The Lights Of The World

What our holiday lights means for NASA: Scientists at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland and Yale University in Connecticut used satellite imagery to track light patterns in 1,200 cities over two and a half years. They found that increased light correlated perfectly with the holiday seasons for Ramadan in the Middle East, as […]

Rare Midsize Black Hole

NASA: Astronomers from the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) and NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center have uncovered rhythmic pulsations from a rare breed of black hole in archival data from NASA’s Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) satellite. The signals provide compelling evidence that the object, known as M82 X-1, is one of only a...Read More

Ocean News: New Arctic Shipping Route Proposed, East Coast Sees Surge in Coastal Flooding Events, and More

Arctic Ocean sea ice. (Photo: NASA Goddard Space Flight Center / Flickr Creative Commons) - A new analysis focusing on sea level rise found that coastal flooding has dramatically increased in frequency along the Eastern Seaboard in recent years. The analysis found that flood levels met or exceeded NOAA’s flood thresholds more than 20 days a year in six coastal cities. Reuters

This Is How Light Travels Through The Layers Of The Sun

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center released this pretty neat animation back in 2012, which shows how light streaming up from inside the sun through its many layers. Did you know that the light that shines on our Earth takes some 40,000 years to travel through the sun’s layers? I did not, and now I am amazed. More »      

Two NASA Satellites see System 92b headed north in Bay of Bengal

At NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, TRMM's Precipitation Radar data were also used to construct a simulated 3-D view of 92B's rainfall structure looking toward the east from India. TRMM PR pulled away a veil...Show More Summary

NASA sees developing tropical cyclone in Bay of Bengal

At NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, TRMM PR data were used to create a 3-D image that showed a simulated view of the tropical disturbance's rainfall structure. In the 3-D image, tall storms were shown reaching heights of over 14km (about 8.7 miles) and returning reflectivity values of over 52dBZ to the satellite. read more
