What's the latest with the NASA TESS mission to study Earth-sized exoplanets? Watch this months Future in Space Hangout to find out!
NASA’s Mission to Europa has finished the first phase of its design and science review; NASA and the international partners are quietly completing design of possible Moon-orbiting space station; and a look at what JWST will teach us about the exopla
Sometimes individual stars in our galaxy are seen to be zipping through space. The winds from the stars ram into the interstellar medium -- the material between the stars in our galaxy -- and a bow shock is formed.
