The proposed national park on the moon will have to compete with Idaho's lunar park.
Though the sun is currently in the peak year of its 11-year solar weather cycle, our closest star has been rather quiet over all, scientists say.
Karen Nyberg posted the video in response to the many questions she has received asking her how she washes her hair in space.
What we discover is that the sun is leaving a plume of uncharged neutrons in its wake. Even better, we are able to track it to some degree. Importantly it is a stable marker of our passage around the galaxy as well as a natural mapper of any interve

Scientists aim to equip manned crews to Mars with innovative devices that keep track of social interactions and provide instant feedback when conflict and other troubles regarding teamwork emerge.
On the same day that another House panel approved the smallest NASA budget since 2007, the House Science space subcommittee approved —
A national park on the moon? It could happen.
An upcoming study in the Astrophysical Journal Letters will detail the first ever determination of a distant exoplanet’s color, thanks to the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
Lucky us! Our solar system has a tail reminiscent of a four-leaf clover, according to new observations of the plasma bubble that shields the solar system from the rest of the galaxy.
Physics cannot describe what happens inside a black hole. There, current theories break down, and general relativity collides with quantum mechanics, creating what's called a singularity, or a point at whichthe equations spit out infinities.
Officials in charge of Europe's ExoMars rover, part of a joint Mars exploration project with Russia, say they are confident the life-seeking robot will reach the Red Planet's surface despite Russia's record of star-crossed Mars missions.
NASA's next Mars rover should hunt for signs of past Red Planet life and collect samples for eventual return to Earth, a team of mission planners has determined.
Clad in a white spacesuit with his country's green, white and red striped flag adorning his left shoulder, Luca Parmitano has become Italy's first astronaut to walk in space.
SpaceX is testing the prototype Grasshopper in the hope that it will one day replace the “throwaway” rockets that are more commonplace.
Two astronauts will work outside the International Space Station for 6 1/2 hours on Tuesday, and you can follow all the free-floating action live.
Black holes are essentially invisible, but astronomers are developing technology to image the immediate surroundings of these enigmas like never before.
Bacteria grown in a dish of fake urine in space behaves in ways never-before-seen in Earth microorganisms, scientists say.
Tech tools related to the International Space Station ruled NASA's Space Apps Challenge this year.
A private company's prototype reusable rocket made its highest leap to date last month, soaring 100 stories into the air before landing softly back at its launch pad as planned.
For the past few decades, space exploration has largely focused on building incredible (occasionally incredibly expensive) high-end machines. It’s not hard to see why — machines like Curiosity and its rocket-powered hover crane are amazing accomplish
NASA‘s Curiosity Mars rover may be the agency’s latest space-faring rover, but their newest wheeled robot was recently deployed in the cold depths of Greenland.
Powerful and puzzling radio blasts in other galaxies constantly explode across the night sky, a new study suggests.

The famous seaside space shuttle runway here at NASA's Kennedy Space Center may have a second life soon as a launch and landing spot for a whole new type of space mission: tourist flights.
Good news: they'll explode! Bad news: they might not be the prettiest fireworks ever.
One of Mars' two tiny moons climbs high into the Red Planet sky in an otherworldly new video recorded by NASA's Curiosity rover.
As any 6-year-old boy will tell you, the coolest things in life are giant machines and outer space.
A Doctor Who-themed satellite got funding on Kickstarter, and will get launched into space at the end of the year. (But can it travel through time, too?)
For an astrobiologist, going into the field doesn't have to mean going to another planet.
