The stunningly innovative designs, which NASA calls greener flying machines for the year 2025, are being developed by three firms, all based in California.
Nanosensor technology could allow for Siri to one day answer this question because NASA has built a cancer detecting mobile phone sensor at the Ames Research facility in California. Ames scientific researcher Jing Li is working on a small chip the size of a nickel that includes 32 of the amazing nanosensors. They are all made of different kinds of materials, and that lets them interact with different chemicals in unique ways.
Pink Floyd fans rejoice! NASA released a video Wednesday showing the dark side of the moon, the title of the rock band's classic 1973 album.
The stunning footage was captured by a camera on board one of NASA's twin Gravity Recovery And Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) lunar spacecraft.
NASA's Interstellar Boundary Explorer probe has detected particles of neon and oxygen that did not originate in our solar system, and this tells us a bit more about what our galaxy is made of, NASA said in a release Jan. 31. The probe, called IBEX for short, is meant to study the mysterious boundaries of our solar system, the edge of the sun's atmosphere called the heliosphere.
The Philippines’ Puerto Princesa Underground River is now officially confirmed as a part of the New7Wonders of nature, the head of a global competition said on Saturday.
NASA released a stunning image of Earth, shot from the International Space Station (ISS) when it flew roughly 240 miles overhead, capturing the dazzling city lights of Europe at night.
The asteroid 2012 BX34 passed within 36,750 miles of Earth at 10:30 a.m. ET on Friday. That was its closest approach. The small asteroid, about 37 feet wide, would have broken up in the Earth's atmosphere before it could have made impact anyway, so it never really posed a threat, according to NASA.
Scientists across the world are doing their part in preventing asteroid collisions. Nevertheless, popular doomsday prophecies will not go away.
Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum tackled a broad range of foreign, domestic and social issues during last night's debate, from immigration law and foreign policy to Romney's link to Obamacare and whose wife would make the best first lady. Relive the highlights of the CNN Florida Republican debate, and get a rundown of the top quotes and biggest arguments of the night.
NASA announced on Thursday that an asteroid, 2012 BX34, will pass very close near Earth today, Friday, Jan. 27 thought it does not pose a threat. It's one of the closest approaches recorded, Gareth Williams, associate director of the US-based Minor Planet Center, said.
A tankless toilet so inspired Japan's Panasonic Corp. that the company will end their production of water-logged toilets and focus on the design alternative.
Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich called on Wednesday for a base on the moon and an expanded federal purse for prize money to stimulate private-sector space projects.
The 2012 solar storm may have created a spectacular show of northern lights for sky watchers, but it caused great inconvenience for airlines, such as Delta, Quantas and Air Canada, forcing them to divert some of their Arctic flights.
Several airlines were forced to divert flight patterns as radiation from a massive solar storm hit earth. The 2012 storm is the biggest in nearly a decade, according to scientists at NASA.
The material from Sunday's solar storm created a spectacular art show of northern lights on Tuesday. The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Weather Prediction Center said the the solar storm was the strongest in more than eight years.
