Earth-like exoplanets are really common, and that's pretty cool.
The Orion spacecraft is a key part of the next generation of NASA’s space exploration programs.
Hey there, future Martians. If you missed the deadline to register for the Mars One colony, have we got some good news for you: there's still a chance to get your hands on a bit of Mars-style isolation in the name of science.
Last week, as the world celebrated the first lunar landing, Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins both called for NASA to make Mars its next goal.
The interaction of the photons between these two plates is then fired out of the launch platform. The platform remains in orbit, controlled by conventional thrusters. However, it fires at a craft, which does the brunt of the actual space travel. By c

The European Space Agency has rolled out a new initiative to refine 3D printing techniques to make space-grade metal parts.
Japan to shoot asteroid for samples in 2014 mission
It’s not space. It’s more like a high-altitude vacation. A new Arizona company is joining the outer edges of the tourism industry to find passengers who want to see a dark sky and the curvature of the Earth, all without boarding a sub-orbital rocket
"We made this discovery literally with the very first laser shot on the Red Planet," said Roger Wiens, leader of the ChemCam instrument team. "Every single time we shot at dust we saw a significant hydrogen peak."
Ethiopia unveiled Friday, October 18, the first phase of a space exploration program, which includes East Africa's largest observatory designed to promote astronomy research in the region.
If the government can’t handle enrollment, how can we expect it to manage a complex healthcare program?
Wow. Wired's Adam Mann directed us toward this stunning overhead view of a crater rim on Mars, posted by NASA.
RocketCam's video of the September 29th, 2013 launch, saw the upgraded rocket's first stage separation and an engine restart - key to making fully re-usable boosters that can fly often.
It literally broke the scale.
John Graves, 59, doesn't consider himself a daredevil. "I'm a techie," the soft-spoken grandfather of five tells SPACE.com, his gray hair luminescing under black lights dressing up a Virgin Galactic hangar in Mojave, Calif.
Sir Richard Branson reaches out to the public to join in on the adventure that their spaceliner will provide.
Sir Richard Branson and George Whitesides talk about the Space tourism company's future at the largest gathering of future astronauts to date.
A NASA plan to launch the world's largest solar sail into space and unfurl it like a giant parasol has passed a major test as the mission moves closer to a planned January 2015 launch.
Malcolm Scott Carpenter, who used his middle name as his first, was the second American to orbit the Earth, way back in 1962, on the Mercury mission. (John Glenn was the first.) Carpenter died today in Denver.
Its fate is a glimpse into Earth's own future.
Billions of years ago, Martian supervolcanoes could have discharged hundreds of cubic miles' worth of magma until the surface around the volcanoes collapsed, leaving deep, irregular craters behind, Michalski and Bleacher suggested.
UC San Diego became the first university to design, print and test an 'additively-manufactured 'rocket engine. It was printed from Cobalt Chromium. The students were part of UCSD's chapter of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space.
Ground controllers at the company's headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif., restarted the engines on both rocket stages after dropping off the satellites. The second stage booster failed to ignite as planned, but three of the nine engines on the first st
The series, Space Race, is being developed for NBC.
Icarus (this guy) had nothing on Solar Probe Plus (SPP). The new solar spacecraft, planned for a 2018 launch, will fly closer to the Sun than any human-built object before it, sipping the Sun's corona. SPP won’t carry humans (or any other life forms)
A Switzerland-based spaceflight company is finalizing plans with Canada over a potential launch site for a new private space plane, which is slated to launch a satellite to clean up space junk by 2018.
Mars pioneers could use 3D printing to create a sustainable human colony on the Red Planet, advocates say.
3D printing and assembly in space could lead to bigger and better structures that are less expensive to make. Before their technology is a reality, Tethers Unlimited has to overcome a few engineering challenges.
