Odysseus landed on its side instead of landing at a vertical angle, which disrupted communication with Earth. Some of the antennas were blocked by the inverted spacecraft, and those that remained exposed were too close to the ground, leading to patchy communications.
The Webb telescope has observed what appear to be young methane deposits on the surface of Eris and Maki Maki
For the first time, NASA activated a tool designed to discover planets many light years away on an object in the solar system, in a study of the winds of Jupiter
In the new study, evidence for additional sources of chemical energy, much stronger and more diverse than methane production, was discovered: a group of organic compounds was found that were oxidized, and this points to many chemical pathways for the existence of potential life in the subsurface ocean of Enceladus, because oxidation helps to release chemical energy.
The new research from Calcutta suggests that remnants of that ancient planet known as Theia are still inside the Earth and explain the origin of the "lumps" near the core-mantle boundary. Other remnants of it coalesced to form the moon
The James Webb Space Telescope discovered a previously unseen jet stream in Jupiter's atmosphere. Similar phenomena have been observed in Saturn, and both may be related to temperature variations in the atmospheres of the gas giants
In addition to bringing the first sample collected from Mars to Earth, this very complex mission will include the first launch from the soil of another planet, and also the first rendezvous in orbit around another planet. The return of the samples from Mars is a partnership with ESA (European Space Agency)
New research reveals mysterious dark and bright spots in Neptune's atmosphere using first ground-based observations with the VLT telescope
The vehicle discovered a wide variety of heavy elements, but this is the first evidence of the presence of sulfur * The rover will tour the south pole of the moon for two weeks and look for signs of water ice
The Psyche spacecraft is launched to the metallic asteroid of the same name to understand what a planet's core looks like
The Vera Rubin Observatory's Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) will revolutionize solar system science by discovering a population of previously undiscovered interstellar comets and asteroids passing through our cosmic neighborhood
A team led by the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) has created a model of the early impacts on Venus to explain how Earth's sister planet maintained a young surface despite not having plate tectonics.
The Bio-SPHERE project investigates potential living and working conditions on the Moon and Mars
Io is a raging volcanic world. NASA researchers are specifically looking at a "hot spot" observed by several spacecraft orbiting Jupiter that has grown from snapshot to snapshot
Researchers have discovered that the Juno spacecraft often encounters giant swirling waves at the boundary between the solar wind and Jupiter's magnetosphere
This is the first time that such an emission of water has been seen from such a great distance, and in addition, the web allows researchers a direct view, for the first time, of how this emission feeds the water supply of the entire system of Saturn and its rings
The launch at Coro in French Guiana was postponed from yesterday due to weather conditions * The spacecraft is carrying ten instruments, some of which are also made in Israel * Will arrive in the Zedek system in July 2031
The Juice spacecraft (JUPiter ICy moons Explorer), is a joint project of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Italian Space Agency (ASI), planned to explore three of Jupiter's icy moons: Ganymede, Europa and Callisto. The mission is scheduled to reach Jupiter in 2031
The purpose of the operation - to find out if the oceans hidden beneath the surface of Jupiter's icy moons have the potential to support extraterrestrial life
The Webb Space Telescope photographed in detail 11 of the rings surrounding Uranus-Uron
The European Space Agency ESA will launch on 13/4 the JUICE spacecraft on the historic mission to Jupiter, with technologies and scientific research funded by the Israel Space Agency at the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology
Engineers from the University of Arizona have developed a system that allows autonomous vehicles to scan underground habitats for astronauts
'Umoamua may be composed of hydrogen ice, which explains its unusual properties. Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe, but it is rarely found in the solid state
The article "Surface changes observed on a volcano in Venus during the Magellan mission" describes the analysis of the observations in which surface changes were discovered on the Sif Mons volcano during the Magellan spacecraft mission in 1991-1994
In a scientific article published this week in the journal NATURE there is a detailed report on the successful demonstration of the kinetic impactor technology by DART: a reconstruction of the impact itself, a report on the timeline until the impact, detailing the location and nature of the impact site, and the documentation of the size and shape of Dimorphus
