November is shaping up to be a busy month for Orion and Space Launch System hardware. A human-rated flight engine is in the test stand at Stennis Space Center, and a version of Orion's service module is getting ready to cross the Atlantic.

Antarctica Is Gaining Ice, Creating a Climate Change Mystery

A new NASA study found that Antarctica is gaining more ice than it’s losing. But that isn’t a sign that climate change is slowing down.A team of researchers from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the University of Maryland in College Park and Maryland-based engineering firm Sigma Space Corp

Ozone hole worse than in recent years – due to colder than normal stratosphere in Antarctica

A couple of days ago we ran a piece at WUWT: Did We Really Save the Ozone Layer? In light of this press release, the question is worth pondering again. From the NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER Annual Antarctic ozone hole larger and formed later in 2015 The 2015 Antarctic ozone hole area was larger and formed later…

NASA: current El Niño ‘appears likely to equal the event of 1997-98’

From NASA Goddard and JPL: NASA studying 2015 El Niño event as never before NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER Every two to seven years, an unusually warm pool of water — sometimes two to three degrees Celsius higher than normal develops across the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean to create a natural short-term climate change event. This…

NASA/Hubble: "Jupiter's Great Red Spot is Morphing" (VIDEO)

"Every time we look at Jupiter, we get tantalizing hints that something really exciting is going on," said Amy Simon, a planetary scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. "This time is no exception." Scientists using NASA's...

High-resolution maps and spinning globes (rendered in the 4k Ultra HD format) are the first products to come […]

Total Eclipse of the Server: NASA's Live Stream of Super Blood Moon Fails

Several live internet transmissions of the hotly-anticipated 'super blood moon', a rare astronomical event, ran into difficulties on Sunday, most notably the live broadcast from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center.

Obvious science: NASA finds vegetation essential for limiting city warming effects

From the “department of limiting UHI” and NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER   Cities are well known hot spots – literally. The urban heat island effect has long been observed to raise the temperature of big cities by 1 to 3°C (1.8 to 5.4°F), a rise that is due to the presence of asphalt, concrete, buildings, and…

First Manned Launch From Russia's Vostochny Cosmodrome Delayed Until 2025

Russia’s space agency Roscosmos is postponing the first manned space flight from the new Vostochny Space Center from 2018 until 2025, local media reported Monday citing the federal space program.

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center / CC BY 2.0 The rate at which vast areas of California’s Central Valley are sinking has accelerated as massive amounts of groundwater are pumped out to meet water shortages during the region’s historic...Show More Summary

Claim: NASA simulation indicates ancient flood volcanoes could have altered climate

From NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER and the “maybe they should have checked with Willis first” department comes this modeling claim: In June, 1991, Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines exploded, blasting millions of tons of ash and gas over 20 miles high – deep into the stratosphere, a stable layer of our atmosphere above most of…

Satellite analysis of Super Typhoon Soudelor moving toward Taiwan

From NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER Heavy rain, towering thunderstorms, and a large area are things that NASA satellites observed as Typhoon Soudelor moves toward Taiwan on August 5, 2015. A 3D video analysis follows. NASA’s Terra satellite passed over Soudelor on August 5, 2015 at 01:45 UTC and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument…

Superstar Eta Carinae’s Periastron

NASA's Amazing Comet Hunter --"Nobody Dreamed We'd Approach 200 a Year"

"SOHO has a view of about 12 and a half million miles beyond the sun," said Joe Gurman, the mission scientist for SOHO at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. "So we expected it might from time to...

California ‘rain debt’ equal to average full year of precipitation

From NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER A new NASA study has concluded California accumulated a debt of about 20 inches of precipitation between 2012 and 2015 — the average amount expected to fall in the state in a single year. The deficit was driven primarily by a lack of air currents moving inland from the Pacific…
