The swarms of tiny robots can work together to self-replicate or build larger structures, according to MIT researchers
With its deep-space data relay network performing better than expected, NASA has set up a live video stream from the Orion capsule as it heads toward lunar orbit.
As NASA’s Orion capsule swung out from behind the moon Monday, onboard cameras sent back a picture of Earth — a blue dot surrounded by blackness.
The West Coast will benefit from a large dome of high pressure helping to provide clear skies for the Leonid meteor Shower. However, much of the U.S. is facing cold temperatures that will make sky gazing a winter sport.
“We have discovered an amazing number of potentially new species living in this remote marine park,” the institute’s chief scientist Dr. Tim O’Hara said.
Nearly 50 years after the last men walked on the moon, NASA is one step closer to sending the first woman. The Artemis I mission blasted off early Wednesday on an ambitious test flight of the agency’s new moon rocket and capsule.
NASA says a risky repair job appears to have fixed the hydrogen fuel leak that threatened to delay a third attempt to send the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft on a test flight known as Artemis I, and liftoff could be minutes away.
The Artemis I mission’s rocket engines and boosters have direct ties to Columbia, Challenger and each of the other shuttles, and even one of the original Mercury 7 astronauts.
“It became clear that the specimen was unlike any species paleontologists had seen before,” geology professor Scott Persons told FOX Television Stations.
The NASA manager in charge of the remains of both lost space shuttles said it's one of the biggest pieces of Challenger ever found in the decades since the accident.
NASA managers decided earlier this week to leave the 322-foot-tall moon rocket and Orion spacecraft on Launch Pad 39B, where it has been since the rollout on Nov. 4.
Where do you think this stunning photograph was taken?
Florida is preparing for impacts from Subtropical Storm Nicole. The system will soak the Space Coast and bring hurricane-strength winds near where NASA's Artemis 1 rocket is awaiting liftoff.
Cameras strapped to the dorsal fins of tiger sharks in addition to human surveys helped researchers map out and measure the expansive seagrass bed.
The Sonoran Desert toad, also known as the Colorado River toad, secretes toxins that can make people sick and even kill a full-grown dog, officials say.
Totality will last nearly 1 1/2 hours — from 5:16 a.m. to 6:41 a.m. EST — as Earth passes directly between the moon and sun.
The San Antonio Zoo's Herpetology team sent over 18,000 Puerto Rican-crested toad tadpoles in late October to be released into the wild, more than triple the previous record.
Researchers in Australia tested several non-stick pots and pans and mimicked cooking and cleaning processes with steel and wooden spatulas and steel wool scrubbers.
Astronomers have discovered the closest known black hole to Earth, just 1,600 light-years away.
The sun is showcasing a very smiley jack-o'-lantern appearance just in time for Halloween.
