On Thursday, NASA released the first complete picture of Pluto's crescent from the New Horizons probe. The probe captured the image with its Multi-spectral Visible Imaging Camera (MVIC) on July 14, fifteen minutes after closest approach to the planet. After nine years' journey, New Horizons made closest approach to Pluto on July 14 and released the first co...

The blue haze of Pluto. (Image: NASA.)After Mars, NASA announces water ice on Pluto
NASA released yesterday the first coloured pictures of Pluto's blue atmosphere and water ice on the surface taken by the space probe New Horizons. NASA said the haze particles may be grey or red in colour, but the scattering of light producing blue colour indicates the size of the particles. Smaller particles results in the scattering of the blue light. Scien...

On Monday, NASA announced that signs of liquid water have been found on Mars. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft found evidence of the liquid on the Martian surface, in long dark spots on the Red Planet thought to be formed because of water flow. In a news conference, NASA's planetary science director, Jim Green said, "We now know Mars was once a plan...

On Tuesday, NASA's space probe New Horizons reached near Pluto. It was launched about nine-and-a-half years ago on January 19, 2006 to collect data about the dwarf planet, amongst other targets. With its flyby on Tuesday it became the first spacecraft to explore Pluto closely. NASA collected data regarding the geology of the planet. The space probe had seven ...

Scientists find ancient solar system in Milky Way ga...
They said the system dates roughly to the formation of the Milky Way galaxy. They found the planets orbiting around Kepler-444, about 117 light years from Earth. Researchers investigated Kepler-444 with NASA's Kepler telescope using a method called asteroseismology. Scientists explain they studied the star and noticed planets passing in front of it because ...

The launch was postponed from Tuesday because of a technical issue on the second stage of the rocket. The shipment includes replacements for cargo aboard the spaceship Cygnus, destroyed during a failed launch in October. Cygnus belonged to the rival Orbital Sciences Corporation. SpaceX tried unsuccessfully to land the Falcon 9 delivery rocket for reuse. The r...

On Wednesday, George Djorgovski and collaborators reported in the journal Nature on an unusual light signal they say suggests two supermassive black holes are merging, a phenomenon never seen before, though theorized. The discovery could clarify how black holes merge and galaxies evolve, and could also provide a better understanding of the so-called "final ...

Re-locating to Mars sounds a little farfetched, but the team at Mars One disagrees. Mars One is a project that plans to re-settle humans on Mars by 2025. Recent developments from the project are pushing their plans into motion. Lockheed Martin, the contractors that are building the Orion spacecraft for NASA are also contracted by Mars One to build a sate...
