Brown dwarfs in the Orion Nebula have atmospheres with water

last weekNews : The Raw Story

With the help of the Hubble Space Telescope, a NASA team has discovered a patch of low-mass brown dwarf planets in the Orion Nebula with water in their atmospheres, according to a release from NASA. The population of brown dwarfs is the largest known to researchers and they’re all surrounded by a...

NASA is cautiously moving ahead with manned flights by SpaceX and Boeing

The last time astronauts were able to get a direct flight from the U.S. to the stars was in 2011 when Space Shuttle Atlantis flew its last mission. That could change soon with both Boeing and SpaceX working to convince NASA that they...Show More Summary

Tropical Cyclone Joyce makes landfall on Australia's Pilbara Coast

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NOAA's JPSS-1 satellite provided a visible image of the tropical storm after it made landfall along the Pilbara Coast in the northwestern part of Western Australia.

Scientists found accessible ice sheets on Mars, and it could be a 'game-changer' for colonizing the planet

NASA scientists discovered eight instances of ice exposed on the Martian surface. While scientists have long known about the red planet's sub-surface ice sheets, this is the first time ice has been seen exposed and easily accessible. The...Show More Summary

Space!: Video Visualization Of A Speed Of Light Journey Through The Orion Nebula

last weekHumor / odd : Geekologie

This is a video created by NASA using actual visible-light observations from the Hubble Space Telescope and infrared-light observations from the Spitzer Space Telescope and combining them along with some CGI to create a beautiful speed-of-light fly through the Orion Nebula. Show More Summary

"A First" --NASA Enables X-Ray Navigation to Pilot Robotic Spacecraft for Deep Space Exploration

In a technology first, a team of NASA engineers has demonstrated fully autonomous X-ray navigation in space -- a capability that could revolutionize NASA's ability in the future to pilot robotic spacecraft to the far reaches of the solar system...        

NASA Finds Vast Deposits of Ice Just Under Martian Surface

We've known for years that there is at least some water ice on Mars, but it's been hard to pin down where it is and how easy it would be to extract. New data from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter indicates it could be almost everywhere. The post NASA Finds Vast Deposits of Ice Just Under Martian Surface appeared first on ExtremeTech.

NASA finds possible lava tubes that could support lunar colonies

NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter satellite has found clues to possible lava tubes on the Moon that could provide ready-built accommodation and supplies for future astronauts. The post NASA finds possible lava tubes that could support lunar colonies appeared first on Skymania News. Show More Summary

GeoCarb—a new view of carbon over the Americas

A new NASA Earth science mission in the early stages of design may achieve a transformational advance in our understanding of the global carbon cycle by mapping concentrations of key carbon gases from a new vantage point: geostationary orbit. Show More Summary

NASA Safety Watchdogs Raise Concerns About SpaceX, Boeing Spacecraft

NASA’s plan to routinely ferry astronauts into orbit using private spacecraft—initially slated to start last year—has slipped until at least the spring of 2019 and unresolved hazards threaten further delays.

Space in 2018: Big rockets, asteroid hunting and a close shave with the Sun

The year just gone was a momentous one for furthering our understanding of the universe. SpaceX now routinely lands its rockets, NASA's Cassini craft crashed into Saturn in a spectacular and invaluable mission finale and researchers proved once and for all the existence of gravitational waves. Show More Summary

It's an asteroid, no wait, a comet, no wait…

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has spied a unique object in the debris-filled asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter: a pair of asteroids — orbiting tightly around each other — that also show comet-like characteristics, including a bright halo of ice and dust known as a coma and a long tail of dust.

NASA Space Telescopes --"A Spectacular 3-D Journey Through the Orion Nebula --A Glimpse of What Might Have Happened When the Sun was Born" (WATCH Video)

"Being able to fly through the nebula's tapestry in three dimensions gives people a much better sense of what the universe is really like," explained the Space Telescope Science Institute's visualization scientist Frank Summers, who led the team that developed...        

3D scans reveal huge underground ice sheets on Mars

Mars may not be as dry as it looks. NASA and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) have used instruments onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) to analyze the vertical structure and thickness of buried ice sheets, which preserve...Show More Summary

Martian ice deposits could sustain human outposts in the future

last weekNews : The Raw Story

Scientists using images from an orbiting NASA spacecraft have detected eight sites where huge ice deposits near the Martian surface are exposed on steep slopes, a potential source of water that could help sustain future human outposts. While scientists already knew that about a third of the surface...

Erosion is revealing surprising amounts of water ice on Mars

If future astronauts need to mine water on Mars, they may not even have to dig. Thanks to erosion wearing away the Martian surface, scientists using NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter have spotted thick deposits of ice in the planet’s mid-latitudes that extend hundreds of feet deep. The discovery,...

NASA space telescopes provide a 3-D journey through the Orion Nebula

Astronomers and visualization specialists from NASA's Universe of Learning program have combined visible and infrared vision of the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes to create an unprecedented, three-dimensional, fly-through view of the picturesque Orion Nebula, a nearby star-forming region.
