Webb Maps Surprisingly Large Plume Jetting From Saturn’s Moon Enceladus

A water vapor plume from Saturn’s moon Enceladus spanning more than 6,000 miles – nearly the distance from Los Angeles, California to Buenos Aires, Argentina – has been detected by researchers using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope.

Astronomers Discover Planets in NASA Kepler's Final Days of Observations

A team of astrophysicists and citizen scientists have identified what may be some of the last planets NASA’s retired Kepler space telescope observed during its nearly decade-long mission.

Hubble Captures a Drifting Galaxy

The jellyfish galaxy JW39 hangs serenely in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

NASA's Chandra, Webb Combine for Arresting Views

Four composite images deliver dazzling views from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and James Webb Space Telescope of two galaxies, a nebula, and a star cluster. Each image combines Chandra's X-rays — a form of high-energy light — with infrared data from previously released Webb images, both of which are invisible to the unaided eye.

NASA's Hubble Hunts for Intermediate-Sized Black Hole Close to Home

Astronomers using Hubble have come up with what they say is some of their best evidence yet for the presence of a rare class of "intermediate-sized" black hole that may be lurking in the heart of the closest globular star cluster to Earth.

Hubble Peers into a Glistening Star Cluster

The densely packed globular cluster NGC 6325 glistens in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

NASA’s Spitzer, TESS Find Potentially Volcano-Covered Earth-Size World

Astronomers have discovered an Earth-size exoplanet, or world beyond our solar system, that may be carpeted with volcanoes.

NASA Completes Heart of Roman Space Telescope’s Primary Instrument

The heart of NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope was recently delivered to Ball Aerospace for integration into the WFI (Wide Field Instrument). Called the FPS (Focal Plane System), it serves as the core of Roman’s camera.

NASA’s Webb Finds Water, and a New Mystery, in Rare Main Belt Comet

Using Webb’s NIRSpec (Near-Infrared Spectrograph) instrument, astronomers have confirmed gas – specifically water vapor – around a comet in the main asteroid belt for the first time, indicating that water ice from the primordial solar system can be preserved in that region.

NASA Goddard, National Philharmonic Explore Cosmos Through Imagery, Music Collaboration

Awe-inspiring NASA visuals combined with the might of a live symphonic orchestra last week in “Cosmic Cycles,” a multimedia collaboration among the agency’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, the National Philharmonic, and composer Henry Dehlinger.

Hubble Captures a Light-Bending Galaxy Cluster

A vast galaxy cluster lurks in the center of this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

NASA’s Webb Takes Closest Look Yet at Mysterious Planet

A science team gains new insight into the atmosphere of a “mini-Neptune,” a class of planet common in the galaxy but about which little is known.

Webb Looks for Fomalhaut’s Asteroid Belt and Finds Much More

Astronomers used NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to image the warm dust around a nearby young star, Fomalhaut, in order to study the first asteroid belt ever seen outside of our solar system in infrared light.

Hubble Views Striking Starry Tendrils

The jellyfish galaxy JO175 appears to hang suspended in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble Views a Beautiful Luminous Galaxy

The lenticular galaxy NGC 5283 is the subject of this NASA Hubble Space Telescope image.

Hubble Spots an Energetic Galaxy

This NASA Hubble Space Telescope image reveals NGC 547, an elliptical galaxy that sits about 250 million light-years away from Earth in the constellation Cetus.

Hubble Follows Shadow Play Around Planet-Forming Disk

The young star TW Hydrae is playing "shadow puppets" with scientists observing it with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble Captures Extraordinarily Bright Interacting Galaxies

This new image from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope shows interacting galaxies known as AM 1214-255.

Hubble Gazes at the Home of an Enormous Black Hole

This NASA Hubble Space Telescope image of the spiral galaxy NGC 4395 looks at a small section of the larger galaxy.

Hubble Observes an In-between Galaxy

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of the lenticular galaxy NGC 3489.

Webb Finds Water Vapor, But From a Rocky Planet or Its Star?

Astronomers used NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to study a rocky exoplanet known as GJ 486 b, and their observations using Webb’s Near-Infrared Spectrograph (NIRSpec) show hints of water vapor.

NASA Animation Sizes Up the Universe’s Biggest Black Holes

A new NASA animation highlights the “super” in supermassive black holes. These monsters lurk in the centers of most big galaxies, including our own Milky Way.

Hubble Captures an Elusive Galaxy Cluster

A menagerie of interesting astronomical finds are visible in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Framework for NASA’s Roman Spacecraft Moves to Goddard Clean Room

The primary structure that serves as the “bones” of NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope just moved into the clean room at the Goddard Space Flight Center. The rest of the spacecraft will be built up on this skeletal structure.

Webb Reveals Early-Universe Prequel to Huge Galaxy Cluster

NASAs James Webb Space Telescope has confirmed, for the first time, a protocluster of seven galaxies at a distance that astronomers refer to as redshift 7.9, or a mere 650 million years after the big bang.
