Scientists have spotted a distant gas-giant planet that goes through wild temperature swings as it passes its star on a highly eccentric orbit every 111 days.
Two amateur astronomers separately capture a continent-size blast emanating from the massive planet.
While it hasn't reached its destination yet, the Juno spacecraft has surpassed an impressive milestone in space exploration.
A surprising find has researchers thinking that they may have discovered a "Solar System 2.0."
The space telescope is taking a close look at the gas giant and finds that a massive wave on the planet seen decades ago wasn't just a fluke.
As part of a NASA-funded program, a needle-like robotic vehicle is plunging the icy depths at our planet's poles. Jupiter's moon Europa could be next.
Observations from the Hubble Space Telescope have confirmed that there's a salty subsurface ocean on Jupiter's largest moon.
Crave has a new time slot: Thursday! Celebrate by taking a ride on the rugged Storm electric bike. Plus, try not to judge this book by its cover, or it will judge you back. And NASA officially announces plans to visit Jupiter moon Europa.
Scientists suspect that Jupiter's icy moon Europa contains a vast ocean that may help support alien life forms. The only way to find out is to go there. NASA looks ahead to a Europa mission by 2020.
NASA is entering the planning phase for a mission to Europa, believed to have a massive ocean beneath its icy surface.
