The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), which serves as NASA’s “eye in the sky” in orbit around the Moon, has located the impact site of the unidentified rocket booster that crashed into the opposite side of the Moon on March 4, ...

In our solar system, Jupiter was one of the earliest planets to form, but we know very little about the process through which it came to be. Jupiter, according to a new scientific research, is the biggest planet in our ...

An undiscovered black hole lurking in the Milky Way galaxy may be the world’s tiniest ever, according to one calculation of its mass. An isolated stellar-mass black hole was discovered earlier this year by a team headed by Space Telescope ...

Trojan worlds, which are co-orbiting planets, have not yet been discovered outside of our solar system. According to recent research, it’s odd considering that we see them all the time in our own backyards. It is not uncommon to see ...

The cosmos is a diverse and complicated system with many unanswered questions. To yet, the mapping of the universe by astronomers has shown that tiny galaxies may be randomly scattered around their hosts. However, new research shows that these small ...

Water was previously thought to have been present on Mars for at least three billion years. NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, for example, detected salt crystals that suggest water may have existed as recently as two billion years ago. The Zhurong ...

Chinese scientists recently reported in the journal Joule that the lunar soil possesses active molecules capable of converting carbon dioxide into oxygen and energy. To help with human explorations of the moon and beyond, they’re now looking into lunar assets. ...

On the Moon, there exist molecules of water and ice, but how did these materials get up there? There’s a good chance that part of the water on the moon came from asteroids and comets colliding, but recent research reveals ...

Experts think that Europa’s subterranean lakes of salty water might be ideal locations to hunt for indications of life outside our planet’s atmosphere. Researchers uncovered evidence for the existence of tiny ponds under the Jovian moon’s frozen surface after seeing ...
