Florida Students to Speak with First Cuban-American Astronaut on Space Station

Elementary school students from Florida will talk live this week with the first Cuban-American astronaut to live and work aboard the International Space Station.

First light for SPECULOOS

The SPECULOOS Southern Observatory (SSO) has been successfully installed at the Paranal Observatory and has obtained its first engineering and calibration images -- a process known as first light. After finishing this commissioning phase, this new array of planet-hunting telescopes will begin scientific operations, starting in earnest in January 2019. SSO is the core facility of a new exoplanet-hunting project called Search for habitable Planets…

Bringing balance to the universe: New theory could explain missing 95...

Scientists at the University of Oxford may have solved one of the biggest questions in modern physics, with a new paper unifying dark matter and dark energy into a single phenomenon: a fluid which possesses 'negative mass'. If you were to push a negative mass, it would accelerate towards you. This astonishing new theory may also prove right a prediction that Einstein made 100 years…

NIH-funded tissue chips rocket to International Space Station

When traveling in space, astronauts experience physiological changes normally associated with aging, such as bone loss, muscle deterioration and altered immune systems. When the astronauts return to Earth, the changes often reverse. To better understand the relevance of the astronauts' experience to human health -- both on the ground and beyond -- NIH's National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) partnered with the International Space…

NASA Astronaut Anne McClain and Crewmates Arrive Aboard Space Station

Three crew members are adjusting to life on the International Space Station after a successful launch and docking of their Russian Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft Monday.

A step closer to fusion energy

IMAGE: Researchers have moved a step closer to harnessing fusion energy by showing how imaging enables better testing of components for devices. view more  Credit: Swansea University Harnessing nuclear fusion, which powers the sun and stars, to help meet earth's energy needs, is a step closer after researchers showed that using two types of imaging can help them assess the safety and reliability of parts used…

NASA-NOAA satellite finds Owen fading in the Coral Sea

IMAGE: On Dec.4, the VIIRS instrument aboard NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Storm Owen in the Coral Sea, South Pacific Ocean. Owen was southwest of Vanuatu.... view more  Credit: NASA Worldview, Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Tropical Cyclone Owen appeared disorganized on satellite imagery as it moved through the Coral Sea in the Southern Pacific Ocean.

Portsmouth researchers make vital contribution to new gravitational wave discoveries

IMAGE: This illustration shows a stage in the merger of two galaxies that forms a single galaxy with two centrally located supermassive black holes surrounded by disks of hot gas. The... view more  Credit: NASA/CXC/A.Hobart Researchers from the University of Portsmouth have made vital contributions to the observations of four new gravitational waves, which were announced this weekend (1 December). The new results are from the…

NASA’s IMERG measures heavy rainfall in California wildfire areas

Heavy precipitation recently fell in areas of California that were recently devastated by deadly wildfires such as the Camp Fire and the Woolsey fire. This flooding rainfall has resulted in evacuations in burn scarred areas such as Butte County where the deadly Camp Fire hit this month. NASA used data from satellites and other sources to calculate the amount of rainfall that has occurred recently.…

NASA catches newborn Tropical Cyclone Owen’s rainfall, observed by GPM satellite

Tropical Cyclone Owen formed in the Southern Pacific Ocean's Coral Sea southwest of the Solomon Islands when the GPM core observatory satellite passed above and analyzed its rainfall. On December 2, 2018 at 9:50 a.m. EST (1450 UTC) data collected by GPM's Microwave Imager (GMI) and GPM's Dual-Frequency Precipitation Radar (DPR) instruments aboard the Global Precipitation Measuring Mission or GPM core satellite showed that tropical…
