NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) has used its onboard Faint Object infrared Camera for the SOFIA Telescope (FORCAST) to discover water molecules on the sunlit surface of the Moon. For the first time, there are indications that water may be distributed across the Moon's surface, and not limited to just cold, dark areas of the lunar surface.SOFIA's infrared camera, us
NASA has released pictures taken by the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft that show the moment it touched down on the Bennu asteroid 200 million miles from Earth. The craft left Cape Canaveral a little over four years ago with the aim of intersecting the asteroid, and landed on the surface within three feet of the intended target on 20th October.As the craft approached the asteroid its SamCam camera captured
Four-wheeled robotic rovers may be a good choice for the exploration of other planets, but they could conceivably get stuck at the bottom of deep craters. NASA's DuAxel rover is designed with that in mind, as it splits in two for steep descents.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: NASA, Caltech, California Institute of Technology, Rover, New Atlas Audio

NASA has used sonification, the process of turning data into audio in order to perceive it in a new way, to reveal the 'sounds' of our universe. A video containing the generated audio was recently published by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama. The data, in this case, comes from NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory and other telescopes that imaged the Milky Way in optical and infrared li
