NASA's Curiosity Mars rover is continuing its traverse toward enticing science destinations after climbing over a dune spanning a gap in a ridge.
NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and Jean-Yves Le Gall, president of the National Center of Space Studies of France (CNES), signed an implementing agreement Monday for cooperation on a future NASA Mars lander called the Interior Exploration Using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy, and Heat Transport (InSight) mission.
New images from NASA's Curiosity Mars rover show Earth shining brighter than any star in the Martian night sky.
With precise timing, the camera aboard NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) was able to take a picture of NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) spacecraft as it orbited our nearest celestial neighbor.
A NASA team is currently considering an alternate route for Mars rover Curiosity’s trek toward its next drilling site and later to Mount Sharp after considerable wheel damage has occurred over much of the last year.
Scientists at NASA said they are busy prepping for observations of a comet that is expected to streak across the Martian sky. The comet is expected to pass about 10 times closer to Mars than any identified comet has ever flown by Earth.
System Projected to Provide 10 Times More Power than the Largest Current Satellite Solar Array Technology ARLINGTON, Va., Jan.
NASA's CRaTER Live Internet Radio Station takes cosmic radiation data on a live stream from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and converts it into a constant flow of soothing cosmic music.
While it might look like a squishable mess of ropes and tent poles, NASA’s proposed “Super Ball Bot” could hold the key to making landing a rover on another planet easier and far less expensive.
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...
