Obama Stripping Down NASA Probe Of Jupiter’s Moon To Pay For More Global Warming Research

The Obama administration announced plans to scale down NASA’s proposed mission to Jupiter’s icy moon Europa to pay for more global warming research, according to Universe Today. President Barack Obama requested NASA’s mission to Europa receive only $49.6 million in 2017, far less than the $175 million the mission got from Congress in 2016. Much […]

LISA Pathfinder Mission Paves Way for Space-based Detection of Gravitational Waves

LISA Pathfinder Mission Paves Way for Space-based Detection of Gravitational Waves

LISA Pathfinder, mind a mission led by the European Space Agency (ESA) with contributions from NASA, has successfully tested a key technology needed to build a space-based observatory for detecting gravitational waves. These tiny ripples in the fabric of space, predicted by Albert Einstein a century ago, were first seen last year by the ground-based […]

New NASA Instrument Brings Coasts and Coral into Focus

New NASA Instrument Brings Coasts and Coral into Focus

A coastal scene with deep blue seas and a coral reef is beautiful to look at, but if you try to record the scene with a camera or a scientific instrument, the results are almost always disappointing. Most cameras can’t “see” underwater objects in such scenes because they’re so dim and wash out the glaring […]

NASA’s Juno Spacecraft Crosses Jupiter/Sun Gravitational Boundary

NASA’s Juno Spacecraft Crosses Jupiter/Sun Gravitational Boundary

Since its launch five years ago, there have been three forces tugging at NASA’s Juno spacecraft as it speeds through the solar system. The sun, Earth and Jupiter have all been influential — a gravitational trifecta of sorts. At times, Earth was close enough to be the frontrunner. More recently, the sun has had the […]

NASA Telescopes Find Clues For How Giant Black Holes Formed So Quickly

NASA Telescopes Find Clues For How Giant Black Holes Formed So Quickly

Using data from NASA’s Great Observatories, astronomers have found the best evidence yet for cosmic seeds in the early universe that should grow into supermassive black holes. Researchers combined data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, Hubble Space Telescope, and Spitzer Space Telescope to identify these possible black hole seeds. They discuss their findings in a […]

Magnetic Reconnection Witnessed In Action For The First Time Ever

Magnetic Reconnection Witnessed In Action For The First Time Ever

Lola Gayle, sildenafil STEAM Register Four NASA spacecraft have flown through an invisible maelstrom in space, providing the first observations from inside a magnetic reconnection event. Magnetic reconnection is one of the prime drivers of space radiation. Therefore it is a key factor in the quest to learn more about our space environment and protect […]

Hiding in the Sunshine: The Search for Other Earths

Hiding in the Sunshine: The Search for Other Earths

We humans might not be the only ones to ponder our place in the universe. If intelligent aliens do roam the cosmos, viagra 100mg they too might ask a question that has gripped humans for centuries: Are we alone? These aliens might even have giant space telescopes dedicated to studying distant planets and searching for […]

Hubble Sees a Star ‘Inflating’ a Giant Bubble

For the 26th birthday of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers are highlighting a Hubble image of an enormous bubble being blown into space by a super-hot, massive star. The Hubble image of the Bubble Nebula, or NGC 7635, was chosen to mark the 26th anniversary of the launch of Hubble into Earth orbit by the […]

NASA, Scripps Institution of Oceanography Shake-up Earthquake Warning Systems

The fault lines running beneath California’s clay, sand and loam are rarely visible, and yet never far from mind for the tens of millions of people who call the state home. Even before California’s next major quake hits, its implications are already reverberating through research and first responder communities. When disaster strikes, the quality of […]
