Hubble’s New View of the Tarantula Nebula

A snapshot of the Tarantula Nebula (also known as 30 Doradus) is featured in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

For the First Time Hubble Directly Measures Mass of a Lone White Dwarf

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have for the first time directly measured the mass of a single, isolated white dwarf.

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.

Hubble Views a Stellar Duo in Orion Nebula

The bright variable star V 372 Orionis takes center stage in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

NASA’s Fermi Detects First Gamma-Ray Eclipses From ‘Spider’ Star Systems

Scientists have discovered the first gamma-ray eclipses from a special type of binary star system using data from NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.

Webb Unveils Dark Side of Pre-stellar Ice Chemistry

An international team of astronomers using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has obtained an in-depth inventory of the deepest, coldest ices measured to date in a molecular cloud.

Hubble Captures Cosmic Treasure Trove

A host of astronomical objects are scattered across this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. Background galaxies ranging from stately spirals to fuzzy ellipticals are strewn across the image.

NASA Recaps Webb Telescope Findings From AAS Meeting

Scientists shared new findings and updates from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, also called “Webb” or “JWST,” at press conferences during the 241st meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) in Seattle, from Jan. 8 to 12.

Hubble Visits Galactic Neighbors

This image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope features the galaxy LEDA 48062 in the constellation Perseus.

Hubble Finds Hungry Black Hole Twisting Captured Star Into Donut Shape

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have recorded a star's final moments in detail as it gets gobbled up by a black hole.

NASA’s Webb Confirms Its First Exoplanet

Researchers confirmed an exoplanet, a planet that orbits another star, using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope for the first time. Formally classified as LHS 475 b, the planet is almost exactly the same size as our own, clocking in at 99% of Earth’s diameter.

NASA’s Webb Uncovers Star Formation in Cluster’s Dusty Ribbons

NGC 346, one of the most dynamic star-forming regions in nearby galaxies, is full of mystery. Now, it is less mysterious with new findings from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope.

New Webb Image Reveals Dusty Disk Like Never Seen Before

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has imaged the inner workings of a dusty disk surrounding a nearby red dwarf star.

NASA’s TESS Discovers Planetary System’s Second Earth-Size World

Using data from NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, scientists have identified an Earth-size world, called TOI 700 e, orbiting within the habitable zone of its star – the range of distances where liquid water could occur on a planet’s surface.

NASA’s Webb Telescope Reveals Links Between Galaxies Near and Far

A new analysis of distant galaxies imaged by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope shows that they are extremely young and share some remarkable similarities to “green peas,” a rare class of small galaxies in our cosmic backyard.

NASA’s Retired Compton Mission Reveals Superheavy Neutron Stars

Signals found in archival observations of powerful explosions called short gamma-ray bursts indicate the brief existence of a supersized neutron star before it collapsed into a black hole.

NASA Science To Be Featured at American Astronomical Society Meeting

Experts will discuss new research from NASA missions at the 241st meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS), on topics ranging from the universe’s early galaxies to planets outside our solar system.

Hubble Gazes at Colorful Cluster of Scattered Stars

The scattered stars of the globular cluster NGC 6355 are strewn across this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble Finds That Ghost Light Among Galaxies Stretches Far Back In Time

In giant clusters of hundreds or thousands of galaxies, innumerable stars wander among the galaxies like lost souls, emitting a ghostly haze of light.

Assembly Begins on NASA’s Next Tool to Study Exoplanets

The Coronagraph Instrument on NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope will study planets around other stars. Putting it together will require a highly choreographed dance.

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 Gets Unusually Close Glimpse of Black Hole Snacking on Star

Recent observations of a black hole devouring a wandering star may help scientists understand more complex black hole feeding behaviors.

Hubble Views a Star-Studded Cosmic Cloud

A portion of the open cluster NGC 6530 appears as a roiling wall of smoke studded with stars in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble Captures Majestic Barred Spiral

Against an inky black backdrop, the blue swirls of barred spiral galaxy NGC 6956 stand out radiantly.

NASA’s Webb Unveils Young Stars in Early Stages of Formation

Scientists taking a “deep dive” into one of Webb’s iconic first images, the Cosmic Cliffs region of the Carina Nebula, have discovered dozens of energetic jets and outflows from young stars previously hidden by dust clouds.
