Astronomers have released new photos of a as-yet unidentified object that has joined Earth’s orbit. The UFO created excitement earlier this week when it was revealed it was considered to be classified...

From its orbit approximately 160 miles (260km) above the surface, the NASA High Resolution Imaging Experiment (HiRISE) can detect objects only a metre in size. And US-based space agency NASA now believes...

An image from NASA has shown a spectacular and rare phenomenon which depicts one of the biggest and most violent collisions in the universe, as spotted by the space agency’s Chandra X-ray Observatory....

The impact creator is expected to help researchers understand how alien life could have once existed on Mars. A team has analysed samples from Nordlinger Ries, a 15 mile-wide meteor crater in south Germany. The...

“Potentially hazardous” NEOs (Near Earth Objects) are defined as space objects capable of coming within 0.05 astronomical units (4.7 milion miles / 7.5 million km) of the planet and measuring...

The asteroid is of such immense size the space rock is considered by some scientists as a largely preserved proto-planet. To put this size into context, at least three Vesta-size asteroids could be squeezed...

Mars is home to ghostly dust devils, surprisingly numerous Marsquakes suggesting a geologically active planet and it appears a bizarre glow illuminating its night sky. These only some of the key discoveries...

The Moon is often the brightest object in the night sky. However, many people know surprisingly little about the lunar cycle and may wonder why there is not a Full Moon every night or a lunar eclipse every...

On April 13, 2029, an icy chunk of space rock larger than the Eiffel Tower, will barrel past Earth at 67,108 mph (108,000 kmh) grazing the planet’s sphere of geostationary satellites. This will be...

Asteroids upset the environment and provide clues via the elements they leave behind. Asteroid experts have now linked elements that are enriched in the Cretaceous–Paleogene (KPg) boundary clays...

Astronomers have been astounded after detecting molecular oxygen more than half a billion light-years away. This is only the third such detection ever outside the solar system – and the first outside...

SpaceX will allow tourists to buy a seat onboard their Crew Dragon spacecraft. The cuting-edge capsule was designed to ferry NASA astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS). But the trip will...
