Have You Seen the Most Recent Saturn Images From Cassini Yet? Because They Are Splendid - I can't decide between a Beyoncé joke or a Sailor Moon one right now.

2 days agoOdd : Geekosystem

NASA's Cassini spacecraft has been zooming around taking raw images of Saturn for the past ten years. Though sometimes blurry and usually in black-and-white, these pictures are also some of the closest and most compelling images of the ringed planet that humanity has ever witnessed.

NASA, NOAA satellites help confirm Tropical Storm Fausto as a remnant low

NOAA's GOES-West and NASA-JAXA's Global Precipitation Measurement or GPM mission satellite helped forecasters at the National Hurricane Center determine that what was once Tropical Storm Fausto is now a remnant area of low pressure in...Show More Summary

NASA’s new astronaut-replacing robots, powered by Google Tango smartphones, launch into space this week

First robots stole our jobs here on Earth -- and now Google and NASA want to do the same to our astronauts. Later this week, Google and NASA will launch some Tango smartphone-powered SPHERES robots to the International Space Station....Show More Summary

You get three-for-one in this striking image of Saturn: its north polar vortex and hexagon along with its expansive rings. It was captured by Cassini's wide-angle camera earlier this year. [NASA] Read more...

Friction from tides could help distant Earth-sized planets survive, and thrive

As anybody who has started a campfire by rubbing sticks knows, friction generates heat. Now, computer modeling by NASA scientists shows that friction could be the key to survival for some distant Earth-sized planets traveling in dangerous orbits. Show More Summary

NASA Mars Orbiter views rover crossing into new zone

NASA Mars rover Curiosity has driven out of the ellipse, approximately 4 miles wide and 12 miles long (7 kilometers by 20 kilometers), that was mapped as safe terrain for its 2012 landing inside Gale Crater.

Sun sends more 'tsunami waves' to Voyager 1

NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft has experienced a new "tsunami wave" from the sun as it sails through interstellar space. Such waves are what led scientists to the conclusion, in the fall of 2013, that Voyager had indeed left our sun's bubble, entering a new frontier.

NASA's RapidScat to unveil hidden cycles of sea winds

Ocean waves, the hot sun, sea breezes -- the right combination makes a great day at the beach. A different combination makes a killer hurricane. The complex interactions of the ocean and the air above it that can create such different outcomes are not yet fully known. Show More Summary

NASA shake test for the Saturn V rocket looked ridiculous but it worked

3 days agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Sometimes NASA comes up with incredibly complex solutions to extremely complex problems. Other times they come up with the simplest ones. And then there's the case of how to test the stability of an entire Saturn V rocket, which is what you can see in this hilarious video from 1966. Read more...

Google's Smartphone Technology Will Help NASA Robots Navigate The International Space Station

Google smartphones will take NASA astronaut robots from 2006 tech to the future of space travel, according to Reuters. Robots with the phones, armed with technology from Google's augmented reality experiment Project Tango, are set to launch on July 11. Show More Summary

NASA has received new confirmation that the Voyager 1 spacecraft is in interstellar space.

3 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

NASA has received new confirmation that the Voyager 1 spacecraft is in interstellar space. The probe recently experienced a "tsunami shock wave" from the Sun, which caused the plasma surrounding the craft to "sing." Voyager 1 may be beyond the heliosphere, but it hasn't yet left the solar system, which lies beyond the distant Oort Cloud. Read more...

Mechanical 'hiccups' complicate satellite reboot mission

Is NASA's forsaken ISEE-3 satellite finally headed home? On Tuesday a private team of engineers initiated a series of propulsive bursts intended to return the aging spacecraft to Earth orbit.

Voyager 1 in interstellar space, NASA confirms

Researchers are now able to determine that NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft left the solar system in August, 2012

NASA's SDO spots a summer solar flare

The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 12:20 p.m. EDT on July 8, 2014, and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured images of the event. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot...Show More Summary
