NASA's InSight lander has recorded the first evidence of earthquake-like tremors on Mars. The discovery opens a new chapter in our understanding of the geological processes at play on another world.
New research on landslides on Mars could help protect against devastating landslides on Earth.
Astronomers have found 20 new moons around Saturn, and will keep finding more as technology improves.
The 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics went to a cosmologist who helped unlock the secrets of the Big Bang's aftermath, and two astronomers who found a "hot Jupiter" orbiting a nearby star.
NASA has released a sound recording from Mars. So what do these literally otherworldly sounds tell us about the processes at play inside the red planet?
Australia played a vital role in beaming the Apollo 11 Moon landing to the world. But since then we've passed up the opportunity to cement our place in exploring outer space.
Pluto has a density between that of rock and ice – so that immediately suggests the dwarf planet is made of a mix of both. But how do we know?
Images from New Horizons spacecraft provide more evidence about the surface of Pluto.
Surprising new results from the Juno mission may us help work out what's going on at Saturn and other gas giants, too.
Planetary protection protocols try to make sure we don't seed places like Mars with life from our planet. An astrobiologist argues they're misguided – especially with human astronauts on the horizon.
Will humans ever live on Mars? Whoever it is to get there first will benefit from the experiences of those who stayed in simulated Martian missions here on Earth.
Scientists discover rare molecules on Titan which suggests it's creating the building blocks of life.
The volcanoes would be a great place t to search for fossilised microbes.
One of the best ways to find out the challenges of living on Mars is to simulate living on another planet here on Earth. So what's it like to spend several months living the Martian life?
We may need to re-think our models of Jupiter’s formation thanks to the first results from Juno probe orbiting the planet, and new observations from Earth.
Are we headed to a magnetic reversal and all the global disruption that would bring? Enter archaeomagnetism. A look at the archaeological record in southern Africa provides some clues.
Recent high-profile disappointments make it tempting to this our efforts to explore Mars are cursed. But landing anywhere in space is hard – not least on the Red Planet.
The red hue of the moon during a total lunar eclipse gives astronomers at cue on how to find out more about the planets being discovered around other stars.
More than three thousand planets have been found orbiting other stars in our galaxy. The challenge now is to find out more about these planets.
The discovery of carbon in the form of graphite on the surface of Mercury helps explain the mystery of why the tiny planet is so unusually dark.
