Finnish filmmaker Jan Fröjdman spent three months stitching the images from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter HiRISE camera.
Nearly 50 million light-years from Earth, in the faint constellation of Horologium (also known as the Pendulum Clock), lies a spiral galaxy named NGC 1448. On Monday, NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) released an image of a section of the galaxy — one that shows it from a unique vantage...
Around the same time that the dinosaurs became extinct on Earth, a volcano on Mars went dormant, NASA researchers have learned.

The Dragon capsule was carrying more than 3,600 pounds of cargo back to Earth, some of which will be transported immediately to NASA scientists for study.
Today the Department of Outstanding Origami is checking out the work of origami artist Robert Lang, who’s so devoted to his craft that he quit his job as a NASA physicist in 2001 to focus solely on creating original origami designs. “With...Show More Summary
If the film Hidden Figures reminded us of anything, it's that it takes a village to get human beings into space. Some villagers tend to get more public recognition than others, but without each of them, nothing is going to space. Now, Gravitas Ventures has partnered with Haviland Digital to bring us the story of the unsung heroes of NASA'S mission control.
At the moment, NASA and other space agencies are operating satellites in orbit around Mars. The spacecraft are continuing to beam amazing images of the red planet's surface back to Earth, and some of the probes have even solved Martian...Show More Summary
It seems unlikely any directive has come down from the Trump administration.
New NASA research reveals that the giant Martian shield volcano Arsia Mons produced one new lava flow at its summit every 1 to 3 million years during the final peak of activity. The last volcanic activity there ceased about 50 million...Show More Summary
NASA already has robots exploring the surface of Mars, but there are plenty of places these roaming science laboratories cannot go. One day a pint-sized rover may help fill in the blanks, with the space agency developing a flat-packed,...Show More Summary
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Arsia Mons produced one new lava flow at its summit every 1 to 3 million years during the final peak of activity, about 50 million years ago.
(NASA/Johnson Space Center) A proof-of-concept investigation, Nanobiosym Genes, is sending two strains of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria to the International Space Station.
(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) The inner Van Allen belt has less radiation than previously believed, according to a recent study in the Journal of Geophysical Research. Observations from NASA's Van Allen probes show the fastest,...Show More Summary
Commercial airlines can significantly reduce pollution by using biofuels, according to a NASA study that found biofuel-powered jet engines reduces particle emissions in their exhaust by as much as 50 to 70 percent. The post Biofuels Cut Jet Engine Emissions, NASA Study Says appeared first on Environmental Leader.
(NASA/Johnson Space Center) Orbital ATK is targeted to launch its Cygnus spacecraft into orbit for a resupply mission to the International Space Station March 24, 2017 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
For the past twelve years, NASA’s High Resolution Image Science Experiment (HiRISE) has taken 50,000 stereo images mapping the surface of the Red Planet. While the stunning 3D images are all available online, that was simply not enough for Finnish filmmaker Jan Fröjdman. With 3D glasses not readily available, Fröjdman took it upon himself to […]
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Astronomers measured the light produced when a sun-like star wandered too close to a 3-million-solar-mass black hole similar to the one at the center of our own galaxy.
Taraji P. Henson’s career has been on fire. From playing a quick-witted, formerly incarcerated music executive Cookie Lyons on Empire to a brilliant NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, Henson’s made it pretty clear that she likes to...Show More Summary
(NASA/Johnson Space Center) Growing significant numbers of human stem cells in a short time could lead to new treatments for stroke and other diseases. Scientists are sending stem cells to the International Space Station to test whether these cells proliferate faster in microgravity without suffering any side effects.
