NASA Goddard Rocket Garden in Lanham, Maryland

Just outside of Washington, D.C., you’ll find the Goddard Space Flight Center, one of NASA's primary research laboratories. As the agency's first space center, scientists and engineers at Goddard were involved in the agency's achievements from the very start. Show More Summary

NASA scientists embark on extreme Antarctic trek

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) In temperatures that can drop below -20 degrees Fahrenheit, along a route occasionally blocked by wind-driven ice dunes, a hundred miles from any other people, a team led by two NASA scientists will survey an unexplored stretch of Antarctic ice.

NASA researchers share perspective on key elements of ozone layer recovery

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Each year, ozone-depleting compounds in the upper atmosphere destroy the protective ozone layer, and in particular above Antarctica.

NASA looks at rainfall in developing Tropical Storm Kai-tak

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Kai-tak developed near the east central Philippines as the Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite passed overhead and analyzed its rainfall.

NASA sees developing system 96W affecting central Philippines

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A developing area of tropical low pressure designated System 96W was affecting the central Philippines when NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed overhead.

Mars mission sheds light on habitability of distant planets

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Insights from NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution, or MAVEN, mission about the loss of the Red Planet's atmosphere can help scientists understand the habitability of rocky planets orbiting other stars.

Spanning disciplines in the search for life beyond Earth

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Following a gold rush of exoplanet discovery, the next step in the search for life is determining which of the known exoplanets are proper candidates for life -- and for this, a cross-disciplinary approach is essential.

NOAA/NASA's Suomi NPP satellite provides copious information on California's fires

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The Thomas fire, the fifth largest in California's history, continues to creep towards Montecito and Santa Barbara, and is currently 234,200 acres in size. That is about 4,200 acres larger than yesterday. Reports today are citing the fire at 20 percent containment per Inciweb.

NASA analyzes short-lived Bay of Bengal cyclone

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA analyzed the rainfall generated by short-lived Tropical Cyclone 04B that formed and faded over a day in the Bay of Bengal.

Eclipse 2017: Science from the Moon's shadow

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) While people across North America took in the Aug. 21 eclipse, hundreds of citizen, student, and professional scientists were collecting scientific data, and their efforts are beginning to return results.

NASA shows new Tongan island made of tuff stuff, likely to persist years

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) In late December 2014, a submarine volcano in the South Pacific Kingdom of Tonga erupted, sending a violent stream of steam, ash and rock into the air. The ash plumes rose as high as 30,000 feet (9 kilometers) into the sky, diverting flights. Show More Summary

NASA, University of Maryland join forces on food security

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA has tapped the University of Maryland to lead a new consortium focused on putting satellite data to use to enhance food security and agriculture around the world.The Earth Observations for Food...Show More Summary

Can data save dolphins?

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) After a collaboration between NASA scientists and marine biologists, new research rules out space weather as a primary cause of animal beachings.

NASA's CATS concludes successful mission on space station

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A spaceborne lidar instrument that fired more laser pulses than any previous orbiting instrument has ended its operations on the International Space Station, after a successful 33-month mission to measure clouds and tiny atmospheric particles that play key roles in Earth's climate and weather.

NASA sees sees Ockhi's Rain reach India's Western coast

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM Core Observatory satellite passed over western India on Dec. 5, 2017 at (12:21 a.m. EST) 0521 UTC and found that the remnants of former Tropical Cyclone Ockhi has reached the coast.

NASA's SuperTIGER balloon flies again to study heavy cosmic particles

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A science team in Antarctica is preparing to fly SuperTIGER, a balloon-borne instrument designed to collect heavy high-energy particles from beyond the solar system that constantly bombard Earth's atmosphere.

NASA Aerosol Simulation

A fascinating simulation created by a team of scientists at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. The animation approximates the movements of smoke, sea salt, and dust as they traveled around the globe due to storms and wind currents in 2017. Original video here.

NASA telescope studies quirky comet 45P

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) When comet 45P zipped past Earth early in 2017, researchers observing from NASA's Infrared Telescope Facility, or IRTF, in Hawai'i gave the long-time trekker a thorough astronomical checkup. The results help fill in crucial details about ices in Jupiter-family comets and reveal that quirky 45P doesn't quite match any comet studied so far.

WASP-18b has smothering stratosphere without water

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A NASA-led team has found evidence that the oversized planet WASP-18b is wrapped in a smothering stratosphere loaded with carbon monoxide and devoid of water. The findings come from a new analysis of observations made by the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes.

Watch how smoke, dust, and salt circulate in the Earth’s atmosphere

last weekHumor / odd :

Using a combination of satellite data and mathematical weather models, scientists at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center made this simulation that shows how aerosols like dust, smoke, and salt were circulated in the atmosphere during the 2017 hurricane season. Show More Summary
