NASA finds heavy rain in new Tropical Cyclone Hola near Vanuatu

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA obtained rainfall data on newly formed Tropical Cyclone Hola as it triggered warnings in Vanuatu in the South Pacific Ocean.On March 6, 2018 at 3:25 a.m. EST (0825 UTC) the GPM or Global Precipitation Measurement mission core observatory satellite flew above a forming tropical cyclone in the southern Pacific Ocean just east of Vanuatu.

Weather satellites aid search and rescue capabilities

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The same satellites that identify severe weather can help save you from it. NOAA's GOES series satellites carry a payload supported by NASA's Search and Rescue (SAR) office, which researches and develops...Show More Summary

Hubble finds huge system of dusty material enveloping the young star HR 4796A

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Astronomers have used NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to uncover a vast, complex dust structure, about 150 billion miles across, enveloping the young star HR 4796A.

NASA examines Tropical Cyclone Dumazile's flooding rainfall

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical cyclone Dumazile formed east of Madagascar on March 3, 2018 and brought soaking rainfall to Madagascar. The GPM or Global Precipitation Measurement mission core satellite obtained a look at the soaking Dumazile gave the island nation.

NASA sees powerful storms around Dumazile's eye

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) When NASA's Aqua satellite and NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellites passed over Tropical Cyclone Dumazile in the Southern Indian Ocean it measured cloud top temperatures and saw its eye circled by a ring of strong thunderstorms.

NASA's Aqua satellite finds Dumazile sheared

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Vertical wind shear is an adversary of tropical cyclones because it can blow them apart, and NASA's Aqua satellite found wind shear pushing Tropical Cyclone Dumazile's clouds south of its center.

NASA's GPM observes Arkansas and Tennessee flooding downpours

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite provided forecasters with a look at the rainfall rates in storms drenching Arkansas and Tennessee.

NASA finds a large amount of water in an exoplanet's atmosphere

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Much like detectives study fingerprints to identify the culprit, scientists used NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes to find the 'fingerprints' of water in the atmosphere of a hot, bloated, Saturn-mass exoplanet some 700 light-years away.

Sounding rocket mission will trace auroral winds

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) What are the energy impacts of the northern lights? A new sounding rocket mission will measure winds in the the Earth's Polar Cusp to find out.

An 'insider's look' at Tropical Cyclone 11S from NASA's Aqua Satellite

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Infrared imagery provides valuable temperature data in storms, and when NASA's Aqua satellite flew over newly developed Tropical Cyclone 11S in the Southern Indian Ocean, its gathered that data allowing forecasters to see where the strongest storms were located within.

NASA looks at Midwest rain and melting snow that contributed to flooding

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Much of the US Midwest has received above normal precipitation this winter. A NASA rainfall analysis provided a look at the precipitation that contributed to current flooding.

NASA's SDO Reveals How Magnetic Cage on the Sun Stopped Solar Eruption

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A dramatic magnetic power struggle at the Sun's surface lies at the heart of solar eruptions, new research using NASA data shows.

On second thought, the Moon's water may be widespread and immobile

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A new analysis of data from two lunar missions finds evidence that the Moon's water is widely distributed across the surface and is not confined to a particular region or type of terrain.

Improved Hubble yardstick gives fresh evidence for new physics in the universe

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Astronomers have used NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to make the most precise measurements of the expansion rate of the universe since it was first calculated nearly a century ago. Intriguingly, the results are forcing astronomers to consider that they may be seeing evidence of something unexpected at work in the universe.

New partnership aids sustainable growth with Earth observations

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA and the nonprofit Conservation International are partnering to map land and water ecosystems around the world to provide decision makers with new tools for assessing natural resources for planning and management.

How spacecraft testing enabled bone marrow research

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) In the 1970s, a NASA employee stepped up to a challenge posed by the National Institutes of Health or NIH: to freeze bone marrow.

NASA sees ex-Tropical Cyclone Gita affecting New Zealand

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Terra satellite passed over the Southern Pacific Ocean and saw the low pressure area previously known as Tropical Cyclone Gita, affecting New Zealand.

Pulsating Aurora mysteries uncovered with help from NASA's THEMIS mission

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The precise mechanism driving pulsating auroras, long unknown, has now been identified with help from NASA's THEMIS mission.

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope to reveal secrets of the Red Planet

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's James Webb Space Telescope will study Mars to learn more about the planet's transition from wet to dry, and what that means about its past and present habitability.

NASA sees Tropical Storm 10S form along Western Australia Coast

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) After days of lingering off the west Kimberley coast of Western Australia as a slowly organizing low pressure area, Tropical Storm 10S has formed about 50 miles west of Broome, Australia.
