A secret satellite was launched into space today. We don’t know just what it’s doing in space. But! We can see in these pictures exactly how it got there: aboard an incredibly fast rocket.
Having successfully launched and landed a few single rockets, SpaceX is now planning a simultaneous triple rocket landing. This is going to look cool.
Three new astronauts will start a trip up to the International Space Station tonight—and it all begins with a ride on the Soyuz spacecraft. Watch it launch live right here at 9:36 p.m. EDT.
To get the world’s most powerful rocket off the ground, it’s going to take some serious thrust from its rocket boosters. Today, NASA successfully tested one of those 77-ton rocket boosters by lighting it up at full power—all while never leaving the ground.
India just sent twenty satellites into space at once, the most the country has ever launched in a single go. The record is certainly impressive. The photo documentation of the satellites blasting off to the skies is simply incredible.
Blue Origin just launched its crew capsule into space—and then intentionally brought it in for a very soft crash.
Blue Origin is launching its crew capsule today—and then they’re going to take out its parachute and see what happens. You can watch it happen at 10:15 am ET.
Blue Origin, the notoriously-secretive space company, is launching its New Shepherd crew capsule this weekend. And, for the first time, you’re going to be able to watch it happen—right up to a pretty probable crash-landing.
After a string of successful ocean landings, SpaceX’s latest Falcon 9 rocket crashed hard right into its drone ship.
A pair of satellites is going up this morning on one of SpaceX’s Falcon 9s. Will the rocket pull off a double-satellite launch and ocean landing as neatly as it pulled off its singles? Let’s watch and find out!
The world’s most powerful rocket launched this weekend carrying... well, we’re still not quite sure what it was carrying (although speculation suggests a super secret spy satellite). What we do know is this: it launched, and it looked incredible.
We don’t know the type or purpose of the new spy satellite being launched by the US National Reconnaissance Office. What we do know is that its launch, aboard the world’s largest rocket, is happening today at 1:59 p.m. EDT—and it’s definitely going to look spectacular. [Update: The launch is now on Saturday, on…
We usually see rocket launches and landings from above. But there’s something about seeing the whole thing happen from the ground-up that’s just so much better.
Six seconds into its last departure for the ISS, Orbital ATK’s Antares rocket exploded. Last night, the newly-redesigned Antares passed its first hurdle to getting back in the air again, ahead of its planned blast off for the space station in July.
Yesterday, Russia launched its autonomous resupply spacecraft Progress into space. The International Space Station passed over the launch site at about the same time, offering the astronauts on board this amazing view.
For the fifth time in just over a week, SpaceX is trying to launch its Falcon 9 Rocket. Am I stuck in a timeloop? Is any of this real? Am I here? Are you?
There’s no greater celebration of your country’s majesty than putting its achievements on a postage stamp. Throughout the Cold War, the United States and Soviet Union both loved to put their space accomplishments on stamps. But with our New Cold War™, it’s North Korea’s turn.
SpaceX is making its fourth attempt in less than a week at getting its new Falcon 9 rocket launched. Will it finally make it up? Let’s see! (UPDATE: No, it won’t—the launch was scrubbed yet again, details below.)
Join us to watch live as SpaceX attempts to launch and land its Falcon 9 Rocket—a launch for which even the company itself says, “a successful landing is not expected.” Oh dear. (Update: With less than two minutes to spare, SpaceX scrubbed the launch for today—scroll down for the details.)
