Each Antarctic spring and summer, NASA flies special aircraft over the continent to keep tabs on how global warming is altering the landscape. The agency does the same in the Arctic each summer, for a project known as Operation IceBridge. ...Show More Summary
Back in July, satellite images showed an iceberg bigger than the state of Delaware calving and drifting away from Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf. Well, it's summertime now in Antarctica, which means scientists are finally able to view this behemoth from up close - and the pictures are just as spectacular as we imagined. More »

Just yesterday, British tabloids loosed articles about two 'possible sightings.'
Jessica U. Meir sat down with TMS to talk about her career as a biologist and as one of the NASA astronauts who's working to get us to Mars. "There’s no one path to becoming an astronaut," she said. "Originally, all of the astronauts were white male military test pilots. And now the program is much more diverse."
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Science and Technology Council is bringing NASA scientists to Hollywood.

A team of NASA scientists want to use Earth as a laboratory to understand how planets lose their atmospheres and has proposed a mission that the agency recently selected as one of five for further consideration as a possible NASA Explorer mission.
The launch was stopped minutes before liftoff.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A NASA team is advancing a mission to reveal unprecedented details about solar flares, powerful eruptions that explode with enough energy that each one could power all of Earth for 16,000 years, and which -- when extreme -- can interfere with radio communications and satellites near Earth.
