Data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has revealed the presence of tunnels at the moon’s north pole that were once filled with lava but now store potentially vast quantities of frozen water.
The physiological mechanisms that work quite well on Earth to cool a person down during physical activity don’t function as efficiently in space.
Researchers have identified eight, massive sheets of ice just below the Martian surface, and they appear to be relatively young deposits.
Observed concentrations of methane in the atmosphere didn’t equal calculations from various sources, like oil and gas wells or tropical microbes. But a new study helps explain the discrepancy.
Astronomers studying 1I/2017 U1 ’Oumuamua, the first known interstellar object to visit our solar system, suggest that a crust protects its frozen insides.
Habitability on planets orbiting a star that is cooler and dimmer than our sun appears to be much less likely than previously thought, according to a new analysis of data from a NASA orbiter on Mars.
A pair of studies is calling into question the assumptions scientists make when determining if a planet outside of our solar system could support life.
The supermassive black hole formed during the earliest moments of the universe, which has researchers puzzled over how it got to be so big.
Conventional wisdom holds that Mars once had a thick atmosphere capable of supporting surface water. A new proposal is entirely different.
One of the planets, K2-18b, lies within the habitable zone that scientists believe could support the necessary conditions for life.
