Created in collaboration with Shane Myrbeck of Arup and the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, StudioKCA’s NASA Orbit Pavilion debuted at the World Science Festival at New York University in the summer of 2015. The Huntington invited StudioKCA...Show More Summary
A critical moment in NASA’S Juno mission has been postponed while engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory attempt to sort out a mysterious engine issue. If the problem is not resolved quickly, it could reduce the amount of high-quality data the Jupiter-orbiting probe is able to collect during its scientific mission. Read more...
Rich Terrile, a scientist with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said research shows that consciousness, a product of the brain, can be reproduced. "Soon there will be nothing technical standing in the way to making machines that have their own consciousness,"...
Mission managers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, are evaluating an alternate way to collect and process science data from the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES) instrument on NASA's Aura spacecraft following the age-related failure of a critical instrument component.

(University of Hawaii at Manoa) New research from scientists at University of Hawai'i at M?noa, Old Dominion University, and the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory shows that the longest and highest-quality records of historical ocean water levels may underestimate the amount of global average sea level rise that occurred during the 20th century.
The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission is about to come to an end, and you can watch for the final signal live, right here. NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory will be streaming live from ESA’s European Space Operations Center in Darmstadt, Germany, where scientists from around the world...
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, has issued a request for proposal (RFP) seeking design, development and build of the robotic spacecraft that will capture a multi-ton asteroid boulder from deep space during the first segment of the agency's Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM).

Earth has a companion other than the moon, according to scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, Calif., who identified a previously unseen asteroid that circles around our planet as it follows its own orbit around the sun. 20 Sep 2016
For the past 15 years, the big data techniques pioneered by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, have been revolutionizing biomedical research. On Sept. 6, 2016, JPL and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), partShow More Summary
Mission managers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, and NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Alabama, are assessing two power system-related anomalies affecting the operation of NASA's ISS-RapidScat instrument aboard the International Space Station. RapidScat measures surface wind speeds and directions over the ocean.
Earlier this week NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory released a set of 14 stunning space tourism posters. Now NASA is following that up with another set of posters, only this time they are all […]
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has just released these 14 stunning posters that showcase some of the finest travel destinations from our solar system, and beyond. They’re appropriately retro-styled, as the aesthetic is perhaps from […]

What’s a good gift for a martian rover who’s just turning four? Water, obviously. Barring that, however, a fun little mobile game will do. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory enlisted the skills of GAMEE to develop Mars Rover, an adorable little side scroller created in honor of Curiosity’s fourth year on the red planet. It’s a simple little game for iOS, Android… Read More
Curiosity may be an older dog (the rover landed on Mars in 2012), but it’s still picking up new tricks. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory recently revealed (via Verge) that the robot can now pick its own targets when choosing rocks to scan with its laser spectrometer, a task formerly reserved for remote operation by scientists back here on Earth.

First discovered by University of Hawaii’s Pan-STARRS 1 telescope on April 27, 2016, Earth’s new moon, or “mini moon” has been officially confirmed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Officially named “2016 HO3,” the newly discovered asteroid is dubbed a “mini moon” because it not only orbits the Sun–it orbits Earth, as well. Show More Summary
“The fungi collected at the accident site had more melanin than the fungi collected from outside the exclusion zone,” says Kasthuri Venkateswaran, a senior research scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “This means the fungi have adapted to the radiation...
