Saturn's vast ring system is heating the giant planet's upper atmosphere. The phenomenon has never before been seen in the solar system.
Join us online on April 4th for an “Introduction to Do NASA Science LIVE!”. During this event, citizen science experts from NASA and SciStarter will describe how and why NASA works with the public to accelerate important research.
An international team of researchers has used NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to measure the temperature of the rocky exoplanet TRAPPIST-1 b.
Streams of star-forming gas dripping from the disk of galaxy JW100 are formed by a process called ram pressure stripping.
Hubble – as interplanetary meteorologist – is keeping track of the outer planets' weather, as it does every year.
Researchers observing with NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope have pinpointed silicate cloud features in a distant planet’s atmosphere. The team, led by Brittany Miles of the University of Arizona, also made extraordinarily clear detections of water, methane and carbon monoxide with Webb’s data, and... Read More
Scientists need your help tracking active regions as they return from their trip around the Sun’s far side.
Supported by volunteers from JPL and the aerospace industry, the annual regional FIRST Robotics event makes an impact on young competitors and adult mentors alike.
NASA’s Dragonfly mission to Saturn’s giant moon, Titan, will carry an instrument called the Dragonfly Mass Spectrometer designed to help scientists hone in on the chemistry at work on Titan. It may also shed light on the kinds of chemical steps that occurred on Earth that ultimately led to the... Read More
Observations from space show that the rate of sea level rise is increasing. Knowing where and how much rise is happening can help coastal planners prepare for future hazards.
UGCA 307 hangs against an irregular backdrop of distant galaxies in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
A NASA rocket team is on the hunt for giant hurricane-like swirls in our upper atmosphere. The Vorticity Experiment, or VortEx mission, is readying for a launch on March 17, 2023, from the Andøya Space Center in Andenes, Norway.
NASA’s Fundamental Physics Program has selected seven proposals submitted in response to the Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences - 2022 (ROSES-2022) E.6 Fundamental Physics call for proposal
Cosmic fireworks, invisible to our eyes, fill the night sky. We can get a glimpse of this elusive light show thanks to the Large Area Telescope (LAT) aboard NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, which observes the sky in gamma rays, the highest-energy form of light.
