(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Satellites are keeping an eye on the US and NOAA's GOES East satellite showed two storm systems for pre-Thanksgiving travelers on Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2017. One system was exiting the northeastern US while the other was affecting the Pacific Northwest.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) As intense rain storms moved into Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Nov. 21, NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement Mission or GPM core satellite analyzed the severe storms.
A stunning new visualization made by NASA Goddard shows how smoke, sea salt, and dust moved through the atmosphere during the 2017 hurricane season. The supercomputer-created simulation shows how atmospheric particles interact with storms...Show More Summary
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The vault-like, 40-foot diameter, 40-ton door of Chamber A at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston was unsealed on Nov. 18, signaling the end of cryogenic testing for NASA's James Webb Space Telescope.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Depression Kirogi made landfall in southeastern Vietnam on Nov. 19 and NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the storm as it was dissipating over land.
The destructive dance of dust and salt unleashed by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, José, and María has been visualized by scientists at NASA by combining satellite data with the latest computer model simulations. It shows how the powerfulShow More Summary
A fascinatingly informative satellite simulation of the intense 2017 Atlantic hurricane season shows how meteorologists at the NASA Goddard Space Center employ the use of tiny aerosols such as evaporated sea salt, Saharan Desert dust and fire smoke to visualize how a storm is moving over the ocean and track where it will probably make...
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) New NASA mission results show that tornado-like swirls of space plasma create tumultuous boundaries in the near-Earth environment, letting dangerous high-energy particles slip into near Earth space...
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Two recent studies show how solar flares exhibit pulses or oscillations in the amount of energy being sent out. Such research provides new insights on the origins of these massive solar flares and the space weather they produce. Show More Summary
As a young scientist, Tony del Genio of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York City met Clyde Tombaugh, the discoverer of Pluto.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) New research using data from NASA's Van Allen Probes mission and FIREBIRD II CubeSat has shown that plasma waves in space are likely responsible for accelerating high-energy particles into Earth's atmosphere.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite provided data on rainfall over Vietnam from the remnants of former Tropical Storm Haikui.
Scientists at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center called the flight a “breathtaking ride.”
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A NASA team is advancing a mission to reveal unprecedented details about solar flares, powerful eruptions that explode with enough energy that each one could power all of Earth for 16,000 years, and which -- when extreme -- can interfere with radio communications and satellites near Earth.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A team of NASA scientists want to use Earth as a laboratory to understand how planets lose their atmospheres and has proposed a mission that the agency recently selected as one of five for further consideration as a possible NASA Explorer mission.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The final warning was issued on Tropical depression Haiku on Nov. 12 as it was dissipating due to strong vertical wind shear. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the storm as it was fading.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Thanks to an in-depth look into the composition of gas in the Perseus galaxy cluster, Japan's Hitomi mission has given scientists new insights into the stellar explosions that formed its chemical elements.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Light from a supernova explosion in the nearby starburst galaxy M82 is reverberating off a huge dust cloud in interstellar space.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The NASA-funded CubeSat, called Microwave Radiometer Technology Acceleration (MiRaTA), will be launched into Earth's orbit from the rocket carrying the next big US weather satellite (NOAA's JPSS-1) into space. Show More Summary
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the Philippines and saw the thirtieth tropical cyclone of the northwestern Pacific Ocean typhoon season form.
