    Carroll stargazer one of few to use Hubble
    The Hubble Space Telescope has been gazing into deep and distant outer space and creating striking images for 25 years but in all that time it has been mostly professional scientists who have had the opportunity to train the Hubble's mirrors on distant...
  • Spacecraft closing in on Pluto hits speed bump, but recovers

    NASA's New Horizons spacecraft is on track to sweep past Pluto next week despite hitting a "speed bump" that temporarily halted science collection. A computer overload prompted the spacecraft to partially shut down on July 4th — just days before...

    SpaceX rocket explosion not likely to slow launches for long
    SpaceX's rocket explosion last week may only briefly slow the company's ambitious launch schedule at Cape Canaveral but it could also give a boost to its competitors, experts say. On June 28, a Falcon 9 rocket, launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force...
  • Pluto probe back on track for flyby after timing flaw

    Pluto probe back on track for flyby after timing flaw
    The New Horizons team can take a collective deep breath after a brief loss of communication with the spacecraft, for now. The probe is less than ten days from its July 14 Pluto flyby. Mission operations at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics...
