The photos capture Mars passing below two objects known as the Lagoon and Trifid nebulas, both in the constellation Sagittarius.
An extraordinary amount of ultraviolet light appears to be missing from the universe, scientists have found.
Scientists studying more than 140,000 extremely bright galaxies have calculated the expansion of the universe with unprecedented accuracy.
Astronomers have added an ultraviolet perspective to an ultra-deep field view of the universe taken by the Hubble Space Telescope over the past decade. Continue reading →
What happens when two neutron stars collide? Using a sophisticated computer simulation, NASA scientists have visualized this violent scenario in awesome degenerate-matter-crushing detail. Continue reading →
