NASA's Roman Mission Will Probe Galaxy's Core for Hot Jupiters, Brown Dwarfs

NASA???s Roman Space Telescope will conduct a microlensing survey to reveal worlds that are similar to the planets in our solar system. Now, a new study shows that the same survey will also unveil more extreme planets and planet-like bodies in the heart of the galaxy, thanks to their gravitational tug on the stars they orbit.

Hubble Takes Portrait of the "Lost Galaxy"

Located in the constellation of Virgo (The Virgin), around 50 million light-years from Earth, the galaxy NGC 4535 is truly a stunning sight to behold.

Back to the Beginning: Probing the First Galaxies with Webb

Soon, through the power of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), astronomers will look back to that raucous, early period in a deep-sky survey to trace the formation and evolution of the first galaxies.

Hubble Snaps Stunning Barred Spiral Galaxy

First discovered in 1798 by German-English astronomer William Herschel, NGC 613 is a galaxy which lies in the southern constellation of Sculptor 67 million light-years away.

Heliophysics Hackweek 2020 Coronal Holes Team Publishes Results at NeurIPS 2020

Helio Hackweek 2020 “Coronal Holes” team members and other hackweek participants continued their collaboration and published a paper and poster of their results at the 34th Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems. “SEARCH: SEgmentation of polAR Coronal Holes,” was published at the Machine Learning and the Physical Sciences Workshop.

Researchers Rewind the Clock to Calculate Age and Site of Supernova Blast

Astronomers are winding back the clock on the expanding remains of a nearby, exploded star. By using NASA???s Hubble Space Telescope, they retraced the speedy shrapnel from the blast to calculate a more accurate estimate of the location and time of the stellar detonation.

Roman Space Telescope Could Image 100 Hubble Ultra Deep Fields at Once

Some of the Hubble Space Telescope???s most iconic images are the deep fields, which unveil myriad galaxies across the universe, stretching back to within a few hundred million years of the big bang. The galaxy tapestry was uncovered by Hubble peering at a single patch of seemingly empty sky for hundreds of hours.

Hubble Views a Dazzling 'Fireworks Galaxy'

In the last century alone, NGC 6946 has experienced 10 observed supernovae, earning its nickname as the Fireworks Galaxy.

NASA Selects 4 Concepts for Small Missions to Study Universe's Secrets

NASA has chosen four small-scale astrophysics missions for further concept development in a new program called Pioneers.

21 Ways to Celebrate the James Webb Space Telescope Launch in 2021

A new year brings hope, expectations, and promise. Related to the space science community, this year will also bring the much-anticipated launch of NASA???s James Webb Space Telescope.

NASA's Webb Telescope Looks Back on 2020 Engineering Milestones

2020 was a year of monumental progress for NASA???s James Webb Space Telescope. The world???s largest and most powerful space observatory advanced through a series of engineering milestones at Northrop Grumman???s facilities in Redondo Beach, California, in preparation for its launch in 2021.

The mission of the AI Center of Excellence is to enable new AI techniques for scientific discovery, providing scientists within NASA Goddard and their partners beyond NASA with resources for increased collaboration, innovation, and co-learning.

Detailing the Formation of Distant Solar Systems with NASA's Webb Telescope

Researchers will conduct a survey with the Webb Telescope to compare planet-forming disks.

Dark Storm on Neptune Reverses Direction, Possibly Shedding a Fragment

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope watched a mysterious dark vortex on Neptune abruptly steer away from a likely death on the giant blue planet.

For 30th Anniversary, Hubble Releases Images of 30 Celestial Gems

The Hubble Space Telescope turned 30 this year, and for the occasion, it???s sharing a present with you. NASA has just released dozens of newly processed Hubble images featuring 30 dazzling galaxies, sparkling star clusters, and ethereal nebulae.

Hubble Pins Down Weird Exoplanet with Far-Flung Orbit

A planet in an unlikely orbit around a double star 336 light-years away may offer a clue to a mystery much closer to home: a hypothesized, distant body in our solar system dubbed "Planet Nine."

Hubble Gazes Upon Cosmic Wonderland

This large expanse of space captured with the Hubble Space Telescope features the galaxy SDSS J225506.80+005839.9.

Hubble Captures Unprecedented Fading of Stingray Nebula

Astronomers have caught a rare look at a rapidly fading shroud of gas around an aging star. Archival data from NASA???s Hubble Space Telescope reveal that the nebula Hen 3-1357, nicknamed the Stingray nebula, has faded precipitously over just the past two decades.

New Hubble Data Explains Missing Dark Matter

In 2018 an international team of researchers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and several other observatories uncovered, for the first time, a galaxy in our cosmic neighborhood that is missing most of its dark matter.

Hubble Snaps Galaxy With Intriguing Supernova Past

This Hubble image shows a close-up view of a galaxy named NGC 2770. NGC 2770 is intriguing, as over time it has hosted four different observed supernovae (not visible here).

Hubble Captures Cosmic Cinnamon Bun

Observed with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, the faint galaxy featured in this image is known as UGC 12588.

NASA’s Roman Space Telescope to Uncover Echoes of the Universe’s Creation

NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope will detect vestiges of sound waves that once rippled through the primordial cosmic sea. According to new simulations, Roman’s observations could extend these measurements into an unprobed epoch between the universe’s infancy and the present day.
