There’s been dozens of probes that have gone out exploring the solar system since 1959's Luna 2 probe. PopChartLab has gone and noted down each one since in this beautiful poster of the Solar System.
There could be a new ninth planet floating beyond the dark edges of our solar system, according to new research published in The Astronomical Journal from CalTech professors Mike Brown and Konstantin Batygin.
On the 23rd and 24th of January, 1930, a young astronomer working in Flagstaff, Arizona, scanned a small patch of the night sky. He was taking pictures of star positions, looking for anomalies that would signal movement somewhere at the edge of the solar system. He took the pictures then set them aside, not realizing…
From tiny balls of rock to giant egg-shaped objects, there's a rich and varied array of alien worlds that sit outside the orbit of Neptune. You're looking at the ones that the European Space Agency's satellite Herschel has spotted.
One of the hottest areas of oceanic research centers around deep sea hydrothermal vents and the unique animal species that call it home. But at depths of more than a mile, donning a snorkeling mask and flippers just won't cut it. That's why Ocean Networks Canada has deployed a state-of-the-art camera to document life…
Astronomers have spotted a new moon orbiting Neptune—the first to be discovered in over a decade—by studying images that were archived all the way back in 2009.
It's hard to listen to music while you're swimming because even waterproof earbuds that actually stay on try to conduct sound through air to reach your eardrums, and there's not a lot of air underwater. The FINIS Neptune works on this issue by sending sound waves straight into your face. Total bombardment. In a good…
The worst part about exploring the sea floor is that there's water everywhere. It's dark, cold and not terribly compatible with breathing. But with Neptune Canada sprawled along 500 miles of the sea floor like an ancient serpent, nothing down there will escape our study.
About 165 years ago, astronomers figured out that Neptune is a planet. Since then, Pluto has lived and died as a planet, but Neptune is just now finishing its first solar cycle: It'll turn 1 in Neptune years on July 12.
More used to seeing rocks covered in grime after billions of years of floating around space, a team of astronomers at MIT are scratching their heads over a surprisingly pristine rock in Kuiper Belt, near Neptune.
Manned spaceflight is an expensive and impractical proposition. But what if we had all the funds we wanted at our disposal? What could we do? Quite a bit, it turns out.
There's a fine line between being too lazy to do something and being physically unable to do something, which leads logically to the fact that there are more things in common between the very rich and the very old than you may think. Case in point, this "Neptune Portable Reclining Lift" which lux blog Born Rich deemed…
I like taking baths. There, it's out there and all of the Gizmodo readers have to deal with it. I find them relaxing and even enjoy the occasional bubbles or bath bomb. That's why I think the Neptuner surround sound system by Neptune is the greatest invention ever.
