A shroud of thick gas and dust surrounds a bright young star in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
As the spacecraft makes a close approach of the moon, it is expected to provide valuable science – and remarkable imagery – for NASA’s upcoming Europa Clipper mission.
According to satellite observations, Arctic sea ice reached its annual minimum extent on Sept. 18, 2022.
NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope shows off its capabilities closer to home with its first image of Neptune.
After capturing images of one of the brightest stars in Earth’s night sky, the Double Asteroid Redirection Test’s (DART) camera recently set its sights on another eye-catching spectacle: Jupiter and its four largest moons.
A key part of NASA's climate observing system, the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment (SAGE) III instrument on the International Space Station (ISS) observed enhanced stratospheric aerosols and water vapor months after the Tonga eruption.
Water departments in the West are using maps and models originally created by a NASA team to help track water.
NASA’s HARP instrument was the first hyper-angular polarimeter to fly in space and pioneered new technologies for observing cloud and aerosol properties—all on a tiny CubeSat!
NASA’s former program director of the James Webb Space Telescope, Gregory L. Robinson, will be honored with the 2022 Federal Employee of the Year medal, a preeminent career federal employee award, for his leadership of Webb.
NASA is crashing a spacecraft into an asteroid… on purpose! Our #DARTmission is a first-of-its-kind #PlanetaryDefense test to change the motion of an asteroid in space so that we could use this technique if an asteroid were ever discovered to be a threat to Earth. Follow DART: www.nasa.gov/DART
The Mars lander’s seismometer has picked up vibrations from four separate impacts in the past two years.
A team based at NASA used computer simulations to “erase” thousands of craters from the Moon’s surface, as if turning back the clock 4.25 billion years to a time before the craters formed. They found that the locations of the Moon’s North and South Poles moved slightly over this time period.
A glittering multitude of stars in the globular cluster Terzan 4 fills this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
NASA’s Perseverance rover is well into its second science campaign, collecting rock-core samples from features within an area long considered by scientists to be a top prospect for finding signs of ancient microbial life on Mars.
