Washington [US], October 1 (ANI): The path that ExoMars 2022 will follow to reach the Red Planet is set. The trajectory that will take the spacecraft from Earth to Mars in 264 days foresees a touchdown on the Martian surface on 10 June 2023, at around 17:30 CEST (15:30 UTC).
Washington [US], September 29 (ANI): A study of comet motions indicates that the solar system has a second alignment plane. Analytical investigation of the orbits of long-period comets shows that the aphelia of the comets, the point where they are farthest from the Sun, tend to fall close to

Washington [US], September 26 (ANI): The Chang'e-4 lunar lander touched down on the far side of the Moon on 3 January 2019, with a German instrument for measuring space radiation on board. Since then, the Lunar Lander Neutron and Dosimetry (LND) instrument has been measuring temporally resol
Washington [US], September 26 (ANI): Computer simulations are showing astrophysicists how massive clumps of gas within galaxies scatter some stars from their orbits, eventually creating the smooth, exponential fade in the brightness of many galaxy disks.
Massachusetts [US], September 23 (ANI): Recent science missions and results are bringing the search for a life closer to home, and scientists at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard, and Smithsonian (CfA) and the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) may have figured out how to determine wh
Washington [US], September 23 (ANI): A small near-Earth asteroid (or NEA) will briefly visit Earth's neighbourhood on Thursday, September 24, zooming past at a distance of about 13,000 miles (21,000 kilometres) above our planet's surface.
Washington [US], September 23 (ANI): The center of our Milky Way galaxy is too distant for us to visit in person, but we can still explore it. Telescopes give us a chance to see what the galactic center looks like in different types of light. By translating the inherently digital data (in th

Washington [US], September 14 (ANI): The detection more than a decade ago by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope of an excess of high-energy radiation in the centre of the Milky Way convinced some physicists that they were seeing evidence of the annihilation of dark matter particles, but a t

Washington [US], September 11 (ANI): One-hundred million light-years away from Earth, an unusual supernova is exploding. That exploding star -- which is known as 'Supernova LSQ14fmg' -- was the faraway object discovered by a 37-member international research team led by Florida State Universi
Washington [US], September 11 (ANI): The universe's funhouse mirrors are revealing a difference between how dark matter behaves in theory and how it appears to act in reality.
Washington [US], September 11 (ANI): Jupiter's moons are hot. Well, hotter than they should be, for being so far from the Sun. In a process called tidal heating, gravitational tugs from Jupiter's moons and the planet itself stretch and squish the moons enough to warm them. As a result, some
