Our new study finds the last remaining section of Antarctica's Larsen B Ice Shelf, which partially collapsed in 2002, is quickly weakening and likely to disintegrate completely before the end of the decade. Get the facts: http://go.nasa.gov/1GazYQR

This morning aboard the International Space Station, European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti brewed the first espresso ever in space. After, she enjoyed the beverage viewing Earth from the station's cupola and wrote, "Coffee: the finest organic suspension ever devised. Fresh espresso in the new Zero-G cup! To boldly brew..."

Read why brews served in microgravity will percolate better science than coffee, thanks to the Space Cup: http://go.nasa.gov/1E7n8NA

Ever wonder how high the scoreboard could go? We did too, at the DC FIRST regional. #omgrobots

Today a former astronaut told me that he missed me while mentoring robotics this season (we worked together last year). 

Later, a former journal editor told me that in his 6 years of editing, that our second paper was one of the very best that he had published.

What a great day.  I am humbled.

Should add the solar system for hilarious comparison of the size of the pillars.
 
Astronomers have produced the first complete three-dimensional view of the iconic Pillars of Creation in the Eagle Nebula, Messier 16, made famous in an image from the Hubble Space Telescope. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1KEWdhv

I've always wondered about this wine-colored sea of Greeks (because they had no word for blue...) How far the meaning of any word describing a color has drifted from its original meaning?
This isn't another story about that dress, or...
