Enough is enough. The Administrator of NASA calls on congress to fully fund the space program. The post Congress, Don’t Make Us Hitch Rides With Russia. Love, NASA appeared first on WIRED.
NASA has released new images showing global sea level rise. The agency's scientists say sea levels have risen four inches in the last two decades. (Aug. 27)
A manned mission to Mars almost dictates a manned lunar return. Trouble is, there's little political will for such missions.
NASA measures sea level rise from space, and the outlook isn’t good.
With Arctic ice melting rapidly, recent studies conducted by NASA suggest that a sea level rise of at least three feet may be inevitable.
Sea levels worldwide rose an average of nearly 3 inches (8 cm) since 1992, the result of warming waters and melting ice, a panel of NASA scientists said on Wednesday. In 2013, a United Nations panel predicted sea levels would rise from 1 to 3 feet (0.3 to 0.9 meters) by the end of the century. Show More Summary
While NASA and its commercial partners try hard to develop several new American spacecraft in order to get American astronauts into Earth’s orbit and beyond, Russia is working on its own new craft, too. Read more...
On Aug. 26, NASA held a media teleconference regarding current predictions on sea level rise, highlighting the risks to coastal populations in low-lying areas, and the inherent problems in creating reliable global models. A panel ofShow More Summary
NASA has been pushing the safety features on its next-generation Orion spacecraft to the extreme, as it carried out a dramatic parachute test. During the est, engineers staged the failure of various components of the descent system in...Show More Summary

NASA has turned to a process devised in 1864 to help it measure shockwaves created by supersonic aircraft flight. The method, schlieren photography, was invented by German scientist August Toepler to observe the effect of objects moving through transparent media, such as water or air. Read more
Online UFOlogists have spotted yet another alien UFO in an image of the Sun captured by NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) on August 23, 2015. The UFO, according to UFOlogists, bears striking resemblance to the old NASA Atlas family of rockets. Show More Summary
Of course one got stuck in a tree.

Global sea levels are expected to rise at least three feet in the coming generations, displacing hundreds of millions of people, NASA said this week. And the space agency is prepared to catalog the disappearance of Earth’s coastlines in rich scientific detail. Read more...
Data collected by NASA satellites illustrates sea level rise around the globe
We’ve gotten a few looks at Ares 3, the mission at the heart of the upcoming film The Martian, and this one comes courtesy of astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Coming to us from the year 2035, Tyson explains the challenges that the crew of the Martian mission will face. Read more...
NASA’s Orion spacecraft completed a key parachute test Aug. 26 at the U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground in Yuma, Arizona.
New research finds that seas have risen by an average of three inches over the past two decades, and they're only going up.
We’ve seen a lot from NASA over the years, from original space exploration photos to intriguing experiments to some of the most incredible time-lapse footage you will ever watch. Heck, we’ve even witnessed a moon landing Hasselblad go for three quarters of a million dollars! But, we’re talking mere rocket scientists here, not esteemed photographers with [...]Show More Summary
