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.
We look at a new family of galaxies called “cold quasars” where there is an active black hole emitting high energy X-rays as well as colder gas shining dimly in infrared light.
When it comes to finding massive galaxies with massive jets, the MeerKAT radio observatory in South Africa has the sensitivity to see things like never before.
Scientists have observed changes in the protoplanetary disk of young star HD 163296 to see where a planet is starting to form.
In a new study of Martian glaciers, a team worked backward to figure out how Mars was oriented when the glaciers were deposited, and when over time things happened.
A team of scientists has developed an inverse method for analyzing the composition of surface and subsurface rocks using post-seismic GPS data.
Using a combination of high-resolution data from various NASA missions, researchers have carefully studied how tiny solar plumelets can evolve over time, affecting space weather solar system wide.
A new paper explains how a team of researchers figured out how exactly to recreate nearly one thousand years’ worth of solar activity data by using tree rings.
During its closest approach to the Sun, the Parker Solar Probe will be traveling so fast that it could go from the Earth to the Moon in 50 minutes.
The long-awaited Green Run for the Space Launch System Core Stage occurred on January 16th. What was supposed to be a 480-second burn, but the engines shut down after only 67.2 seconds.
