An ensemble cast is gathered in Ashley Shelby’s novel, “South Pole Station,” to witness the tragicomic results of a climate-change denier’s arrival.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft gazed toward high southern latitudes near Saturn's south pole to observe ghostly curtains of dancing light -- Saturn's southern auroras, or southern lights. These natural light displays at the planet's poles are created by charged particles raining...
Viking longboats on the Thames Oscar Adolf Wisting (6 June 1871 – 5 December 1936) was a Norwegian Naval officer and polar explorer. Together with Roald Amundsen he was the first person to reach both the North and South Poles. In later...Show More Summary
A large portion of an ice shelf has broken off from the Antarctic mainland, creating one of the world’s largest iceberg. Here’s a look at the threatened ice shelves and glaciers of the South Pole.
Right now, NASA's $1.1 billion Juno spacecraft is orbiting Jupiter. It's the second spacecraft in history to do so, and its orbit is taking it over Jupiter's north and south pole. During its latest pass over Jupiter's south pole, Juno snapped a series of images that reveal Jupiter like never before. Show More Summary
The Earth is a giant magnet, with a north and a south pole just like any magnet you've ever played with. But the Earth's magnetic field plays a vital role. It field helps to prevent powerful solar particles from destroying us. More »
Perseverence is directly related to he intensity with which we seek the particular reward. I’ve been reading the blog of a fellow AT hiker: I stopped, she kept going. I read her entries with the same attention that I’d give to trying a new food: minding the details of the food and the reaction of my senses. Show More Summary

Be sure to look where you’re walking on Mars. NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) last week stumbled upon a hole in the surface of the Red Planet’s South Pole. In the late summer […] The post NASA Discovers Mysterious Pit on Surface of Mars appeared first on Geek.com.
If only Donald Trump would put the North and South poles on the itinerary of his next international trip, maybe our grandchildren’s future would not look so bleak. The president could spend time with the penguins and polar bears and witness firsthand the existential predicament they face as more...
When reports of strange landscape features spotted on the Martian landscape come in, they usually come from the same old YouTube-based armchair sleuths. Now that Google Mars lets anyone with an internet connection pore over the Martian surface for rocks that look like ancient buildings, rocks that...
This observation from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show it is late summer in the Southern hemisphere, so the Sun is low in the sky and subtle topography is accentuated in orbital images.
For decades, scientists have wondered if frost persists inside the dark and cold craters of the Moon's poles. The recent discovery of unusually bright areas near the Moon's south pole suggests this very well may be the case. But as a potential source of water for aspiring lunar colonists, the quantity of this surface frost may come as a disappointment. More »
In 2010, I began work on a novel set in a time I was certain would be looked upon as one of the most embarrassing periods of the climate change “debate”: the George W. Bush era. The novel, set at South Pole Station and the West Antarctic...Show More Summary
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Scientists using data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, have identified bright areas in craters near the moon's south pole that are cold enough to have frost present on the surface.
Biking Eastern Europe and hiking the Alps are just two adventures in this season’s travel books. They’ll also visit Cuba, Gascony and the South Pole.
NASA’s Juno spacecraft is currently orbiting around Jupiter and taking some of the best photos and scientific measurements we’ve seen of the solar system’s largest planet. The photo above is of Jupiter’s south pole, gathering point for...Show More Summary

NASA's Juno probe entered orbit around Jupiter a year ago, and has been gathering data ever since. Now the space agency is releasing spectacular images, such as this one showing Juptier's south pole. It is a composite of several images, and shows multiple cyclones up to 600 miles in diameter raging around the pole. Show More Summary
