NASA is actively monitoring a strange anomaly in Earth's magnetic field: a giant region of lower magnetic intensity in the skies above the planet, stretching out between South America and southwest Africa.
The U.S. Justice Department has opened a criminal probe into whether NASA's former head of human spaceflight gave Boeing Co improper guidance during a lucrative lunar-lander contract competition, two people familiar with the matter said on Friday.
Ceres, the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, is an "ocean world" with a big reservoir of salty water under its frigid surface, scientists said in findings based on data obtained by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft.
Ceres, a dwarf planet in our solar system, may be a geologically active ocean world with salty water below its surface, according to new research.
The two NASA astronauts who rode to the International Space Station aboard SpaceX's new Crew Drago are due to return on Sunday after a nearly four-month voyage that marked NASA's first crewed mission from home soil in nine years.
The SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft shoved off from the International Space Station on Saturday with two US astronauts on board, beginning their journey back to Earth despite a storm threatening Florida.
NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, who flew to the International Space Station in SpaceX's new Crew Dragon capsule, splashed down in the Gulf of Mexico after a two-month voyage that was NASA's first crewed mission from home soil in nine years.
SpaceX on Tuesday successfully completed a flight of less than a minute of the largest prototype ever tested of the future rocket Starship, which the company hopes to use one day to colonise Mars.
The two NASA astronauts brought back to Earth on Sunday said they felt they were inside the belly of a beast as it careened into the atmosphere at 17,500 mph.
Two NASA astronauts are back home in Houston after a historic return to Earth. It was the first splashdown by U.S. astronauts in 45 years, and the first comm...
NASA's latest Mars rover, Perseverance, is set for launch today on an astrobiology mission to look for signs of ancient microbial life, and to fly a helicopter-drone on another world for the first time.
NASA's next-generation Mars rover Perseverance blasted off from Florida's Cape Canaveral on Thursday atop an Atlas 5 rocket on a $2.4 billion mission to search for traces of potential past life on Earth's planetary neighbour.
NASA spaceship Mars 2020, carrying the Perseverance rover, is experience technical difficulties and is running on essential systems only, the agency said. Data indicate the spacecraft had entered a state known as safe mode, likely because a part of the spacecraft was a little colder than expected.
Other solar systems could have large numbers of planets that are home to alien life, a new study has found. The research suggests that other parts of the universe could be host to numerous planets that are habitable, unlike our solar system, where just one of the worlds has the right conditions for life to thrive. Scientists looking for life elsewhere in the universe regularly
NASA launched its Perseverance rover on a seven-month journey to Mars, where it will search for signs of past life on the red planet. CBS News' Chris Martine...

Two 14-year-old girls from India have discovered an Earth-bound asteroid by poring through images from a University of Hawaii telescope. They have been receiving training at the SPACE India private institute.
NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover, set for lift off this Thursday, is the space agency’s most advanced Martian probe yet. Its super-sanitised sample return tubes — for rocks that could hold evidence of past Martian life — are the cleanest items ever bound for space.
The Hubble space telescope has spent the past 30 years orbiting 547 km (340 miles) above Earth. The ageing satellite has had a couple of hiccups in the last few years, but it's not done taking incredible photos of our cosmic backyard yet.
Scientists have identified 37 volcanic structures on Venus that appear to be recently active - and probably still are today - painting the picture of a geologically dynamic planet and not a dormant world as long thought.
Researchers from University of Warwick in the UK rediscovered the planet named NGTS-11b using the Next-Generation Transit Survey (NGTS) telescopes in Chile. The planet was originally found in 2018 using data from NASA’s TESS telescope which scans for a dip in light from the star to identify a planet.
The US wants to build nuclear power plants that will work on the moon and Mars, and on Friday put out a request for ideas from the private sector on how to do that.
A solar probe built by the European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA has delivered the closest photos ever taken of the sun's surface, revealing a landscape rife with thousands of tiny solar flares that scientists dubbed "campfires" and offering clues about the extreme heat of the outermost part of its atmosphere.
NASA executed its third spacewalk in a mission to replace old batteries on the International Space Station. Launched in 2017, the mission aimed to replace 48 power units. A fourth spacewalk is scheduled next week for other tasks.
A huge asteroid is making its way toward Earth and it will pass by our planet next week. Dubbed as Asteroid 2020 ND, it is classified as Near-Earth Object (NEO) and Potentially Hazardous Asteroid (PHA) by NASA.
