Researchers are still baffled by an unidentified flying object videotaped in Long Island, New York, months ago. The boomerang-shaped craft, which some believe was a drone, was filmed by an unidentified witness late on April 17.
Researchers have honed laser technology to be able to slow, stop, and reverse the rotation of an asteroid-like target in a simulated space environment. The findings could potentially help deflect Earth-bound asteroids in the event of a major-impact threat.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has released images of a shimmering "cosmic butterfly," or the Twin Jet Nebula, made up of an aging star's exposed core and a smaller star that create an illuminating rainbow in space.
A neutrino observatory based in Antarctica has confirmed the detection of massless particles deep within the South Pole’s ice. They were created from astrophysical sources like black holes and exploding stars throughout the Milky Way and beyond.
With its interest in manned missions to the Moon and Mars, NASA is looking for renewable ways to feed its astronauts for the long haul. So the space agency granted $200,000 a year to a project that recycles human poop into man-made food.
Professor Stephen Hawking is hosting an “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit, and it promises to be out of this world. Based on the questions posed so far, the famed physicist will answer user questions on artificial intelligence, alien life and much more.
NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has sent back to Earth the amazing and detailed photos of Pluto and its satellite Charon for the first time. They turned out to be far from dull balls of ice, with high mountains and deep canyons.
