Join the Community
We have a diverse community of folks here to talk science, write code, and just share memes and play games. Join the conversation on Discord and find a Geeky community welcoming to all. Want to do more? Join our opensource community on Github and be part of creating tomorrow’s citizen science.
CosmoQuest invites you to help NASA scientists make maps of scientifically interesting features in our Solar System. You can map craters on the Moon, and trace the splatter of asteroid impacts on Vesta. All these worlds are yours to explore!
Currently we’re rebuilding all our citizen science projects with a new interface. We’ll get you sciencing again as soon as we can.
If it takes a village to raise a child, it will take a global-community to understand the universe.
We are part of that community. You are part of it with us.
A new paper in Science looks at how our solar system formed in a two-step process that split up the planets into “dry” terrestrial planets and “wet” outer planets.
Researchers looked at the isotopic signature of nitrogen in a variety of iron meteorites and found indications that our world has nitrogen that originated from both beyond Jupiter and from the inner parts of our solar system.
A team of researchers studying the release of methane from the Arctic seafloor discovered that our moon not only raises tides in the water but also flexes the Earth enough to influence the release of gases.
Instruments on the International Space Station spotted a blue jet in February 2019, and the results were published this week in the journal Nature.
Cornell University scientists propose robotic submarine mission to Titan after discovering largest lake, Kraken Mare, is 1000 feet deep.
Scientists found that ancient Mars, or at least the part of ancient Mars at the bottom of Gale crater, was geologically similar to modern Iceland.
Scientists are hunting for the elusive axion, and to do this, they used data taken by NASA’s NuSTAR telescope of one of our favorite stars, Betelgeuse.
To try to express the breadth of what they’ve seen, the LIGO and VIRGO collaborations partnered with data visualizer Nadieh Bremer to create an interactive infographic that puts gravitational wave events in context.
What’s Up: Orion is high in the sky, bringing views of its nebula as well as the neighboring Pleiades and Hyades clusters. Also, Mars!
