The charred pieces of debris are believed to be from the SpaceX mission that launched in 2020.
Russia's space agency boss, Yuri Borisov, has said his country will pull out of the ISS after 2024. But NASA said it's yet to receive an official statement.
Russia plans to construct its own orbiting station after over 20 years of cooperation with the U.S. in space.
The Cerro Prieto reservoir in drought-savaged northern Mexico has nearly entirely dried up to only half a percent of its full capacity.
Due to its large size, the first stage of China's Long March 5B rocket won't burn up in the atmosphere.
These space rocks are among more than 29,000 near-Earth objects, or NEOs, that scientists have detected to date.
Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the U.S., has hit its lowest water levels ever this month, as seen in NASA pictures.
It's unclear what the string-like object is, though it could be left-over debris from Perseverance's landing maneuver over a year ago.
The year 2022 has seen Congress hold a UFO hearing, a Russian official confirm UFO studies and China involved in a radio sweep for alien signals.
Space debris is a growing problem as humanity launches more and more satellites into Earth orbit, making space increasingly crowded.
The U.S. began supplying Ukraine in June with the HIMARS rocket system, which has a range of 50 miles.
"I wanted to share the emotions these gorgeous images brought out in me" astrophysicist Skylar Grayson, who was brought to tears, told Newsweek.
While Webb's images of distant galaxies and nebulae have grabbed the world's attention, the telescope's photo of our nearest gas giant shouldn't be missed.
This particular phenomenon, though not particularly rare, was the biggest and brightest of the year.
By studying light from distant worlds, Webb will play a key part in the ongoing search for life on other worlds.
The Doodle and cute animation were thrown together by Google after NASA released the first troves of data from its new telescope.
The free web tool allows users to see just how detailed the new James Webb Space Telescope image really is.
An astronomer says we can expect much more from NASA's state-of-the-art telescope that has already raised the bar for infrared astronomy.
"We are going to be able to answer questions that we don't even know what the questions are yet," said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson.
At the time of its close approach, the space rock, called 2019 NW5, will be traveling at a staggering speed of nearly 36,000 miles per hour relative to Earth.
A Chinese drag sail launched into space has succeeded in accelerating the deorbit of a rocket, the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology announced.
The loud noise will be as a result of the eventual bursting of a pressurized lunar habitat module.
America's "space agency" picking up the UFO ball was bound to raise eyebrows and concerns for NASA's reputation. But if it's handled well, the commission could do more than shed much-needed light on UAPs. It could also give Americans a masterclass in the most basic, most important, and unfortunately, most boring topic in science: Standards of Evidence. They are the key to knowing if we are alone in the Universe or not.
