Explore the universe and discover our home planet with the official NASA page on Google+
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.

+Dan Ramos I don't know about "noisy", but yeah, it does look like a pretty cool muffler pipe. I wish the link actually had an article.

Switch on the sun! We can simulate the solar and space environment to test future exploration equipment. Our High Intensity Solar Environment Test System (HISET) is the only place on Earth where spacecraft systems and materials can, at the same time, be subjected to the vacuum, temperatures, solar photons and to the electrons and protons of solar winds like they will encounter in space.

I wonder what the data shows flares to weather events.

Our sun-observing spacecraft watched as an elongated, streaming arch of solar material rose up at the sun’s edge. These details were captured in a type of light that’s invisible to the human eyes, called extreme ultraviolet. The images were colorized in gold for easy viewing.

dusts and gases is important, but even more important is what big corporations spray after us. probably to complete full inspections.

Like a drop of dew upon a leaf, the water-world Enceladus appears to sit atop Saturn’s rings. This view looks toward the unilluminated side of the rings from a distance of approximately 930,000 miles. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1Oc8RWa

For the first time ever, we conveyed aviation data to an airplane over a wireless communication system! Until now, pilots have relied on voice communication with air traffic control because traditional wireless technologies don’t support high data throughputs. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/26R0Ilr

So a pilot before takeoff would see his heading, altitude, frequency, and transponder number on his dash and hit "ok" or something? You'd think he'd at least have to get a "cleared for takeoff" message from the tower, or any other time sensitive information. Interesting to see how this will be applied. Check off another NASA contribution to the world!

Spotted! Our Mars orbiter finds clues about volcanoes under ice on the Red Planet billions of years ago. The research about these volcanoes helps show there was extensive ice on ancient Mars. Discover more: http://go.nasa.gov/24w4D5i

What’s up for May? Mercury transits the sun and Mars is closer to Earth than it has been in 11 years. See what else you can spot in the sky this month: https://youtu.be/TQ-qbykREXE

We’re combining satellite images with novel algorithms to monitor hazardous thunderstorms. With this method, we can identify where severe winds, hail or tornadoes are more likely to occur within storm clouds. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/1OctIbW

+Byron Jones I'm going to speculate wildly here, and say that when there's a hurricane, there's high winds and rain and storm-driven tides.

Earth has a new lightning capital, according to a recent study. Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela earned the top spot receiving an average rate of about 233 flashes per square kilometer per year. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/24k3wc0
