We are closer than ever before to sending American astronauts to Mars. But getting to the Red Planet is hard. That's why we make it a priority to reach out to partners across America and around the world. Our Deputy Administrator Dava Newman on the importance of partnerships on the #JourneyToMars: http://go.nasa.gov/1rA2ZSf

A supermassive black hole of 17 billion solar masses has been found in an isolated region of space. How did such a large object form in a relatively sparse area?

It’s time to whip out your 3-D glasses to enjoy and scrutinize the remarkable detail of spectacular terrain revealed in a new high resolution stereo image of Pluto - King of the Kuiper Belt! - taken by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft.

Hubble Discovers Moon Orbiting the Dwarf Planet Makemake

Peering to the outskirts of our solar system, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has spotted a small, dark moon orbiting Makemake, the second brightest icy dwarf planet — after Pluto — in the Kuiper Belt.

The moon — provisionally designated S/2015 (136472) 1 and nicknamed MK 2 — is more than 1,300 times fainter than Makemake. MK 2 was seen approximately 13,000 miles from the dwarf planet, and its diameter is estimated to be 100 miles across. Makemake is 870 miles wide. The dwarf planet, discovered in 2005, is named for a creation deity of the Rapa Nui people of Easter Island.

The observations were made in April 2015 with Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3. Hubble’s unique ability to see faint objects near bright ones, together with its sharp resolution, allowed astronomers to pluck out the moon from Makemake’s glare. The discovery was announced today in a Minor Planet Electronic Circular.
