NASA Announces New Partnerships for Commercial Lunar Payload Delivery Services

Nine U.S. companies now are eligible to bid on NASA delivery services to the lunar surface through Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) contracts, as one of the first steps toward long-term scientific study and human exploration of the Moon and eventually Mars.

Artificial magnetic field produces exotic behavior in graphene sheets

Theoretical physics discovery paves the way for future technological applications.

An important step towards completely secure quantum communication networks

The quest for a secure information network is on. Researchers have recently succeeded in boosting the storage time of quantum information, using a small glass container filled with room temperature atoms, taking an important step towards a secure quantum encoded distribution network.

NASA TV to Air Next International Space Station Crew Launch, Docking

Three space travelers, including two astronauts on their first flight, are scheduled to launch to the International Space Station on Monday, Dec. 3 for a six-and-a-half month mission.

Big results from small solutions: New method for analyzing metalloproteins

A new method only needs a tiny liquid sample to analyze metalloproteins.

High-speed camera shows incoming particles cause damage by briefly melting surfaces as they strike

When tiny particles strike a metal surface at high speed—for example, as coatings being sprayed or as micrometeorites pummeling a space station—the moment of impact happens so fast that the details of process haven't been clearly understood, until now.

NASA Provides Live Coverage of Spacecraft Arrival at Asteroid That May Have Answers to the Origin of our Solar System
