I am pleased and excited to introduce a new series here at SkyFeed. While SkyFeed is primarily a space news resource, we will be posting regular resources about astronomy, space, and science. To start, we are focusing on planets in the Milky Way!
Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun. It is 58 million kilometers (about 36 million miles) from the Sun. For comparison, our own planet is 150 million kilometers (93 million...
If you've been paying attention to science news for the past few weeks, chances are you've heard about the comet that is currently viewable from Earth. Comet NEOWISE, or C/2020 F3, was discovered in March and is currently at it's closest approach to Earth TODAY.
You've still got a great chance to go out and see the comet tonight and early tomorrow morning for a view of NEOWISE at it's closet approach to Earth. It may be 103.5 m...
A lot as been going on this past week in space, as well as in the regular world. Rather than cover the launch week with an informational update, I thought it might be fun to take a look back at the fun moments from the event. Here are my top six favorite moments.

On November 2nd, a Zero G oven was sent to the International Space Station along with a bunch of other important supplies aboard the Cygnus spacecraft.
What Exactly Is A Zero-G Oven?
According to the creators, Zero G Kitchen, it's "an oven designed to freshly prepare small food items, such as rolls, cookies, patties, pockets and other basic foods for longer duration space travel." The oven works to bake items in zero gravity.
The first all-female space walk is planned to take place this Friday, October 18, 2019. Astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir will perform the historic spacewalk to replace a faulty battery charge-discharge unit.
50 years after Apollo 11, NASA is working to return astronauts to the Moon to test technologies and techniques for the next giant leaps – challenging missions to Mars and other destinations in deep space.
Earlier this month, I traveled all the way from Southern California to NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center in Hancock County, Mississippi, to meet up with a team of strangers who share a similar interest in advancing space exploration. What makes NCAS so special?
