NASA Takes an Unprecedented Look at a Week in the Life of Rain and Snow

3 weeks agoHumor / odd : Laughing Squid

In a recent video by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the agency takes an unprecedented look at a week in the life of rain and snow. The video explains how NASA uses data from a number of satellites currently in orbit to give both up-to-the-minute and long-term information about rain and snow patterns around the globe.

NASA’s Hubble observations suggest underground ocean on Jupiter’s largest moon

From NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center – NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has the best evidence yet for an underground saltwater ocean on Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon. The subterranean ocean is thought to have more water than all the water on Earth’s surface. Identifying liquid water is crucial in the search for habitable worlds beyond Earth and…

Violent Solar Flares May Have Paved the Way for Life On Earth (And Elsewhere)

“Solar flares represent the most violent eruptions in the Solar System,” said Vladimir Airapetian, senior astrophysicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and a research professor at George Mason and Capella Universities. “They release energy comparable to a couple billion...
