THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN – AND THEY WANT TO DRILL INTO THE MOON.
In the Google Lunar XPrize competition, three-dozen teams are racing to become the first private enterprises to land a rover on the moon.
It won't be easy, but the private spaceflight company SpaceX will attempt to bring a stage of its Falcon 9 rocket back from space and land it on a floating platform in the Atlantic Ocean during an audacious test on Jan. 6.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fl -- Space Exploration Technologies' (SpaceX ) fifth contracted mission under the Commercial Resupply Services (CRS ) initiative – might take a little longer to be given the green light for launch. A report appearing on NASASpac
The hunt for present or past life on Mars got a boost as NASA's Curiosity rover records spikes in atmospheric methane ten times greater than previously measured by the unmanned probe.
SpaceX and NASA announced earlier today that the fifth cargo resupply mission (CRS-5) to the International Space Station scheduled for tomorrow has been once more delayed, this time to no earlier than January 6th.

Fresh off a successful test flight, the Orion spacecraft to hit the big screen in 2015, showing in full 3D glory in the next chapter in space exploration.
A double-sized earth was recently found by astronomers in the Canary Islands from a distance of 40 million light years.
The European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft is beaming back high-resolution photos of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko this week that engineers hope will reveal the location of the Philae lander, the small robot that bounced off the surface Nov. 12
NASA is holding a challenge that will permit general public to name craters on Mercury in a push to bring awareness regarding the MESSENGER program.
NASA's Mars rover Curiosity's discovery of organic compounds in the ground and plumes of methane in the air opens two potentially related investigations into whether or not the planet most like Earth in the solar system also hosted life.
Just some highlights. Freedom's Phoenix' Space Travel and Exploration Category is over 9 years old with 3000 entries. Here are a few from the first year... enjoy.
Just a quick heads up that Michael Belfiore will be on Minnesota Public Radio this morning talking about SpaceX's potentially groundbreaking launch scheduled for Friday.
Space travel is a funny thing. It's the only form of transportation where it is considered perfectly acceptable to throw away your vehicle after every flight. That's a big part of the reason it's so expensive. Imagine having to build a new jumb
SpaceX will attempt the precision landing of a Falcon 9 first stage for the first time, on a custom-built ocean platform known as the autonomous spaceport drone ship. The odds of success are not great--perhaps 50% at best.
Evidence of life on Mars could have been found by Nasa's Curiosity Rover. Mysterious spikes of methane that cannot easily be explained by geology or other theories have been found by an instrument on the robot, which landed
Private spaceflight company SpaceX has been testing reusable rockets to lower the cost of space missions, and over the next two months, the company will attempt the landing of Falcon 9 rockets on a drone spaceport. The landings are schedule for this
What do you get for the little space fan with dreams of stars and rocket flights?
Last Friday, on December 5, NASA launched a spacecraft on a mission it touted as the first step toward getting humans to Mars.
IDEO's Tom Kelley on why purpose trumps profit - Why Orion won't be America's next spaceship (and this one will)
The oceans are a mystery in more ways than one, but you might not expect the answers to come from a pack of electronics and a comet.
Launching deep space probes is great, but to really explore space and unlock its secrets, it sure would be helpful if getting there were as easy as pressing a button.
Asteroids, not comets, may have delivered most of Earth's water to the planet when the solar system was young, new data from a probe orbiting a comet suggests.
SpaceX will apparently attempt something truly epic during next week's cargo launch to the International Space Station.
When a space startup has twice the force for a fraction of the cost, you know the US government has a problem.
There's nothing odd about volcanoes on the Moon, per se. Much of the Moon's ancient surface is covered with hardened lava. The main features of the "Man in the Moon," in fact, are old basaltic flows deposited billions of years ago when the Moon
