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.
The Event Horizon Telescope, a collaboration of radio telescopes all across the globe, has released new super-high-resolution images, this time of the inner details of the galaxy Centaurus A’s jets.
Using ALMA, scientists detected a circumplanetary disk around exoplanet PDS 70c, which is a Jupiter-like planet orbiting a star about 400 light-years away.
In a recent study of the atmosphere of an exoplanet, researchers were able to learn about the planet’s history from the kinds of carbon atoms detected.
In three new papers, scientists analyzed data from NASA’s InSight lander to reveal the structure of Mars and its crust, lithosphere, mantle, and core.
Instruments aboard ESA’s Solar Orbiter allowed researchers to determine that cometary fragments reshape the Sun’s magnetic field.
Venus’ atmosphere has a weather pattern called super-rotation that causes cloud patterns to move so fast that nighttime infrared imaging couldn’t be done special data reduction techniques.
A new paper points out that underwater landslides can be caused when massive icebergs run aground or otherwise hit or scrape outcrops in the seafloor.
High in the summer sky, a massive triangle made of the stars Vega, Deneb, and Altair marks out a section of the Milky Way.
NGC 6380 is an ancient globular located 35000 light years away in the constellation of Scorpio and can be seen with a 12-inch or larger telescope.
