Four tiny spacecraft soared over the California desert June 15 in a high-altitude demonstration flight that tested the sensor and equipment designs created by NASA engineers and student launch teams.
NASA has revealed that unknown understory fires are destroying several times more Amazon rainforest than has been lost through deforestation in recent years.
NASA Mars rover Opportunity isn't just on the move, it's also discovered a clay-rich rock that hints to the fact that water existed on the Red Planet in the past.
NASA's Aqua satellite passed over low pressure System 91L in the Gulf of Mexico and captured infrared imagery that revealed a lot of uplift and strong thunderstorms in the eastern part of the storm despite a poorly organized circulation. NOAA's GOES-East satellite showed the large extent of the low ...
A NASA team delivered in May a sophisticated microwave radiometer specifically designed to overcome the pitfalls that have plagued similar Earth-observing instruments in the past.
Traveling from one alien world to another, Dawn is reliably powering its way through the main asteroid belt with its ion propulsion system.
The Mars rover Curiosity may not have found evidence of life, but it's definitely found evidence of water on the Red Planet. NASA scientists have revealed that the rover has found evidence that rivers once ran across the surface of Mars that were between an inch to nearly three feet deep.
NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has confirmed the hazards of space radiation. Sending astronauts to the Red Planet without a properly protected spacecraft could drastically increase their risk of cancer.
NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has collected data and evidence that reveals an ancient streambed on Mars. The findings could hint at the possibility of life on the Red Planet in the past.
In the main belt between Mars and Jupiter, families of asteroids spin through space. Now, researchers have used NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) to make some new finds about these objects.
