SpaceX’s rocket just exploded. Here’s why that’s such a big deal. - Since October, three rockets have blown up trying to resupply the International Space Station, including the latest on Sunday. The mishap is bad news for futurist tech guru Elon Musk, whose SpaceX company has been working hard to win U.S. government space contracts, particularly with the U.S. Air Force. The road has been rocky, however, with SpaceX at one point even suing the Air Force over rocket contracts.

Why June 30 will get an extra second: The mean solar day -- the average length of a day, based on how long it takes Earth to rotate -- is about 86,400.002 seconds long. That's because Earth's rotation is gradually slowing down a bit, due to a kind of braking force caused by the gravitational tug of war between Earth, the moon and the sun. Scientists estimate that the mean solar day hasn't been 86,400 seconds long since the year 1820 or so.

Scientists Are Perplexed By These Lights Shining from Planet Ceres: The dwarf planet Ceres is boggling the minds of some of the world’s leading scientists this week. They have no idea why there are two bright lights being emitted from the planet’s surface. Ceres is the biggest object spinning on the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. On February 19, NASA’s Dawn spacecraft snapped this photo 29,000 miles away from it:

NASA Found a Three-Mile High Pyramid Towering Over Mysterious Planet Ceres: Dawn will move from 2,700 miles above Ceres to just 900 at the end of this month. NASA’s hoping more close up photos will help solve the mystery.

NASA Found a Three-Mile High Pyramid Towering Over Mysterious Planet Ceres: Dawn’s instruments are analyzing the mysterious lights. They’re not sure yet if they’re ice, salt, geysers, volcanoes, or something else unexpected. The NASA spacecraft’s photos have just added a new layer to the Ceres mystery: this shot of a 3-mile high mountain, shaped almost perfectly like a pyramid. Its height is dramatic against Ceres’ vast, smooth surface.

Strange lights on dwarf planet Ceres have scientists perplexed - A dwarf planet is shining 2 bright lights at a NASA spacecraft right now, & our smartest scientists are unsure what they are. As bizarre as that sentence sounds, that's the situation with Ceres — the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars &Jupiter, officially designated as a dwarf planet (the same category as Pluto).

Pluto’s Moons Are Flopping Around All Over The Place: If Pluto were still officially recognized as a planet, it would be considered a part of a binary system. Pluto’s moon Charon is so large and so close that the two end up spinning around each other, sharing a gravitational field. That weird-shaped gravitational field causes problems for the smaller moons that orbit the pair. According to NASA, if you lived on one of Pluto’s moons, you’d probably have a hard time figuring out when and where the sun would rise each day.

NASA's 'Flying Saucer' Will Test Supersonic Landing From The Edge Of Space | Popular Science: NASA is going to see what it would be like to land a giant flying saucer on Mars by launching an experimental spacecraft here on Earth: the Low Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD). The space agency will use a giant weather balloon to carry the LDSD to an altitude of 120,000 feet above Hawaii. There, a rocket booster will shoot the disc up even farther to 180,000 feet, getting it up to supersonic speeds. That’s about how fast a lander will be traveling during a descent to Mars. As it’s traveling three times the speed of sound, the LDSD’s balloon will inflate and start slowing it down. Its supersonic parachute will then deploy, slowing the vehicle down even more until it gently lands in the Pacific Ocean. The parachute didn't work as well as expected during their spacecraft’s first test mission, so NASA scientists are hoping for a better result this time around.

Strangely spinning moon of Pluto: Astronomers say the Pluto system is more bizarre and complicated than anyone expected. "If you stood on [Pluto's moon] Nix, the sun might rise in the west and set in the east one day, and rise in the east and set in the north on another," Mark Showalter, a senior research scientist at the SETI Institute, tells Los Angeles Times Science and Health.

Once a pun a time... it all started with THE BIG BANG, a theory which describes how the Universe began in a rapid expansion about 13.7 billion years ago. It is thought that all of space was created in this first moment. Expert and scientist Stephen Hawking has even appeared in a cameo for American sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Here are some space puns: • How does the Solar System hold up its trousers? With an asteroid belt • What kinds of music do planets sing? Neptunes • An astronaut broke the law of gravity and earned a suspended sentence • That was a poor joke about infinity – it didn't have an ending

Mars astronauts risk brain damage from cosmic rays, say scientists: US researchers exposing mice to streams of high-energy particles similar to galactic cosmic rays discover damage to nervous system affecting cognition. Researchers have documented other curious effects of cosmic rays since humans first began to fly in space. In 1974, Nasa scientists revealed that astronauts onboard the last seven Apollo missions reported bright flashes, caused by cosmic ray particles penetrating their head and eyes.

"Catastrophic end" for out-of-control Russian space cargo ship: A Russian Progress cargo ship bound for the International Space Station spun out of control Tuesday. Engineers were unable to direct the wayward ship and soon gave up any hope that it would be able to dock to deliver the 3 tons of equipment and supplies it was carrying for the space station crew. Now, as the craft tumbles back toward Earth, specialists can't say for sure when it will return -- or where it might be heading.
