NASA's Swift mission probes an exotic object: 'Kicked' black hole or mega star?

Astronomers have discovered an unusual source of light in a galaxy some 90 million light-years away. The dwarf galaxy Markarian 177 (center) and its unusual source SDSS1133 (blue) lie 90 million light-years away. The galaxies are located in the bowl of the Big Dipper, a well-known star pattern in the constellation Ursa Major.

GPM measured Tropical Storm Adjali's rainfall before dissipation

Moderate rainfall was occurring around the center of Tropical Storm Adjali before it dissipated, according to data from NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Global Precipitation Measurement or GPM satellites. Adjali became the first named storm of the Southwest Indian Ocean 2014/2015 cyclone season when it formed on November 16, 2014. Show More Summary

Deserted Space: Photos Document NASA’s Abandoned Launch Pads

The race for space has shifted gears in recent years with the rise of private programs, leaving a series of amazing space-related graveyards around the United...

NASA's Voyage to Asteroid Bennu --"A Pristine Time Capsule of Our Origins" (VIDEO)

Born from the rubble of a violent collision, hurled through space for millions of years and dismembered by the gravity of planets, asteroid Bennu had a tough life in a rough neighborhood: the early solar system. "Bennu's Journey," a new...

NASA Charts Real-Time Carbon Emissions in Ultra High-Resolution Climate Model (VIDEO) NASA just launched a new high-resolution computer model that gives a stunning look at the yearly movement of carbon emissions through the planet’s atmosphere. NASA created the model by combining ground-based

"Large Chunk of Milky Way's 1st Generation Stars are Missing"

Thanks to the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, some of the most mysterious cosmic residents have just become even more puzzling. New observations of globular clusters in a small galaxy show they are very similar to those found in the Milky...

NASA’s building a ‘living’ drone that decomposes on impact

If you’re flying surveillance drones and don’t want them to be found by the people you’re spying on, ‘living’ drones that decompose after a crash landing might be just what you’re looking for. NASA and a team of students from … Continue reading ?

How NASA Plans to Land Humans on Mars

On the surface, NASA's humans to Mars plans seem vague and disjointed. But that's because the agency is playing the long game. Right now, it may be the only game they can play.

How a Superchilled Telescope Will Look Back at the Dawn of the Universe

To see back in time, you need a massive telescope—one big enough to capture light from when the first galaxies were formed, 13.5 billion years ago. Astronomers are clamoring to see this light, so NASA is obliging them by building the James Webb Space Telescope. Show More Summary

We All Might Be Living In An Infinite Hologram

NASA Quarks and leptons, the building blocks of matter, are staggeringly small—less than an attometer (a billionth of a billionth of a meter) in diameter. But zoom in closer—a billion times more—past zeptometers and yoctometers, to where the units run out of names. Show More Summary

NASA Shows How Carbon Emissions Travel Around The World

NASA scientists have brought to life the invisible carbon emissions floating around the atmosphere in a vivid, swirling simulation. The “Year in The Life of Earth’s CO 2 ” computer model is the first to show in such fine detail how carbon...Show More Summary

Inside "The Domes," Where NASA Drives the Spacecraft of the Future

3 days agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Deep in the belly of the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, lie "The Domes." Step into one of them and suddenly you're standing on the surface of Mars, or you're flying high above the Earth, looking out from the International Space Station. This is the Systems Engineering Simulator, where we learned to fly, drive, and design better space vehicles. Read more...
