Recent research from NASA's Cassini mission has given a new insight on Enceladus, Saturn's icy, ocean-bearing moon. Researchers have found evidence that the moon's spin axis has reoriented. Examining the moon's features, the team showed that Enceladus appears to have tipped away from its original axis by about 55 degrees. This is more than halfway toward rolling completely onto its...
Space exploration was indeed a great breakthrough in the world of astronomy. NASA is all set to send its probe to the Sun which will take the world of astronomy and physics to the next higher level.

NASA's DSCOVR, launched in 2015, has been keeping the scientists busy in deciphering the flashes. The homeward-facing instrument, at least one million miles from Earth, has captured the unexpected flashes of light reflecting off Earth. Keen observers from outside NASA wrote in, questioning the source of these lights. NASA also received several mails questioning the sudden flashes. This lead the...
NASA's HUNCH (High school students United with NASA to Create Hardware) program's Culinary Challenge, held on April 20 saw several healthy as well as tasty recipes. The program helps NASA add several recipes to the cook-book for astronauts on-board. The competition held at Space Center Houston, saw twenty-eight teams of high school students participate in the preliminary level. Out of...
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has received and has begun reviewing 12 proposals for its future unnamed solar system exploration, the “New Frontiers” program. NASA’s New Frontiers program has already given rise to New Horizons mission to Pluto, the Juno mission to Jupiter, and OSIRIS-REx: the mission to asteroid Bennu. All the proposed missions of discovery -...
