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.

Hubble Beholds Brilliant Blue Star Cluster

In the top left corner of this starry sight, the globular cluster NGC 2031 shines brilliantly.

NASA Missions Probe Game-Changing Cosmic Explosion

On Dec. 11, 2021, NASA’s Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory and Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope detected a blast of high-energy light from the outskirts of a galaxy around 1 billion light-years away.

Hubble Spots Bright Splash of Stars Amid Ripples of Gas and Dust

Open cluster KMHK 1231 is a group of stars loosely bound by gravity. Seen in the upper left of this Hubble Space Telescope image, this cluster in the Large Magellanic Cloud is surrounded by a crimson nebula of gas and dust extending both to the right and downward, where new stars may someday form.

Peekaboo! Tiny, Hidden Galaxy Provides a Peek Into the Past

Peeking out from behind the glare of a bright foreground star, astronomers have uncovered the most extraordinary example yet of a nearby galaxy with characteristics that are more like galaxies in the distant, early universe.

Hubble Observes an Outstanding Open Cluster

A twinkling group of stars dominates the center of this image. NGC 2002 is an open star cluster that resides roughly 160,000 light-years away from Earth in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way containing numerous star-forming regions.

NASA’s Roman Mission Completes Key Optical Components

Engineers at Ball Aerospace, one of the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope's industrial partners, have installed and aligned the element wheel assembly into the observatory’s Wide Field Instrument. The assembly will help Roman solve some of the most profound mysteries in astrophysics.

Hubble Spies Emission Nebula-Star Cluster Duo

This whole collection is NGC 1858, an open star cluster in the northwest region of the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way that boasts an abundance of star-forming regions. NGC 1858 is estimated to be around 10 million years old.

Hubble Views a Cloud-Filled, Starry Scene

Bright, blue-white stars of the open cluster BSDL 2757 pierce through the rusty-red tones of gas and dust clouds in this NASA Hubble Space Telescope image.

Hubble Captures a Swarm of Stars

Looking like a glittering swarm of buzzing bees, the stars of globular cluster NGC 6440 shine brightly in this NASA Hubble Space Telescope image. Located some 28,000 light-years away in the constellation Sagittarius, the archer.

Hubble Spies Sparkling Spray of Stars in NGC 2660

This glittering group of stars, shining through the darkness like sparks left behind by a firework, is NGC 2660 in the constellation Vela, best viewed in the southern sky.

Hubble Glimpses a Glittering Gathering of Stars

This glittering gathering of stars is Pismis 26, a globular star cluster located about 23,000 light-years away.

Hubble Hunts an Unusual Galaxy

The galaxy merger Arp-Madore 417-391 steals the spotlight in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

NASA’s Webb Reveals an Exoplanet Atmosphere as Never Seen Before

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope just scored another first: a molecular and chemical profile of a distant world’s skies.

Hubble Views a Billowing Cosmic Cloud

A small, dense cloud of gas and dust called CB 130-3 blots out the center of this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

NASA’s Webb Draws Back Curtain on Universe’s Early Galaxies

A few days after officially starting science operations, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope propelled astronomers into a realm of early galaxies, previously hidden beyond the grasp of all other telescopes until now.

NASA’s Webb Catches Fiery Hourglass as New Star Forms

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has revealed the once-hidden features of the protostar within the dark cloud L1527, providing insight into the beginnings of a new star. These blazing clouds within the Taurus star-forming region are only visible in infrared light, making it an ideal target for Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam).

NASA Telescope, Moon Rocket Named TIME Inventions of 2022

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope and Space Launch System (SLS) rocket were named 2022 TIME Inventions of the Year.

Hubble Captures 3 Faces of Evolving Supernova in Early Universe

Three different moments in a far-off supernova explosion were captured in a single snapshot by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. The star exploded more than 11 billion years ago, when the universe was less than a fifth of its current age of 13.8 billion years.

Hubble Inspects a Pair of Space Oddities

This image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows two of the galaxies in the galactic triplet Arp 248 – also known as Wild's Triplet – which lies around 200 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Virgo.

NASA, Webb Telescope Partners Receive Aviation Week Grand Laureate Award

On Nov. 3, the James Webb Space Telescope team was named a Grand Laureate winner during the Aviation Week Network's 65th Annual Laureate Awards in Washington. NASA led the international Webb partnership with ESA (European Space Agency) and CSA (Canadian Space Agency).

How NASA’s Roman Telescope Will Scan for Showstopping Explosions

What happens when the densest, most massive stars – that are also super small – collide? They send out brilliant explosions known as kilonovae. Scientists will soon have an additional observatory to help follow up on and even scout these remarkable events: NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope, which is set to launch by May 2027.

Hubble Peers at Mysterious Cosmic ‘Keyhole’

This peculiar portrait from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope showcases NGC 1999, a reflection nebula in the constellation Orion.

Haunting Portrait: NASA’s Webb Reveals Dust, Structure in Pillars of Creation

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope using its Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) camera has snapped this eerie, extremely dusty view of the Pillars of Creation in mid-infrared light – showing us a new view of a familiar landscape.

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.
