NASA has been planning the first ever mining mission on the moon for several years, and now construction of the lander and rover that will carry it out is under way. NASA is […]
While El Niño may be partially behind rising temperatures, NASA says greenhouse gases are the main culprit.
This summer, with sea ice across the Arctic Ocean shrinking to below-average levels, a NASA airborne survey of polar ice just completed its first flights. Its target: aquamarine pools of melt water on the ice surface that may be accelerating the overall sea ice retreat.
That little blue checkmark next to a Twitter handle has long been held in high esteem. Originally reserved for the likes of Tony Hawk, San Francisco 311 and NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center, the checkmark, which denotes a verified...Show More Summary
Two key climate change indicators -- global surface temperatures and Arctic sea ice extent -- have broken numerous records through the first half of 2016, according to NASA analyses of ground-based observations and satellite data.
NASA’s Kepler spacecraft has pulled in the largest crop of confirmed exoplanets ever found by the K2 mission – a triple-digit trove that includes a star system with four small planets that may be rocky, like Earth. The 104 worlds, described in the Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series, bolster...
For seven hours on July 6, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) did a 360 degree spin, on one axis, through space. By taking images every 12 seconds and then colorizing the ultraviolet wavelengths of the photo in gold, NASA created...Show More Summary
A team of astronomers have discovered and confirmed 104 planets outside of our solar system using NASA’s Kepler spacecraft on its K2 mission. At least four of these have shown potential similarity to Earth, NASA confirmed Monday. The discoveries were published online in the Astrophysical Journal...
Nasa's Jet Propulsion Lab gives us a peek into the future of space exploration with their mixed reality tools. Read more on MAKE The post NASA Shapes the Future of Space Design and Exploration with its Mixed Reality Program appeared first on Make: DIY Projects and Ideas for Makers.
With the amount of beauty right here on Earth, it’s sometimes easy to forget just how amazing outer space can be. Fortunately for us, the good folks at NASA have
NASA has funded studies to investigate how new orbiter spacecraft can best serve a human ground crew on Mars for a potential mission in the 2020s
South Korea’s largest chemical company LG Chem will supply lithium-ion batteries for NASA’s spacesuits from the second half of the year. The contract with NASA marked the first such deal for a..
104 new exoplanets have been discovered by NASA’s Kepler Telescope during it’s K2 Mission. These 104 new exoplanets, so called for being a planet that orbits a sun outside our solar system, have been confirmed out of a posible 197 candidate exoplanets. Show More Summary
A NASA photo taken by the now out-of-commission Mars rover known as Spirit, when examined closely, reveals a “reptilian face” structure, according to the UFO expert who uncovered the new Martian anomaly — an anomaly that he says may not be immediately evident but can be seen with a practiced eye.

Best. Camp. Ever. The largest group of Australian students ever to visit the Houston Association for Space and Science Education (HASSE) Space School in the U.S have just returned. Bringing to life all facets of space exploration, science...Show More Summary
Now astronauts can test samples in space instead of sending them back to Earth.
An international team of astronomers led by the University of Arizona has discovered and confirmed a treasure trove of new worlds using NASA's Kepler spacecraft on its K2 mission. Among the findings tallying 197 initial planet candidates, scientists have confirmed 104 planets outside our solar system. Show More Summary
Tropical Storm Estelle continues to strengthen in the Eastern Pacific Ocean and NASA satellite imagery showed what appears to be a developing eye in the storm. On July 17 at 09:30 UTC (5:30 a.m. EDT), the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard the Suomi NPP satellite captured an image of Tropical Storm Estelle. Show More Summary
NASA satellite imagery revealed a cloud-filled eye in a weaker Hurricane Darby. Although obscured by clouds in previous days, the eye was apparent in wind data from NASA's RapidScat instrument. On July 16, NASA's RapidScat instrument...Show More Summary
NASA satellite imagery shows that Tropical Cyclone Abela's center has become tightly wrapped. On July 16 the first Tropical Cyclone of the year formed in the Southern Indian Ocean. Tropical cyclone 01S, now known as Abela, developed about 320 nautical miles west-southwest of Diego Garcia. read more
