NASA now says vast methane cloud over U.S. southwest is for real

A cloud of methane gas about the size of Delaware was detected over the Four Corners area of the American southwest years ago. The readings were so unusually high that NASA scientists dismissed them. A new study confirms the methane hotspot is real.

NASA gears up for close encounter between Mars and Comet

A mountain-sized comet will hurtle past Mars next weekend, providing not only a historically close encounter, but also a dramatic opportunity. More than one dozen NASA assets will observe Comet Siding Spring from different angles and in varying lights.

Antarctic ice melts causing shift in Earth's gravity

The effects of climate change are now so profound that gravity itself is changing. The European Space Agency (ESA) announced Friday that Antarctica has lost enough ice in only three years to cause a shift in the Earth's gravitational pull.

NASA to collaborate with India's space agency on Mars exploration

NASA and the Indian Space Research Organization, ISRO, announced Tuesday that they have signed agreements to consider areas of possible collaboration in Mars exploration and to launch a NASA-ISRO Earth-observing satellite mission.

Op-Ed: Mystery on Titan — Why did a feature in Titan’s sea disappear?

Sydney - Astronomers watching features on Saturn’s moon Titan were astonished to see a “land” feature simply disappear on photos from the Cassini spacecraft. This large feature, a peninsula on the Saturnian hydrocarbon “sea,” seems to have disappeared.

NASA rover collects first samples from Mars' Mount Sharp

The Mars mission rover Curiosity has successfully collected the first sample of the red planet's layered Mount Sharp after it drilled roughly 2.6 inches into its surface last Wednesday, September 24.

Moscow - Planetary geologists report evidence that Jupiter’s moon Europa shows signs of plate tectonics, shaping and moulding the moon’s surface similar to geological activity on Earth.

Newly discovered asteroid paying close visit to earth

A newly discovered asteroid will be paying a visit Sunday night as it zips remarkably close to earth over New Zealand at approximately 2:18 p.m. EDT (18:18 UTC/GMT).

NASA studying extent of Arctic ice loss

The project is called ARISE (Arctic Radiation-IceBridge Sea and Ice Experiment), and is NASA's first large-scale campaign to study in-depth the summer sea ice retreat on the Arctic's climate. The mission started on Aug. 28 and will end Oct. 1, 2014.

Saturn jumps in for a photobomb of the moon

Sydney - In a rare moment of celestial fun, the sixth planet from the sun decided to drop in for a photobomb of Earth's moon on Monday night.

NASA: 'impossible' engine could change space travel forever

Roger Shawyer may soon be getting a lot of attention. When he first built what is now called the EmDrive, no one took it seriously. That started to change in 2012 after a team of Chinese scientists built it themselves, and it worked.

NASA's Mars 2020 rover to unlock more Martian secrets

Washington - NASA’s successor to the Mars Curiosity rover will head to the red planet in 2020 carrying a payload of scientific instruments that will explore Mars as never before.

NASA tests robotics and laser-powered drills for Europa mission

Anchorage - Jupiter's icy moon Europa is the next target for some NASA scientists. Scientists are testing a robot equipped with a drill powered by laser energy carried through a fiber-optic wire.

Earth is heating up: 2013 smashes climate records

Maunaloa - Climate data shows that temperatures worldwide are continuing to rise and 2013 was no different, according to a report released July 17 by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

'Good luck and Godspeed' — 45 years after the Apollo 11 launch

Houston - Mission 5 of the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) is scheduled to launch to the space station on July 11. The investigations represent a diversity of subjects from bacteria to tadpole shrimp and locations from Massachusetts to Arizona.

Super Moon will rise on July 12

The first of three consecutive "Super Moons" will rise above the Earth's skyline on Saturday July 12, 2014. Get your cameras ready.

Op-Ed: NASA Mars landing in 2030s? Forget it, U.S. has lost its balls

Sydney - When you remember the sheer enthusiasm of the Moon landings, the vague babblings about Martian landings are to put it mildly, unimpressive. The march of progress in space has become a limp-wristed square dance.

Binary system planet first to be discovered using microlensing

Scientists with NASA have announced the rare discovery of a planet orbiting two red dwarf stars some 3,300 light-years away from earth.

NASA — Striving to pass the smell-test

Space is weird. Someone had to say it. Objects float. Temperatures fluctuate by hundreds of degrees. Cosmic rays carry enough radiation to make Chernobyl look like a walk in the park.

This is the Swift SMC mosaic at full resolution. About 250,000 ultraviolet sources appear in this mosaic of the Small Magellanic Cloud, which was assembled from 656 images taken by the Ultraviolet/Optical Telescope aboard NASA's Swift satellite. The 57-megapixel SMC image has a total exposure time of 1.8 days. The image includes light from 1,600 to 3,300 angstroms -- UV wavelengths largely blocked by Earth's atmosphere -- and has an angular resolution of 2.5 arcseconds. Viewing in the ultraviole

Using data from NASA's Kepler and Spitzer Space Telescopes, scientists made the most precise measurement yet of the size of a world outside our solar system, as illustrated in this artist's impression. The diameter of the exoplanet, dubbed Kepler-93b, is now known with an uncertainty of just one percent.

This diagram compares our own solar system to Kepler-22, a star system containing the first "habitable zone" planet discovered by NASA's Kepler mission. The habitable zone is the sweet spot around a star where temperatures are right for water to exist in its liquid form. Liquid water is essential for life on Earth. (NASA)
