Dawn brings the sight of Dream Chaser, Sierra Nevada Corporation's reusable spacecraft, as it sits on the runway at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center (AFRC).
An asteroid passed 26,000 miles from Earth early Thursday morning, but NASA scientists weren't alarmed: They had been waiting for this space rock, named 2012 TC4, to cruise by for around five years. The asteroid is estimated to be about 45 to 100 feet in diameter, so it never had the potential to catastrophically harm the Earth. Show More Summary
The next generation of American spacecraft and rockets that will launch astronauts to the International Space Station are nearing the final stages of development and evaluation. NASA’s Commercial Crew Program will return human spaceflight launches to U.S. Show More Summary
That looks really uncomfortable.
(Michigan Technological University) Carbon dioxide measured by a NASA satellite pinpoints sources of the gas from human and volcanic activities, which may help monitor greenhouse gases responsible for climate change.
A four-city tour comes on the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Moon landings.
Fires, drought and warmer temperatures were to blame for excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere during the 2015-2016 El Niño, scientists with NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 say. The findings, part of five papers published in the journal Science, shed light on the mechanisms through which...
Data from a circling NASA satellite shows spikes in carbon emissions worldwide, particularly in winter, along with new insights into the rising levels of pollutants that drive global warming, researchers said Thursday.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Heaviest rainfall in Ophelia was found south of the center by the Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core observatory satellite as it passed overhead and analyzed the storm with radar from space.
(American Association for the Advancement of Science) Five new studies highlight results from NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) mission, an endeavor to map out the world's carbon cycle from space.
A NASA satellite has found another thing to blame on El Nino: A recent record high increase of carbon dioxide in the air. A study published Thursday in the journal … Click to Continue »
(University of Sydney) University of Sydney and NASA have developed a revolutionary technique to image plant photosynthesis using satellite-based remote-sensing, with potential applications in climate change monitoring. The uptake of...Show More Summary
As NASA's Cassini spacecraft made its fateful dive into the upper atmosphere of Saturn on Sept. 15, the spacecraft was live-streaming data from eight of its science instruments, along with readings from a variety of engineering systems. Show More Summary
Six people recently returned from an eight-month long isolation experiment to test human endurance for long-term space missions. Their "journey to Mars" involved being isolated below the summit of the world's largest active volcano in Hawaii (Mauna Loa), and was designed to better understand the psychological impacts of manned missions.
International asteroid warning network to be put to the test by 50ft-wide asteroid.
The secret is in their ability to withstand heat.
A Massachusetts auction house is selling vintage photographs taken by American astronauts.
BOSTON (AP) — John Glenn was the first person to snap a photograph of Earth from outer space. Neil Armstrong took the first picture from the moon's surface. The original prints of those are among 445 rare photos taken by American astronauts...Show More Summary
"The gathering will begin with an overview of new findings from LIGO, Virgo and partners that span the globe," the National Science Foundation announcement reads, "followed by details from telescopes that work with the LIGO and Virgo collaborations to study...
On September 15, 2017, the Cassini mission came to a fiery end as the unmanned deep space probe slammed into the atmosphere of Saturn. Now, thanks to telemetry sent by the spacecraft during its final plunge, NASA engineers have beenShow More Summary
