Yesterday marks the 4th launch of the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle, or OTV. An Atlas V rocket developed by Lockheed Martin carried the craft into orbit at 11:05 a.m. EDT (1505 GMT) from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Curiosity took some time to relax and enjoy the sights of Mars as he sipped a beer. Okay, maybe that last part wasn't true.
Curiosity is doing all of us down here on Earth proud as he completed a total drive of 10 km on his way to analyze the Washboard unit.
This looks like a good spot. NASA picks the prime target for its next mission to Mars.
A primitive ocean on Mars held more water than Earth’s Arctic Ocean, according to NASA scientists who, using ground-based observatories, measured water signatures in the Red Planet’s atmosphere.
NASA's Curiosity Mars rover is expected to remain stationary for several days of engineering analysis following an onboard fault-protection action on Feb. 27 that halted a process of transferring sample material between devices on the rover's robotic arm.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) will host a briefing at noon EST (9 a.m.
Deposits of lunar hydrogen appear to be more abundant on crater slopes in the moon’s southern hemisphere, and more hydrogen leads to an increase in the possibility of water molecules!
Curiosity is back in action following a recent software upgrade, conducting a mini-drill test to make sure that a rock target called Mojave2 is suitable for drilling at full-depth.
A new program will allow NASA scientists to virtually work on location on Mars, walking around on the surface of the Red Planet and conduct science operations along with the Curiosity rover thanks to new Microsoft-developed wearable technology.
Cassini-Huygens Mission -- The Cassini unmanned space probe is intended to study Saturn and its moons. It was launched on October 15, 1997 and is estimated to enter Saturn's orbit on July 1, 2004. The mission is a joined NASA/ESA project. Cassini's principal objectives are to: -- determine the three-dimensional structure and dynamical behavior of the rings -- determine the composition of the satellite surfaces and the geological history of each object -- determine the nature and...
