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.
Laboratory experiments show that spectroscopic “windows” can be used to map and analyze the surface of Venus.
A new paper presents the discovery of a puffed up planet. Roughly the size of Jupiter, the world has ten times less mass than Jupiter.
New research uses data collected from NASA’s Juno Mission to evaluate some of the water ice found in the northern polar regions of Ganymede.
According to newly released NASA data, 2020 was tied with 2016 as the warmest year on record and was on average 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit or 1.02 degrees Celcius warmer than the baseline from 1951 to 1980.
In particle physics news, the axion may just be starting to reveal itself in unusual flashes associated with nearby neutron stars.
One of the earliest forming massive galaxies in our universe as part of the DESI survey and now holds the record for the most distant galaxy ever seen.
Hubble images revealed an intricate structure of glowing gas and dust, and with each new camera upgrade, HST has revisited planetary nebulae.
While this image looks like it was made with some new, it is actually a combination of a Hubble image and magnetic field data taken by the SOFIA airborne observatory.
Recently, a team of astronomers imaged a ghostly nebula in the nearby Small Magellanic Cloud. Working backward, they were able to estimate this supernova’s initial explosion to have been roughly 1700 years ago.
