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.

On Monday, we’ll announce some surprising new findings from Jupiter’s moon Europa. Spoiler alert: NOT aliens! Astronomers will present results from a unique Europa observing campaign that resulted in evidence of activity that may be related to the presence of a subsurface ocean.

Each winter, sea ice forms in both the Arctic and the Antarctic, then it retreats with each summer, but does not completely disappear. Explore all about sea ice with Earth Observatory: http://go.nasa.gov/2dtLfF2

The Hubble Space Telescope is more than a spacecraft; it’s a cultural icon. Show us how you #SpotHubble: http://www.nasa.gov/spothubble

Have you heard that we changed the zodiac signs? Nope, we definitely didn’t…we just did the math. Get the facts about what really happened to the astronomy behind the zodiac symbols: http://go.nasa.gov/zodiac

After more than 12 years studying Saturn, its rings and moons, our Cassini spacecraft has entered the final year of its epic voyage. The conclusion of the historic scientific odyssey is planned for September 2017, but not before the spacecraft completes a daring two-part endgame. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/2drNQiO

While farms are the leading source of pollution entering Chesapeake Bay, urban and suburban areas contribute large quantities of nitrogen, phosphorous, and sediment—the three main pollutants that cloud Bay waters and cause algal blooms and dead zones. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/2dtIbJ4

Four NASA spacecraft have performed a thrilling maneuver to understand the physics of explosive reconnection in Earth's magnetosphere, flying in a tetrahedron, or pyramid shape, in space: http://go.nasa.gov/2dtKawE

In the last century, we realized that space is filled with types of light we can’t see – from infrared signals released by hot stars and galaxies, to the cosmic microwave background that comes from every corner of the universe. Some of this invisible light is in the form of X-rays. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/2d1c1BQ

Thank you for sharing. You make the quality of life go up by exposing the mysterys. Magnetic reconnection releases particles of unknown energy. In the xray region is magnetic reconnection a possible solution or partial solution to the mystery?

When humans go on a #JourneyToMars, they need to know the natural conditions of the red planet before they arrive. That’s why we send rovers to the surface of Mars to photograph the landscape and operate scientific experiments to understand the habitat for humans or other kinds of life. One of those future rover missions may host the Martian Aqueous Habitat Reconnaissance Suite (MAHRS), a set of five instruments that can take surface measurements in the search for habitable environments.

agreed...still...you would think that if they believed that much ....they would have to believe that some observatory, some world class leader in the field, anyone of the various space agencies of the WORLD...would back them up (outside of their all knowing YouTube)...is that to much to ask?  But I guess for them it is
