A group of researchers in France have come up with a way of measuring seismic activity from space.
On Friday a house-sized asteroid will pass so close to the Earth, that satellites are scurrying to get out of its path.
A team from the U.K. is set to launch a tiny satellite this month that will be controlled by an Android smartphone.
Can't make it to Brazil for the next World Cup? The land of the rising sun is where you'll wanna go to get real close to the action.
A new system being developed by DARPA will let soldiers call up near-live satellite images on-demand from a fleet of orbiting mini satellites.
Most in-flight wireless Internet only works when your plane is over land, but United is introducing a new system that works over oceans.
DigitalGlobe owns three satellites with big cameras on them, which together have imaged nearly 2.8 billion square kilometers of Earth's surface. You probably don't care about 2.7999 billion of those square kilometers, but that's cool, because DigitalGlobe has picked out the 20 very best little patches of our planet for 2012.
An unmanned Japanese cargo vessel headed for the International Space Station (ISS) this week is carrying some unusual cargo. In addition to regular supplies, the vehicle contains some tiny, cube shaped satellites that when deployed will write Morse code messages visible in the night sky.
We've been fairly sure that Virgin Galactic had always intended to get into the commercial satellite business with its fancy midair launch system, especially now that Stratolaunch is planning to do the same thing, just bigger. In a press release today, Virgin announced LauncherOne, its new low-cost LEO launch system.
Back in October, we posted about a program DARPA has been working on to rip apart dead satellites and harvest their organs to make new(er) satellites. It seemed more than a little crazy, but the program is now moving forward, with DARPA holding industry conferences and putting down millions of dollars on the idea.
