Planting hunting heats up! Our Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) will bring the search for life on distant planets closer to home. Launching in 2017-2018, TESS will identify planets orbiting the brightest stars just outside our solar system using what’s known as the transit method. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/2ayiSU5

From time to time , looking at the sky , I see happen in their paths to satellites , ISS ...

In those occasions I say: Thank! Scientists , engineers, technologists . He is working quietly and respectfully.

Very good and healthy to do this practice. Quietly observe and thank so many hours of work , editing, wondering and providing a step for Science , in order for everyone...

As hurricane season unfolds, a helpful set of eyes mounted on the International Space Station allows scientists to observe massive storms from a special angle. Watch: https://youtu.be/N57kgXWHTvs

Astronomers have used data from our Chandra X-ray Observatory to make a discovery that may have profound implications for understanding how the magnetic field in our sun and stars like it are generated. More: http://go.nasa.gov/2aktjHH

It is not a strict circumnavigation of the world, but our Atmospheric Tomography, or ATom, mission to fly down the Pacific Ocean then up the Atlantic is about as close as it gets. Set your alarms: Today at 6pm ET we're taking you to Palmdale, California to learn about this #‎EarthExpedition‬ ATom via Facebook Live at https://www.facebook.com/nasaearth

Beginning July 28, our flying laboratory aboard the DC-8 aircraft will journey with 42 scientists and operations crew on a 26-day journey from nearly pole to pole and back again. The first of four deployments that will take place over the next three years, they'll be measuring a suite of more than 200 gases as well as airborne particles from the remotest parts of the atmosphere to better understand the processes that govern how various greenhouse gases cycle around the world.

The loneliest young star. Alone on the cosmic road, far from any known celestial object, a young, independent star is going through a tremendous growth spurt. It was first detected as a source of X-ray light in 2009 and has been launching “jets” of material into the gas and dust around it. More: http://go.nasa.gov/2auE7pY

Supermassive black holes in the universe are like a raucous choir singing in the language of X-rays. When black holes pull in surrounding matter, they let out powerful X-ray bursts. This song of X-rays, coming from a chorus of millions of black holes, fills the entire sky -- a phenomenon astronomers call the cosmic X-ray background. More: http://go.nasa.gov/2ay6TpL

Scientists have been stumped as to why temperatures in Jupiter’s upper atmosphere are comparable to those found at Earth, yet Jupiter is more than five times the distance from the sun. New research suggests that Jupiter’s Great Red Spot may be the mysterious heat source. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/2aizPi6

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.
