How do you want to explore our Universe
Your place to learn about Space!
The Planetary Science Institute is bringing back the CosmoAcademy program! Sign-up today to get a small class experience that makes sitting online feel more like sitting around a shared table. Programs start March 20.

Join the Community
We have a diverse community of folks here to talk science, write code, and just share memes and play games. Join the conversation on Discord and find a Geeky community welcoming to all. Want to do more? Join our opensource community on Github and be part of creating tomorrow’s citizen science.
CosmoQuest invites you to help NASA scientists make maps of scientifically interesting features in our Solar System. You can map craters on the Moon, and trace the splatter of asteroid impacts on Vesta. All these worlds are yours to explore!
Currently we’re rebuilding all our citizen science projects with a new interface. We’ll get you sciencing again as soon as we can.
If it takes a village to raise a child, it will take a global-community to understand the universe.
We are part of that community. You are part of it with us.
As observations eliminate more and more predicted possible particles from the supersymmetry model, it may be time to look at asymmetry for an answer.
Analysis of 2018 meteorite that landed in Botswana as well as pre-impact images provide evidence that the fragments are from the asteroid Vesta.
The Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment (MOXIE) onboard the Perseverance rover has successfully extracted oxygen from atmospheric carbon dioxide.
An analysis of tiny inclusions in the Sutter’s Mill meteorite has found carbon dioxide-rich water, which means the asteroid formed out past the ice line.
Giant exoplanet found at a distance 20 times farther out than Jupiter from the Sun and six times more massive puzzles scientists with its location and size.
The red dwarf Proxima Centauri has been spotted giving off a massive stellar flare which was captured in ultraviolet and radio wavelengths.
As a reminder that the great Hubble Space Telescope still does great science, NASA and ESA released a stunning image of the massive star AG Carinae.
Your random space fact for this week is about geocaching and the hidden tag that is located on the ISS, placed by space tourist Richard Garriott.
This Week in Rocket History, we’re going back 31 years to April 24, 1990, and one of the most important missions of the Space Shuttle program: the Hubble Space Telescope.
