Alien Object from a Distant Star System Invades Our Solar System --"Like Nothing We've Ever Seen"

"What a fascinating discovery this is!" said Paul Chodas, manager of the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. "It's a strange visitor from a faraway star system, shaped like nothing we've ever seen in our own...        

NASA Scientists Debate Alien Planet 55 Cancri e --"Does It Have an Atmosphere Like Earth & Venus?"

"If there is lava on this planet, it would need to cover the entire surface," said Renyu Hu, astronomer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and co-author of a study published in The Astronomical Journal. "But the lava would be hidden...        

NASA develops tool that shows how much sea level rise coastal cities can expect based on location and degree of ice melt

(Phys.org)—A trio of researchers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has developed a new tool to map sea level rise for major cities depending on which parts of the Earth's ice sheets melt and by how much. In their paper published on the open access site Science Advances, Eric Larour, Erik Ivins and Surendra Adhikari describe the tool and the ways it can be used.

NASA damage map aids California wildfire response

The Advanced Rapid Imaging and Analysis (ARIA) team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and at Caltech, both in Pasadena, California, created a damage proxy map depicting areas in Northern California that are likely damaged as a result of the region's current outbreak of wildfires. The map has been provided to various agencies to aid in the wildfire response.

"Scary Data" --NASA's Sentinel 6A Mission Monitors Rising Sea Levels Reshaping the Surface of Our Planet (WATCH Video)

"As human-caused global warming drives sea levels higher and higher, we are literally reshaping the surface of our planet," said Josh Willis, NASA project scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. "These missions tell us how much and...        

Seven Times the Supreme Court Got Its Facts Wrong

In 2007, a group of California Institute of Technology scientists working at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory filed suit against the venerated space agency. Many of the scientists had worked on NASA missions and research for years as outside employees. As part of efforts to tighten security measures after 9/11, in 2004 NASA started requiring outside […]

Saturn ruled this scientist's life for 40 years — here's why she's begging NASA to go back after Cassini's death

Linda Spilker began researching Saturn at NASA's Jet Propulsion laboratory four decades ago. She worked on the Voyager mission and was on the Cassini mission to Saturn, which recently ended, from start to finish. Because there's a chance...Show More Summary

How soon can NASA go back to Saturn? This is what has to happen first

Cassini team members at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory hugged and shed tears in the dark hours of Friday morning after hearing the doomed spacecraft’s final signals as it dove into Saturn’s atmosphere. But officials made it clear: While it may have been the end for Cassini, it’s not the end for...

As NASA’s Cassini mission flames out over Saturn, scientists mark bittersweet end of mission

In the dark of the early morning, planetary scientist Andy Ingersoll stood alone and slightly stooped at a coffee cart at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. More than 900 million miles across the solar system, the 2-ton Cassini spacecraft that he worked on for more than 20 years was being ripped...

"Changing the Paradigm of Where We Look for Life" --WATCH NASA Mission Control Live: Epic Discoveries & Fiery Death of Cassini's 13-Year Mission (Today's 'Galaxy' Stream)

Mission controllers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory sent a final command Friday morning to the Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn, putting the craft into a suicidal dive, plunging into the ringed planet's atmosphere. Flight Director Julie Webster announced "loss of signal"...        

Cassini Is Gone And I'm Not Crying You're Crying

After a 20-year sojourn in the final frontier, at approximately 10.00PM AEST tonight, NASA's Jet Propulsion laboratory lost contact with the Cassini spacecraft, which had plunged into Saturn's atmosphere about an hour and a half prior, ending its 13-year exploration of the Saturn system.

Watch live as NASA's Cassini spacecraft says goodbye from 900 million miles away

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft will plunge into Saturn’s atmosphere early Friday morning, vaporizing like a small meteor in the Saturnian sky. Here on Earth, mission leaders will gather at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge to await the signal that their beloved spacecraft is no more...

Will humans wreck life on Earth before escaping to Mars and Saturn’s moons?

On Friday morning, scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena will watch their Cassini spacecraft take a suicide dive into Saturn’s atmosphere, thus ending two decades of spectacular exploration of the giant planet and its multiple moons. Cassini is about to run out of fuel and, though...

Harvey Flooding Was So Bad Houston Sunk by 2cm

How serious was the flooding in Houston in the wake of Hurricane Harvey? A geophysicist from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory says the entire metro area is now 2 centimeters lower due to the weight of the water. The Houston Chronicle reports Chris Milliner used data from the Nevada Geodetic Laboratory...

Investigators find direct evidence of sea level 'fingerprints'

Researchers from the University of California, Irvine and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory have reported the first observation of sea level "fingerprints," tell-tale differences in sea level rise around the world in response to changes in continental water and ice sheet mass. Show More Summary
