How do you want to explore our Universe
Your place to learn about Space!
The Planetary Science Institute is bringing back the CosmoAcademy program! Sign-up today to get a small class experience that makes sitting online feel more like sitting around a shared table. Programs start March 20.
- Mars 101: How to live on Mars (and not die)
with Dr Nick Castle, Saturdays March 20 – April 24, 3pm – 4:30pm EDT
Other Future Events
- July 16-18, 2021
A celebration at the Intersection of Space and Creativity
- October 23-24
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 study proves that dark energy, whatever it may actually be, dominates our universe, and the expansion rate is accelerating likely as a result.
In a new paper, researchers discuss using exoplanets as a way to search for dark matter, theorizing that these planets will contain more dark matter in their cores and therefore be warmer.
Continued analysis of Mount Sharp on Mars provides evidence of an ancient dune field, and researchers question if microbial life could still exist underground.
New data released shows that in this first year of continuous operation, over 500 marsquakes have been detected by the SEIS instrument onboard NASA’s InSight lander.
New research provides evidence that the duration of the Permian-Triassic extinction event took ten times longer for the land animals than the ocean life.
Researchers gave observed evidence of a black hole caught in the act of spaghettifying a star through the analysis of the star’s absorption line spectra.
Sponsored by the Royal Astronomical Society and the UK Space Agency, a search is on for fifteen trees in the United Kingdom that were once flown as seeds to the Moon.
Using Synthetic Aperture Radar, researchers can now use precise measurements to track bushfires and floods, improving the response to natural hazards.
As observations eliminate more and more predicted possible particles from the supersymmetry model, it may be time to look at asymmetry for an answer.
