Earth's air supply may reach nearly 400,000 miles into space — so far that the moon constantly flies through it

Space begins at roughly 62 miles (100 kilometers) above the surface of Earth, but our planet's air supply stretches farther than this. Scientists have discovered that Earth's atmosphere may actually extend nearly 400,000 miles into deep space — far more than previously understood. "The moon flies through Earth's atmosphere," one of the researchers said. The boundaries between planet Earth, the moon, and deep space just got fuzzier. According to a new analysis of data recorded by a spacecraft ...

SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket booster survived a 'spicy' landing at sea after launching the first private moon mission

SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket booster endured "a rather spicy landing" on Thursday night as it returned from a successful launch, a SpaceX engineer said on a livestream. During the tense livestreamed landing, another SpaceX engineer said the rocket landed on a drone ship, a robotic landing platform in the Atlantic Ocean, "despite the challenging conditions." The SpaceX control room erupted in cheers as the 23-story rocket landed on the drone ship. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted: "Highest reentry heat...

Bird poop and dust could seriously complicate Elon Musk and SpaceX's latest plan to reach Mars

SpaceX, the aerospace company founded by Elon Musk, is developing a rocket ship to ferry people to the moon and Mars. Musk said Starship will have a heat shield that "bleeds" fuel during landing to protect itself from superheated plasma. However, aerospace experts say pores that ooze coolant might clog easily, compromising such a heat shield. Over the past few months, Elon Musk has been revealing new details about SpaceX's upcoming launch system, called Starship. Musk has said the new launch ...

Trump just got a step closer to creating a US Space Force. Mark Kelly, a retired NASA astronaut and Senate hopeful, said it's 'a dumb idea.'

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump signed Space Policy Directive-4, which aims to create a sixth US military branch called the Space Force. Mark Kelly, a retired NASA astronaut who recently announced his bid for US Senate, has said a Space Force "is a dumb idea." That's because the US Air Force already has a Space Command and a space force. Opponents of the Space Force also say it would add billions to government spending without meaningful change in military operations. President Donald Trum...

Descending at an angle could be key to landing heavier craft on Mars

Landing on Mars is a challenge: The heavier the craft, the more difficult a safe landing becomes. Scientists propose using retropropulsion engines and angling the craft to create a pressure differential to land heavier crafts in the future.

Elon Musk says SpaceX is developing a 'bleeding' heavy-metal rocket ship. Making it work may be 100 times as hard as NASA's most difficult Mars mission, one expert says.

SpaceX is developing a giant, fully reusable launch system called Starship to ferry people to and from Mars. Elon Musk, the aerospace company's founder, said he recently made "radical" changes to the spacecraft's design. One change gives Starship a stainless-steel body. The other is a heat shield that will "bleed" liquid during landing to cool off the spaceship and prevent it from burning up. But aerospace experts anticipate huge challenges for Starship, including clogs in heat-shield pores ...

Underground volcanoes could explain possible liquid water on Mars

Last year scientists discovered there could be liquid water on Mars. Now a research team argues that for there to be liquid water, there must be an underground source of heat -- and they believe underground volcanoes could be responsible.

A $1.37 billion border-security deal might save SpaceX's launch site in Texas, where Elon Musk hopes to fire off moon and Mars rockets

SpaceX, the rocket company founded by Elon Musk, is building spaceship prototypes at a launch site in southern Texas. The site is less than 3 miles from the US-Mexico border and embroiled in President Donald Trump's push for a border wall. Government maps reportedly show a proposed physical barrier running directly through SpaceX's site. President Trump on Thursday said he will sign a nearly $1.4 billion border-security deal that excludes SpaceX's site from fencing. However, Trump on Friday de...

10 Golden Age science fiction novels

The early 20th century saw explosive growth for the science fiction genre. A wide range of these books would go on to become classics. These great works explore the strange, zany and absurd profundities of our existence. The first Golden Age of Science Fiction was officially considered to be from 1938 to 1946. As a whole and how most readers view it — the era extended into the early- to mid-1960s. From Jules Verne to earlier proto-science fiction works, the genre has gained more prominence an...

NASA's Mars Opportunity rover is dead after nearly 15 years on the red planet. Take a look back at its unlikely journey.

NASA's Opportunity rover is officially dead and the mission is over, the agency said Wednesday. The rover stopped communicating in June 2018 during a brutal Martian dust storm, but NASA didn't give up hope that the machine might re-connect after the dust settled and the rover gathered solar power. But finally, after one last failed attempt to call Opportunity on Tuesday, NASA has declared the mission officially over. Still, Opportunity's near 15-year stint on Mars was impressive for a robot de...
