Recently, a not-for-profit organization known as Mars One released the list of 1,058 applicants who could be selected for colonization on Mars.
Since Earth is the only known inhabited planet and we happen to live here, it’s only natural to regard it as the ideal place for life to exist, and to assume that another life-bearing planet would be fairly similar.
China's first moon rover and lander are revealed in amazing detail in stunning new panoramic images stitched together from recent photos from the country's Chang'e 3 lunar mission.
Something seems a little off here…
THIS IS JUST CREEPY. A mystery rock on Mars that suddenly appeared in front of NASA's Opportunity rover may look like a tasty donut, but it is like nothing ever seen on the Martian surface before.
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory tested its G-FOLD divert algorithm experimental landing system aboard the Masten rocket in Sept. 2013. This algorithm allows the rocket to autonomously select an alternate landing site.
U.S. scientists say they're working on mini-satellites that could function as "space cops" to help avoid collisions in space of satellites and space debris.
The concept of stardust is a magical one, even if its actual definition is more mundane.
