Pluto's snow-capped southern mountains are anything but the hauntingly familiar sight we know from our Earth-based experience. In fact, our New Horizons spacecraft shows the caps to be atmospheric methane that has condensed as frost at high elevation. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/2c5o3Kd

After studying Ceres for 8 months from a low orbit of 240 miles off the surface, our Dawn spacecraft will move to a higher orbit of 910 miles to get different views of the dwarf planet: http://www.nasa.gov/feature/jpl/dawn-sets-course-for-higher-orbit

Dawn completed its prime mission on June 30, having surpassed all of its scientific objectives at Vesta and at Ceres, and we extended the mission to perform new studies of Ceres.

Our New Horizons spacecraft is doing some sightseeing along the way, as it speeds toward a New Year’s Day 2019 date with an ancient object in the distant region beyond Pluto. The spacecraft spotted the dwarf planet Quaoar (“Kwa-war”), which is roughly half the size of Pluto. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/2ceMqYe

New Horizons flew by Pluto in July 2015 and is now heading onward to new destination.

A new record for the most distant galaxy cluster has been set using our Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes. This galaxy cluster is located about 1.1 billion light years from Earth and may have been caught right after birth, an important stage of evolution never seen before.

In case you missed it, DNA was sequenced in space today for the first time ever! This was conducted as part of the Biomolecule Sequencer experiment on the International Space Station by astronaut Kate Rubins. Having the ability to sequence the DNA of living organisms in microgravity opens a whole new world of scientific and medical possibilities. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/2c9Y1HX

Cameras on the International Space Station captured views of three hurricanes today. This time-lapse video shows Hurricane Lester and madeline in the Pacific Ocean, then Gaston in the Atlantic Ocean. Take a look: https://youtu.be/5d-lCAlfr5s

Join us today at 2pm ET for a Q&A with scientists from NASA Earth and the U.S. Forest Service. We’ll discuss ways we’re collaborating and how NASA data and technology are helping the Forest Service understand wildfire behavior and improve wildfire recovery. Watch: http://www.facebook.com/nasaearth

I live in a place that hasn't had a fire in too long and needs it.  We need to figure out how to move it from places that are too burnt to places that need burnt.  That would be awesome.

NASA, I solved the mystery: it's not a star. It's a space anomaly that shows all the signs of a star, but actually isn't.

Introduction

NASA's mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research. To do that, thousands of people have been working around the world and in space for more than 50 years, trying to answer some basic questions. What's out there in space? How do we get there? What will we find? What can we learn there -- or learn just by trying to get there -- that will make life better here on Earth?


NASA's work is diverse: proving flight technologies; creating capabilities for sustainable human and robotic exploration; exploring Earth, the solar system and the universe beyond; developing critical enabling technologies such as the space shuttle; and conducting science in orbit aboard the International Space Station. With NASA you can explore the universe and discover Earth.
