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.
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.
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.
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).
Is our solar system located in a typical Milky Way neighborhood? Scientists have gotten closer to answering this question.
Audio gathered by the mission may not sound quite the same on Mars as it would to our ears on Earth. A new interactive online experience lets you sample the difference.
On April 15, 2020, a brief burst of high-energy light swept through the solar system, triggering instruments on many NASA spacecraft. Scientists think the blast came from a supermagnetized stellar remnant located in a neighboring galaxy.
How dark does space get? If you get away from city lights and look up, the sky between the stars appears very dark indeed.
On Jan. 13, 2021, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory experienced its first lunar transit of the year when the Moon crossed its view of the Sun.
Yellowstone National Park's Old Faithful geyser regularly blasts a jet of boiling water high in the air. Now, an international team of astronomers has discovered a cosmic equivalent, a distant galaxy that erupts roughly every 114 days.
Climate researchers from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will release their annual assessment of global temperatures and discuss the major climate trends of 2020 during a media teleconference at 1 p.m. EST Thursday, Jan. 14.
