Q-PACE will capture video of thousands of gentle collisions between particles in microgravity to understand the earliest steps in planet formation.
Human-produced noise and light pollution is troublesome to our avian neighbors, according to new research from a team at California Polytechnic State University, published Nov. 11 in Nature.
Thailand is using NASA Earth observations to map, monitor, and forecast air quality.
A joint U.S.-European satellite built to monitor global sea levels lifted off on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 4E at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California Saturday at 9:17 a.m. PST (12:17 p.m. EST).
For Artemis astronauts traveling on missions to the Moon, two space weather instrument suites, HERMES and ERSA, will provide an early forecast.
Sea levels across the globe are rising as a result of a changing climate — and the rate at which they are rising is accelerating. Watch NASA Science Live Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 12:30 p.m. EST to meet NASA researchers studying these changes, and learn how the next mission launching to space will... Read More
NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope will detect vestiges of sound waves that once rippled through the primordial cosmic sea. According to new simulations, Roman’s observations could extend these measurements into an unprobed epoch between the universe’s infancy and the present day.
Astronomers find themselves in a similar position when calculating the amount of dust galaxies should have; there is more dust than expected, and they don’t know where it’s coming from.
Using computer models to generate a COVID-free 2020 for comparison, NASA researchers found that since February, pandemic restrictions have reduced global nitrogen dioxide concentrations by nearly 20%.
The International Space Station is well known as an orbiting laboratory, but during the past decade the station has also served a very different role - that of being a business incubator. One of its star products is the CubeSat.
A new finding about the formation of streaks within the aurora-like STEVE phenomenon brings scientists one step closer to solving the mystery.
On Earth, amethysts can form when gas bubbles in lava cool under the right conditions. In space, a dying star with a mass similar to the Sun is capable of producing a structure on par with the appeal of these beautiful gems.
Long ago and far across the universe, an enormous burst of gamma rays unleashed more energy in a half-second than the Sun will produce over its entire 10-billion-year lifetime. In May of 2020, light from the flash finally reached Earth and was first detected by NASA's Neil Gehrels Swift... Read More
NASA has established a Planetary Data Ecosystem (PDE) Independent Review Board (IRB) to examine data collected and analyzed by the science community and which uses modern software, tools, and information pipelines to maximize the agency’s investment in Solar System exploration.
