On NASA's Fecal Containment System: "Basically it’s a Shop-Vac."
By day, she’s a NASA data scientist. By night, she’s working on map-based jewelry.
Ten days before NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft was due to make its closest approach to Pluto, the space agency reports that at 1:54 pm EDT on the afternoon of July 4th local U.S. time, it lost contact with the $700 million unmanned flyby mission for more than an hour and [...]
Engineers are reviewing telemetry to figure out what caused the Pluto-bound New Horizons probe to go into protective 'safe mode' Saturday.
This past March, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope revealed the best evidence yet for an underground saltwater ocean on Ganymede, Jupiter's largest moon. The subterranean ocean is thought to have more water than all the water on Earth's surface. Identifying liquid...
NASA's New Horizons - the fastest spacecraft ever created - will speed past Pluto on July 14, 2015, beaming back high resolution photos (and invaluable data) of the dwarf planet's surface for the first time in human history. YouTube link The Presurfer
When it comes to fireworks, NASA doesn’t play around. A decade ago, they crashed a probe into a comet just to watch the cosmic display, and now they’ve turned that moment into a Vine. Read more...
NASA experts use what is called "the chain of events" to understand the root causes of failures. In this chain, a cause creates an effect that becomes the cause of a new effect and so on until the failure occurs. If multiple events can connect and lead to a failure, the opposite is true as well.

New color images from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft show two very different faces of the mysterious dwarf planet, one with a series of intriguing spots along the equator that are evenly spaced. Each of the spots is about 300 miles....
China is a very difficult solar market to track from the outside. There's no doubt that the Chinese PV market is growing at unprecedented speed. But determining its overall health is more of an art than a science. So perhaps the scientists can help. read more
Four Roses private barrel offerings are invariably fun to find and taste, and this selection from Nasa Liquor, a shop in Houston, Texas, is no exception. This is an OESF Four Roses (20% rye, made with Four Roses’ “herbal” yeast), aged… Continue reading ?

New colour images acquired by NASA’s New Horizon’s spacecraft show us Pluto as we’ve never seen it before — and on its surface appear to be a series of giant spots that scientists can not yet explain. More »
With Beijing’s dense population and smoggy skies, it stands to reason that the Connecticut-sized city would be radiating an outsized environmental impact. But until now, we weren’t clear on just how bad it was. Researchers from NASAShow More Summary
Recent images taken by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft reveal four mysterious dark spots that appear to be evenly spaced along Pluto's equator.
To the surprise of researchers, a NASA spacecraft on course for a historic Pluto flyby discovered no signs of rings or additional moons in the dwarf planet's system.
A group of students at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) have built a rocket engine modeled after the one used to power NASA’s Saturn V moon rocket, but instead of using conventional machining techniques, they used 3D-printing.
A measure calling for the statue of Father Junipero Serra in the U.S. Capitol to be replaced with one of NASA astronaut Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, was shelved in the California Assembly on Thursday.
William Borucki's service at NASA's Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California, culminated with the development and launch of NASA's first mission to detect Earth-size planets around other stars in the habitable zone -- the range of distances from the...
After a string of launch failures, NASA says astronauts have just four months of supplies left. A Russian rocket launching early Friday could provide relief.
Rovio's Angry Birds Space game gets an update today that adds 15 Solar System levels. Each level features a different planet, comet or satellite in our Solar System.
