An independent panel says NASA is underestimating the amount of time and money it will take to bring Mars rocks back to Earth in the coming decade.
Four astronauts arrived at Kennedy Space Center on Sunday for SpaceX’s second crew launch, coming up next weekend. For NASA, it marks the long-awaited start of regular crew rotations at the International Space Station, with private companies providing the lifts.
So much was collected that rocks got wedged in the rim of the container and jammed it open, allowing some samples to escape. Whatever is left won't arrive at Earth until 2023.
In a pair of studies published Monday, scientists say more than 15,400 square miles of lunar terrain near the poles could trap water in the form of ice. That's 20% more area than previously thought.
The sample container on the end of the robot arm penetrated so deeply into the asteroid and with such force that rocks got sucked in and became wedged around the rim of the lid.
NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft crushed rocks and sent rubble flying as it briefly touched an asteroid, a strong indication that samples were collected for return to Earth, officials said Wednesday.
A NASA spacecraft has descended to an asteroid and momentarily touched the surface to collect a handful of cosmic rubble for return to Earth. It was a first for the U.S.
After almost two years circling an ancient asteroid hundreds of millions of miles away, a NASA spacecraft this week will attempt to descend to the treacherous, boulder-packed surface and snatch a handful of rubble.
A newly discovered asteroid is headed our way, but NASA says the space rock will zoom safely past Earth on Thursday.
Scientists who sent bulked-up, mutant "mighty mice" to the International Space Station say the animals held onto their muscle during the monthlong flight.
