Year already on track for new warming record.
Space telescope Hubble and its successor, the James Webb Space Telescope are made with huge, expensive mirrors. And that can be a problem when you’re paying to launch the thing into space. So instead of one big mirror, how about thousands, or even millions, of tiny ones? In other words, how about glitter? Read more...
NASA’s impressive new electric rover vehicle can deftly maneuver into the tightest of spaces, thanks to independent four-wheel 180º steering. It can also be remotely operated. We want one of these just to drive around town now.
The first three months of 2015 were the warmest start to any year on record, according to new data released from NASA on Wednesday. All major global temperature-tracking agencies have ranked January, February, and March 2015 as among the warmest three months on record, respectively. Show More Summary
