  • SpaceX readies for launch at Cape Canaveral

    SpaceX readies for launch at Cape Canaveral
    SpaceX plans to try again Sunday night to land its used rocket on an unmanned barge in the Atlantic Ocean after launching it into space, an experiment seen as a big step toward making space launches dramatically less expensive. The company is...
  • NASA Langley is home base for major winter air pollution study

    NASA Langley is home base for major winter air pollution study
    Scientists have a handle on what happens to air pollution spewing from tailpipes and smokestacks in the summer when sunlight and moisture can quickly interact with and transform key pollutants. They know far less about what happens to those pollutants...
  • How life could develop in the methane lakes of Saturn's moon Titan

    How life could develop in the methane lakes of Saturn's moon Titan
    Scientists may be one step closer to understanding whether life could have formed in the methane lakes of Saturn's largest moon, Titan. This life, if it exists, would look very different from life on Earth. There is no oxygen on Titan, and the surface...
  • NASA Langley's ISAAC robot to help build next-gen aircraft, spacecraft

    NASA Langley's ISAAC robot to help build next-gen aircraft, spacecraft
    ISAAC turned its back on a crowd of dignitaries Monday, its bristly "head" facing the laboratory's opposite wall. Then — with its head held absolutely still — its sleek, articulated, bowed body began to waggle slowly back and forth, back and...

    NASA spacecraft making first visit to dwarf planet Ceres
    A NASA spacecraft is about to reach the end of a nearly eight-year journey and make the first rendezvous with a dwarf planet. The Dawn craft will slip into orbit Friday around Ceres, a dwarf planet the size of Texas. Unlike robotic landings or other...
  • La NASA lanza satélites para estudiar campos magnéticos de la Tierra

    La NASA lanza satélites para estudiar campos magnéticos de la Tierra
    Un cohete Atlas 5 despegó de Florida el jueves con cuatro satélites científicos de la NASA diseñados para mapear explosiones de energía y partículas cargadas provocadas por campos magnéticos alrededor de la Tierra. El cohete, de una longitud equivalente...
  • NASA launches 4 spacecraft to solve magnetic mystery

    NASA launches 4 spacecraft to solve magnetic mystery
    NASA launched four identical spacecraft Thursday on a billion-dollar mission to study the explosive give-and-take of the Earth and sun's magnetic fields. The unmanned Atlas rocket — and NASA's Magnetospheric Multiscale spacecraft — soared...
  • Asteroids and comets play a role in Earth's past, future

    Asteroids and comets play a role in Earth's past, future
    Astronomer and author Phil Plait loves a good disaster flick. What he doesn't love is a disaster flick that gets the science so wrong it's silly. "In any science fiction movie, it's pretty hard to get all the science right," Plait said in a recent...
  • Atlas rocket to launch magnetic field satellites

    Atlas rocket to launch magnetic field satellites
    An Atlas V rocket is scheduled to launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 10:44 p.m. Thursday night carrying satellites designed to help scientists understand magnetic storms in space. The Air Force is projecting a 70 percent chance of...
  • Orion gets ready for its close-up

    Orion gets ready for its close-up
    After its successful test flight in December, the Orion crew capsule is getting its heat shield stripped to ship off for more tests at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton. At NASA Langley, the heat shield will be attached to a test article —...

    Clash of the billionaires: Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos duking it out over space
    A panel of administrative judges at an obscure federal agency ruled this week that a largely behind-the-scenes clash of billionaire entrepreneurs Elon Musk and Jeffrey Bezos can continue. The dispute centers on a patent awarded to Bezos's Blue Origin...
