If you were in Saturn's orbit looking toward its sunlit rings, this would be your view--that of Rings A and B slightly warped. In its upper regions, Saturn’s atmosphere absorbs some of the light reflected by the rings as it passes through them. And as light passes from space to the atmosphere and back out into space towards a camera on our Cassini spacecraft, its path is refracted, or bent. The result is that the ring's image appears warped. More: http://go.nasa.gov/2abWhJv

Hot gas in the halo of our Milky Way galaxy is spinning in the same direction & comparable speed as the galaxy's disk, which contains our stars, planets, gas, and dust. This new knowledge sheds light on how individual atoms have assembled into stars, planets, and galaxies like our own, and what the future holds for these galaxies. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/2abNp6P

Our OSIRIS-REx spacecraft is on a mission to explore near-Earth asteroid Bennu, a carbon-rich body that may contain clues to the origins of life. An instrument on the spacecraft will look at the asteroid's spectral signature to detect organics and other minerals: https://youtu.be/aYmgc9XL_Vs

When are we going to start sending miners to these asteroids? Do you have any way to prevent the black lung when they get there?

Planet Vulcan from Star Trek may not be a real, but the star system it belongs to – 40 Eridani – is, and it's only 16.5 light-years away from Earth. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/2a7JrMn

The future of aviation arrived in California in the form of the all-electric X-57 Maxwell, its cockpit is seen here.

The arrival marked a milestone in our project and signifies yet another step towards our goal of developing technologies that will make aviation more efficient, quieter and more environmentally friendly. More: http://go.nasa.gov/2aoPLmf

Peer into the vibrant core of a starburst galaxy, where new stars are forming & springing to life. This galaxy, spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope, is located approximately 50 million light-years away from Earth. Despite their appearance, the fuzzy white blobs dotted around the edge of this galaxy are not stars, but globular clusters. Found within a galaxy’s halo, globular clusters are ancient collections of hundreds of thousands of stars. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/2abjBqL

When looking for Earth-like planets with the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope, we don't want the telescope moving or distorting more than a few picometers — a measurement smaller than the size of an atom. Learn how we seek this accuracy: http://go.nasa.gov/2aiA93x

Warp drive.

If you're referring to the artistic concept from 2014, you're sadly mistaken. There is no "warp drive" currently, not in a realistic sense and certainly not in a light-speed sense.

If you worked on such a project, please link your credentials so that I may take a look at your qualifications for mall g such outlandish comments. I'd be very interested in working with you. But I'm guessing you're probably talking 80% bunk and 20% iron science fiction.

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.
