We soon will witness an event that has long been associated with the end of the Earth (fortunate timing before finals for my students): the blood moon. Mars, Earth, and the Sun will all align tonight which happens once every 778 days.
Skywatchers will get a rare treat Tuesday night when Mars, Earth and the sun will be arranged in a nearly straight line.
When NASA sends an identical twin to the International Space Station next year, a Colorado State University researcher will be among just a few hand-picked scientists studying him and his brother to measure impacts of space travel on the human body.

So many children dream of fast cars and rocket ships, but few actually grow up to build them -- and change the world in the process
The U.S. Air Force's robotic X-37B space plane has broken its own all-time endurance record in orbit after more than 470 days of circling the Earth on a mystery mission for the American military.
For the first time ever, astronomers have discovered a ring system surrounding an asteroid. The finding is a complete surprise to planetary scientists, who are yet unsure exactly how such rings could have formed.
People selected to live on the Red Planet will train inside an earthbound outpost. If they don't go crazy, they just might make the real trip.

NASA's Steve Swanson and cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev launched toward the International Space Station earlier today (March 25), and they are scheduled to dock with the orbiting outpost at 11:05 p.m. EDT (0305 March 26 GMT). You c
We are all star stuff, it’s true. But that stuff, born in a supernova, underwent a whole lot of change on the way to becoming the sun, the Earth, and us.
The United States should be able to launch its astronauts to space using homegrown commercial spacecraft by 2017, NASA officials say.
