A Russian cargo ship loaded with almost three tons of food, fuel and supplies is set to launch to the International Space Station Monday, July 9. Live coverage of the spacecraft’s launch and docking will air on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

Theory of general relativity proven yet again in new research

In a novel test of Einstein's theory of general relativity, an international group of astronomers has demonstrated that the theory holds up, even for a massive three-star system. Einstein's theory states that all objects fall the same way despite their mass or composition, like a cannonball and apple falling off the Leaning Tower of Pisa and hitting the ground at the same time. While this…

NASA’s NuSTAR mission proves superstar Eta Carinae shoots cosmic rays

A new study using data from NASA's NuSTAR space telescope suggests that Eta Carinae, the most luminous and massive stellar system within 10,000 light-years, is accelerating particles to high energies -- some of which may reach Earth as cosmic rays. "We know the blast waves of exploded stars can accelerate cosmic ray particles to speeds comparable to that of light, an incredible energy boost," said…

Infrared NASA image reveals Hurricane Fabio’s power

IMAGE: NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Hurricane Fabio on July 2 at 4:35 p.m. EDT (2035 UTC) and saw coldest cloud top temperatures (purple) around the center of circulation and in... view more  Credit: Credits: NASA JPL/Heidar Thrastarson When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Hurricane Fabio in the Eastern Pacific Ocean it had strengthened into a hurricane hours earlier. Infrared imagery showed that Fabio appeared more…

They were rewarded with the first confirmed visual sighting…

NASA’s GPM satellite sees Fabio strengthening into a hurricane

NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core observatory satellite flew above Tropical Storm Fabio in the eastern Pacific Ocean as the storm was quickly strengthening into a hurricane. GPM provided a look at the heights of thunderstorms within, and estimated rainfall. Fabio formed as a depression on Saturday, June 30 around 5 p.m. EDT. It was the seventh tropical depression of the Eastern Pacific…
