Satellites show massive Southwest groundwater loss

6 days agoNews : The Newsroom

Groundwater losses from the Colorado River basin appear massive enough to challenge long-term water supplies for the seven states and parts of Mexico that it serves, according to a new study released Thursday that used NASA satellit...

NASA begins to plan successor to the Hubble and James Webb deep space telescopes

NASA has assembled a team of scientists and engineers to lay the first tentative plans for a successor platform to the Hubble and James Webb telescopes. The project, currently in the study phase, is being assessed for the technological...Show More Summary

Hubble finds 3 surprisingly dry exoplanets

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have gone looking for water vapor in the atmospheres of three planets orbiting stars similar to the sun -- and have come up nearly dry. The three planets, known as HD 189733b, HD 209458b,...Show More Summary

Parched West is using up underground water, UCI, NASA find

Irvine, Calif., July 24, 2014 — A new study by University of California, Irvine and NASA scientists finds more than 75 percent of the water loss in the drought-stricken Colorado River Basin since late 2004 came from underground resources. The extent of groundwater loss may pose a greater threat to the water supply of the western United States than previously thought. read more

NASA Tests A Prototype Of An Alien-Hunting Robotic Ice Drill

last weekGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Recent discoveries of active under-ice oceans on Europa and Enceladus have kindled speculation that life may exist at the outer reaches of our solar system. But to prove it, we're going to have to employ devices like the one recently tested by NASA in Alaska. Read more...

NASA Made An Underground Water Map To See Just How Bad The Drought Is

On this dry July day, news about the drought that's engulfed most of the western United States continues to get worse. But how do we know how extensive the current megadrought is? We actually can measure from the sky, but not in the way you think. Read more...

Thanks to NASA, you can 3D print your own asteroids and satellites

If you have access to a 3D printer, you can now output your own space-exploring fleet thanks to NASA. The space agency has posted a library of files for printing a number of space probes, asteroids and Mars' Gale Crater. For the curious, Mars...

New mass map of a distant galaxy cluster is the most precise yet

Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have mapped the mass within a galaxy cluster more precisely than ever before. Created using observations from Hubble's Frontier Fields observing programme, the map shows the amount...Show More Summary

GAO report warns of cost and schedule risks to SLS

In contrast to NASA and industry claims that work on the Space Launch System (SLS) is on track, a report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released Wednesday warned that tight schedules and budgets could delay the first launch of that heavy-lift rocket. The report, requested by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), warned that the flat [...]

Prototype NASA robot will burrow through sheets of alien ice

When it came to life on Mars, NASA might have struck out, but it's got a good feeling about Europa. The agency is working on a probe designed to scan its vast oceans for signs of alien life, but there's a problem, namely the 30 feet of ice that...

NASA Needs Commercial Satellite Communications Services On Mars

Because the satellites currently orbiting the Earth are getting old and the data NASA is after is so sensitive in nature, the space agency would like to set up a much better relay system with the red planet and all the equipment there. With this in mind, they have put out a call for a

Hacked e-cigarette vaporizer can send smells…in space!

This 3D printed scent distributor was put together by eight people from three states during the 2014 NYC NASA Space Apps Challenge. The team went on to take 1 st place in the competition. The project is called Senti8 and uses a FLORA Arduino micro-controller and a Neopixel LED strip purchased from Adafruit. Show More Summary
