The next three decades will see an end of the era of big ozone holes. In a new study, scientists say that the ozone hole will be consistently smaller by the year 2040.

Looking Down On Jupiter's North Pole

Ted Stryk created this view of Jupiter's north pole by combining 's six best pictures (12 if you count the color pairs as individual pictures) to make a mosaic of Jupiter looking down on its north pole soon after Pioneer 11's closest approach. To date, no other spacecraft has gotten such a direct view of a Jovian pole.

Researchers think an optical illusion is responsible for most -- but not all -- of what appear to be individual jets on Saturn's moon Enceladus. Some discrete jets are still required to explain observations from our Cassini mission. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1cnGjNq

In a desert in eastern Sudan, along the banks of the Nile River, lies a collection of nearly 200 ancient pyramids - many of them tombs of the kings and queens of the Meroitic Kingdom which ruled the area for more than 900 years.

Astronomers find first evidence of changing conditions on a super Earth

Astronomers have detected wildly changing temperatures on a super Earth – the first time any atmospheric variability has been observed on a rocky planet outside the solar system – and believe it could be due to huge amounts of volcanic activity, further adding to the mystery of what had been nicknamed the 'diamond planet'.

NASA's Lunar Orbiter Moves Closer to the Moon's Surface!
May 5, 2015: The image is a visualization of the LRO spacecraft as it passes low over the moon¹s surface near the lunar South Pole. From this vantage point LRO will continue to make detailed measurements of the lunar surface, and now from its lower orbit near the South Pole will make unique observations of selected areas.

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has completed a maneuver that lowered the spacecraft’s orbit to within 20 kilometers (12 miles) above areas near the lunar South Pole, the closest the spacecraft has ever been to the lunar surface.

On Monday, May 4, 2015 flight controllers at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland performed two station keeping burns to change LRO’s orbit. The new orbit allows LRO to pass within 20 km (12 miles) of the South Pole and 165 km (103 miles) over the North Pole.

"We're taking LRO closer to the moon than we've ever done before, but the maneuver is similar to all other station keeping maneuvers, so the mission operations team knows exactly what to do,” said Steve Odendahl, LRO mission manager from NASA Goddard.  

To optimize science return, team members made the decision to change the orbit after determining that the new orbit configuration poses no danger to the spacecraft. LRO can operate for many years at this orbit.

The new orbit enables exciting new science and will see improved measurements near the South Pole. Two of the instruments benefit significantly from the orbit change. The return signal from the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) laser shots will become stronger, producing a better signal. LOLA will obtain better measurements of specific regions near the South Pole that have unique illumination conditions. Diviner will be able to see smaller lunar features through the collection of higher resolution data.

“The lunar poles are still places of mystery where the inside of some craters never see direct sunlight and the coldest temperatures in the solar system have been recorded,” said John Keller, LRO project scientist at NASA Goddard. “By lowering the orbit over the South Pole, we are essentially magnifying the sensitivity of the LRO instruments which will help us understand the mechanisms by which water or other volatiles might be trapped there.”

Launched on June 18, 2009, LRO has collected a treasure trove of data with its seven powerful instruments, making an invaluable contribution to our knowledge about the moon. LRO is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

Astrophysicists offer proof that famous image shows forming planets

This image sparked scientific debate when it was released last year, with researchers arguing over whether newly forming planets were responsible for gaps in the dust and gas swirling around the young star.

If the clouds disappear, I just might be able to watch this, but the chances are so slim. It's typical spring weather here in the Alps. Rain, rain, rain and occassionaly more rain. :p
