NASA Mission to Study Ice Clouds, Help Observe Our Dynamic Atmosphere

NASA has selected a new mission to help humanity better understand Earth’s dynamic atmosphere – specifically, ice clouds that form at high altitudes throughout tropical and sub-tropical regions. The PolSIR instrument – short for Polarized Submillimeter Ice-cloud Radiometer – will study such ice clouds to determine how and why they change throughout

NASA Goddard, National Philharmonic Explore Cosmos Through Imagery, Music Collaboration

Awe-inspiring NASA visuals combined with the might of a live symphonic orchestra last week in “Cosmic Cycles,” a multimedia collaboration among the agency’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, the National Philharmonic, and composer Henry Dehlinger.

NASA Data Helps Track Veterans’ Exposure to Air Pollution

Researchers with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are using NASA Earth observations of smoke and other air pollution to study the health impacts on veterans who were deployed to Afghanistan, Iraq, and other areas of Southwest Asia in the years after September 11, 2001.

NASA Celebrates Earth Day with Earth Science in Action

This Earth Day, you can join us in person and online to see how our observations help us monitor the planet’s vital signs and share them with scientists and citizens around the world.

NASA Releases Agency Climate Strategy

NASA has been working to better understand our home planet from the unique vantage point of space since the first TIROS satellites launched in the 1960s. Today, with more than two dozen Earth-observing satellites and instruments, it’s clearer than ever that our planet is an interconnected system.

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’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.
