A frozen fragment left over from the formation of the solar system is set to become the most distant object ever explored by a human-built space probe, scientists working on the New Horizons mission said Friday. The selection is pending final approval by NASA managers, which must consider a ...
NASA has asked scientists to assess how to design and fly robotic space probes to Uranus and Neptune, the last of the solar system's classical planets yet to be orbited, likely ensuring the huge icy worlds are near the top of the space agency's to-do list in the coming decades.
Scientists are getting a final look at Saturn's icy moon Dione for decades to come with fresh imagery streaming down this week from NASA's Cassini spacecraft, which made its last close flyby of the Texas-sized satellite Monday. The raw images from Cassini's camera show Dione projected against a ...
