Scientists have discovered a mysterious lump on the moon’s far side, and it’s 5 times bigger than Hawaii’s Big Island
Gravitational data suggest the anomaly is the metallic core of a giant asteroid that's hiding 190 miles beneath the lunar South Pole-Aitken Basin.
The moon has taken a beating since it formed 4.5 billion years ago. A new study shows the past 290 million years have been especially brutal.
A scientist at NASA has figured out exactly where China landed its historic lunar mission on the moon’s far side
China successfully landed its Chang'e 4 rover and lander on the moon's far side near its South Pole. This graphic highlights the precise location.
NASA will dig for signs of alien life on Mars in Jezero Crater — the landing site for its 2020 rover
NASA picked a landing site for its new Mars 2020 rover: Jezero Crater. The giant impact basin the Martian equator may hide signs of microbial life.
A 5-billion-ton iron meteorite once slammed into Greenland — and scientists found its Paris-size crater under the ice
When a team of scientists studied a new map of Greenland's bedrock, they found a 16-mile-wide depression that looked like a gigantic blast crater.
The moon has ice on its surface in hundreds of places — and it could be the ‘first step in building a space economy’
The moon's cold, dark craters near its north and south poles contain water ice directly at the surface, a new study confirms. If the deposits are large enough, people or robots could harvest the water, split it into hydrogen and oxygen, fuel up rockets, and launch a new era of space exploration.
A small asteroid or comet recently struck Mars, possibly even a few months ago, leaving a cluster of craters and a giant black stain on the red planet.
