Pop favors property rights over group hugs. "Despite the noble ideals of equity and care for the have-nots, the Common Heritage paradigm of the Moon Treaty has more faults than merits," Pop told SPACE.com.
How the MKV-L concept works & its successful first hover ground test (Dec. 2008). The actual ground test footage is bookended by CGI concept clips so you'll know what you're watching. See how missile defense will deal with countermeasures.
Three undergraduate students have discovered a large planet orbiting a fast-rotating star. Extrasolar planet discoveries like this have become common, but this one is unusual both for who found it and the type of star it orbits.
Everybody has seen Armageddon and knows that an asteroid could come hurdling toward us. But there are a whole lot of other threats out there in the cosmos that could wipe us out at any moment. And we'd probably never see them coming.

Astronomers looking at the spectacular supersonic plumes of gas and dust shooting off one of Saturn’s moons say there are strong hints of liquid water, a key building block of life. Adds to the growing push to explore further the moon Enceladus, as o
The full mission duration test firing of the Falcon 9 rocket first stage lasted 178 seconds. The 9 Merlin engines produced 855,000 lbs. of thrust and consumed over half a million pounds of liquid oxygen and rocket grade kerosene during the test.
Ground-penetrating radar used by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter reveals numerous huge glaciers up to one half-mile thick buried beneath layers of rock and debris. Researchers said one glacier is three time the size of Los Angeles in area.
Remember the computer-enhanced fireworks at the Beijing Olympics? Was the recent SpaceWalk video from CCP Shenzhou VII Spacecraft–the center of a blog debate–the real deal or more clever enhancement?
The gravity is so strong that all the matter in the star condenses into neutrons, and the resulting stuff is so dense that a teaspoon of it would weigh about a hundred million tons.
Astronomers have taken what they say are the first-ever direct images of planets outside of our solar system, including a visible-light snapshot of a single-planet system and an infrared picture of a multiple-planet system.
A probe sent from the orbiting mother spacecraft took the pictures and gathered other data that India needs for a future moon landing. The box-shaped probe was painted with India's saffron, white and green flag and it slammed into the moon's
