NASA announced late Sunday EDT local time that mission controllers for its New Horizons spacecraft plan to return the probe to normal operations by July 7, or only a week in advance of its mission-crowning planned Pluto flyby. The announcement followed a late July 4th acknowledgement that mission controllers and engineers [...]
Yesterday afternoon, NASA lost contact with its New Horizons spacecraft for an hour for reasons unknown. This is generally not a good thing when you’re working with technology that’s 4.5 light hours away, but thankfully, NASA seems to have solved the problem. Read more...
NASA has resolved a subtle timing glitch that briefly knocked the Pluto-bound New Horizons probe out of action.
On July 4, NASA got an unexpected surprise: Its spacecraft, New Horizons, cut off communications with Earth as it was headed towards Pluto. New Horizons is scheduled to fly by Pluto on July 14 and use the seven instruments on board to...Show More Summary
An anomaly has been detected in US New Horizons spacecraft, which resulted in the loss of communication with Earth, NASA said Sunday.

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.
