NASA is all set to begin the most awaited and also the toughest rover challenge. The competition challenges students to solve engineering problems, design rovers and much more. NASA’s Human Exploration Rover Challenge,  highlights NASA’s goals for future exploration to Mars and beyond. Nearly 99 high school and college teams will put their skills to the test from March 30 to April...
A study based on Cassini's observation has stunned the scientists at NASA. The recent study, published in journal Icarus, shows, how the hydrocarbon lakes and seas of Titan erupt occasionally with dramatic patches of bubbles. Researchers at NASA's JPL, simulated the frigid surface conditions on Titan. They found that significant amounts of nitrogen can be dissolved in the extremely cold liquid...
Atacama Dessert in Chile is one of the favourite places for NASA. Although NASA doesn't have a laboratory there, they do perform potential experiments. In a region about 100 km south of Antofagasta, which averages 3,000 m in elevation, the soil has been compared to that of Mars. Due to its extreme dryness and stony terrain it is one of the most important...
Saturn's icy moon is cold outside but warmer inside. Enceladus, the icy moon has now given a new dimension to the scientist regarding its geology. A new study in the journal Nature Astronomy reported that the south polar region of Saturn's icy moon Enceladus is warmer than expected, just a few feet below its icy surface. This, thereby suggests that...
NASA reported that finding derelict spacecraft and space debris in Earth’s orbit is a technological challenge. And detecting these objects orbiting around our moon is even more difficult. These small objects hide in the bright glare of the moon, making the detection difficult. However, after great efforts, NASA has successfully located spacecrafts orbiting the moon. Marina Broaović, radar scientist and principal investigator...
US space bureau NASA has said that it has postponed the launch of Orbital ATK’s seventh commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS). The Orbital ATK Cygnus cargo will not be launched any before long than March 21, said NASA. NASA’s Orbital ATK's Cygnus cargo mission was a bit previous scheduled to be launched on March 19. Orbital...
The study of existence of life on the planets and their moons in the solar system is an ever growing field. NASA is already studying habitability of several planets. NASA is sending a mission to Jupiter's icy moon, Europa. This mission aims to find whether the planet's moon is habitable. The mission now gets a formal name. NASA has named the...
Cassini is up in the news for a new reason. This time its not about Saturn or its rings, its about the planet’s moon. Pan, named after a mythological character, the god of shepherds is the second innermost moon of Saturn. Mark R. Showalter discovered this back in 1990. The first images of the moon dates back to 1981. NASA’s Cassini...
This year proves to be bright one for scientists working for the mission 'Dawn'. The space craft has brought smiles, yet again. Dawn, NASA's mission to the dwarf planet Ceres, captured a bright spot in the planet in early 2015. Since then several researches are going on regarding this spot. According to the scientists, the bright central area in Occator...
The International Space Station will receive a very cold gift from the scientists in NASA. An ice chest-sized box will find its place in space where it will create the coolest spot in the universe. This special box is equipped with lasers, a vacuum chamber and an electromagnetic knife. This will cancel out the energy of gas particle thereby slowing...
