NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory 18 Nov 2019, 18:08 UTC
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center 18 Nov 2019, 18:00 UTC LISA Pathfinder, a mission led by ESA (the European Space Agency) that included NASA contributions, successfully demonstrated technologies needed to build a future space-based gravitational wave observatory, a tool for detecting ripples in space-time produced by, among other things, merging black holes. A team of NASA scientists leveraged LISA Pathfinder's record-setting sensitivity for a different purpose much closer to home — mapping microscopic dust shed by comets and asteroids.
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory News and Features 18 Nov 2019, 17:11 UTC The first map showing the global geology of Saturn's largest moon, Titan, has been completed and fully reveals a dynamic world of dunes, lakes, plains, craters and other terrains.
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center 15 Nov 2019, 12:30 UTC The universe is simply so vast that it can be difficult to maintain a sense of scale. Many galaxies we see through telescopes such as the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, the source of this beautiful image, look relatively similar: spiraling arms, a glowing center, and a mixture of bright specks of star formation and dark ripples of cosmic dust weaving throughout.
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory News and Features 15 Nov 2019, 09:03 UTC Even by the wild standards of the outer solar system, the strange orbits that carry Neptune's two innermost moons are unprecedented, according to newly published research.
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center 14 Nov 2019, 14:09 UTC A new instrument with its eye on the Moon is taking off aboard a high-altitude NASA plane to measure the Moon’s brightness and eventually help Earth observing sensors make more accurate measurements.
ESA Top News 13 Nov 2019, 10:00 UTC In June, NASA’s Curiosity rover reported the highest burst of methane recorded yet, but neither ESA’s Mars Express nor the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter recorded any signs of the illusive gas, despite flying over the same location at a similar time.
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory News and Features 12 Nov 2019, 20:11 UTC Scientists with NASA's Mars 2020 rover have discovered what may be one of the best places to look for signs of ancient life in Jezero Crater, where the rover will land on Feb. 18, 2021.
