Researchers had discovered a “heat wave” extending across 10 Earth-diameters in the atmosphere of our solar system’s biggest planet, Jupiter. In other words, Jupiter’s atmosphere is hundreds of degrees hotter than previously thought.
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.
The first picture of Neptune to be taken by NASA's James Webb Space Telescope reveals the latest, greatest details of the ice giant's atmosphere, moons, and rings in infrared wavelengths.
NASA scientists said Thursday the Mars Perseverance rover found biologically-interesting rocks in an ancient lake bed that could indicate microbial life existed on the red planet billions of years ago.
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.
An international team of researchers studying dust samples retrieved by the Hayabusa-2 space probe, has found that some of its dust grains are older than the solar system.
The planets in our Solar System formed progressively. Small grains grew over time into kilometer-sized planetesimals by accumulating more and more material through their gravitational pull.
Compared to most places you might wander in the Solar System, Titan, the giant moon of Saturn, is in many ways strangely familiar to Earth.
Japanese researchers have discovered more than 20 amino acids on the space rock Ryugu, which is more than 200 million miles (320 million kilometers) from Earth.
Jupiter's moon Europa is a prime candidate in the search for life. The frozen moon has a subsurface ocean and the new research shows that the moon is pulling oxygen down below its icy shell.
NASA has sent a spacecraft, the Parker Solar Probe to the outer reaches of the sun’s atmosphere – the corona – where it spent five hours. This is the first time a spacecraft has come so close to the sun.
