NASA’s EPIC view spots flashes on Earth

One million miles from Earth, a NASA camera is capturing unexpected flashes of light reflecting off our planet. The homeward-facing instrument on NOAA's Deep...

First global maps of volcanic emissions use NASA satellite data

Volcanoes erupt, they spew ash, their scarred flanks sometimes run with both lava and landslides. But only occasionally. A less dramatic but important process...

ChemCam findings hint at oxygen-rich past on Mars

The discovery of manganese oxides in Martian rocks might tell us that the Red Planet was once more Earth-like than previously believed. A new...

Pluto’s Heart: Like a Cosmic ‘Lava Lamp’

Combining computer models with topographic and compositional data gathered by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft last summer, New Horizons team members have determined the depth...

Close encounters of a tidal kind could lead to cracks on...

A new model developed by University of Rochester researchers could offer a new explanation as to how cracks on icy moons, such as Pluto's...

Satellite Data Could Help Reduce Flights Sidelined by Volcanic Eruptions

A volcano erupting and spewing ash into the sky can cover nearby areas under a thick coating of ash and can also have consequences...

Mars surface revealed in unprecedented detail

The surface of Mars -- including the location of Beagle-2 -- has been shown in unprecedented detail by UCL scientists using a revolutionary image...

NASA, Japan make ASTER earth data available at no cost

Beginning today, all Earth imagery from a prolific Japanese remote sensing instrument operating aboard NASA's Terra spacecraft since late 1999 is now available to...

DHS and NASA technology helps save four in Nepal earthquake disaster

Four men trapped under as much as 10 feet of bricks, mud and other debris have been rescued in Nepal thanks to a new...

NASA Image of Colima Eruption

Colima Volcano, one of Mexico’s most active, is at it again. The Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 captured this natural-color view of...

A 3-D view of the Greenland Ice Sheet opens window on...

Scientists using ice-penetrating radar data collected by NASA's Operation IceBridge and earlier airborne campaigns have built the first comprehensive map of layers deep inside...

NASA mountaintop sensor finds high methane over Los Angeles

A NASA study using two years of observations from a novel mountaintop instrument finds that Los Angeles' annual emissions of methane, an important greenhouse...

Space Mining

NASA has contracted with two private space firms to prepare and execute missions to land on and mine asteroids for valuable resources. Space mining...

NASA missions let scientists see moon’s dancing tide from orbit

Scientists combined observations from two NASA missions to check out the moon's lopsided shape and how it changes under Earth's sway -- a response...

NASA image: Volcanoes in Guatemala

This photo of volcanoes in Guatemala was taken from NASA's C-20A aircraft during a four-week Earth science radar imaging mission deployment over Central and...

NASA’s Van Allen Probes Reveal Zebra Stripes in Space

Scientists have discovered a new, persistent structure in one of two radiation belts surrounding Earth. NASA's twin Van Allen Probes spacecraft have shown that...
