Previously, 14 women and 213 men have carried out spacewalks. The first woman was the Russian cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya, who went outside the USSR’s Salyut 7 space station in 1984.
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.
According to new study by a team of NASA scientists, Venus would have been able to maintain stable temperatures – from a low of 20 °C (68 °F) to a high of 50 °C (122 °F) – for about three billion years.
NASA is testing out a new inflatable heat shield which could enable them to send heavier missions to Mars, as well as Venus and Titan.
All in all, from inventory checking to monitoring noise levels and more, the robotic bees, astrobees, are all set to be helpers, and they will serve as the crew's extra eyes and ears.
A team of scientists has re-created some of the first steps of life in the lab, testing whether life could emerge on other ocean worlds.
NASA and SpaceX announced that they are ready to conduct the first orbital launch of Crew Dragon as early as March 2nd, a demonstration that will directly precede the first crewed launch on a US rocket in more eight years.
An international team of scientists found evidence that the rock was launched from Earth by a large impacting asteroid or comet. The impact sent material into space, where it collided with the surface of the Moon 4 bil years ago.
In 60 years of space exploration, we've placed almost 7,000 satellites in orbit. Less than a third still function. The rest is dangerous junk - and their number is growing. Here's how we might mitigate the threat.
The three confirmed planets discovered so far using TESS are all within 100 light-years of our solar system, substantially closer than the nearly 2,700 validated worlds detected using Kepler.
More than 41 years and nearly 18 billion km from Earth, NASA’s Voyager 2 probe has finally passed beyond the protective bubble defined by the Sun’s magnetic fields and solar wind, joining its sistership Voyager 1 in the interstellar space.
It will map and study the tiny world in great detail, eventually returning a piece of Bennu to Earth in 2023. The discoveries of OSIRIS-REx will shed light on our solar system's ancient history.
