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.

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…

NASA maps 556 fireballs burning up over earth in 20 years

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 [...]

About your next flight, no make that next x-ray

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, 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 [...]

Here Are All 556 Asteroids That Bombarded Earth In The Past 20 Years

NASA has released a new map of every single asteroid that entered Earth’s atmosphere from 1994 to 2013. Although almost all 556 of the asteroids disintegrated harmlessly, this well splattered map shows us exactly how common asteroids strikes are and how often our atmosphere saves our skins.
