NASA team studies middle-aged sun by tracking motion of Mercury

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Like the waistband of a couch potato in midlife, the orbits of planets in our solar system are expanding. It happens because the Sun's gravitational grip gradually weakens as our star ages and loses mass. Show More Summary

NASA sees Tropical Cyclone Berguitta soaking Mauritius and Reunion Island

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA found heavy rainfall in Tropical Cyclone Berguitta as it closed in on Mauritius and Reunion Islands. On Jan. 18, NASA's Terra satellite captured an early morning visible image that showed the center of the storm just south of Mauritius and the storm blanketing both islands. Show More Summary

Hubble weighs in on mass of 3 million billion suns

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) In 2014, astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope found that this enormous galaxy cluster contains the mass of a staggering three million billion suns. Known officially as ACT-CLJ0102-4915, it is the largest, hottest, and brightest X-ray galaxy cluster ever discovered in the distant universe.

NASA sees Tropical Cyclone Berguitta heading toward Mauritius

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Terra satellite passed over the Southern Indian Ocean and saw Tropical Cyclone Berguitta moving southwest toward the island of Mauritius. A tropical cyclone alert class 2 is in effect for Mauritius.

Tropical Cyclone Joyce makes landfall on Australia's Pilbara Coast

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NOAA's JPSS-1 satellite provided a visible image of the tropical storm after it made landfall along the Pilbara Coast in the northwestern part of Western Australia.

American Space Museum in Titusville, Florida

This small space museum, located not far the better-known Kennedy Space Center, tells the more personal side of the history of the American space program, from the launches of Dr. Robert Goddard to early unmanned flight, through projects...Show More Summary

NASA calculated heavy rainfall leading to California mudslides

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Winter rains falling on recently burned ground triggered deadly mudslides in Santa Barbara County, California on Jan. 9. NASA calculated the amount of rain fall between Jan. 8 and 10, 2018 and calculated the potential for landslides.

No planets needed: NASA study shows disk patterns can self-generate

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A new NASA study shows rings, arcs and spirals in disks around stars may not be caused by planets. They may self-generate.

Hubble finds substellar objects in the Orion Nebula

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered the largest known population of brown dwarfs sprinkled among newborn stars in the Orion Nebula.

NASA team first to demonstrate X-ray navigation in space

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) In a technology first, a team of NASA engineers has demonstrated fully autonomous X-ray navigation in space -- a capability that could revolutionize NASA's ability in the future to pilot robotic spacecraft to the far reaches of the solar system and beyond.

NASA's newly renamed Swift Mission spies a comet slowdown

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Swift spacecraft, now renamed the Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory after the mission's late principal investigator, has detected the most dramatic change in a comet's rotation ever seen.

Webb Telescope's Houston highlights

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) With NASA's James Webb Space Telescope's approximately nine-month stay in Texas coming to an end, now is a good time to reflect on the memories it made in the Lone Star State. NASA has created a timelapse video that chronicles Webb's time at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.

NASA sees Tropical Cyclone 5 form near northwestern Australia's coast

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Depression 5S was consolidating just offshore Cape Leveque, Western Australia when NASA's Aqua satellite gathered temperature data that showed the strongest part of the depression remained over water.

NASA's Aqua satellite finds wind shear hitting Tropical Storm Irving

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the Southern Indian Ocean and obtained a visible light image of Tropical Storm Irving that showed vertical wind shear was pushing storms away from its center.

NASA sees Tropical Cyclone Ava fizzling south of Madagascar

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the Southern Indian Ocean and captured a visible image of Tropical Cyclone Ava as it continued to move away from southeastern Madagascar and weaken.

Tropical Cyclone Irving appears elongated in NASA imagery

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Cyclone Irving and found wind shear was stretching the storm out.

AK-launched rockets to study x-rays, create polar mesospheric cloud

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Between Jan. 15-31, 2018, scientists will launch four rockets to measure x-ray emissions from space and determine how large quantities of water could affect the upper atmosphere and form Polar Mesospheric clouds, or PMCs.

Tropical Cyclone Ava moving away from Madagascar

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Terra satellite passed over Tropical Cyclone Ava as it continued moving away from the island nation of Madagascar. Ava was located in the Southern Indian Ocean, off the southeastern coast of the country.

Powerful Tropical Cyclone Irving examined with GPM

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) On Jan. 8, Tropical Cyclone Irving was hurricane-force in the Southern Indian Ocean. The Global Precipitation Measurement Mission or GPM core satellite passed overhead and measured cloud heights and rainfall rates in the powerful storm.

NASA catches Tropical Cyclone Ava's landfall on Madagascar's coast

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over Tropical Cyclone Ava as it made landfall along the coast of northeastern Madagascar.
