Space is a seemingly infinite world of wonder and discovery, filled with mysterious black holes, stunning solar flares, elusive exoplanets and countless cosmic oddities. Our team of expert science writers and editors are ready to hold a James Webb Space Telescope-size lens beyond Earth, keeping those on this planet up to date with the latest space news, articles and features.
A new solution to Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity suggests hypothetical gravitational stars that look like black holes could be nested within one another.
Data collected by the James Webb Space Telescope shows that, like Pluto, the dwarf planets Eris and Makemake could be geologically active, which changes what we know about their chances of harboring life.
Review The Vaonis Vespera II is one of the most budget-friendly smart telescopes, ideal for beginners — we think it's one of the best smart telescopes ever released.
More than 50 years after the Apollo era, major governments and well-funded private companies still struggle with lunar landing missions. Why is landing on the moon so hard in 2024?
February's 'Snow Moon', the second full moon of 2024, will be the farthest from Earth this year and will appear the smallest in the sky when it rises on Saturday (Feb. 24).
Intuitive Machines successfully landed its spacecraft on the moon's south pole in a historic mission that puts the U.S. back on lunar soil for the first time in over 50 years.
A hyperactive sunspot recently unleashed its third X-class flare in under 24 hours. The X6 flare is the most powerful since 2017 and could be followed by equally massive explosions.
From nebulas and black holes to baby star nurseries and ancient collisions, the universe has never looked more beautiful thanks to NASA's $10 billion-telescope.
Two X-class solar flares arrived at Earth last night and early this morning. The radiation bursts coincided with massive cellphone service outages across the U.S., but experts urge that the events may not be related.
