NASA’s future missions will shoot for an icy moon of Saturn, photograph the Big Bang, and more. Here’s what’s coming in the next 10 ...

NASA intends to return to the moon, continue on to Mars, and look for life near Saturn and Jupiter within 10 years. Its other plans go even further.

NASA’s $1 billion Dragonfly drone mission will look for signs of life on Saturn’s moon

NASA announced a billion dollar mission to explore Titan. The Dragonfly drone will aid the search for life on Saturn's largest moon.

NASA’s next $1 billion space mission will be an alien-hunting nuclear helicopter that flies around Saturn’s icy moon Titan

Dragonfly will use plutonium-238 — a radioactive substance made during the Cold War — to power flights around a gassy, icy, and maybe habitable world.

Jupiter, Saturn and the moon will align in a rare phenomenon from June 14 to 19 – here’s when you can see it in Singapore

The phenomenon will take place while the moon is in its "waxing gibbous" phase and can be best viewed after 11pm, said Science Centre Singapore.

Saturn's moon Enceladus sprays saltwater into space from a hidden ocean. NASA's Cassini probe in 2015 "tasted" organic molecules in the water while flying through the icy plume.

NASA ‘tasted’ complex organic compounds in a blast of water from one of Saturn’s moons — and can’t yet rule out the poss...

Enceladus, an ice-encrusted moon of Saturn, hides an ocean of saltwater that blasts ice into space. NASA flew its Cassini spacecraft through the ice geysers in 2015, and scientists detected complex organic molecules. Though not proof of alien life, it's a good sign for the habitability of Enceladus.

A ‘planet parade’ is coming Thursday morning, when Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, and Pluto will line up — here’s how to see it
