NASA launched one of its largest sounding rockets Sunday from an East Coast facility in an experiment led by a University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute space physics professor.
Mini-Neptune exoplanets could shed their atmospheres as they age, thus ‘leaping the radius gap’ and explaining why mid-sized planets seem to be missing from our catalogs.
The desire to understand space and reach beyond the limits of Earth's atmosphere has provided us with the ideal platform to study our planet and combat our most pressing challenge: climate change.
Water production on the surface of the Moon is now feasible thanks to a chemical-physical process that allows oxygen to be extracted from regolith (lunar sand).
Physicists have found a previously undiscovered phenomenon called ‘diffuse auroral erasers’ while analyzing a video of auroras recorded in 2002.
New research reveals that active volcanoes on Mars were not restricted to the planet’s distant history as previously believed.
Simulations of the interior of Saturn have revealed a connection between the planet’s magnetic field and its thick shell of helium rain.
