Doug Duncan, director of Boulder's Fiske Planetarium, explains the excitement over NASA's discovery of seven rocky planets orbiting a single, relatively nearby star to Earth.
In order to understand how space travel affects the human body and the aging process, scientists are comparing Scott Kelly, who spent a year in space, to his identical twin Mark Kelly, who stayed on Earth.
Lockheed-Martin's GOES-R satellite, built in Colorado, will replace an aging one, and will be able to pinpoint severe weather more accurately.
The “Lucy” mission will cross billions of miles to visit multiple asteroids known as Trojans. Colorado scientists will build the spacecraft and direct the mission.
In the future, you may live in a Martian lava house and go boating on Titan’s methane lakes, according to two new books by Colorado authors.
- NASA used aircraft-mounted sensors to track methane pollution from more than 250 sources-- mostly gas wells, storage tanks, processing facilities and pipelines.Read more
- The spacecraft is expected to reach the asteroid in 2018, and return to Earth five years later.Read more
As NASA envisions a permanent settlement on Mars, the “Ice House” wins a design award for 3-D printed Martian shelters.
