I don't know why NASA bothers sending spacecraft to learn about other planets, especially when the missions are all about learning how those planets formed. The answers are right in front of us. Or at least that's what Marvin McFaddin told the Lexington Herald-Leader in a letter-to-the-editor:
The heat wave continues. Last month was the hottest June ever recorded, according to both NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This marks the 14th month in a row that global heat records have been broken. Show More Summary
Last month, scientists reported an earlier-than-normal annual melting of Arctic sea ice, and now NASA researchers taking further stock of the situation are providing a clearer picture of exactly how fast it is shrinking and the reasons why. Show More Summary
Announcing the discovery of over 100 new exoplanets identified by the Kepler space telescope, NASA has highlighted four planets, potentially rocky bodies, two of which may be capable of supporting life, orbiting a distant star.
NASA says the first six months of 2016 have broken more records for warming temperatures and melting sea ice. CBS News' Mark Albert reports.
Report shows the first half of this year has been the hottest ever, with severe sea ice melt
NASA has been planning the first ever mining mission on the moon for several years, and now construction of the lander and rover that will carry it out is under way. NASA is […]
While El Niño may be partially behind rising temperatures, NASA says greenhouse gases are the main culprit.
This summer, with sea ice across the Arctic Ocean shrinking to below-average levels, a NASA airborne survey of polar ice just completed its first flights. Its target: aquamarine pools of melt water on the ice surface that may be accelerating the overall sea ice retreat.
That little blue checkmark next to a Twitter handle has long been held in high esteem. Originally reserved for the likes of Tony Hawk, San Francisco 311 and NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center, the checkmark, which denotes a verified...Show More Summary
Two key climate change indicators -- global surface temperatures and Arctic sea ice extent -- have broken numerous records through the first half of 2016, according to NASA analyses of ground-based observations and satellite data.
NASA’s Kepler spacecraft has pulled in the largest crop of confirmed exoplanets ever found by the K2 mission – a triple-digit trove that includes a star system with four small planets that may be rocky, like Earth. The 104 worlds, described in the Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series, bolster...
For seven hours on July 6, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) did a 360 degree spin, on one axis, through space. By taking images every 12 seconds and then colorizing the ultraviolet wavelengths of the photo in gold, NASA created...Show More Summary
A team of astronomers have discovered and confirmed 104 planets outside of our solar system using NASA’s Kepler spacecraft on its K2 mission. At least four of these have shown potential similarity to Earth, NASA confirmed Monday. The discoveries were published online in the Astrophysical Journal...
Nasa's Jet Propulsion Lab gives us a peek into the future of space exploration with their mixed reality tools. Read more on MAKE The post NASA Shapes the Future of Space Design and Exploration with its Mixed Reality Program appeared first on Make: DIY Projects and Ideas for Makers.
With the amount of beauty right here on Earth, it’s sometimes easy to forget just how amazing outer space can be. Fortunately for us, the good folks at NASA have
NASA has funded studies to investigate how new orbiter spacecraft can best serve a human ground crew on Mars for a potential mission in the 2020s
South Korea’s largest chemical company LG Chem will supply lithium-ion batteries for NASA’s spacesuits from the second half of the year. The contract with NASA marked the first such deal for a..
104 new exoplanets have been discovered by NASA’s Kepler Telescope during it’s K2 Mission. These 104 new exoplanets, so called for being a planet that orbits a sun outside our solar system, have been confirmed out of a posible 197 candidate exoplanets. Show More Summary
A NASA photo taken by the now out-of-commission Mars rover known as Spirit, when examined closely, reveals a “reptilian face” structure, according to the UFO expert who uncovered the new Martian anomaly — an anomaly that he says may not be immediately evident but can be seen with a practiced eye.
