CU Boulder has joined forces with universities and space agencies from around the world in an international effort to design and build small satellites as a way to train future scientists and engineers.
A solar instrument package designed and built by CU Boulder, considered a key tool to help monitor the planet's climate, has arrived at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida for a targeted November launch.
Chris Heckman and his students are working to strengthen the decision-making capabilities of autonomous cars. Though mostly focused on Earth-bound activities, the technology platform could one day further space exploration.
Measurements over the first 1,000 days of the MAVEN mission are providing insight into how the sun stripped Mars of most of its atmosphere, turning a planet once possibly habitable to microbial life into a barren desert world.
Two galaxy clusters in the process of merging created a layer of surprisingly hot gas between them that CU Boulder astronomers believe is from turbulence caused by banging into each other at supersonic speeds.
A SpaceX rocket launched two CU Boulder-built payloads to the International Space Station (ISS) from Florida, delivering equipment to look at changes in cardiovascular stem cells in microgravity and study a new bone-building drug.
