Was the Martian past more Earth-like? Chemicals found in Martian rocks by our Curiosity Mars rover suggest the Red Planet once had more oxygen in its atmosphere than it does now. This hint of more oxygen in Mars' early atmosphere adds to other Curiosity findings -- such as evidence about ancient lakes -- revealing how Earth-like our neighboring planet once was.

Fired up! Did you miss today's booster test for our Space Launch System, the world’s most powerful rocket? Watch it now!

During the SLS flight the boosters will provide more than 75 percent of the thrust needed to escape the gravitational pull of the Earth, the first step on our journey to Mars. More: http://www.nasa.gov/sls

A peculiar source of radio waves thought to be a distant galaxy is actually a nearby binary star system containing a low-mass star and a black hole. This identification suggests there may be a vast number of black holes in our galaxy that have gone unnoticed until now. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/29652aV

Get ready! The largest, most powerful rocket booster built for flight will fire up for a major ground test Tuesday at Orbital ATK's test facilities in Promontory, Utah. This is the last, full-scale qualification test for the booster before the first, uncrewed flight of our new rocket, the Space Launch System, with the Orion spacecraft in 2018.

I do not think this is for Satellites. That would be like using a Semi-Truck as a Golf Cart.

Success! A booster for the most powerful rocket in the world, our Space Launch System (SLS), successfully fired up today for its second qualification ground test at Orbital ATK's test facilities in Utah. This was the last full-scale test for the booster before SLS’s first uncrewed test flight with our Orion spacecraft in late 2018, a key milestone on our journey to Mars.

At first glance, the most obvious features in this image from our Cassini spacecraft are Saturn's rings and the icy moon Enceladus. Upon closer inspection, Saturn's night side is also visible (near top center), faintly illuminated by sunlight reflected off the rings. More: http://go.nasa.gov/2968MJh

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.
