While astronomers crave more powerful telescopes and planetary scientists demand orbiters, landers, and rovers, quantum physicists want lower temperatures and microgravity.
Scientists say the light emitted from this dust likely traveled some 13.2 billion light-years to reach Earth.
While SpaceX pursues an accelerated path to the moon and beyond, Jeff Bezos maintains that small, incremental progress will help Blue Origin prosper in the long run.
Experts say China's space-exploration plans are part scientific ambition, part symbol of national prowess.
The relative visibility of yellow cabs make them 9 percent less likely to be rear-ended than blue ones, a large-scale study of taxis in Singapore has found.
The Amazon founder tweeted a pair of photos of Blue Origin's BE-4 engine, which he says will help 'end American dependence' on Russian rocket engines.
