NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is developing a plan to attach over 200 sensors to its system of satellites in order to detect wildfires quickly from space. The new system will revolutionize the way responders receive information about fires. Produced by Justin Gmoser Follow BI Video: On Facebook Join the conversation about this story »
A new theory from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, suggests that dark matter may interact with planets, forming long filaments or "hairs" of invisible particles. Studying these hairs could be scientifically...Show More Summary
The outgoing director of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory on Nov. 19 floated the idea of sending a small scout helicopter to the red planet along with the Mars 2020 sample caching rover headed there in 2020.“It’s not approved for that...Show More Summary
After decades with the Voyager program, NASA engineer Larry Zottarelli is retiring. That means there’s a job opening at the storied Jet Propulsion Laboratory, but it won’t be the right fit for just […]
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is out with a study predicting a 99.9% chance of an earthquake within the next two and a half years.
Are you ready for the big one, Southern California? According to a new study from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, there's a 99.9 percent chance the Los Angeles area will experience an earthquake of 5.0 magnitude or greater in the next 2 1/2 years. Show More Summary
According to scientists with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, a new study indicates that the Los Angeles Area has a 99.9 percent chance of experiencing an earthquake magntitude 5.0 or greater in the next three years. Results of the study titled, “Potential for a large earthquake near Los Angeles inferred from the 2014 La... Show More Summary
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is out with a study predicting that Los Angeles has a 99.9% chance of experiencing an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.0 or greater within the next two and a half years. "There’s enough energy stored to produce about a magnitude 6.1 to...
If scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena are correct, a moderately-sized earthquake is expected within the next two-and-a-half years. As CBS LA reports, JPL experts predict a possible 5.0 magnitude quake in Los Angeles, but say it very well could be stronger. Show More Summary
It’s not often you see the United States Geological Survey and Jet Propulsion Laboratories get into a smackdown over science, but that’s just what happened thanks to a new set of earthquake predictions for southern California. Read more...
When fictional astronaut Mark Watney becomes stranded alone on the Red Planet in the novel and film "The Martian," people and technology from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, play important roles in his castaway adventure. Acclaimed for its...
"We've been following a trail of clues on Enceladus for 10 years now," said Bonnie Buratti, a Cassini science team member and icy moons expert at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. "The amount of activity on and...
