New NASA Tech to Bring Internet to the Whole Solar System

NASA has just deployed the first test of a long-in-the-works technology that will provide solar system-wide internet. The technology–called Delay/Disrupt Tolerant Networking (DTN)–behaves somewhat like a terrestrial wifi system, and will enable better data transmission between the ISS and ground stations on Earth, with robotic spacecraft in...

Rotating ring of complex organic molecules discovered around newborn star

Astronomers have long known that organic molecules form in diffuse gas clouds floating between stars. It is thought that as the Solar System formed 4.6 billion years ago, some of these organic molecules were transported from interstellar space to the planet forming disk. Show More Summary

Shot by New Horizons on its way out of town. [NASA, via] This picture provides a vivid illustration that Jupiter's atmosphere has more color contrast than any other atmosphere in the solar system, including Earth's. Data obtained from these and other New Horizons images taken during the encounter will provide valuable insight into the processes occurring on this gas giant.
