A handout image shot with the Cassini spacecraft’s camera of Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons, across the unilluminated side of Saturn's rings, taken on Oct. 27, 2007. After 13 years of researching and imaging the ringed planet and its many moons, NASA will end the mission in September 2017. The spacecraft will fly into the atmosphere of Saturn and burn up.

Contractors are working through the summer to complete the latest addition of four research pods to the UND space studies Mars habitat research site. Project leader Pablo de León hopes to be running a mission by early fall using two of the new pods. The pod at right is the habitat's central unit, which was built in 2011 and has been since been used for experiments. Andrew Haffner / Forum News Service

Artist's concept depicts an itsy bitsy planetary system -- so compact, in fact, that it's more like Jupiter and its moons than a star and its planets. Astronomers using data from NASA's Kepler mission and ground-based telescopes recently confirmed that the system, called KOI-961, hosts the three smallest exoplanets known so far to orbit a star other than our sun.
