A team led by scientists and engineers at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, is now studying the scientific and technical requirements and costs associated with building a successor to Hubble and the Webb telescope.
Many scientists believe we are not alone in the universe. It's probable, they say, that life could have arisen on at least some of the billions of planets thought to exist in our galaxy alone -- just as it did here on planet Earth.
On July 14, NASA will launch a sounding rocket from White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. A little before noon, the rocket will streak 180 miles into the atmosphere, sending it into the thermosphere layer, beyond the ozone's ability to block the sun's high energy light.
The holy grail of planetary astronomy is to find a solar system that mirrors our own. While a lot of effort has been placed on finding a planet with Earth-like properties – the right size, an atmosphere, the right temperature – of equal importance is the search for a Sun-like star.
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has reached another development milestone with the completion of static load testing of its primary mirror backplane support structure (PMBSS) moving the telescope one step closer to its 2018 launch.

The HESS-II (High Energy Stereoscopic System) telescope in Namibia has detected gamma rays of only 30 Giga electron volts (GeV) from the Vela pulsar.
The age of ‘baby stars’ is difficult to gauge, but a newly published study in the journal Science has revealed scientists used a technique similar ultrasound technology to determine how old these young stars are.
NASA’s STEREO mission began in 2006 and has been providing scientists with images from the far side of the sun since February 2011. The spacecraft duo that were placed in orbit around the sun are now about to embark on the next phase of their mission.
