Federal authorities to investigate death of infant at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama
The NASA Marshall Space Flight Center was the scene of an unthinkable and horrific tragedy on Wednesday afternoon; that’s when an employee’s 7-month-old infant was found dead in a parked vehicle on the property. According to a NASA spokesperson, the 7-month-year-old child of an as-yet unidentified NASA employee became the latest in a string of... Show More Summary
"The appearance of this ice cloud goes against everything we know about the way clouds form on Titan," said Carrie Anderson, a CIRS co-investigator at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and lead author of the study. The...
The process of 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, holds promise for advancements in almost every industry, including even rocket science. Engineers from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, used neutrons recently to help understand the potential benefit of additive manufactured rocket engine components.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Satellite data from NASA revealed that powerful storms in Super Typhoon Meranti were generating almost a foot or almost 300 millimeters of rainfall per hour. The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite measured the heavy rainfall on one side of the Category 5 super typhoon.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The newest tropical depression in the northwestern Pacific Ocean formed Sunday, Sept. 11 far to the east of the big island of Japan. Tropical Depression 17W didn't have a long life, however, as the final warning on the system was issued 12 hours later. By Sept. 12 the storm lost its tropical characteristics.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) For the first time, scientists have directly mapped Earth's fluctuating magnetic field and resulting electrical currents to aurora, thanks to northern lights observations from NASA's THEMIS mission...
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Depression 18W formed west of Guam and strengthened into a tropical storm. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite saw the storm heading into the Philippine Sea early on Sept. 12.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The sixteenth tropical depression of the Eastern Pacific Ocean Hurricane Season formed on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 11 p.m. EDT and became a hurricane named Orlene early on Sept. 12. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured an image of the strengthening storm.
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.
"It's amazing, shocking," said Glyn Collinson, a scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center on June 20th. "We never dreamt an electric wind could be so powerful that it can suck oxygen right out of an atmosphere into space. Thi...
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Depression 16W in the northwestern Pacific Ocean was spotted by the Terra satellite on Sept. 08, 2016. The storm is currently moving northwest toward the island of Guam at 8 mph.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Satellite imagery showed that Post-Tropical Cyclone Hermine was just a swirl of clouds with no rainfall off the coast of southeastern Massachusetts on Thursday, Sept. 8. Just two days earlier, the GPM satellite saw that Hermine was still generating some rainfall.
A team from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, has been selected to develop a new, third-generation facility science instrument for the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, SOFIA.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA and NOAA satellites continue to provide data as Post-Tropical Cyclone Hermine continues to linger south of Long Island, New York. The winds from the storm continue to affect surf from the Mid-Atlantic to Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Terra satellite and a NASA animation of imagery from NOAA's GOES-West satellite provided views of Hurricane Newton as it neared landfall in Baja California, Mexico, today, Sept. 6.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Operation IceBridge, NASA's airborne survey of polar ice, is flying in Greenland for the second time this year, to observe the impact of the summer melt season on the ice sheet.
A new crew of astronauts to be sent to the International Space Station is flight ready, Yu.A. Gagarin Research and Test Cosmonaut Training Center said on Friday.
