Researchers found high levels of manganese oxides by using a laser-firing instrument on the rover.
To dig to the bottom of the LIGO merger, researchers at Durham University created a universe.
The agency awarded a sole source contract extension to the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy for continued Hubble science operations support at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore.
Hubble spied a new feature on the dark blue ice giant.
To accomplish its mission, NASA's new Jupiter probe needs to put itself on the line dozens of times.
The three new hot Jupiters are the first discovered by Qatar since 2011.
What formed the black holes that formed detected gravitational waves?
Black holes are a giant X-ray beacon ... and an X-ray telescope caught one in the act.
Plenty of good news for our ocean worlds!
The most powerful magnets in the universe are caught red-handed with a cloud of debris from the supernova that birthed them.
It may leave some water on Mars, but could be toxic to humans living there.
While the lower levels are already bone dry, electric winds make sure the upper atmosphere stays cooked too.
A team of astronomers has confirmed the existence of a young planet approximately 5 times the size of Earth.
In all likelihood, the first stars that formed in the Milky Way will never be directly observed.
The denser environment in a cluster will cause more frequent interactions between planets and nearby stars, which may explain the excess of hot Jupiters.

It is highly probable that the human race will hear from aliens, but it may not be for a while.
The Mars-like deserts of the American Southwest are some of Earth’s most iconic stargazing grounds. Far from pestering city lights and free from regular cloud cover, they provide a starry-skied sanctuary for lovers of the night.

It doesn’t get much darker than nighttime on the Re
One physicist believes LIGO-like black holes could be the "missing mass" long sought by particle physicists. Not everyone is so sure.
