‘No image will surpass this’: Hubble telescope astronomers created a stunning picture of the deep universe with 16 years’ worth of p...
Researchers estimate the Hubble Space Telescope image includes 265,000 galaxies, some of which appear as they existed 13.3 billion years ago.
A photographer recorded Saturn ‘touching’ the moon with his smartphone, and the pictures are stunning
Grant Petersen of South Africa spent months preparing to photograph the conjunction of the moon and Saturn using a Galaxy S8 phone and a telescope.
The first ‘groundbreaking’ pictures of a black hole may be unveiled on Wednesday. Here’s what scientists think those images will loo...
Scientists are expected to unveil the first-ever pictures of a black hole's "shadow" caused by its event horizon.
A bizarre interstellar object called ‘Oumuamua continues to perplex astronomers a year after it vanished. Here’s why a few scientists stil...
'Oumuamua remains a mystery since its discovery. However, the idea that it's extraterrestrial is based on a lack of data, not extraordinary evidence.
Astronaut says a neglected telescope is NASA’s best chance of defending Earth from ‘city killer’ asteroids — ‘for God...
Astronaut Rusty Schweickart says the Near-Earth Object Camera telescope could locate most of the dangerous space rocks that NASA is mandated to find.
Astronomers found a ‘cold super-Earth’ less than 6 light-years away — and it may be the first rocky planet we’ll photograph be...
Astronomers think they've found a "cold super-Earth." It might be the first exoplanet they photograph with a coming generation of powerful telescopes.
The Kepler space telescope was launched in 2009 and has stared down more than 500,000 stars. But NASA says Kepler has run out of fuel.
NASA came up with 21 new constellations — including Albert Einstein, Godzilla, and the Starship Enterprise
The gamma-ray sky was invisible to humans until instruments like NASA's Fermi space telescope came along. That observatory has been mapping a previously unseen universe for a decade, so in honor of that milestone, scientists on the mission suggested 21 modern (and entertaining) constellations.
NASA’s Hubble space telescope just lost a vital part, and one of its backups is ‘acting drunk.’ Here’s why astronomers haven...
A vital part of the Hubble Space Telescope, which records stunning images of the universe, failed on Friday. The part is one of six gyroscopes that help the observatory stay pointed at celestial objects. Three others still work, but NASA may start using just one, limiting Hubble's observations.
The International Space Station sprang a leak yesterday — and it shows why a space junk disaster could cut off human access to space
The International Space Station briefly sprang a small leak, but NASA says the six-person crew in orbit is safe. A tiny piece of space trash may have caused the leak. Experts worry that a large hit could lead to a "Kessler syndrome" event that cuts off human access to space.
