Astronomers have long struggled with how young planets form around pairs of stars without destroying themselves, but new research suggests it can be done with the perfect setup: a massive, slightly elongated disk of debris from the star.

Scientists found that the median particle size in a set of 20 different Apollo soil samples held in laboratories for research use has decreased by more than half since the samples were first measured 40 years ago.

satellites or objects? by my rough count (because i don't have access to all launch data or object breakup reports) there's over 16472 objects out of over 40884 launches... some of those are in orbit around other bodies but a very large number are parts and pieces of debris from collisions and catastrophic failure events...

The proposed Comet Hitchhiker spacecraft would sling itself from one comet or asteroid to another using a harpoon and a superlong tether. This strategy could allow relatively fast and low-cost exploration of distant targets, its developers say.

A so-called "floating spoon" on Mars spotted by NASA's Curiosity rover is cooking up a storm on the Internet, but it's actually a cool rock formation sculpted over time by the Martian winds, officials with the space agency say.

It's always important to recycle. 
A new view of the Prawn Nebula shows "cosmic recycling" at work: Glowing clusters of newborn stars illuminate surrounding gas, expelled from an earlier stellar generation, which will eventually form into even newer stars.
