NASA Science, Cargo Heads to Space Station on Northrop Grumman Mission

NASA Science, Cargo Heads to Space Station on Northrop Grumman Mission

On the 19th anniversary of the arrival of the first crew to live aboard the International Space Station, a Northrop Grumman Cygnus resupply spacecraft is on its way to the orbiting outpost with almost 8,200 pounds of science investigations and cargo after launching at 9:59 a.m. EDT Saturday from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The […]

Words and Science Matter!

Words and Science Matter!

 By Michael Greer Seriously, I can’t take it anymore. Calling illegal aliens “undocumented workers”, then “undocumented citizens” is a perfect example. If someone on Right says something they think is wrong the Left calls them a liar. If someone on the Left says a blatant lie (Benghazi was caused by a video) they say they […]

Fake Climate Science and Scientists

Fake Climate Science and Scientists

  by Paul Driessen The multi-colored placard in front of a $2-million home in North Center Chicago proudly proclaimed, “In this house we believe: No human is illegal” – and “Science is real” (plus a few other liberal mantras). I knew right away where the owners stood on climate change, and other hot-button political issues. […]

Galileo and the Medicis brought Revolution and Truth

Galileo and the Medicis brought Revolution and Truth

by Jeffrey Foss, Ph.D. Practically everyone knows that Galileo is a heroic figure in the rise of modern science. Most people do not know, however, that the scientific revolution that Galileo launched relied on the support and protection of the Medicis. The very name of this family signifies the marriage of power and wealth that […]

NASA Invests in 18 Potentially Revolutionary Space Tech Concepts

NASA Invests in 18 Potentially Revolutionary Space Tech Concepts

Smart spacesuits and solar surfing may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but they are just two of the technology concepts NASA has selected for further research as part of the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program. The program will fund 18 studies to determine the feasibility of early-stage technologies that could go on to change […]

SUMMERS: What Happens Once People Land On Mars?

SUMMERS: What Happens Once People Land On Mars?

Michael Summers | Professor of Planetary Science and Astronomy . NASA robotic missions to Mars have revealed a world with an amazingly complex history, including periods in which it was much warmer, with oceans, volcanoes, and was habitable for many types of simple Earth life. Even now, Mars still has abundant subsurface water and organic […]

‘Borderline Impossible’: Noted Scientist Tackles Sea Level Rise Alarmism

‘Borderline Impossible’: Noted Scientist Tackles Sea Level Rise Alarmism

 By MICHAEL BASTASCH | Energy Editor Scientist Judith Curry says alarming sea level rise projections are “very weakly justified to borderline impossible.” Curry’s new research found current sea level rise is within natural variability, despite some acceleration. “Climate variability and change is a lot more complex than ‘CO2 as control knob,’” Curry said. When it […]

Rooting out scientific corruption

Rooting out scientific corruption

  by Paul Driessen Dr. Brian Wansink recently resigned from his position as Columbia University professor, eating behavior researcher and director of the Cornell “food lab.” A faculty investigation found that he had misreported research data, failed to preserve data and results properly, and employed dubious statistical techniques. A fellow faculty member accused him of “serious research […]

NASA’s Fermi Traces Source of Cosmic Neutrino to Monster Black Hole

NASA’s Fermi Traces Source of Cosmic Neutrino to Monster Black Hole

For the first time ever, scientists using NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have found the source of a high-energy neutrino from outside our galaxy. This neutrino traveled 3.7 billion years at almost the speed of light before being detected on Earth. This is farther than any other neutrino whose origin scientists can identify.  High-energy neutrinos […]
