Taking a spin on plasma space tornadoes with NASA observations

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) New NASA mission results show that tornado-like swirls of space plasma create tumultuous boundaries in the near-Earth environment, letting dangerous high-energy particles slip into near Earth space...

NASA detects solar flare pulses at sun and Earth

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Two recent studies show how solar flares exhibit pulses or oscillations in the amount of energy being sent out. Such research provides new insights on the origins of these massive solar flares and the space weather they produce. Show More Summary

FIREBIRD II and NASA mission locate whistling space electrons' origins

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) New research using data from NASA's Van Allen Probes mission and FIREBIRD II CubeSat has shown that plasma waves in space are likely responsible for accelerating high-energy particles into Earth's atmosphere.

NASA measures Haikui's remnant rainfall over southern Vietnam

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite provided data on rainfall over Vietnam from the remnants of former Tropical Storm Haikui.

NASA Mars 2020: Watch the First Supersonic Parachute Test Ahead of Red Planet Mission

Scientists at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center called the flight a “breathtaking ride.”

Proposed NASA mission would investigate where space weather begins

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A NASA team is advancing a mission to reveal unprecedented details about solar flares, powerful eruptions that explode with enough energy that each one could power all of Earth for 16,000 years, and which -- when extreme -- can interfere with radio communications and satellites near Earth.

New NASA mission concept aimed at studying why planets lose their atmospheres

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A team of NASA scientists want to use Earth as a laboratory to understand how planets lose their atmospheres and has proposed a mission that the agency recently selected as one of five for further consideration as a possible NASA Explorer mission.

NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP finds Tropical Depression Haikui dissipating

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The final warning was issued on Tropical depression Haiku on Nov. 12 as it was dissipating due to strong vertical wind shear. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the storm as it was fading.

Hitomi mission glimpses cosmic 'recipe' for the nearby universe

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Thanks to an in-depth look into the composition of gas in the Perseus galaxy cluster, Japan's Hitomi mission has given scientists new insights into the stellar explosions that formed its chemical elements.

Hubble shows light echo expanding from exploded star

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Light from a supernova explosion in the nearby starburst galaxy M82 is reverberating off a huge dust cloud in interstellar space.

NASA CubeSat to test miniaturized weather satellite technology

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The NASA-funded CubeSat, called Microwave Radiometer Technology Acceleration (MiRaTA), will be launched into Earth's orbit from the rocket carrying the next big US weather satellite (NOAA's JPSS-1) into space. Show More Summary

NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP sees Tropical Depression Haikui form

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the Philippines and saw the thirtieth tropical cyclone of the northwestern Pacific Ocean typhoon season form.

NASA team studies CubeSat mission to measure water on the moon

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A team of NASA scientists wants to draw a more complete picture of where water exists on the Moon and whether it migrates across the lunar surface, including in the permanently shadowed regions that haven't seen sunlight in perhaps a billion years or more.

Parker Solar Probe comes to NASA Goddard for testing

On Monday, Nov. 6, 2017, NASA's Parker Solar Probe spacecraft arrived at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, for environmental tests. During the spacecraft's stay at Goddard, engineers and technicians will simulate extreme temperatures and other physical stresses that the spacecraft will be subjected to during its historic mission to the Sun.

NASA's IMERG adds up heavy rainfall from Tropical Storm Damrey

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Using a fleet of satellites, NASA calculated the heavy rainfall in Vietnam left by Typhoon Damrey at the beginning of November.

NASA eyes a comma-shaped Tropical Storm Rina

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The NASA-NOAA Suomi NPP satellite passed over Tropical Storm Rina and found that the storm has taken on a tight comma-cloud appearance.

NASA sees the end of Tropical Depression 29W

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Born from the remnants of Tropical Cyclone 28W, Tropical Depression 29W only lasted a few days before it began rapidly decaying. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite found the disorganized storm weakening over the Malay Peninsula.

NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP finds disorganized storms in Tropical Depression 29W

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite measured cloud top temperatures as it passed over Tropical Depression 29W and found some disorganized storms.

NASA tracking Atlantic's Tropical storm Rina

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite has been providing forecasters with imagery of Tropical Storm Rina as it moves north through the Central Atlantic Ocean.
