How do you want to explore our Universe
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.
On Sunday, 13 June, the Hubble Space Telescope shut itself down due to an error in its 1980s-era payload module, and the operations team is working to restore the system.

A galaxy spotted in 2018 that appeared to have no dark matter has been re-observed and confirmed to actually have no dark matter.
Researchers using the Chandra X-ray Observatory observed 24,000 young stars and caught over 1,000 of them giving off mega-flares.
In a series of images taken by ALMA, researchers have caught a solar system in the act of forming at a star 400 light-years away.
An analysis of seismic imaging data reveals that there is a set of stacked magma chambers beneath the axial melt lens of Axial Seamount in the Juna de Fuca Ridge.
A 2019 earthquake swarm near Lake Taupō in New Zealand, the site of an active volcanic caldera, has lead to an increase in the number of monitoring sensors in the area.
Researchers seeking to understand craters on Titan have found an Earth analogue to use until Dragonfly arrives at the large moon — Haughton impact crater.
Using zircon crystals found in granitic rock around and in Chicxulub crater, scientists have found the remains of an ancient volcanic arc dating back at least 400 million years.
