The New Shepard spacecraft carrying Jeff Bezos won't reach Earth's orbit, and there won't be anybody flying it.
Hubble engineers thought the issue was an old memory module. But that was just a symptom of the real problem - which NASA still hasn't identified.
Hubble is hibernating to protect its scientific instruments while NASA troubleshoots the computer that controls them.
After a near-miss earlier this month, several other startups said Elon Musk's plan would increase the risk of extraterrestrial collisions.
Supermoons are rare full moons that occur when the moon is the closest it can get to Earth. According to NASA, there will be two supermoons in 2021.
The space junk, which people first thought was a meteor shower, was actually debris from a SpaceX mission, the National Weather Service said.
Millions of bits of junk rocket around Earth faster than bullets, threatening to collide with satellites and the space station.
Users of SpaceX’s Starlink satellite-internet service said how impressed they were with download speeds in snow and high-speed winds on the Reddit Starlink community. One user reported speeds reaching 175 Mbps in the colder air, which is 20 Mbps faster than usual. The Starlink terminal even withstood a user’s 175 […]
A perfect balance of events occurred for this planet to support life. That delicate state continues to this day where small changes can have huge impacts on the world. So what would it look like if things drastically changed? What if the Earth spun sideways instead? Or what would happen […]
There is no dark side of the moon – at least, not in the way you might think. A new animation by planetary scientist James O’Donoghue shows how sunlight falls across the moon as it orbits Earth, leaving a constantly moving shadow that he prefers to call “the Night Side.” […]
It’s a natural cycle: the Earth orbits the sun. But what if something catastrophic happened and we were knocked out of orbit? The sun’s gravity would quickly take hold of Earth and we’d go flying straight toward the sun. Turns out, you’d only have about one month to live, and […]
The full moon on Tuesday – also called the “snow moon” – will be the biggest and one of the brightest of 2019. The moon will look significantly larger than normal because it will be near its closest distance to Earth during its orbit around the planet. February’s “supermoon,” or […]
A city in China wants to launch an artificial moon into orbit by 2020. China’s moon would be far less massive than our current moon, but their ambitious idea made us wonder what would happen if Earth had a second moon that was the same mass as our current moon. […]
The Humanity Star is part of California-based company Rocket Lab’s entry into the global space-industry scene. The 65-sided, carbon-fibre, mirrored sphere launched over a month and a half ago and is finally visible from almost anywhere on Earth. But the glitzy sphere has another purpose: Rocket Lab aims to make […]
