Though they focus on the star at the center of our solar system, three of NASA’s Sun-watching spacecraft have captured unique views of the planets throughout the last several months.
NASA is funding 30 awards across the U.S to implement the next phase of Science Activation—a community-based approach to connect NASA science with learners of all ages. The selected proposals will broaden participation of underrepresented and underserved learners, as well as expand connections with... Read More
NASA’s Roman Space Telescope will conduct a microlensing survey to reveal worlds that are similar to the planets in our solar system. Now, a new study shows that the same survey will also unveil more extreme planets and planet-like bodies in the heart of the galaxy, thanks to their gravitational... Read More
Precise measurements reveal that the exoplanets have remarkably similar densities, which provides clues about their composition.
Soon, through the power of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), astronomers will look back to that raucous, early period in a deep-sky survey to trace the formation and evolution of the first galaxies.
Scientists have combined NASA data and cutting-edge image processing to gain new insight into the solar structures that create the Sun’s flow of high-speed solar wind, detailed in new research published today in The Astrophysical Journal.
Saffire-V tests larger, more dynamic fires in space.
In 2021, the US Postal Service is showcasing the Sun’s many faces with a series of Sun Science forever stamps that show images of solar activity captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO.
NASA is hosting a media briefing on Wednesday, Jan. 27, at 4:30 p.m. EST to discuss the upcoming landing of the Mars 2020 Perseverance rover.

An expanding research partnership between the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will help develop new ways of growing food on Earth and in space.
Not all appears as it would seem in the Whirlpool galaxy. SOFIA shows that the magnetic fields in the outer arms do not follow the galaxy's spiral shape.
New research shows that magnetic fields are contributing to the expulsion of material from the Cigar galaxy, or Messier 82, a well-known example of a starburst galaxy with a distinctive, elongated shape.
Earth’s global average surface temperature in 2020 tied with 2016 as the warmest year on record, according to an analysis by NASA.
NASA and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Poland have agreed to cooperate on a NASA heliophysics mission, the Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe (IMAP).
