When a stream of charged particles known as the solar wind careens onto the Moon’s surface at 450 kilometers per second (or nearly 1 million miles per hour), they enrich the Moon’s surface in...
Results from SOFIA reveal new clues to how stars form, galaxies evolve, and take one step closer to understanding the environment of Europa and its subsurface ocean.
Scientists have discovered tadpole-shaped jets coming out of the Sun that may help explain why the corona (the wispy upper atmosphere of our star) is so inexplicably hot.
NASA has selected a new space mission that will help astronomers understand both how our universe evolved and how common are the ingredients for life in our galaxy’s planetary systems.
Two NASA spacecraft have been orbiting Earth for years, flying through a hazardous zone of charged particles called the Van Allen radiation belts. Now, they're starting a new and final phase in their...
Inside Earth's magnetic bubble, scientists have long been listening in on space sounds created by various electromagnetic waves, and now they've found one that booms like a drum.
Researchers using NASA’s SOFIA airborne telescope have found that cosmic dust, a building block of planets, forms in the wake of a supernova blast wave.
Earth's global surface temperatures in 2018 were the fourth warmest since 1880, according to independent analyses by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
