This is fantastic!  Summer is short. Keep an eye out for the Northern Lights, and whenever you get a chance to see them (especially on trips up north), get outside for the experience!

The famous bright spots at the bottom of Ceres' Occator crater appear to be sublimating material into space, creating a localized atmosphere within the walls of the 57-mile-wide (92 kilometers) hole in the ground, new observations by NASA's Dawn spacecraft.

Measurements by Curiosity's rock-zapping ChemCam laser and another instrument revealed that a chunk of bedrock dubbed Elk contains high levels of silica and thus is a good candidate to preserve ancient organic molecules, if any exist in the area.

For the next six months, NASA's Saturn-orbiting Cassini spacecraft will get its final look at two icy moons -- one famous and one not so well-known -- before preparing for mission's end in 2017.

I'm fed up with this. You're kidding or simply nuts. Over.

The fiery demise of ancient huts in southern Africa 1,000 years ago left clues to understanding a bizarre weak spot in the Earth's magnetic field — and the role it plays in the magnetic poles' periodic reversals.

As opposed to the alternative?

Waste away your time waiting to die because you don't have God's (and therefore the rest of the world's) permission to live your own life.

Hmmm... That's a tough one.

A wisp of a galaxy is rich with new, blue-white young stars and primordial gas in this new cosmic photo from the Hubble Space Telescope. The irregular dwarf galaxy is creating stars the size of our sun at a prodigious rate of about once a year.

A new image captured by NASA's Cassini spacecraft highlights an impact basin on the Saturn moon Tethys. Called Odysseus, the 280-mile-wide (450 kilometers) impact basin is nearly half as wide as the satellite itself.

The asteroid or moon that impacted is 10% of the size of the created or 28 miles wide as the created is 280 miles. 

It is not unusual for moons to occasionally impact planets especially gas giants. also rings are from collisions and eruptions. 

Rings are around the. Larger planets as gravity tear them apart.

Russia has formally notified its International Space Station partners that it will continue in the partnership at least to 2024, ending several months of doubts that were fueled by the current poor state of Russia’s relations with the West.
