NASA infrared data reveals Tropical Storm Emilia is strengthening

IMAGE: On June 28 at 4:59 p.m. EDT (2059 UTC) the AIRS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite showed powerful storms with very cold cloud top temperatures (purple) in excess of minus... view more  Credit: Credits: NASA JPL, Heidar Thrastarson Infrared NASA satellite imagery provided cloud top temperatures of thunderstorms that make up Tropical Storm Emilia. Comparing those NASA temperature readings with another satellite's data obtained the…

Astronomers observe the magnetic field of the remains of supernova 1987A

[TORONTO] For the first time, astronomers have directly observed the magnetism in one of astronomy's most studied objects: the remains of Supernova 1987A (SN 1987A), a dying star that appeared in our skies over thirty years ago. In addition to being an impressive observational achievement, the detection provides insight into the early stages of the evolution of supernova remnants and the cosmic magnetism within them.…

NASA’s GPM finds heavy rainfall on Tropical Storm Prapiroon’s southwestern side

When the Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite passed over the Northwestern Pacific Ocean, it saw very heavy rainfall occurring in one part of Tropical Storm Prapiroon. Tropical Depression 09W was located east of the Philippines when it was upgraded early today, June 29, to Tropical Storm Prapiroon. The tropical storm is in a favorable environment for intensification. Vertical wind shear is low…

Continental microbes helped seed ancient seas with nitrogen

Yet billions of years ago, before the advent of plants, continents would have appeared barren. These apparently vacant land forms were…

Space modelling project receives grant support from Russian Foundation for Basic...

The project is titled "Mathematical methods for modelling and analysis of physical states and radiation of complex astrophysical objects" and is headed by Associate Professor Vladislav Shimansky. A joint group of undergraduates, graduate students, doctorate students, and academics works on a new software system for spectral analysis. The resulting data will represent quantitative characteristics of space objects. Data from different telescopes will be used, including…

Hubble sees ‘Oumuamua getting a boost

`Oumuamua, the first interstellar object discovered in the Solar System, is moving away from the Sun faster than expected. This anomalous behaviour was detected using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope in cooperation with ground-based telescopes. The new results suggest that `Oumuamua is most likely a comet and not an asteroid. The discovery appears in the journal Nature. `Oumuamua -- the first interstellar object discovered within…

New NASA Research, Hardware Heading to Space Station on 15th SpaceX...

Experiments investigating cellular biology, Earth science and artificial intelligence are among the research heading to the International Space Station following Friday’s launch of a NASA-contracted SpaceX Dragon spacecraft at 5:42 a.m. EDT.

NASA observes the formation of Tropical Depression 09W in Northwestern Pacific

IMAGE: On June 28, a visible image of Tropical Depression 09W captured by the MODIS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite showed deep and persistent convection, mostly south of the... view more  Credit: Credits: NASA Goddard Rapid Response Team NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the Northwestern Pacific Ocean early on June 28 and caught an image of newly formed Tropical Depression 09W.

More clues that Earth-like exoplanets are indeed Earth-like

A new study from the Georgia Institute of Technology provides new clues indicating that an exoplanet 500 light-years away is much like Earth. Kepler-186f is the first identified Earth-sized planet outside the solar system orbiting a star in the habitable zone. This means it's the proper distance from its host star for liquid water to pool on the surface. The Georgia Tech study used simulations…

NASA finds depression strengthening into Tropical Storm Emilia

IMAGE: The GPM core observatory satellite passed over Tropical Depression Six-E on June 28 at 1:30 a.m. EDT (0530 UTC) as it was strengthening into a tropical storm. Powerful storms circling... view more  Credit: Credits: NASA/JAXA/NRL The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite passed over Tropical Depression Six-E in the Eastern Pacific Ocean and found heavy rainfall occurring in two areas. Shortly after GPM…
