(Watch) Amazing Video Shows Size of Largest Galaxy in the Known Universe

The largest galaxy in the known universe is simply staggering in size. But in order to understand its breadth, you need to understand a little something about our own corner of the universe. For starters, the Milky Way galaxy (our little home) is about 100,000 light-years across. Astronomers estimate that we have somewhere around 200 billion stars. Our closest neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy, is

Scientists: We’re ‘very close’ to finding another Earth

Where life might live beyond Earth A team of astronomers announced April 17, 2014, that they have discovered the first Earth-size planet orbiting a star in the so-called "habitable zone" -- the distance from a star where liquid water might pool on the surface. That doesn't mean this planet has life on it, says Thomas Barclay, a scientist at the Bay Area Environmental Research Institute at Ames

First “Super Moon” Of The Year Will Be Visible July 12

doesn’t have a perfectly circular orbit around the Sun, our moon follows an elliptical orbit as well. The point in the orbit when the moon is closest to Earth is called perigee. When the moon is full in this location, it is referred to as a perigee moon. Because of its proximity, it appears slightly larger and brighter and has earned the nickname of “super moon.” There are five of these th

NASA wants to send a quadcopter drone to Titan

NASA wants to search Saturn's moon Titan for life but they're having trouble coming up with a good way to cover a large territory and obtain samples. Now they think they may have a good solution: A 22-pound quadcopter that will work from a mothership. After reading about it, it's a really cool idea. Larry Matthies—a Senior Research Scientist and the supervisor of the Computer Vision Group

5 Most Mysterious Photos From Mars

In the video below is a collection of what videographer Dark5 considers the most mysterious photos captured on Mars, from what appears to be artificial lights shining up from underground to the Mars monolith with a compilation of images that should be impossible of seemingly humanoid figures to animals and even signs of an ancient civilization with technology far more advanced that we are today

Meet NASA’s Newest Design for a Warp Drive Ship

As some of you may have heard, scientists at NASA’s Johnson Space Center are working on warp technology (did your little Trekkie heart just skip a beat?). Alcubierre warp drive via Anderson Institute In 1994, physicist Miguel Alcubierre proposed a new kind of technology that would allow us to travel 10 times faster than the speed of light without actually breaking the speed of light. Sound

This Amazing Shot Of 10,000 Galaxies May Be The Hubble Telescope’s Most Revealing Photo Ever

NASA calls it the most colorful image ever captured by the Hubble Space Telescope--and the most comprehensive. It has to be one of the most spectacular. But the image--the remarkable payoff of a new survey called the Ultraviolet Coverage of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field--is more than merely beautiful. It may also help fill in some gaps in our understanding of how stars form. The new Hubble ima

Lunar Rocks Are First Direct Evidence of Collision That Formed Moon

Lunar samples from Apollo landings confirm a long-held theory This illustration shows the collision between Earth and a smaller planet that formed the moon. Newly analyzed lunar rocks have revealed the first direct evidence of the ancient smashup that created the moon, bolstering a long-held theory. The rocks were gathered by astronauts on NASA's Apollo missions. But newer scanning electr
