Unprecedented neutrino discovery is a "Nobel Prize in the making" Uh, I'm probably not the right one to answer this, but I'll try.
Scientists to Io: Your Volcanoes Are in the Wrong Place Scientists to Io: Your Volcanoes Are in the Wrong Place Jupiter's moon Io is the most volcanically active world in the Solar System , with hundreds of volcanoes, some erupting lava fountains up to 250 miles high. However, concentrations of volcanic activity are significantly displaced from where they are expected to be based on models that predict how the moon's interior is heated, according to NASA and European Space Agency researchers. Io is caught in a tug-of-war between Jupiter's massive gravity and the smaller but precisely timed pulls from two neighboring moons that orbit further from Jupiter – Europa and Ganymede .

These are the postcards people will send home from their interplanetary vacations in 500 years. For now we can only gather them with robots, space stations and satellites. Still, it's pretty awesome to be living in a time when we can do even that. A gallery of sublime photographs from across our solar system

NASA develops 3D printing factory in space News: NASA is developing an orbiting factory that will use 3D printing and robots to fabricate giant structures such as antennas and solar arrays of up to a kilometre in length, as part of its ongoing search for extra-terrestrial life. The US space agency this week announced it was awarding technology firm Tethers Unlimited Inc (TUI) a $500,000 contract to develop the facility. The NASA funding - a second-phase contract that follows an initial contract issued earlier this year - will allow TUI to continue work on its SpiderFab technology, which allows large-scale spacecraft components to be built in space, avoiding the expense of building the components on earth and transporting them into space using rockets. “On-orbit fabrication allows the material for these critical components to be launched in a very compact and durable form, such as spools of fiber or blocks of polymer, so they can fit into a smaller, less expensive launch vehicle.”

How Asteroids Can Save Mankind
Top 25 things NASA has done | National Aeronautics And Space Administration celebrates 50th anniversary THE world was agog as astronaut Neil Armstrong placed a foot on the moon’s surface and declared: “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” But what the global audience didn’t know was the Apollo 11 mission had come so close to disaster that a back-up plan was ready in case the crew became marooned. Radio communications were to be cut, leaving the astronauts to die a slow death in dignity. Relief ...
Yep, we just smashed two spacecraft into the Moon As it turns out, due to gravitational anomalies (remnants of old impacts under the surface, not any woo-woo with gravity), it's essentially impossible to maintain a stable, low orbit around the moon. In order to do the mapping at that resolution, the probes had to fly below the safe limit. So there was no way of keeping them from crashing, it was just a matter of where. I know you weren't seriously objecting to what happened, I just think there's a cool reason behind what NASA did.
