NASA's Artemis 1 mission has returned to Earth following a successful trip around the moon. NASA will begin assessing all the data that the spacecraft collected on its 1.4 million-mile journey through space and begin preparing for Artemis II.
After two failed attempts, NASA has successfully launched its Moon-bound megarocket the Space Launch System, which will travel beyond the far side of the Moon and back - further than any other habitable spacecraft so far.
NASA scientists, using a tool designed to study how dust affects climate, have identified more than 50 spots around the world emitting major levels of methane, a development that could help combat the potent greenhouse gas.
Humanity’s first attempt to purposely change the motion of asteroid was a success. The DART mission shows that NASA is trying to be ready for whatever the universe throws at us in future.
Astronomers around the world are captivated by an unusually bright and long-lasting pulse of high-energy radiation that swept over Earth Sunday, Oct. 9. The emission came from a gamma-ray burst (GRB). Its cause is unknown.
After 10 months flying in space, NASA's DART mission successfully impacted its asteroid target last week - the agency's first attempt to move an asteroid in space.
A machine called MOXIE, stowed away on NASA’s Perseverance rover, can reliably convert carbon dioxide into a small tree’s worth of oxygen. During various tests, MOXIE steadily breathed in Martian atmosphere and breathed out at least six grams of oxygen an hour.
This observation of a gas giant planet orbiting a Sun-like star 700 light-years away provides important insights into the composition and formation of the planet.
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has produced the deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe to date. Known as Webb'nas First Deep Field, this image of galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 is overflowing with detail.
Dr Josef Schmid found himself beamed to the middle of the International Space Station, where he was able to enjoy a conversation with the astronauts and even shared a handshake.
Nearly 45 years into its space journey, the NASA Voyager 1 probe is sending back mysterious data that has left the spacecraft’s engineers confused.
There was a huge weakness in our asteroid defense system when only one of the hemispheres was covered by telescopes that constantly scan the sky. Now NASA funded two more telescopes in the southern hemisphere.
A powerful European Ariane 5 rocket boosted NASA’s $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope into space on Christmas Day, kicking off a great attempt to capture light from the first galaxies to form in the aftermath of the Big Bang.
