How Dust Affects the World’s Health

NASA research finds that a combination of windblown dust and human-caused particle pollution was associated with nearly 3 million premature deaths in 2019.

NASA Spinoffs Bolster Climate Resilience, Improve Medical Care, More

The latest edition of NASA’s Spinoff publication features dozens of new commercialized technologies that use the agency’s technology, research, and/or expertise to benefit people around the globe. It also includes a section highlighting technologies of tomorrow.

When Clouds Cave

When airplanes pass through clouds with supercooled water droplets, they can leave distinctive holes in their wake.

NASA’s SMCE Team Helps Scientists Develop Collaborative Cloud Computing Projects

An agile team of computer experts at NASA Goddard helps scientists collaborate and develop Open Science projects in astrophysics, Earth science, biology, and heliophysics by creating the SMCE managed cloud environment for science.

NASA Press Events at 2022 Fall AGU Meeting

NASA researchers will be presenting findings on Earth and space sciences Dec.12-16 at the American Geophysical Union's 2022 Fall meeting, being held virtually and in Chicago this year.

Spandan Das: Self-Taught Machine Learning Intern, NCCS User, College Student, and Published Author

In two NASA summer internships, Carnegie Mellon University computer science major Spandan Das has harnessed NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) compute power to build, train, and test machine learning models to help NASA develop new ways to detect Earth's precipitation.

Dusty Copper River Delta

Plumes from this part of Alaska happen in autumn when winds are strong, water levels are low, and snow has not yet blanketed the floodplain.

NASA’s Economic Benefit Reaches All 50 States

NASA released the results of its second agencywide economic impact report on Thursday, demonstrating how its Moon to Mars activities, investments in climate change research and technology, as well as other work generated more than $71.2 billion in total economic output during fiscal year 2021.

NASA Study Finds Evidence That Fuel Regulation Reduced Air Pollution from Shipping

A global standard limiting sulfur in ship fuel reduced artificial “ship track” clouds to record-low levels in 2020. Pandemic-related disruptions played a secondary role.

Western Smoke Rides the Winds

Smoke from fires in Washington and Oregon blanketed Puget Sound and wafted out over the Pacific Ocean.

Five Questions to Help You Understand Hurricanes and Climate Change

What’s the recipe for hurricane formation, and how is the behavior of these storms changing as Earth’s long-term warming trend continues? NASA research answers these questions to help you understand how excess heat in Earth’s oceans is changing the way hurricanes form and evolve.

Hurricane Agatha Strikes Mexico

In a potent start to the eastern Pacific hurricane season, the May storm brought torrential rain and fierce winds to Mexico’s Pacific Coast.

How Aerosols Helped Untangle Carbon Monoxide Trends

Short-lived aerosols from smoke helped researchers pinpoint some of the key processes drawing levels of carbon monoxide down.

A Global Decline in Carbon Monoxide

The widespread adoption of cleaner-burning technologies and declines in fire activity over the past two decades has drawn down global levels of the pollutant.

JPSS and GOES-R Exhibit Ribbon Cutting

On May 19, 2022, the Goddard Visitor Center held a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new exhibit by the JPSS and GOES-R Series programs. Located on the outer edge of the Rocket Garden, the exhibit features an abstract kinetic sculpture with three mirrored orbs, representing the Sun, Earth and the satellites, that are activated by the wind.

NASA Celebrates Earth Day with Every #NASAEarthling

NASA’s space exploration continues to inspire us to be better stewards of our planet and Earth Day is a great time to celebrate what we’ve done and can do to keep Earth everyone’s favorite planet in the universe.

NASA Invites Media to 59th Annual Robert H. Goddard Memorial Symposium

Media are invited to meet leaders in space exploration at the 59th annual Robert H. Goddard Memorial Symposium, taking place on the campus of the University of Maryland, College Park, from March 23 to 25. Attendees also have the option to watch the symposium online.

NASA Develops Technology to Dissect the Lower Atmosphere

Studying the lower atmosphere from space is a NASA priority, but there are significant challenges.

NASA-supported Prototype Turns Earth Data into 3D Video Dashboard

NASA field campaigns return vast troves of valuable data. Sometimes, however, processing so much raw information and related satellite imagery can slow the pace of scientific discovery. To combat that lag in output, researchers and programmers have developed a prototype 3D video dashboard for data from field campaigns...

Dust Storm Engulfs Canary Islands

The event, known locally as “la calima,” turned skies orange and degraded air quality in Gran Canaria and neighboring islands.

One Year into the Biden Administration, NASA Looks to Future

Over the past year, NASA has made valuable contributions to Biden-Harris Administration’s goals – leading on the global stage, addressing the urgent issue of climate change, creating high paying jobs, and inspiring future generations.
