Last month, NASA announced that Curiosity rover had wrapped up its work at Mars' Vera Rubin Ridge and would be making its way to a clay-rich region near the Red Planet's Mt. Sharp for additional work. In an update on that mission last week, the space agency shared a panoramic image captured by Curiosity's MastCam at the ridge drill site before it left, as well as an interactive video of the area.
After nearly 15 years, NASA's Opportunity Mars rover mission has come to an end. On Tuesday, the Space Flight Operations Facility at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California transmitted the final rescue command signals via the Goldstone Deep Space Complex in an attempt to revive the silent unmanned explorer, but there was no reply. As a result, the space agency announ
NASA's InSight lander continues to set up house on Mars and has now placed a domed shield over the Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS) instrument package that its robotic arm placed on the surface on December 19, 2018. After weeks of calibration and adjustment to the advanced seismometer, adding the Wind and Thermal Shield will both protect the instrument and greatly enhance i
NASA is starting a more aggressive campaign to reawaken the Opportunity Mars rover, which has been silent since June 10, 2018. Over the next few weeks, the space agency will send a series of radio commands aimed at getting the robotic explorer to reactivate or bypass systems that may have been shut down when it lost power...

A daring mission to sample a distant asteroid is starting to get very interesting, with NASA's OSIRIS-REx probe setting off some New Year's fireworks of its own in an eight-second burn to enter orbit around Bennu. This maneuver on the final day of 2018 saw the asteroid become the smallest object ever to be orbited by a spacecraft, with mission scientists now gearing up for a series of clos
Sierra Nevada Corporation is picking up the pace in its mission to carry cargo to and from the International Space Station using a next-generation spaceplane, with NASA giving its Dream Chaser vehicle the all clear following a design and performance review. This means the vehicle will now move into full production, with the developers hopeful of using it to ship goods to the orbiting labor
So far, Earth is the only place in the universe that we know for sure is home to life, but there's evidence that its chemical building blocks may start stacking up in space. Now, NASA astrophysicists have managed to create DNA sugars in a vacuum chamber that simulates interstellar space, and in follow-up studies found other sugar derivatives in meteorite samples...
