For a few decades now, the leading edge of science and especially astronomy has been at least partially dedicated to the search for one of the most fundamental philosophical questions we have — are we alone in the universe?
In a research breakthrough funded by NASA, scientists have synthesized a molecular system that, like DNA, can store and transmit information. This unprecedented feat suggests there could be an alternative to DNA-based life, as we know it on Earth – a genetic system for life that may be possible on other worlds.
We may not have to wait much longer to get our first glimpse of E.T., NASA chief Jim Bridenstine said.
Searching for signs of alien life should be part of every future NASA mission, researchers wrote in a new report.
Aliens have always captured our imaginations. The universe is large and filled with other planets but somehow it seems like humans are alone. So we decided to break down three theories on why we haven’t found any aliens yet. Following is a transcript of the video.
A new calculation compares the effort so far to exploring a hot tub’s–worth of Earth’s oceans
If aliens love satellites as much as we do, we might be able to spot them
A GROUP of scientists claim to have identified a mysterious object spotted flying through space and thought to have been an alien spaceship.
When NASA’s Europa Clipper spacecraft sails by Jupiter’s icy moon in the early 2020s, it will be carrying a handful of glass tubes breathed into existence by Mike Souza.
NASA will undertake a 21-day mission to Hawaii’s undersea Lo’ihi volcano to learn more about life in extreme places.
