City lights and lightning flashes among the clouds, known as airglow can be seen in a new stunning video released by NASA on Monday.
NASA’ NEOWISE mission (Near-Earth Object Wide-field Survey Explorer) has just released a worth of survey data, characterizing 439 near-Earth objects, out of those, 72 are newly discovered.
NASA has just released unearthed recordings of the moment that the Apollo 10 astronauts Eugene Cernan and John Young heard mysterious sounds while flying around the far side of the moon 47 years ago (May 1969).
Today, we want to share news about what space scientists want to discover in the future! Last week, NASA announced the 5 finalists for what may eventually be their next missions into space. The projects are all part of NASA’s Discovery program, which aims to launch low-cost, high-impact missions every few years.
In a recent study, NASA show that it would cost about ten times cheaper to organize a lunar mission today than it was 40 years ago. If in 1969 it was necessary to spend 25.4 billion sollars — around $95 billion in today’s money — to allow Neil Armstrong step foot on the moon, now it would cost no more than 9 billion euros.
NASA’ Former chief operating officer in Spain Carlos González Pintado says there could be life on Kepler-452b — the newly remarkable world discovered by NASA’ kepler mission — given its characteristics.
Soaring to the depths of our universe, gallant spacecraft roam the cosmos, snapping images of celestial wonders. Some spacecraft have instruments capable of capturing radio emissions. When scientists convert these to sound waves, the results are eerie to hear. We’ve put together a compilation of elusive “sounds” of howling planets and whistling helium that is sure to make your skin crawl.
NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has sent new high-resolution images of the dwarf planet Pluto, just days before its historic encounter on July 14, including one showing the four mysterious dark spots on the icy distant world.
NASA is planning to bring together Earth’s most brilliant experts from various scientific fields searching for alien life on habitable exoplanets, i.e planets beyond our solar system.
After searching out of 100000 galaxies for a particular signs of the presence of an advanced extraterrestrial civilization, a team of scientists using data from NASA’s WISE telescope have found no evidence of intelligent alien life.
Ever since our species discovered the existence of other planets beyond Earth, the question of whether we are alone in this universe has intrigued scientists and philosophers.
