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 Kickstarter has been set up to raise US$10,000 for the historic Kwasan Observatory in Kyoto, Japan.
In a new paper, researchers look at the gamma-ray binary LS 5039 and, for the first time, found the companion star was a magnetar.
In a new paper, researchers detail the observations of fast-moving carbon monoxide gas flowing away from a young, low-mass star.
A new paper describes a fundamental plane for neutron stars that allows their luminosity to be predicted based on the duration of the X-ray plateau phase and the luminosity of the gamma-ray peak.
Western University grad student Cole Gregg noticed an object moving through his field of view that turned out to be an as-yet-undiscovered asteroid.
Galaxy NGC 1052-DF4 appears to have recently undergone some kind of a collision or interaction with the massive galaxy NGC 1035, an interaction that appears to have stripped the dark matter from NGC 1052-DF4.
A large sunspot rotated onto the face of the Sun, having been predicted by NSO scientists almost a week earlier.
Astronomers around the world are mourning the collapse of the Arecibo Observatory’s main instrument platform, which destroyed much of the dish as well.
We move even closer to home and take a look at Earth’s latest minimoon, a newly discovered asteroid with the designation 2020 CD3.
