Taking Stock of Edgy Parts of Greenland

Loss of ice at the periphery of the Greenland Ice Sheet was often discounted; recent research suggests it should not be.

GMAO and NCCS Provide Forecasts for 10 NASA Field Campaigns

This year, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) are providing near real-time atmospheric weather and chemistry forecasts for 10 NASA field campaigns — the largest number of supported campaigns since 2017.

Webb, Hubble Capture Detailed Views of DART Impact

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope and Hubble Space Telescope captured views of a unique NASA experiment designed to intentionally smash a spacecraft into a small asteroid in the world’s first-ever in-space test for planetary defense. These observations also mark the first time that Webb and Hubble simultaneously observed the same celestial target.

Fuel for Ian, Cool from Fiona

Warm seas provide fuel for extreme storms, and can then be cooled by them.

Hubble Detects Protective Shield Defending a Pair of Dwarf Galaxies

Recent theoretical predictions suggest that the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds must be protected by a pervasive shield that prevents the Milky Way from removing their essential star-forming gas.

NASA Maintains Contractual Relationship with Astra, Presses Forward with TROPICS Mission

Recognizing the urgent science needs, NASA is adjusting its launch services plan to complete the timely launch of a CubeSat constellation designed to improve understanding of tropical cyclones.

Hurricane Ian Reaches Florida

After damaging parts of Cuba and leaving the country dark, more destruction was expected as the powerful hurricane reached Florida’s western coast.

Noru Strikes the Philippines

After making landfall in the Polillo Islands and Luzon, the storm strengthened again as it headed toward Vietnam.

NASA Scientists from Goddard, Johnson Centers Elected as AGU Fellows

NASA scientists Matthew Rodell and Wei-Kuo Tao, both of the agency’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, as well as Michael Zolensky, of Johnson Space Center in Houston, have been elected as American Geophysical Union (AGU) fellows, three of 54 individuals in the 2022 class.

Canada Braces for Fiona

After buffeting Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and Bermuda, the hurricane appeared destined to be one of the strongest storms to ever reach the Canadian Maritimes.

Celebrate 'International Observe the Moon Night' with NASA

2022 Arctic Summer Sea Ice Tied for 10th-Lowest on Record

According to satellite observations, Arctic sea ice reached its annual minimum extent on Sept. 18, 2022.

Astronaut, Space Rocks, Moon Tools Featured in 'NASA Explorers' Video Series

It’s not rockets and satellites that make NASA soar. It’s people. On season 5 of NASA Explorers, “Artemis Generation,” you’ll meet the scientists and engineers who are studying Moon rocks, building tools, working aboard NASA’s International Space Station, and training astronauts in preparation for landing humans on the Moon.

New Webb Image Captures Clearest View of Neptune’s Rings in Decades

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope shows off its capabilities closer to home with its first image of Neptune.

Potent Storms Hit Puerto Rico, Japan

Fiona and Nanmadol dropped several feet of rain on the islands on opposite sides of the world.

The Inequitable Distribution of Urban Trees

A significant disparity in tree cover across urban neighborhoods leads to differences in temperatures and health outcomes.

NASA Study: Small Craters Add Up to Wandering Poles on Moon

A team based at NASA used computer simulations to “erase” thousands of craters from the Moon’s surface, as if turning back the clock 4.25 billion years to a time before the craters formed. They found that the locations of the Moon’s North and South Poles moved slightly over this time period.

A Pair of Ancient Lakes

Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa are among the oldest on Earth, with unique traits that come with age.
