Space mining has the potential to provide a greater supply of resources either for being exploited locally for construction or being sent back to earth.
Jupiter's bands are one of its most striking features – and can be seen from Earth – but they only go so deep within the giant planet. Now scientists think they know why.
Researchers have found evidence of a large lake of salty water, buried 1.5 kilometres beneath the southern polar ice cap on Mars. So what does that mean for life on the red planet?
Jupiter now has at least 79 moons, the most for any known planet. But where did these newly discovered moons come from?
Titan is more than a billion kilometres from our Sun but occasionally it's shadow can be seen here on Earth, with the right technology. That's what scientists gathered in Western Australia to observe.
Each meteorite is a piece of the puzzle to understanding our solar system.
Discovery of many icy worlds helps unravel the solar system's history.
A three-dimensional look and listen at a dark cloud in space sheds new light on the mystery of how our solar system formed billions of years ago.
Now's a great time to see Jupiter as it's about to be the closest to Earth for some time. Time too to catch up with the latest on the Juno mission, exploring the largest planet in our Solar System.
Red spots suggest Mercury may have formed far away from the sun.
Scientists looking for signs of alien life from the mystery object passing through our Solar system say they've found nothing "so far".
A new trajectory means the mission to uncover core facts about the asteroid belt will happen sooner than planned.
Having discovered an asteroid from outside the solar system for the first time, scientists are hoping there are more out there – illuminating the path to extrasolar worlds.
A solitary planet in an eccentric orbit around an ancient star may help astronomers understand exactly how such planetary systems are formed.
Astronomers have detected what is believed to be the first interstellar object ever seen passing through our solar system.
The mystery object seen moving through our Solar system shows the void between the stars is far from empty. So can we expect more interstellar visitors?
They erupted for billions of years and make Earth's volcanoes look like molehills. Here's what we know and what we don't know about them.
The last signals from Cassini space probe before it burns up in Saturn's atmosphere will tracked by the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex.
The Cassini space probe discovered liquid lakes, poisonous gases and the basic elements of life on Saturn's moon, Titan.
The Cassini space probe took us up close and through the beautiful rings of Saturn. It captured some amazing images, and even the sound of the rings during its mission.
