rover---in unprecedented detail.
Puffer, from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, can explore places too risky for bigger, more expensive rovers.
Robots are paving the way toward lucrative space mining as NASA and private startups launch pioneering prospecting missions to precious metal-rich asteroids. President Donald Trump is obsessed with returning America to its coal mining past—but scientists and entreprenurs have far more ambitious plans. Show More Summary
Global sea level rise will be one of the major environmental challenges of the 21st Century. NASA's Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) a 5-year airborne and ship-based mission that will pave the way for improved estimates of sea level rise...
I'm not the only one that gets all teary at this sort of thing, am I? Every day, for the last 20 years, NASA has been exploring the surface of Mars. Here's the journey so far condensed into a three minute video. More »
