NASA's Orion spacecraft continued zooming away from Earth and the moon Monday, surpassing Apollo 13's distance record from Earth by about 20,000 miles.
After a weather-related postponement, a SpaceX cargo ship blasted into space this past weekend with an extra special something on board.
John McFall, a 41-year-old British former Paralympian who lost his right leg in a motorcycle accident when he was 19, called his selection “a real turning point and mark in history.”
With its deep-space data relay network performing better than expected, NASA has set up a live video stream from the Orion capsule as it heads toward lunar orbit.
The top half of the "hourglass" reveals clouds of gas and dust in shades of orange and bronze, while clouds on the bottom half are awash in blues and lavenders.
Nearly 50 years after the last men walked on the moon, NASA is one step closer to sending the first woman. The Artemis I mission blasted off early Wednesday on an ambitious test flight of the agency’s new moon rocket and capsule.
Live updates from NASA and the launch team on the launch of Artemis 1 from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Apollo electronics engineer Ken Poimboeuf helped build the massive Saturn V rocket that took us to the moon more than 50 year ago. He said there were hiccups then, but NASA is known for getting the job done.
Scientists at the University of Central Florida are working to create a composite material that they hope will prevent scrubs like the one that happened Sept. 3 on the Artemis launchpad because of a hydrogen leak.
NASA says a risky repair job appears to have fixed the hydrogen fuel leak that threatened to delay a third attempt to send the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft on a test flight known as Artemis I, and liftoff could be minutes away.
The Artemis I mission’s rocket engines and boosters have direct ties to Columbia, Challenger and each of the other shuttles, and even one of the original Mercury 7 astronauts.
Call it one small step for tiny astronauts. There may not be a human crew aboard NASA’s Artemis I mission, but there will be four small LEGO astronauts keeping an eye on the Orion capsule’s flight to the moon.
The iconic red NASA "worm" logo, the bright orange fuel tank, and the sheer size of the new SLS rocket may be the first things most people notice. But a closer look reveals a striking pattern of black and white markings.
NASA’s Artemis program has deep figurative roots that go back to the Apollo moon missions of the 1960s and 1970s. And soon, it will have literal roots as well.
NASA started the countdown Monday for this week’s planned liftoff of its new moon rocket, although hurricane damage could cause yet another delay for the test flight.
The NASA manager in charge of the remains of both lost space shuttles said it's one of the biggest pieces of Challenger ever found in the decades since the accident.
NASA managers decided earlier this week to leave the 322-foot-tall moon rocket and Orion spacecraft on Launch Pad 39B, where it has been since the rollout on Nov. 4.
Florida is preparing for impacts from Subtropical Storm Nicole. The system will soak the Space Coast and bring hurricane-strength winds near where NASA's Artemis 1 rocket is awaiting liftoff.
Totality will last nearly 1 1/2 hours — from 5:16 a.m. to 6:41 a.m. EST — as Earth passes directly between the moon and sun.
Two of the three asteroids that were discovered earned the title of “planet killers” because of their sheer size. If either of them impacted a planet, such as Earth, it would cause a mass extinction event.
