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.
New results, published in Geophysical Research Letters, find that Mars has three subsurface boundaries – places where the density of the planet shifts.
Today in the Geophysical Research Letters, a new paper announces the discovery of undulating structures in Venus’ clouds that last for decades at a time.
In a trio of papers released yesterday in Nature and the Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, researchers used data from NASA Juno’s microwave radiometer and found evidence of ammonia-rich hail and shallow lightning.
Continuing their recent tradition of doing spectacular things on weekends, on Saturday, August 1, the SpaceX Dragon Crew Capsule Endeavor undocked from the International Space Station.
On Thursday, July 30th at 9:25 pm UTC, a Proton-M was launched from Site 200/39 at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Its payload was two communication satellites: Ekspress-80 and Ekspress-103.
On July 30 at 11:50 am UTC, the final Mars mission for this Martian launch window took off aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from SLC-41 at Cape Canaveral, Florida.
In new models, looking at what happens when these two objects come together, it appears that the more massive neutron star will shred the smaller neutron star, causing light to be released
Maybe a lot of those rivers and valleys we see carved on Mars weren’t carved by rivers we’d recognize but were instead carved by rivers under glaciers such as we rarely get to see.
Galaxy cluster SpARCS1049 is out there forming 900 some odd stars per year out of the gas and dust between galaxies. This is not normal.
