Reaching new lows.
Calm down, everyone.
New research suggests another possible origin for mysterious, recurring streaks in the Martian landscape.
A hundred years later, the Titanic‘s maiden voyage would probably have gone a lot smoother. Glaciers around the world have gradually shrunk since the 1960s: ice melts, filling the ocean and rising sea […] The post NASA Pinpoints Which Melting Glaciers Will Drown Your City appeared first on Geek.com.
There is a sound like a mysterious whistling coming from space and scientists believe they understand where it's coming from. Image: Tony Phillips/NASA Read more...
Thanks to the efforts of NASA and various other space agencies from around the world, we've learned more about Mars in the past decade or so than scientists ever could have dreamed. We know a lot about what it's made of, what's there now and what may have been there in the distant past, but some pretty head-scratching questions still remain. Show More Summary
Tropical Depression Kirogi made landfall in southeastern Vietnam on Nov. 19 and NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the storm as it was dissipating over land. Kirogi made landfall at 1 a.m. EST (0600 UTC) on Sunday, Nov. 19 approximately...Show More Summary
Sorry, NASA: A new study says those Martian “wet” streaks are just dry sand.
A stunning new visualization made by NASA Goddard shows how smoke, sea salt, and dust moved through the atmosphere during the 2017 hurricane season. The supercomputer-created simulation shows how atmospheric particles interact with storms...Show More Summary
By now you've no doubt seen and heard the case that conspiracy theorists have put forth regarding their belief that NASA never actually landed on the moon. They believe that, for a number of different possible reasons, the original moon landing and all subsequent visits to the lunar surface were nothing more than a big Hollywood-level production.

"What a fascinating discovery this is!" said Paul Chodas, manager of the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. "It's a strange visitor from a faraway star system, shaped like nothing we've ever seen in our own...
Extreme Antarctic winds shape trees in the image above into beautiful forms on Slope Point, New Zealand. From rainforests to croplands, boreal forests to mangroves, NASA will take a new look at terrestrial vegetation across our living planet over the...
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The vault-like, 40-foot diameter, 40-ton door of Chamber A at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston was unsealed on Nov. 18, signaling the end of cryogenic testing for NASA's James Webb Space Telescope.

NASA has performed the first test of its supersonic parachute as part of its Mars 2020 mission. This essential component will allow the Mars-bound spacecraft to slow down as its enters the planet's atmosphere whilst traveling at speeds...Show More Summary
The destructive dance of dust and salt unleashed by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, José, and María has been visualized by scientists at NASA by combining satellite data with the latest computer model simulations. It shows how the powerfulShow More Summary
(Phys.org)—NASA's prolonged Kepler exoplanet-hunting mission, known as K2, has revealed the presence of another "super-Earth" alien world. The newly found planet, designated EPIC 246393474 b (or C12_3474 b), is more than five times more massive than the Earth and orbits its parent star in less than seven hours. Show More Summary
One application for NASA, please.
From rainforests to croplands, boreal forests to mangroves, NASA will take a new look at terrestrial vegetation across our living planet over the next two years with several unique instruments in space. The missions will help scientists investigate the role of plants in Earth's global carbon and water cycles.
