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.
In a new paper in ApJ and led by Eric Hsiao, a weird type 1a supernova has been seen growing in brightness ever so slowly, and the rise and fall in the brightness of certain spectral lines didn’t match what is generally expected.
In a new paper in The Astrophysical Journal (ApJ), Chengze Liu and collaborators have explored the population of ultra-compact dwarf (UCD) galaxies and ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDG) in the Virgo Cluster using MegaCam on the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT).
In a new article in the journal Science, a research team led by Massimo Meneghetti has determined that there are dense clumps of dark matter associated with some galaxies in clusters.
No cause has yet been determined, and the team is working to finish a full evaluation of the damage.
A Planetary Society grant winner has found an asteroid using his personal telescope, which the grant paid to update.
All the Galilean moons are hotter than they should be at their distance from the Sun, and researchers have been trying to understand why.
Dense metallic hydrogen has been theorized for over a century. The hydrogen acts like an electrical conductor, and it makes up the interiors of giant planets like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
Yesterday the DOE announced that Berkeley Lab has been selected to lead the construction of a massive network of large and small telescopes in Chile and Antarctica for the purpose of observing the Cosmic Microwave Background.
Back in January 2019, planetary scientists noticed particles catching the light as they flew away from Bennu.
