"I can see Uranus!" You could say that very phrase if you log on to Slooh Space Camera on Saturday night to get a glimpse of Uranus and the Harvest Moon.
The journey of NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft towards interstellar space continued over the weekend, and officials with the US space agency continue to monitor the 35-year-old probe's progress as it grows ever closer to becoming the first man-made instrument to ever leave the solar system.
Celebrating its 35th anniversary in space today, NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft is about to cross the threshold of our solar system, to boldly go where no man, nor machine, has ever gone before.
Monday marked the 35 year anniversary of NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft launching from Earth, and embarking on a venture to go where no spacecraft has gone before.
The levels of high-energy cosmic rays originating from outside our solar system and the levels of lower-energy particles originating from within have been undergoing changes at a faster rate than at any other time in the past seven years.
NASA's Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft have apparently slowed down due to heat pushing back on the spacecraft, according to new findings.
After several decades of making a lonely journey across our solar system, Voyager 1 has signaled to NASA that it may have reached the edge of interstellar space.
A team of NASA researchers has uncovered new data showing that the sun is moving more slowly through our galaxy than previously believed -- a discovery that suggests a shock wave believed to precede the heliosphere might not actually exist.
Saturn's moon Pan -- Pan, the innermost known satellite, was found from photographs taken by Voyager during its encounter with Saturn. It was discovered by Mark R. Showalter in 1990, 9 years after the Voyager encounter. Pan is located 133,583 kilometers from the center of Saturn and is within the Encke Gap of Saturn's A-ring. It acts as a shepherd and is responsible for keeping the Encke gap open. It has a diameter of 20 kilometers. ----- Discovered by: Mark R. Showalter;...
