Striking Animation Shows One Year of CO2 Swirling Through the Atmosphere

NASA has created a new, super high-resolution visualization of a year of CO2 swirling around in the atmosphere. The post Striking Animation Shows One Year of CO2 Swirling Through the Atmosphere appeared first on WIRED.

Revealed: The Lost Chapter of Interstellar

Before Cooper left his daughter to find humanity a new home in space, there were the Lazarus missions. Led by Dr. Mann, this was NASA’s first attempt to locate a hospitable exoplanet. So what happened to Mann on the other side of the wormhole? We teamed Christopher Nolan with award-winning comic-book artist Sean Gordon Murphy to tell Mann’s story. Show More Summary

Here's what a year's worth of carbon dioxide looks like

It's easy to talk about carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and their effect on our planet, but visualizing them? That's hard. Thankfully, NASA has stepped up to the plate with a computer model that shows how CO2 travels across Earth's atmosphere in the...

Why NASA Is Sending A Spacecraft To An Asteroid To Bring A Piece Back

Not to be outdone by their ESA colleagues, NASA is sending a spacecraft to an asteroid to bring a piece of it back. Her name is OSIRIS-REx, and she will be visiting Bennu — great name for an outpost in a sci-fi movie — one of the primordial asteroids that have been orbiting the sun for millions of years.

NASA video shows carbon dioxide traveling the globe

3 days agoTechnology : Tech Talk

A new computer model showing the movements of carbon dioxide in the atmopshere could help scientists better predict future changes in climate

Who needs an Orbiting Carbon Observatory to track it when you can model Carbon Dioxide movement?

Video follows. I had at first thought that this press release from NASA Goddard was telling me that they had taken the data from their new Orbiting Carbon Observatory and put it into a model that used wind data so that distribution and mixing could be tracked. Seems sensible, right? But no, they’ve created a…
