Astronaut Matthias Maurer will soon be taking his first space trip, flying to the ISS aboard SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule. Here's how his training is going.
Glancing at the image below, it’s clear that there are huge numbers of stars in the Milky Way. Astronomers say that the galaxy is filled with streams of stars, but one of those streams appears to have nearly 500 stars inside. Astronomers, on a new study, have discovered 8292 stellar streams in the galaxy. While clusters of stars appear in … Continue reading

Anyone who’s ever visited the Grand Canyon in the United States knows how massive it is. The Grand Canyon certainly lives up to its name, but it’s got nothing on a canyon on the surface of Mars. NASA has released new images of the largest canyon in the solar system, which is nearly ten times as long as the Grand … Continue reading

NASA and ESA's telescope has an eye for gorgeous galaxy mergers.
Space exploration achieved several notable firsts in 2020 despite the COVID-19 pandemic, including commercial human spaceflight and returning samples of an asteroid to Earth. The coming year is shaping up to be just as interesting. Here are some of the missions to keep an eye out for. Artemis 1 Artemis 1 is the first flight of the Nasa-led, international Artemis program to return astronauts to the Moon by 2024. This will consist of an uncrewed Orion spacecraft which will be sent on a three-week flight around the Moon. IT will reach a maximum distance from Earth of 450,000 km – the… This story continues at The Next Web
Earth has a problem with orbiting space junk. Wooden satellites might be one way to avoid making the problem worse.
A joint ESA and NASA probe is on its way to the sun. The probe is called the Solar Orbiter, and on its trek towards the sun, it passed by Venus. Solar Orbiter completed its first flyby Venus about 7:39 AM Eastern time on Sunday, December 27. Anyone hoping for photographs of Venus from the Solar Orbiter will be disappointed. … Continue reading
NASA’s mission to take the Perseverance rover to Mars may be ambitious in its own right, but even that pales in comparison to the US space agency’s incredible plan to bring samples of Martian rock back to Earth. While Perseverance will join Curiosity, Sojourner, Spirit, and Opportunity as permanent residents of Mars, the samples the rover collects of soil and … Continue reading

On December 14, people in Chile and Argentina were able to view a total solar eclipse. What those viewing the eclipse didn’t know was that nearby was a speck flying past the sun. That little speck was a newly discovered comet that was first spotted in satellite data by an amateur astronomer from Thailand. The comet was discovered by Worachate … Continue reading
The European Space Agency (ESA)'s Solar Orbiter will be swinging by Venus this Christmas on its first gravity assist flyby.
NASA wants to collect a sample of the Martian rock and soil and to bring it back to Earth. Bringing rock from Mars to Earth is no easy matter, however.
Misleading processes and inadequate testing caused an inversion of steering, officer ESA has published its report into the loss of the Vega VV17 mission and said the screwup was due to an "inversion of electrical connections" during integration.…
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) As Chile and Argentina witnessed the total solar eclipse on Dec. 14, 2020, unbeknownst to skywatchers, a little tiny speck was flying past the Sun -- a recently discovered comet.
NASA and the European Space Agency hope to bring a small piece of Mars back to Earth, a project that just got a big approval to enter Phase A. NASA announced the decision today, stating that the Mars Sample Return (MSR) mission will ‘mature critical technologies’ needed for the effort, among other things. Bringing samples back to Earth from elsewhere … Continue reading
Space is a messy place. An estimated 34,000 pieces of junk over 10 cm in diameter are currently orbiting Earth at around 10 times the speed of a bullet. If one of them hits a spacecraft, the damage could be disastrous. In September, the International Space Station had to dodge an unknown piece of debris. With the volume of space trash rapidly growing, the chances of a collision are increasing. The European Space Agency (ESA) wants to clean up some of the mess — with the help of AI. In 2025, it plans to launch the world’s first debris-removing space mission: ClearSpace-1. The technology is being developed… This story continues at The Next Web
