Years of observational data, cosmological models and physics suggest the Universe is flat. However, a recent study suggests that the Universe is actually curved and closed, like an inflating sphere.
SpaceX team has completed 13 successful tests in a row of upgraded Mark 3 parachutes for Crew Dragon. Most recent test demonstrated the parachute system’s ability to land the spacecraft safely in the unlikely event that one of the four main parachutes fails.
Hygiea is located in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and is the fourth largest object in the main asteroid belt. Now, a new telescopic survey suggests Hygiea is a dwarf planet, due to its surprisingly spherical shape.
The new observations show a mega-structure being assembled in a system called Abell 1758, located about three billion light-years from Earth. It contains two pairs of colliding galaxy clusters that are heading toward one another.
When we look far into the distant universe - we expect to find distant giant radio galaxies comparatively small. But to our surprise the new research found that these giants still appear enormous even though they are so far away.
The world’s first exclusive spacewear system for private astronauts, designed by Under Armour in collaboration with Sir Richard Branson owned Virgin Galactic has been unveiled for Suborbital SpaceShipTwo Flights.
The satellite called Icon, or Ionospheric Connection Explorer, will transmit data intended to help scientists understand the physical processes at work where Earth's atmosphere interacts with near-Earth space.
Scientists have found that the pressure at the edge of the solar system is greater than expected after analyzing data collected by NASA's Voyager spacecraft—the only objects to have traveled to interstellar space.
A titanic, expanding beam of energy sprang from close to the supermassive black hole in the center of the Milky Way just 3.5 million years ago, sending a cone-shaped burst of radiation through both poles of the galaxy and out into deep space.
A team of German scientists recently examined data gathered by the Cassini orbiter around Enceladus’ southern polar region and found was evidence of organic signatures that could be the building blocks for amino acids.
