We often like to believe that the Universe is a pretty safe place, at least for our planet, but studying a little astronomy will change your mind fast. The asteroid belt located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter is ...

The possibility of a planet-killing asteroid appearing out of nowhere, as shown in current media, is slim. Even smaller ones that might merely destroy a city or part of a continent attract enough attention to determine whether they’re a danger. ...

The OSIRIS-REx spacecraft was designed to go to the asteroid Bennu, where it was to make a short landing on the body’s presumed rocky surface, gather a tiny sample, and then return to Earth. However, the mission was aborted due ...

While space agencies still have a lot of trouble figuring out how to send humans to the nearest planet, maybe landing them on an asteroid would be easier. Similar to how Bruce Willis’s character from the sci-fi Armageddon movie landed ...

Asteroids are basically relics from the time our Solar System was born, meaning roughly 4.5 billion years ago. Some of these asteroids are big enough to be potential threats. Others have even become the moons of some planets, even though ...

There’s an enormous asteroid on its way to Earth, and NASA is watching it closely. Asteroid 388945 (2008 TZ3) is expected to approach Earth on May 15th, according to NASA. Up to 1,608 feet in width is expected for the ...

NASA informs the world about another big space rock. It’s not mandatory to be an astronomer to figure out that our planet would be very vulnerable in the face of an asteroid that surpasses ‘acceptable’ measurements. The asteroid that makes ...

It’s not a secret to anyone that the Solar System has plenty of giant asteroids that could impact our planet one day. Luckily, most of the space rocks that enter our planet’s atmosphere are small enough to be obliterated due ...

An asteroid impact 4.3 billion years ago caused havoc in the moon’s mantle, explaining why one side of the moon has more craters than the other. A recent study supports this theory. Per the International Astronomical Union, the moon has ...

Once again, something really hazardous has occurred! Just hours before it was due to strike Earth near the western coast of Greenland, the same astronomer who spotted Asteroid 2022 EB5 earlier this week has discovered yet another frightening asteroid. Asteroid ...
