Don't-Miss Science Industry Stories
The first test of the prototype plane only lasted seven minutes, but the SolarStratos team hopes that one day, the solar aircraft will carry people to the edge of space.
The robots are made from a number of rods and cables allowing them to easily adapt to moving through challenging terrains and making it much easier for them to be dropped onto the surface of planets than current rovers.
Engineers at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida have installed a zip line to zoom astronauts to safety in case of an emergency during launch.
The U.S. Air Force's top-secret autonomous space plane, the X-37B, is days away from breaking its own longevity record. The aircraft, which looks like a mini Space Shuttle, is on schedule next week to spend its record-setting 675th day in orbit, but we still don't know much about what it's doing up there.
Elon Musk says space travel throughout our solar system will be made possible with SpaceX's Interplanetary Transport System (ITS).
The Navy has given researchers at Florida Atlantic University a $258,008 grant to study the movement of fish in order to enhance the motion of underwater vehicles.
NASA's RoboGlove is coming back to Earth as a commercial product made by GM.
It's been a year since the Air Force launched the secret X-37B. There are many theories about why it's up there, but the government isn't saying much.
NASA will deliberately start a fire in space. Engineers are hoping to learn more about how fire spreads in zero gravity, and with that knowledge make safer space missions.
Boston Dynamics, a advanced robot start-up that was purchased by Google just over two years ago, is up for sale according to Bloomberg.
