NASA Satellites Show How Clouds Respond to Arctic Sea Ice Change

09.23.2021
New NASA research shows that by releasing heat and moisture through a large hole in sea ice known as a polynya, the exposed ocean fuels the formation of more clouds that trap heat in the atmosphere and hinder the refreezing of new sea ice.

NASA’s Webb to Explore Forming Planetary Systems

09.22.2021
Researchers will observe more than a dozen protoplanetary systems to gather data about their inner disks – where Earth-like planets may be forming.

Hubble Finds Early, Massive Galaxies Running on Empty

09.22.2021
When NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array in northern Chile gazed toward cosmic objects in this period, they found something odd: six early, massive, "dead" galaxies that had run out of the cold hydrogen gas needed to make stars.

NASA Finds 2021 Arctic Summer Sea Ice 12th-Lowest on Record

09.22.2021
Sea ice in the Arctic appears to have hit its annual minimum extent on Sept. 16, after waning in the 2021 Northern Hemisphere spring and summer.

NASA Confirms Thousands of Massive, Ancient Volcanic Eruptions on Mars

09.15.2021
By studying the topography and mineral composition of a portion of the Arabia Terra region in northern Mars, scientists recently found evidence for thousands of “super eruptions,” which are the most violent volcanic explosions known.

Rerun of Supernova Blast Expected to Appear in 2037

09.13.2021
Astronomers have added a solid prediction of an event happening deep in intergalactic space: an image of an exploding star, dubbed Supernova Requiem, which will appear around the year 2037. Although this rebroadcast will not be visible to the naked eye, some future telescopes should be able to spot it.
