Recent studies suggest that Dimorphos, hit by NASA's DART probe, is 'healing', and changing its shape and surface.
Here's how NASA is working to predict and prevent the impact of an asteroid similar to the one that extinguished the dinosaurs.
NASA has revealed the first data on the asteroid Bennu, thanks to the OSIRIS-REx mission. The analysis shows an abundance of carbon and water, key elements for life
After a long journey, OSIRIS-REX brings a sample of the asteroid Bennu to Earth: it can provide us with crucial answers.
Astronomers are mapping the trajectories of dangerous asteroids over the next 1000 years: two of them could give us more of a headache.
The new Ceres-like asteroids could be responsible for the presence of ice and organic materials on Earth and Mars
The dinosaur killer asteroid has a precise identikit, but we know more and more about its "ferocity". Here is the latest discovery on the matter.
