Some of the coolest discoveries made by NASA — like the personality of Martian soil, for instance — are often so small in scale that it’s easy to forget just how big many things in space really are. A new discovery made by researchers working with data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory h...
From the perspective of us here on Earth, clouds are usually pretty boring. Sure, sometimes we spot one that looks cool or see a unique formation that we take a photo of for Instagram and then move on with our lives. But for astronauts and satellite cameras looking down on the planet from above...
Such events can be hazardous to the economy and national security While major geomagnetic storms are rare, with only a few recorded per century, there is significant potential for large-scale impacts when they do occur. Extreme space weather can be viewed as hazards for the economy and national sec...
The researchers behind NASA’s Cassini mission to Saturn are relieved, and a bit mystified, to discover that the narrow gap between the giant planet and its rings is virtually devoid of stray particles. The discovery comes from the bus-sized Cassini spacecraft’s first dive through the gap on...
A newly discovered planet around a distant star may jump to the top of the list of places where scientists should go looking for alien life. ...
NASA scientists have dubbed the space between Saturn’s rings “the big empty,” after gaining readings from the Cassini spacecraft. During the first of its final dives, Cassini revealed the void between the rings is largely dust-free, much to the surprise of scientists analyzing the results. Cas...
Space X's Martian ambitions are making people think seriously about colonizing space. But the Red Planet may not be the best place to start the first space settlement. Science fiction has long painted space settlements as inevitable, and talk of Martian brick-building and life-supporting gardens mak...

The NSA is stopping its use of one controversial surveillance technique that impacts Americans' privacy. Make no mistake. This is good news for anyone who wants government surveillance to follow the law. But there’s much more to be done to rein in unconstitutional spying. Initially reported by&nbs...
A new technique for studying exoplanet atmospheres could make it possible for scientists to get a close look at the atmosphers of planets like Proxima b in the 2020s. A newly proposed technique could make it possible to search for life on alien planets much sooner than scientists had expected.  ...
Amigo, a white robot the size of a person, uses information gathered by other robots to move towards a table to pick up a carton of milk and deliver it to an imaginary patient in a mock hospital room at the Technical University of Eindhoven, Netherlands, Wednesday Jan. 15, 2014. A group of five of E...

The National Security Agency campus in Fort Meade, Md.CreditPatrick Semansky/Associated Press WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency said Friday that it had halted one of the most disputed practices of its warrantless surveillance program, ending a once-secret form of wiretapping that dates to ...
Breaking a 10-year monopoly by United Launch Alliance (ULA), SpaceX will launch a satellite into orbit on a classified mission tomorrow morning (April 30) from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and the company will attempt to land the Falcon 9 rocket's first stage again after use. You can&n...
Over the course of the last decade, many companies have tried to make the smartphone-to-desktop dream a reality with varying degrees of success. Microsoft, for example, launched Continuum alongside the Lumia 950 to considerable fanfare a few years ago, though most users felt limited by its...
LOS GATOS, Cali. — As Netflix continues to produce billions of dollars’ worth of original content, it’s easy to forget that the company’s business model is firmly rooted in the delivery of digital content, served with as little friction as possible. For Los Gatos, California-based Netfl...

What would it take to hide an entire planet? It sounds more like a question posed in an episode of “Star Trek” than in academic discourse, but sometimes the bleeding edge of science blurs with themes found in science fiction. Of course we’ve been leaking our own position to distant stars via r...
The “incredibly brave” people who make the first journey to Mar will need somewhere to live. And an engineer has discovered a way to make bricks from the planet’s red soil without a kiln or any other ingredients. Instead, the bricks could be made be simply pounding the soil with a hammer, acco...
The last couple months have seen a welcome change in the wireless industry. Instead of massively confusing bills and data caps, we’ve had prices slashed across the board and unlimited data plans for all. But thanks to the unending drive for consolidation and profits, the good times aren’t going ...
Wi-Fi technology has only been around for a couple of decades, but demand for high-speed public access has exploded over the last few years. Now, devices can easily connect to the internet at millions of public hotspots worldwide -- which some analysts estimate could grow eight-fold to 300 million h...
Google Earth’s new update will take you anywhere in the world Can’t afford that trip abroad this summer? Don’t fret: Google’s huge update will get you as up close as possible. “Voyager” will give you dozens of curated journeys around the world. Each voyage has a theme, like “World’s ...
Mars bears the scars of five giant impacts, including the ancient giant Borealis basin (top of globe), Hellas (bottom right), and Argyre (bottom left). A new study suggests that Mars experienced a 400-million-year lull in impacts between the formation of Borealis and the younger basins. Credit: Univ...
NASA has long been a leader in understanding the science of space weather, including research into the potential for induced electrical currents to disrupt our power systems. Last year, NASA scientists worked with scientists and engineers from research institutions and industry during a pair of inte...
