NASA's "GoreSat" Weather Satellite Will Keep an Eye on Solar Winds

4 days agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

When the solar winds blow strong, it plays havoc with electronics here on Earth. We can protect our sensitive electronic infrastructure—power grids, navigation and communication satellites, and such—but only with sufficient warning. And that's where NASA's new DSCOVR satellite comes in. Read more...

NASA Wasted $349M on 'Ghost Tower'

Four years ago, NASA knew it wouldn't likely use a giant tower originally intended to test rockets—because the testing program was canceled. Yet the agency kept building the A-3 test stand and finally finished the $349 million project in June. And the costs keep coming, with the Mississippi structure...

Scientists used NASA satellite and aerial data to reconstruct how the ice sheet changed at nearly 100,000 locations over many years.

Single Pilots May Have to Fly Jetliners

Imagine peeking into a jetliner cockpit and seeing a single pilot in there, responsible for flying all of those people. Well, NASA wants to seriously consider that option with a new $4 million study, the Wall Street Journal reports. Contract winner Rockwell Collins Inc. will look at whether a second...

Hidden movements of Greenland Ice Sheet, runoff revealed

For years NASA has tracked changes in the massive Greenland Ice Sheet. This week scientists using NASA data released the most detailed picture ever of how the ice sheet moves toward the sea and new insights into the hidden plumbing of...Show More Summary

NASA discovers Mercury is 'under steady siege' from meteor showers

NASA's Messenger spacecraft has discovered what may be a recurring meteor shower on Mercury. The spacecraft found a "halo of gases" in Mercury's exosphere, reports. Scientists suspect the meteor shower may be associated with the Comet Encke, which also causes several yearly events on Earth. Show More Summary

NASA's Fermi Mission brings deeper focus to thunderstorm gamma-rays

Each day, thunderstorms around the world produce about a thousand quick bursts of gamma rays, some of the highest-energy light naturally found on Earth. By merging records of events seen by NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope with...Show More Summary

NASA catches Tropical Cyclone Bakung's remnants

Tropical Cyclone Bakung ran into adverse conditions in the Southern Indian Ocean that weakened it to a remnant low pressure system when NASA's Aqua satellite spotted it on Dec. 15. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument that flies aboard Aqua captured a visible picture of Bakung's elongated remnants on Dec. Show More Summary
