The Cassini spacecraft will plunge into Saturn's atmosphere on 15 September 2017, ending its nearly 20-year mission as planned. More...

NASA has chosen an instrument to be flown on the Korea Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter (KPLO). The instrument, ShadowCam, will map the reflectance within permanently shadowed regions on the Moon to search for frost and ice deposits. KPLO, the first South Korean lunar mission, is scheduled to launch in December 2018. For more information, see the NASA press release.

NASA has announced new details on the discovery of a planetary system by researchers at the University of Liege in Belgium. The system, called TRAPPIST-1, contains 7 roughly Earth-size planets orbiting close to an ultra-cool dwarf star. Three of the planets appear to be in the habitable zone, potentially having liquid water and conditions amenable to life. For more information, see the NASA press release.
