A NASA computer model visualizes in detail where carbon dioxide is released, how it moves across the globe and how it's affected by the seasons.
A gamma-ray burst known as GRB 090429B detected by NASA's Swift satellite was found to be a candidate for the most distant object in the Universe at an estimated distance of 13.14 billion light years, far beyond any known quasar...

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.
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
In what must be history’s longest distance wake up call, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft comes out of hibernation on December 6 at 3:00 pm EST. Now about 2.9 billion miles (4.6 billion km) from Earth, and 162 million miles (260 million...Show More Summary
NASA has announced that it is going forward with its Ionospheric Connection Explorer (ICON). Scheduled to launch in 2017, the orbital mission aims to study the effects of the lower atmosphere on the ionosphere and its impact on the Earth’s...Show More Summary
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...
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. More »
NASA scientists have produced an ultra-high resolution computer model showing the ebbs and flows of carbon dioxide over the course of an entire year. It's both stunning and undeniably frightening. Read more...
A new computer model showing the movements of carbon dioxide in the atmopshere could help scientists better predict future changes in climate
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…
This NASA video shows the greenhouse gas circulating around the globe over a span of one year.
A professor of physics at Caltech says that an Israeli scientist at the school shared secrets from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, or JPL, with Israeli government rocket scientists in violation of federal law, but that when she reported the matter to Caltech authorities, she was punished for the disclosure.
Reid Wiseman on what it's like to wake up to a view that's out of this world and become a social media supernova while sharing it
Off the radar when it comes to the daily concerns of the airline industry, NASA has published an interesting guide to where bright fireballs were recorded over the 1994-2013 period from small asteroids or meteors (or even fragments of comet debris). The sensors used by NASA are able to differentiate between the very high velocity [...]
Earlier this month, NASA science writer Dr Tony Phillips, took a radiation logger with him on a transcontinental US flight and found, as reported on SpaceWeather.com, that the radiation dose rate at 39,000 feet was 30 times higher than it was on the ground. If you found that SpaceWeather report thought provoking, clicking on the [...]
